There have been strong rumours circulating for some time and now Apple have finally made their official iPhone 7 announcements. Their best handset yet will be on-sale from 16th September.
The usual leaked information surfaced throughout the year and much of the hearsay turned out to be true. The most notable feature of their latest release is the EarPods, a move that sparked anger by many fans just months ago. Over 300,000 fans signed a petition before the earphones were even confirmed, but now it has been made official it seems as though some have taken a liking to this innovative approach. So, what else is new? Apple has faced heavy criticism due to the fact that there doesn’t appear to be multiple changes but many of their improvements have been made internally.
Dust Resistant & Battery Life
You’ll be glad to discover that this tech giant have finally addressed some of the nagging issues of their past models. The new charger that came into force for the iPhone 5 continued to break. This came down to a few reasons, the charger itself and dust getting into the phone. Another problem related to this, was the poor battery life. You’d struggle to get through a day with a full battery, well the iPhone 7 boasts significant improvements on battery life and is also dust and water resistant. The model is more than just aesthetic with many features adding to its durability.
An ensemble on the newest phones that attracted a lot of attention. Although, it underwent a sustained amount of criticism due to the fact that many assumed this was the only real change. That was found untrue at the announcement but they have now officially confirmed the changes made to the latest camera. There advanced technology showcases a 12-megapixel camera with advanced additions. It has a six-element lens, more detailed photos, wide colour capture allowing vibrant colours and 10 times digital zoom.
A look ‘under the hood’ reveals how far these smartphones have come in the last few years. The A10 Fusion chip has four cores and allows its system to run seamlessly. They have also incorporated new additions that allow it to roam without problems.
The speakers on the iPhone 7 put the last model to shame, with the volume being twice as loud. It’s not all brawn either, they also have immersive sound offering a dynamic feel.
How the EarPods Work
It has long been the hottest topic in the technology sphere and it’s now finally out in the open. It’s true, the EarPods are real! These wireless headphones allow quality listening without having to attach a lead to your phone. But the real worry for many was the fact that they couldn’t use their non-wireless headphones they might already own. Well, they have that base covered too. Despite the fact that there is no headphone jack, you can still attach your old headphones. There’s a lightning adaptor that allows you to use the charger slot to listen to your music. The headphone jack has completely gone to make space for the extra speaker quality. One problem some people might find during their scrutiny, is that you won’t be able to use your wire headphones whilst charging.
