The next big thing, iPhone 7
July 18, 2016
Apple is known to do pretty amazing things and oh boy, this year can be termed as their best one till date. Apple recently announced the iOS 10 update for their iPhones and now the next big thing from their stable is the iPhone 7.
iPhone 7- The much anticipated release of the year. Following Apple’s track, 2016 will bring an even-year upgrade that will include a new iPhone design in addition to new features. So let’s go on with the long list of improvements that Apple is going to include in the iPhone 7.
The next –generation iPhone is expected to be called the iPhone 7, but there have been rumors suggesting that Apple could introduce 3 versions of iPhone 7, iPhone 7, iPhone Pro and iPhone 7 PLUS. The iPhone 7 may be somewhat thinner than the iPhone 6s due to elimination of the headphone jack, advances in chip packing technology, and a slimmer lightning port. You might think that elimination of the headphone jack is a bad idea but Apple is planning to throw earphones which will connect to the lightning port of the iPhone 7 to give you great music. New developments suggest that the iPhone 7 will be equipped with a dual –lens camera which would greatly improve the image quality. However, Apple is going to include the same 12 MP camera from the iPhone 6S. The front of the iPhone is also expected to see some changes with a longer earpiece cutout and a relocated ambient light sensor. Also Apple is planning to change the design of antenna bands on the device as they will be putting the antenna bands on the top and bottom of the device only. It is also speculated that Apple is working on a set of wireless Bluetooth earphones that would be sold alongside the iPhone 7 as a premium accessory and an alternative to the EarPods. Rumors have also surfaced that a Smart Connector is present on the back of the device just like that we saw on the iPad PRO and it will let you connect your iPhone to the keyboard and many other gadgets.
Not much of a difference is to be expected between iPhone 7 and the previous models, but there are surely many things to look forward to. iPhone 7 is expected to be slightly slimmer than the previous ventures due to non-availability of a headphone jack, making its design look better. The battery life in iPhone 7 will be slightly better than that of iPhone 6s.
The prices of the iPhone 7 will start from 60,000 Rupees and will climb up to 95,000 for the PRO version. Only time will tell about the success of the latest iPhone.
