Apple’s new iPhone 7 will be released this year in September and we all are expecting this device to be utterly different from their iPhone 6s inside and out. It is likely that the iPhone 7 will feature a brand new and improved Jony Ive design. Plus, everyone is looking forward it to be the thinnest and satin Apple device so far with good looks and some brand new features with it.
Recently last month, Apple unveiled their iPhone sales which had decreased and they lost £140 million in the market value of Apple’s shares. This clearly means that Apple will have to work hard in order to convince their existing iPhone users so that they upgrade to their upcoming iPhone 7 this September and also compete with Android devices like the Samsung Galaxy S7 which is also releasing this year.
Let’s just start and analyse the latest news and rumors about Apple’s soon to be released iPhone 7.
Latest news and rumors claim that Apple might use a dual camera setup for their new iPhone 7 Plus, but it could be that the dual camera display could be the same size as a Plus included with the new dual camera. It is expected to be called the iPhone 7 Pro and could be featured as a supercharged phablet and Apple might also release three different versions of the iPhone 7. Having three iPhone models appears to be beyond belief, but so did the Apple’s larger Plus version device which turn out very well.
Few months back, it was rumored that the iPhone 7 could be charged wirelessly, but this rumor seem less likely now. Apple is currently working on wireless charging but it is way too far from conventional, according to Bloomberg. Instead, Apple is developing on “cutting-edge” technology which will allow iPhones and iPads to charge without cables or charging mats. But it won’t be here until 2017. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to see this feature on the iPhone 7. It is very hard to comment on rumors of this new technology.
It is also rumored that iPhone 7 will feature a totally improved camera for this handset. Apple’s new iPhone 7 will use a new dual camera system with an Optical Zoom and 2-3x magnification, according to Apple’s Analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo at KGI securities. This new system/feature reportedly is from Linx. This company was brought by Apple a year ago. However, this new dual camera system is configured to be featured only on the iPhone 7 Plus.
It is also predicted that Apple’s new iPhone 7 will feature a built-in Touch ID and will have a screen made of sapphire glass. Apple already is using this for their Apple Watches and they might be ready to import this element into their devices.
Apple’s new iPhone 7 might move to glass-on-glass screens which possibly will have a QHD or even a 4K display. Many Android devices already have QHD screens and the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium has a 4K display, therefore it is likely that the iPhone 7 might jump up the resolution. If this is true, then the iPhone 7 might also get bigger and could see a 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 7 models.
Regarding the price for the new iPhone 7, there isn’t any price rumors. However, it is likely that the new iPhone will be costly and it could be around £539/$649.
There are various news and rumors that the iPhone 7 will be waterproof. Apple has filed a patent for ports that ejects water, this is the main challenge to make a waterproof handset.
Apparently, the patent shoes a connector which is covered by a self-healing elastomer, according to Electronic Device with Hidden Connector. The patent includes the elastomer to penetrate of a probe and self-seal once the probe is removed. The port is isolated from the elements at all times which still allows easy and quick access for charging the handset or use the headphones.
Several news claim that the company wants to include a superfast Li-Fi internet on their iPhone 7. Li-Fi transfers information in a dual technique by using light. Not like Wi-Fi which uses radio waves. Li-Fi creates a network by using light spectrum. This will allow data to be communicated through light bulbs rapidly which will have 1GB/sec transfer speed, way faster than an ordinary Wi-Fi.
However, this feature it not so clear. Usually, Apple waits for a while before they introduce a new technology to their products and Li-Fi is currently on its testing phases.
The next iPhone is predicted to feature the latest A10 processor and RAM of 3GB. This will make the new device even more energy- efficient and even faster than their predecessor.
Just like in 2014 and 2015, everyone is expecting for the iPhone 7 to be launched in September this year along with iPhone 7 Plus. Apple has been unveiling their iPhone Plus for the past 2 years, therefore the pattern is very easy and simple to follow.
