iPhone 7 Anticipation

Posted March 24, 2016 by JR Ramos in News

It’s almost upon us, it’s massively hyped and rightly so, and we are itching to get our hands on the new iPhone 7.

With Apples biggest launch of 2016 expected in September, those rumors that surround any new release of consequence are already beginning to seep out. One thing is for certain and that is the new iPhone is going to have to be pretty special to match the two very well received devices (the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus.) So what can Apple do to take their popularity even further?

This new launch already has stiff competition as rival handset like the LG G5 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 could damage Apple pretty well, so the iPhone 7 does need to be something pretty special, and a little different.

We can probably expect two iPhones launching in September as the size split has proved popular in previous years, so a pretty certain guess is that we will see a 4.7 inch iPhone 7 and a 5.5 inch iPhone 7 Plus.

When you look at the previous dates for the release of past iPhones we may well expect this new release to fall on either Friday, September 16th or Friday September 23rd, of course all of this is total speculation but fun to do.

On a more serious note, it would seem reasonable to expect the introduction of a brand new processor with Apple’s A10 system on a chip featuring in the new iPhone 7. This will assure improvement to graphics and processing. The new software version is expected to be revealed possibly in June 2016 at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference.

There is also a rumor that Apple is going to get rid of the 3.5mm headphone jack with users having to us the Lightning port instead. This will mean that many users will have to buy an adapter or use Bluetooth headphones, but don’t take that rumor as gospel and go throwing your headsets away. It’s possible that Apple will bundle the phone with wireless Beats in ear headphones, plus the inclusion of duel speakers, but again rumors are just that, rumors.

We can also expect camera upgrades as there is definitely potential to get optical image stabilization on the smaller of the iPhone 7 which has been something that Apple have reserved for the Plus models until now. Hopefully there will be improved low light performance on both of the models.

Apple devices always command a great deal of hype and existing fans of the brand will not take a lot of convincing that this is going to be a top phone although Android is now a powerful operating system, being sleek and simple to use as any iOS.

We all know that both iPhone and Android devices have excellent apps which cover a whole range of lifestyles from how to save money like Mint and Acorns to entertainment and spending some spare cash at Bingosites.uk. Life before apps surely must have been dull and lack luster, and trying new apps on a regular basis has become a firm favorite with many users who publish what they think would interest others. This service is really useful to those of us who do not have the time or inclination to sift through the load of new apps that hit the App and Play Store each week.

But back to the iPhone 7.

Another rumor is that Intel is wooing Apple in order to supply the modems for the new device. Until now it has been Qualcomm that has been the main supplier for modems in all of Apples mobile devices. Intel is rumored to have a 1,000 strong workforce on the case. Qualcomm is still providing a significant share of the modems so the company has not been entirely shut out, although the consensus is that Apple is looking to take itself away from third-party suppliers in the future.

And finally for many the question is, what’s the new iPhone 7 going to cost us? Well it’s not really that tough to guess pretty accurately as we can base the cost on past models.
