The new iPhone 7 and 7 plus are out. There has been a lot of buzz about it but let’s try and implore whether all those memes and the hype is worth it or not?
First it was the makers of titanic and now dear Tim Cook, seems like the world is determined to get rid of Jacks from the planet. If you wanted a jet black iPhone you’d be delighted but if, alike Rose, you loved headphone jack, you’d be upset. But worry not dear friend, the iPhone 7 while doing away with the headphone jack came up with the much talked about AirPods. These AirPods will automatically connect to your iPhone through auto-pairing. Though the hearing experience is wonderful but beware reader, these wireless beings are easy to lose!
This version also introduces new and improved camera systems as well. Although they still kept it fixed at 12 Megapixel, there is a new 7 megapixel front camera instead of a 5 megapixel one. they boast of new aperture settings to let in more light and promise good low light photography. There is a new quad-LED flash and still supports live photos and has RAW image supports. Also it has dual lens to enable further improved and crisper images. So Instagram and Snapchat lovers have something to be happy about!
There are two speakers instead of one this time; one at the bottom, as usual, and one on the top.
The iPhone 7 is the first iPhone to feature a quad-core processor, with two of its cores tuned for performance and two for efficiency. Graphics performance is also improved, 50 percent faster than the Apple A9 and three times faster than the Apple A8. Overall, the iPhone 7 is 240 times faster than the original iPhone for graphics.
This 4.7inch model also promises to be the brightest and most colorful apple display ever. It is 25% brighter than the previous model
and has high Definition Retina Display, so it is easy on the eyes for sure!
A few new feature would include water resistance and an all new color, jet black and there is a new edge to the old and round home button onto this model. It is now in a solid state so basically you cant press or push it now! This new model boasts of a better battery life, something all iPhone users had been desperately praying for!
