Today has been an interesting day for Apple fans with the confirmation of the iPhone 7 and all of its features. There are some great benefits such as the minimum storage size being 32GB because clearly 16GB was never enough!
Apple iPhone 7 latest features and improvements:
- The A10 processing chip is a “64-bit quad core with 3.3 billion transistors. The chip has 50x faster graphics processing and the processor is 120x quicker than the original iPhone. Astonishing does not quite cut it with the innovation going on here!
- No more headphone 3.5mm aux slot. This is one of the most controversial elements of the phone but Apple has removed it to create a slimmer phone. The headphones provided are wireless ear pods with 5 hour battery life. Technology inside the headphones will not play unless they are in your ear, as detected by the ear pods.
- They have mentioned a converter for traditional 3.5mm headphones.
- Two rear facing 12MegaPixel on the iPhone 7 Plus and a single on the iPhone 7. The new camera(s) help to create better picture quality and definition in a matter of 25 milliseconds. The f/1.8 aperture should help to take shots in darker light settings. The iPhone 7 plus has a wide angle and telephoto camera design.
- Water and dust resistance to help protect your device in all elements. They don’t mention waterproof but the iPhone 6s and Apple Watch were known for being fairly good even in short times with exposure to water – unofficially.
- Colours include; jet black, black, silver, gold and rose gold. The black colour is a replacement of space gray.
- Longer battery life and better efficiency as part of the devices elements. They estimate it to be 2x longer than the battery life of the iPhone 6.
