Apple iPhone 7

Apple iPhone 7



Apple has set an event for the 7th of September, in the date of the event lies the clue of the launch of the Apple iPhone 7. Each year like clockwork Apple releases a revision to their flagship smartphone, and till last year their only smartphone line. The iPhone 7 is the next incremental upgrade which usually comes after Apple has already launched a “s” version of the iPhone, in this case the iPhone 6s was launched last year.

Launch

Just as mentioned above, one thing we know for sure is that Apple will launch the iPhone 7 on 7th September 2016. The iPhone 7 will then possibly go up for sale a week later. Pre orders should begin with a few hours from launch.


Design

If rumours and leaks are to be believed. Apple will launch the iPhone 7 in a design which is quite similar to that of the iPhone 6 and 6s, however there are major differences in the way that the back looks and minor differences in some aesthetics. The overall shape will remain the same the antenna lines will be moved around, a design which supposedly will improve antenna performance. The antenna bands now also look slightly neater, tucking in to the top and bottom edges instead of lapping around the back of the phone. The camera bump will also be different, a larger lens for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and a dual camera setup for the iPhone 7 Pro.

Apple is also said to be removing the 3.5 mm headphone jack in an attempt to make the iPhone more water resistant or maybe even waterproof.

Headphone Jack

The removal of the headphone jack has been the highlight of every leak and rumour since the iPhone 7 leaks started. Will Apple really ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack in the iPhone 7? The industry is already ready for the big change and leaks have also redied the consumers enough. Although we wouldn’t be surprised if the leaks turn out to be untrue. For now no can can say with certainty, but the headphone jack may retire in 2016 thanks to the iPhone 7.


Camera

Apple is making significant changes to the cameras on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus (and possibly the Pro ), If Apple does launch three variants, expect the iPhone 7 to do large megapixel stills with 4k video and possibly Slo-mo 1080p at 240fps. The iPhone 7 may even shoot 4k UHD video at 60fps. The iPhone 7 pro is said to have a dual camera setup, this may be the same phone as the iPhone 7 plus, or may be an independent handset altogether. The dual camera could be used for any existing technology like; post focus, dedicated monochrome imaging and colour imaging. 3D imaging, or simply higher dynamic range.
