Apple is famous for keeping secrets when something new is coming along, however if the rumours are right by insiders and devoted fans, a new iPhone is on the horizon and could hit stores across the country this year. Fanatic Apple fan or just curious to see what’s new? Here’s everything you need to know about the iPhone 7:
There’s no doubt that this new iPhone will expensive – it’ll be considerably harsh on the wallets, and more so than it is past counterparts.
Most experts have agreed that the new iPhone will start at £539 for a 16GB model, effectively taking the place of the current iPhone 6s – which will see an incremental drop in price.
If this is true, we could expect other models with larger storage – 64GB and 128GB, are going to stick with the £619 and £699 prices.
- Release Date
Taking Apple’s release date history into account, it’s very likely that we’ll see the official reveal of the iPhone 7 sometime in September 2016.
Two seperately leaked case designs have confirmed that the iPhone 7 will not be getting the dual camera setup of the iPhone 7 Plus. However, on the plus side, it will be getting a much larger single rear sensor than the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S.
Larger pixels will be in use for iPhone 7, too – where individual pixels will help to take in more light, thus producing better results in poor lighting conditions. The iPhone 6S in particular, suffered in this area compared to a number of rival Android handsets (Galaxy S7, Nexus 6P, LG G5) so it makes sense this would be an Apple priority.
Additionally, the dual camera setup of the iPhone 7 Plus is sure to be the best of all the developments.
Subsequently, MacRumors’ case shows that the rumoured design of the iPhone 7 fits almost perfectly around an iPhone 6S, so it does indeed appear that Apple will stick with a virtually identical iPhone 6 design for the third generation running.
Of course, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus may have plenty tricks lefts when it comes to usability. This might be true given the high hopes for iOS 10, which will be launching at the same time with iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
