IPHONE 7 RUMORS WE’VE HEARD SO FAR

GREAT EXPECTATIONS

Photos of what are thought to be the iPhone7, iPhone 7 Plus, and a curious addition to the flagship line, the iPhone 7 Pro, are circulating online. Everyone’s holding their breath for the September 2016 release of the next generation iPhone, but will the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus meet and hopefully exceed expectations? Will the new iPhones offer up some kind of wish fulfillment especially for those that have been following Apple for the longest time?

 

ON THE SURFACE

  • BODY  

The iPhone 7 will retain the aluminum unibody that the previous generation was encased in, but with one noticeable change. We’re finally saying goodbye to the dreaded antenna bars, AKA the iSores, but the four basic iPhone colors–space grey, gold, rose gold, silver–are here to stay. Feeling blue? Rumor has it that Apple is onto releasing a new dark blue color to add to its basic lineup.

Another body feature that the iPhone 7 Plus might have is the Smart Connector which you may already know from the iPad Pro.


Apple fans, get ready for a thinner, lighter iPhone 7. The headphone jack will be a thing of the past, something that will allow for a thinner body. Let’s see what Apple has up its sleeve to replace it but we guess you’ll just have to wait until Fall 2016 to find out.

  • DISPLAY

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will keep the same TFT-LCD as its predecessor, and their screens will be the same 4.7 and 5.5-inch sizes, respectively. Sources say Apple is working on AMOLED displays for future iPhones, so while this upgrade is still under development, Apple may go back to glass-on-glass screens. This could mean better screen resolution and a possible minimized bezel.

  • FUNCTION BUTTONS

Remember the circular, clicky home button? It might not be there for long, as the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus may only feature a touch-sensitive pad in its place.  

  • CAMERA

The iPhone’s camera is undeniably the king of phone cameras, but the Cupertino-based company has another boon in store for the next generation iPhone buyers. iPhone 7 Plus will have a dual lens camera, reminiscent of the LG G5 and the Huawei P9. Unlike the iPhone 6S, the iPhone 7’s camera will be flush and even, so no more weird camera lens catching on anything.


WHAT’S INSIDE

  • PROCESSOR

While little is known about the new processor, rumor has it that the dual core processor in the iPhone 6S will be upgraded to a hexacore A10 chip in the iPhone 7.

  • BATTERY

One thiNg that we are sure to cause more hurrahs from the public is a bigger battery for the iPhone 7, because bigger battery means longer battery life. A longer battery life means a whole lot of other things for a user, like more Pokémons to catch perhaps?

MONEY TALKS

  • PRICE

Here comes the big question–how much will the new generation iPhones be?

Like the usual pricing scheme, the iPhone 7 will cost as much as the iPhone 6S which will then see a considerable price drop. So how much did you say it will be? Roughly around £539/$649 for the lowest priced variation.
Now it’s a waiting game for the entire public. We have less than 2 months to find out if the iPhone 7 will be tech manna from heaven, so let’s watch and see if September brings an early Christmas gift for Apple and non-Apple fans alike.
