Apple iPhone 7
There’s no doubt that the Apple fans are expecting a lot out of their favorite smartphone. Even after so many days of iPhone 7 news coming around, we are still waiting to hear anything official about it. Let’s have a look at all the things in a nutshell.
iPhone 7 & Plus Release Date
Since 2013, Apple has been maintaining a release schedule in the month of September each year for the release of iPhones. On 10 September 2013, Apple had released the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S. Next year, again in September, this time on September 9, Apple launched the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Another interesting thing to note is that 10 September 2013 was a Tuesday and so was the day on 9 September 2014. Though 9 September, 2015 wasn’t a Tuesday, Apple still released the iPhone last year. So, if we were to consider the launch of a new iPhone, that pretty much looks to be set for a Tuesday, which quite possibly be the case this time too. Global release will follow by the month end.
However, this time iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus may be released on different dates.
3.5mm Headphone Jack
In the early days of the iPhone 7 rumors, the absence of the 3.5mm headphone jack was the talk of the town. Thy said, the removal of the headphone jack would lower the thickness of the phone by 1mm. That was something pretty new and talks revolved around the topic of what would Apple would if they are removing the headphone jack. This particular Apple iPhone 7 news hasn’t still died down. One of the latest report a couple of days ago says that Apple won’t introduce anything new in this iPhone as they are working on some technologies, which is going to take time. And considering the Apple iPhone 7 price, it might not be reasonable at the moment.
A lot of leaks and rumors also centered around the dual-camera setup of the Apple iPhone 7. Many images surfaced on the Internet showing the dual-cameras on the device’s back. No wonder, all such images were fake as there’s still no word officially from Apple regarding this.
Apple iPhone 7 Price in India
Apple devices have always eluded the middle class consumer in India, due to the high price tag of these smartphones. So what would the Apple iPhone 7 price in India would be is a matter of curiosity for many Indian customers.
Based on the history and some speculations, we can say that the 16GB variant will cost $850, while the 16GB will carry a cost of $1000. The top-end variant with 128GB will be the most expensive with $1100.
The latest iteration of iPhones – the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, Apple had increased the megapixel aspect. So, it does not look like there will be any considerable improvement in the new iPhone 7 camera. The earlier version came with 8MP, while the latest being 12MP shooter. Though, the camera isn’t likely increase in MP, Apple may introduce some new features instead.
The new Apple device will run on iOS 10, the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system. So, it will get all the new features, which goes without saying.
The iPhone 7 battery will be making use of layered battery units. This makes it possible for Apple to use all the (empty) space inside the chassis. No wonder, this will make the iPhone 7 battery more powerful than before.
Normally, the iPhones come in three memory options – 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variants. However, rumors claim that this time, Apple will remove the basic 16GB variant and start with 32GB instead. So, the three variants will be 32GB, 64GB and 128GB.
