After many leaks and rumors, Apple has finally reveal the iphone 7 that Apple users have been anticipatedly waiting for. And something that some people find cringeworthy was that almost all of the rumors were true about the devices.
As users, most of us look for a device that is fast and can keep us with our busy lives. And the iphone 7’s new A10 Fusion chip is 64-bit, Quad-core processor that Apple says is 40% faster that the A9 processor last year. What this means for users is that we can now spend less time waiting, and more time doing, which is great.
As a person that has experienced running out of storage at a desperate moment, I was leased to hear that that the new phones come with more storage. With a base storage of 32GB, instead of the usual 16GB, this will surely pay off for Apple. The other storage options are 1228GB, 256GB, and notice that the 64GB is no longer available. This might be a good change to some, but not so much to others.
And what is larger storage without having long battery life to really take advantage of it. Apple estimates 12 hours of LTE browsing with the iphone 7 and and expects the iphone 7 Plus to deliver two more hours of usage. And as you all might have notice, Apple never reveals the battery’s capacity.
One of Apple’s newest feature is the iphone having speakers both at the bottom and at the top. As always some might appreciate the change while other may think it is a desperate move from Apple.
Camera, in today’s society we want better camera to capture our everyday lives and adventures. And with the new camera that comes in the iphone, we can tell that Apple understands very well. The iphone 7 comes with a six-element lense and 12-megapixel sensor. It comes with OIS, just like all the iPhone Plus versions before. OIS’s mechanism reduces motion and handshake and allows it three times longer exposure than the iPhone 6s. It also has a f/1.8 aperture that captures 50% more light, which means that you will get much better pictures and videos in low light conditions. But if you prefer to go with the 7 Plus, then it gets even better. It comes with two 12-megapixel cameras. One is a wide-angle camera,while the other is a telephoto lens with f/2.8 aperture that brings over optical zoom to the device. The telephoto lens also adds a depth-of-field effect to images, but it will be coming via a software update that will be released sometime in the coming weeks. The ISP uses both cameras to make subjects look sharper, while blurring the background. These are the features of DSLR cameras. Both devices come with a 7 megapixel front facing camera with f/2.2 aperture that has auto image stabilisation and does Fill HD video recording. With all these new features of the cameras, you’re one click away from the perfect picture and video.
When I heard that the iPhone 7 would be arriving without a headphone jack, I wasn’t shaken at all, because I use bluetooth headphones anyway. But for users that prefer wired headphones, Apple just made the wrong move. Apple sees creating the AirPods as a way to move into a more futuristic design rather than continuing with the headphone jack. And I know that most people find this as a deal breaker because I have been hearing not-so-thrilling things concerning the lack of headphone jack all over the media and places I’ve visited. iPhone users and even people that aren’t so interested in Apple products seem to be upset about it’s removal. And I would like to know how many of you appreciate the change, how many of you didn’t welcome it, and how many of you don’t mind it’s removal.
One feature that everyone is welcoming with open arms is the new IP67 water-resistant feature. Some of the words that comes with it is “finally”, “it’s about time”, and “I thought it would never happen”. Despite all of the grumbling about the new feature, people are still happy that it is here.
If a user is new to a certain type of device, usually the color is what makes them approach it. This year Apple decide to make the devices a little more approachable with it’s colors. The Iphone 7 and 7 Plus comes in gold, silver, rose gold, matte black and the already popular jet black. But unfortunately, the jet black is only available in 128GB and 256GB
For resolution, the iphone will stay the same as the last year generation. The 4.7 and 5.5 inches displays has a resolution of 1920×1080-pixel resolution at 401 ppi.
Some of you might be interested in these devices, but they only thing you’re concerned about, is the price. Now, if you’re familiar with Apple you already know that their products have prices that are usually frowned upon by buyers with tighter budgets. And if you’re one of those buyers, then I recommend you save up before buying on impulse.
These are the prices of the devices:
|iPhone 7 Plus||32GB||$769||£719||AU$1,269|
