The all new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus has finally arrived after a very long wait. Those of you who followed the news about the device will know that there have been various predictions about the new device, which have been accurate to an extent. The new phone also brought the new iOS 10 software, which has managed to impress everyone with all the latest features it’s presented. The new iPhone starts off with various additions that are sure to get everyone excited about what’s possible on the latest phone and whether or not it’s worth trading in for the new one.
Holding the new phone, there are definitely new noticeable differences between the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 7. Firstly, the iPhone 7 doesn’t have an earphone jack at all. The camera also looks different, but on a good day, almost as if it has been more refined to provide a smoother finish. The iPhone 7 Plus has a much bigger camera as it features dual lenses. On the back of the device, you’ll also notice that the antenna lines have been shifted to the edge of the phone, giving it a much cleaner, sleeker finish.
The new phone from Apple is complete water and dust resistant. This means the phone can be dropped in wager up to 1 meter deep, but it’s not recommended to leave it there. The phone still provides the amazing metal body, but not also comes in 2 new colours, including dark grey and black. The phone is a lot thinner than before, which is part of the reason the headphone jack has been removed. Instead, Apple has developed wireless earphones, which come as an optional extra at $160. The new earphones are called AirPods and come with a case that charges them. The earphones work really well and pair with the device the moment you open the case. This gives you instant access to your music without the hassle of wires. Users also have the option to add a lightning cable to jack adapter, which lets you plug in your normal earphones.
Apart from the differences mentioned above, the phone looks very much like it’s older brother, the iPhone 6S and 6S plus, which isn’t a bad thing, but this would mark the third device is a row with the smooth edges, making it almost obvious that the iPhone 8 will feature a new design.
Apple Adds LargerBattery to iPhone7
Apple has also announced that the new iPhone has a bigger battery, which extends the battery life even further than the current impressive iPhone 6s devices. A few hardware changes have also taken place, which includes the home button that is completely solid now and provides a new experience with unlocking the device. It still features Touch ID, but instead of pressing the button, you simply touch it. The button has a Taptic engine built in, which provides a feel as it you pressed the button with a slight vibration.
The A10 processor included with the new iPhone is very powerful, but for the time being, users shouldn’t expect the see any major advantages compared to the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. However, the new processor has an advantage as it has 4 cores, including 2 smaller cores that use less power when the device is not in use. This provides longer battery life while also having a super-fast processor ready to take on any tasks you throw at it.
The camera on the 7 isn’t much different from the 6s, but it has been upgraded. The main difference is the front camera, which features a 7MP sensor camera for better video chat. The 7 Plus, however, provides a dual camera, which both consist of 12MP. The lens on the left is a 28mm and the one on the right is a 56mm. This allows users to take advantage of amazing zoom options and low light pictures. However, as for normal picture quality, the pictures are only a little better than the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
It is the opinion that the iPhone 7 is a great device and should be considered for any Apple user that has an iPhone 6 or older. However, for those of you using the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, the upgrade might be worth a wait until the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus is released in 2017.
