Wait for the next version of iPhone is almost over, with the anticipated launch of iPhone 7 in the coming month. According to people close to the model make, the latest iPhone will have more advanced photography capabilities and upgraded hardware but in a design similar to that of last year’s models.
Although Apple declined to comment on the make of the model yet, but according to few sources, the standout feature of the phone will be:
- ‘A dual-camera system’ on the larger iPhone
- ‘A re-engineered home button’ that responds to pressure with a vibrating sensation rather than a true physical click
- The ‘Removal of the devices’ headphone jack
A source who used the camera revealed that the 7 Plus will produce brighter photos with more detail. The prototype version of the device uses both sensors at once, with each one capturing colour differently. The data from both sensors is then used to produce a single photograph.
However, there might be a slight disappointment for people who are anticipating a major design change! Because this year, Apple is moving away from the typical two-year iPhone redesign cycle.
iPhone 7 model will look similar to the 6 and 6S, sources said, who added that there will still be noticeable tweaks. The new iPhones will retain the same 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen sizes as their predecessors, the first of which was introduced in September 2014. Apple will remove the two innermost antenna lines that run across the back of the current iPhones.
The new models will run iOS 10, the new version of Apple’s mobile operating system coming this fall. The updated software offers interactive widgets to quickly glance at calendar appointments and favorite contacts, new messaging features, a new application for controlling smart home appliances, and a redesigned Apple Music.
Whether this strategy will be a hit or a miss, is for time to tell. But we can be rest assured that the new launch will come with its new set of features – for the iPhone enthusiasts.
