Last Summer, rumors and leaks in regards to Apple’s latest creation, the iPhone 7 series. Just like unsubstantiated information, rumors will remain as it is if there’s no one to confirm those. And right now, Apple had made some ‘official’ statements regarding this one, finally confirming that the leaks are true somehow.
It is very interesting to know that aside from the enhanced features, the latest iPhones, namely the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have new features to show in addition to the previous ones, features that will be discussed here as well.
Just like the previous rumors had suggested, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are going to have enhanced displays, which are revealed to be at least twenty-five percent brighter compared to iPhone 6 and 6s. The 3D touch feature is also said to be enhanced along with the fact that both displays accommodate a wider range of color spectrum. This also means that the color of videos will have significant improvements as well.
Improved Audio and Sound Quality
It is said last time that there are rumors that the company will be removing the 3.5mm audio jack in their later iPhone models, rumors that are confirmed true by the photos released by the company itself. Right now, you can plug your earphones via iPhone 7’s lightning port. There’s no need for you to worry in case that you still use the 3.5mm-supported one since the company will be providing a lightning port adaptor for those. The reason behind the removal is because of the space needed for more useful features.
What’s more interesting is that the latest iPhones are going to introduce wireless options for AirPods by means of infrared technology. Compared to Bluetooth, infrared consumes considerably less power, which is very good. Setting this up only requires you to connect it to your iPhone once and it will be automatically synced to your other devices in no time. Activating Siri is as easy as a double-tap in addition to the fact that AirPods have at least five hours battery life. This is because of the W1 wireless chip that’s going to be featured in wireless Beats headphone as well. However, there are still no press releases in regards to whether the AirPods are also included in the iPhone 7 package upon purchase.
Improved iPhone Performance
If you’re already amazed at iPhone 6 series’ performance, you’re also going to enjoy iPhone 7 series’ performance more. This is because of the fact that both iPhones have A10 fusion chipsets, which are revealed to have four cores compared to A9’s two. This consists of two high-performance cores that are responsible for making the iPhone 7 operate smoothly and two additional high-efficiency cores that are responsible for conserving iPhone 7’s battery power. The whole operation is controlled by a performance controller that automatically determines the cores that are going to be used in each running app.
Longer Battery Power
What are going to do with a latest iPhone model if the battery power isn’t worth it? Apple is also thinking about this matter, therefore resulting to iPhone 7’s battery life. Aside from the fact that the cores are controlling the iPhone’s power consumption, it is also revealed that the latest iPhones also have larger battery power capacity. Because of this, the iPhone 7 series have longer battery life compared to the previous ones.
Apple Pay now has a Wider Payment Range
The company has revealed that iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are going to have Felica payment support option. To those who didn’t know, Felica is a very popular payment option in Japan, the country being one of the biggest mobile payers as of date. In this case, Apple Pay transactions can be made directly via Felica, which can be very convenient on both companies. In addition to that fact, there’s definitely no doubt that iPhone users inside Japan will definitely increase. If you’re using Apple Pay, there will be no need for you to make a separate Felica account just to keep in touch with your mobile payments inside Japan.
When is it going to become Available?
Because of the ‘official’ release, the company had revealed that the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus is going to become available for pre-orders on September 9. However, it is going to become available for store purchase next week, September 16. AirPods, on the other hand, will not be available until October. It is said that both iPhones will have a minimum of 32GB internal storage capacity, confirming that the 16GB variant is also gone for good. However, it is very interesting to know that both iPhones will have the usual price range of previous iPhones, the iPhone7 starting at $649 while the iPhone 7 Plus will start at $769 price tag. And what’s best to know is that the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are both water-resistant, with an amazing IP67 rating. What’s more is that aside from regular color versions, a black variant is going to be released as well.
