Today is a pretty big day of the year for Apple lovers! As we mentioned previously, the Apple iPhone 7 is expected to be launched today, among a few other Apple products. The new iPhone 7 is most likely not going to have a ton of groundbreaking new features or ahead-of-its time technology, but there are a few nice new upgrades from the iPhone 6.
Let's take a look at some of the possible upgrades that iPhone junkies can look forward to...
One of the biggest rumors floating around is that the Apple has removed the headphone jack from the iPhone 7 devices. In its place will be another speaker. Most likely, they're trying to move forward with a more wireless, tangle-free approach, since we're moving toward a completely wireless existence now already. The new iPhone 7 will instead rely on wireless tethering methods like Bluetooth. Some people don't seem super excited about the missing headphone jack, but maybe they should...
Removing the headphone jack also removes an entry point for dust, moisture, and anything else that could possibly muck up the internal components of delicate devices like this. Rumor has it that the new Apple phone will be a water-resistant iPhone 7, which is long overdue.
The more storage space, the better these days! Apple is finally doing away with their entry-level 16GB storage option on the iPhone 7. Instead, they will now offer smartphones with 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage capacities. That's some great news as we move toward a time when 4K video and high-res images are commonplace!
Not surprisingly, the iPhone 7 will also feature a more advanced processor. While the processor in the iPhone 6 was nothing to sneeze at, the new A10 iPhone 7 processor—a 64-bit 4-core processor—is supposed to be a real monster! Some experts claim that the iPhone 7 can even perform as well as (if not better than) the Apple iPad Pro.
Battery drain is always a pretty sucky thing for anyone with a smartphone. But, iPhone 7 users can now reportedly enjoy shorter charging times, thanks to fast charging technology, and longer usage. Anyone upgrading from an iPhone 6S can expect an everage of two additional hours on one full charge.
The iPhone 7 camera upgrades are definitely worth mentioning! Apparently, the camera on these new devices is a drastic improvement on the old iPhone cameras. The iPhone 7 camera has a much more advanced camera sensor and optical image stabilization. The iPhone 7 Plus, however, features a dual camera system, which should be pretty awesome to see in action!
New iPhone 7 consumers will also have a slightly wider range of color choices. Instead of just the old options, the iPhone 7 will be available in glossy jet black, black, gold, silver, rose gold.
Finally, the moment many of you have been waiting for...price. You're probably wondering just how much is the iPhone 7 and when can we order it, right? Well, the smallest 32GB capacity iPhone 7 will set you back a whopping $649, but of course an installment plan can really take the sting out of that whopping price tag! Consumers are expecting to be able to preorder the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus this Friday, September 9th. Phones will most likely ship on September 16th, so you don't have much longer to wait!
