Anticipating the new iPhone? Hint: Don’t bank on Apple changing the design of the iPhone. We all love Apple’s OS–some more than others–let’s change the look a little! The iPhone’s design is beautified and simple, which takes a little away from the element of surprise when Apple announces a new iPhone, the design is almost predictable. Rumors go, Apple’s iPhone 7 will have the screen wrapped around the phone, adding functionality and user experience on the sides of the phone. But! There are other sources that say the OLED screen is only patented, with hopes of releasing somewhere in 2018. One fact about the new design, Apple continues to thin the iPhone–making it look sleeker with each release.
iPhone 7 will be the thinnest Apple explored-to-date, which means? A lighter phone! To paint you a better picture, thickness of the iPhone 6 and 6s is 7.1 mm –subtracting a whole millimeter will bring it to an impressive 6.1 mm, said Japanese tech site Macotakara. How did they manage to chop off a whole millimeter? By depriving us of the headphone jack, taking this one component out of the iPhone build, gives them room for more opportunities to sell more of their products and trap us even more-so in the “Apple Ring”. From a marketers point of view, it makes sense to take out old technology and move forward with new technology replacement, bluetooth.
Bluetooth technology has improved in mobile devices by a long-mile since the early 2000’s when the connections were inferior to the almighty and all enduring– headphone jack. Stepping into the consumers shoes, it sucks! Just another accessory that must be bought to achieve maximum happiness while using your iPhone, which is something the world longs for–happiness. In other words? People will complain, then follow, purchase and smile, just like every Apple fan walking out an electronic store with a new Apple product–Apple Zombies.
Talks about shrinking, included the lightning port cable; making the wire thinner and keeping the same boot (the tip, which you plug into the phone) size from iPhone 6 and 6s models. This saves all the extra iPhone chargers back at home.
My personal favorite iPhone 7 feature is the Wet Finger Support technology–I suffer from wet fingers all the time, as I indulge in snacks while working and mask the snack massacre with wet wipes, wiping off the layer of snack residue on my finger tips…. this makes the present iPhone screen unresponsive. Also, I find myself in “shower meets phone call” scenarios, one of those important calls that you have to take; you’re there but you can’t answer! Why? Wet fingers your honor. Imagine a rainy day.
Apple is blessing thy people with bigger batteries and a faster wifi connection by including electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding technology. The EMI technology was first introduced last year when Apple first launched the Apple Watch. The biggest rumor yet, is the talk about an iPhone 7 Pro, a new addition to Apple’s show line. If there is one product that makes me feel eager, it’s the idea of the iPhone 7 Pro–camera equipped with dual lens system. Picture an iPhone with two camera lenses and two different focal lengths, one lens to magnify and the other for wide angle shots. Release date not rumored, yet.
Expect the release date for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus around September–for Apple’s next round of sales, will they beat last years sales margin? Tune in to find out.
