10 Things You Need To Know About iPhone 7

10 Things You Need To Know About iPhone 7

Every year, Apple’s new iPhone event attracts top concern from around the world. Since the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple has changed its one-handed mobile operating experience and started to offer its fans a large screen. However, the poor design of the appearance has been criticized a lot, especially the bulging camera. Recently, rumors about iPhone 7 have been everywhere online. What would the next iPhone get and what changes would Apple deliver to its fans with the iPhone 7? The below 10 things will help you learn a whole lot more about this upcoming handset.

Anticipated September release

Taking the release date of iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus into consideration, it’s quite possible that Apple would release its new flagship product this September. Also, according to a leaked Vodafone email to its staff, the iPhone 7 release date was more specifically unveiled to be September 25th. The leaked email even revealed that people could pre-order this new iPhone device from September 18.

iOS 9 based new iPhone model

Without any question, the next iPhone will certainly come with iOS 9. This was announced at the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2015 on June 8, 2015. Compared with the release date of previous iOS versions, the official release date of iOS 9 should be September, 2015. It’s already a regular rule for Apple to release iOS beta versions before officially releasing the final version. The new iOS is always prepared for a new iPhone release event.

Front camera: full 1080P at 240fps

“iOS 9 is hinting at future device front cameras having: 1080p resolution, 240fps slow mo, panoramic capture, flash”. This information comes from developer Hazma Sood’s Twitter, which has also unleashed a big clue upon the next iPhone’s front-facing camera. This clue also indicates that the new device would be able to capture panoramic images, 1080p video and slow-motion clips at 240 frames-per-second. This is a big improvement since the current iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus only support 720P video shooting for FaceTime talking. The main camera is also expected to get an upgrade from 8-megapixel to 12MP. No doubt, the upgraded camera would be a big appealing feature for those selfie-mad snappers.

Flash light for facing camera

Currently, any iPhone model is not available with a flash on its front camera. However, this would be changed in iPhone 7. For selfie-lovers, iPhone 7 is a fantasy also because of its newly added flash light for front camera, improving self-capturing experience greatly for dark or low-light circumstances.

Force Touch screen design

According to the report from Macotakara, Apple’s next iPhone would be 0.15mm longer and 0.2mm thicker than existing ones (iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus) because it’s adopting the Force Touch screen board, which has been adopted by Apple Watch. From the tech blog 9to5mac report released last month, Apple would apply this touchscreen board to enhance iMessage, keyboard and Apple Pay performance.

More powerful processor

The next iPhone model would come with Apple’s A9 processor, which is highly likely to feature 2GB of RAM – twice of what’s available in the iPhone 6. According to AppleInsider’s inside man, the new phones will go on sale with a 2GB chip. “Additional RAM would allow iOS to leave background tasks and tabs in Safari open for longer without a need to reload or refresh,” it says. “But additional RAM can also come with costs to battery life, as memory constantly consumes power.”

Better battery performance

Apple iPhone’s battery performance has been long criticized. Since the screen becomes larger, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus battery performance get even worse. Currently, there’s no information on which battery iPhone 7 would adopt. But at least one thing is for sure: there’s now a Low Power Mode built into iOS 9 to help it last even longer. Also, it’s been reported that the new iOS 9 and A9 processor would play an important role on improving iPhone 7’s power and battery performance.

More models available

It’s quite obvious that there would be at least 2 models of iPhone 7, featuring with 4.7″ and 5.5″ screens respectively, just like iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Big screen fans would feel disappointed if Apple gets its 4″ iPhone only on schedule. But it’s reported that Apple would include a 4″ screen iPhone 7 to continue its classic design on iPhone 4S and iPhone 5S. That’s to say, there might be 3 new models of iPhone 7 – 4-inch, 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch.

Color of iPhone 7

The iPhone 7 will still be available in 3 colors, in line with the Watch. That means people could get a darker space grey, a stronger yellow gold, and a new rose gold model of iPhone 7.

Price

There’s no word or official announcement on the cost of the next iPhone. However, taking the specs of the new iPhone and Apple’s price strategy into consideration, the new iPhone would be available at an entry level price of £539 for a 16GB 4.7-inch model, and £619 for the 5.5-inch plus model. The price would be even higher if Apple has been stimulated by its rivals like Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and HTC One M9. Other larger storage iPhone 7 models – 64G and 128G would probably start from £619 and £699 respectively.
