Apple makes its magnificent presence felt yet again, with the launch of iPhone 7 and 7 plus.
The entry is made to look like no less than Greek warriors, Spartans, if we go to the website we see the title saying “this is 7.”, a battle cry to express solidarity and intimidate the enemy.
Apple is definitely back with a bang! In the tech industry the only thing which is constant is ‘change’ and with that said new features are always around the corner and trust us this time apple has a lot of new and awesome changes.
Let’s start with the design
- Water resistance: Finally iPHONE goes water proof, you are protected from spills splashes and even dust (IP67), and its hardware can tolerate immersion in up to 1 meter of water for 30 minutes. So finally those underwater photo shoots are waiting for us, you can also see the fear having our phone left unusable because of water, fly away!
- New finishes (Black and jet black): Despite its signature silver, gold and rose gold finishes, apple has presented a beautiful matte finished black as well a high gloss jet black making our new iPHONE visually even more appealing.
- Brand new home button: The Home button on iPHONE 7 is a solid-state button made to be durable, and pressure sensitive. Working in a team with the new taptic Engine, it gives you precise feedback as you press. And it’s even customizable. The home button gives you a vibration-based taptic feedback; it vibrates after it is touched to give users a response. The feature is already in use on the MacBook laptops. Using a highly advanced fingerprint sensor that’s extremely fast, Touch ID makes unlocking the iPHONE easy and secure.
An entirely new camera
iPhone with the popularity it already enjoys has Now reengineered that camera, adding optical image stabilization, a ƒ/1.8 aperture, and a six-element lens for 4.7 inches, iPhone 7 to make it even better experience for shooting photos and videos in dim light. And with advanced new features which include wide color capture, your photos, and Live Photos will look even more vibrant and sharper. A 5.5-inch iPhone 7 plus handset has a dual-lens camera. This allows a major increase in quality when zooming in on a photo, a problem that has been there for years. The version has two 12MP cameras; one of them is a wide angle lens and the other a telephoto lens that can zoom up to 2X in high quality without using any software. The telephoto lens can zoom up to 10X with optical and soft zoom.
Headphones go wireless
One of the most talked about decisions has been to remove the headphone jack, definitely a relief from the endless mesh of wires; apple calls it wireless, effortless and magical, with an extremely efficient wireless connection driven by Apple W1 chip. They ship the phone with a pair of Lightning EarPods – which one can connect through the charging port.
Infrared sensors sense when a pod is in your ear and motion sensors control the headphones in order to use Siri and detect your voice. The AirPods give five hours of continuous listening and the compact charging case, gives 24 hours of total battery life. Air pods can sense when they’re in your ears and pause when you take them out. And they know when you are talking, a voice accelerometer knows when you’re speaking and works with a pair of beam forming microphones are used to filter out external noise and make the sound of your voice the main focus.
Optical sensors and motion accelerometers control the audio and engage the microphone, making it possible for you to use one or both AirPods. It enables AirPods to play sound as soon as they’re in your ears.
Heightened processing power
The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus use Apple’s most powerful processor ever, the A10 Fusion. With its 64-bit quad-core processor, Apple calls it the most powerful chip ever in a Smartphone. The first two cores give high-performance actions, and the remaining two give high-efficiency. Apple has designed a performance controller to know which actions make use of either set of cores. For example, checking your email will probably be powered by the high-efficiency cores, which makes it easier for saving battery life.
Longest battery life ever in an iPhone
With the help of A10 Fusion chip, this time you’ll get more time between charging your phone than ever before. Apple is treating its customers with up to two more hours on iPhone 7 and one more hour on iPHONE 7 plus than the previous generations of the iPhone.
Apple has definitely showered us with these incredible new features which make it yet again an irresistible choice in the mobile market.
