Apple products have quickly become one of the most anticipated releases of the year. Whether it be a new computer, phone, or watch, people are always speculating on what is going to come next. Every September, Apple announces what the new iPhone will look like and all of the new features it will have. There have been many rumors circulating about how the new phone is changing, so when Apple released all of the new information, there was still uncertainty in the new features.
The new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are both offered in two new colors, Jet Black and Black while Space Grey is no longer available. A major feature that is always improving on cell phones is the camera. On the iPhone 7 Plus, Apple recently changed the game by adding two 12 megapixel cameras on the backside, one wide angle and one telephoto. These two cameras work together as one to provide a much better zoom feature with up to 10x digital zoom. The new models also have a better and brighter retina display, up to 25% brighter, along with better speakers that are twice as loud as the iPhone 6s.
One of the biggest changes, however, is what the iPhone 7 does not have. The new phones no longer have a headphone jack and only have a charging port. This means that more and more accessories will start becoming wireless and bluetooth. The phone comes with an adapter that you can plug into the charging port and use headphones with. Apple also released a new version of their headphones called AirPods. These look very similar to the previous headphones, just without the wire. They are bluetooth so you are able to use them without being right next to your phone. They also begin playing music when you put in your ears and pause when you take them out. The headphone jack was most likely removed so that Apple could make the iPhone 7 waterproof. The new phones are now splash, water and dust resistant.
While the new phones do not have the most dramatic change in features, thousands of people have already pre-ordered the new iPhones, which officially went on sale September 16th. As to be expected, there are already rumors on what will be on the next iPhone as well, but nothing is certain until Apple releases the phone next September.
