Apple iPhone 7 launch: With Samsung Galaxy Note 7 hit by a massive recall in the face of its exploding smartphones, Apple iPhone 7 has received an unintended booster shot just ahead of its surmised launch. There is an Apple event for which media invites have been sent and it is for the 7th of September – it carries this legend: ‘See you on the 7th’. It acquires significance simply because what has been speculated about is the launch of the iPhone 7. Whether this has any link with it or not, is totally unclear, but social media is surely abuzz. Apple itself has been battling a lot of negatives in the recent past as its older phones sales are slowing down and needs a big pick-me-up to restore its lost marketshare and fall in sales. So, check out here what the expectations are for the mega event on Wednesday.
Apple iPhone 7 event
The Apple mega event will be held Wednesday, September 7, at 10 am local time at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, San Francisco. To ensure a wider public can tune in, Apple will live stream the event on it’s website. There is much speculation about what the invite itself is all about. From colour of the iPhone 7s to their water-proof status, all of them have been speculated about, but the photo itself is quite clean of clues except the colourful out-of-focus circles that are a bit transparent. So guess on, till tomorrow at least and read on as well look to clear the fog.
Apple iPhone 7 – headphone jack missing?
One of the hottest topics regarding the iPhone 7 has been about the smartphone’s water-proof status. To be able to get that perfect, the handset may well have had to sacrifice its headphone socket/jack system – the weakest link of the phone regarding the elements and nasty spills. That also means Apple may provide Bluetooth-enabled headphones. Will it up the tech and go farther than that is unclear.
Apple iPhone 7 price
As far as the iPhone 7 price is concerned, since it is a hugely premium phone and is unlikely to come cheap. In fact, it is most probably going to be very pricey indeed. The most recent Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was priced at $891. The iPhone 7 is likely to get a price point around $600 for the low-end handset and over $1200 for the top end smartphone. The phone may be a little more expensive as Apple looks to charge a premium just because it is Apple.
Apple iPhone 7 – water-proof?
A waterproof iPhone is very much on the cards as rivals have already fielded theirs in most markets. While water-proof phones are not the strongest selling points, after all how many people will drop their phones into water or take them along scuba diving? Still, a technology that has already been trotted out by rivals, it will have to be matched by Apple.
Apple iPhone 7 features
As far as iPhone specs and features are concerned, speculation has written an obituary for the 16GB model. Now, with users looking to save virtually everything they do on their handsets, from photos, videos, music to all kinds of personal daily-use data points, the need for a basic 32GB gadget is widely expected.
Apple iPhone 7 camera/s
Apple iPhones have come in for a lot of flak regarding their cameras. Rival companies have stolen the thunder in this regard and the US co is expected to steal a march on them this time around. The invite itself is lending itself to rumours as the circles in the photo showcase effects that only some really high end cameras can achieve. Also, in ads that have been running for long, Apple has been promoting its cameras’ achievements when clearly they were not the best on offer. perhaps, the company was preparing the ground for such an eventuality. Rumours also have it that the new iPhone will pack dual cameras.
Apple iPhone 7 battery
Another feature that might see the light of day on an iPhone is the fast charging battery. Since this is arguably the best premium handset of them all, a battery that charges the way an ordinary phone does is clearly a loss-making proposition. People just doesn’t have the time for anything these days that takes more than two shakes of a cat’s tail, and if the tech is not up to date with their pace of life, then it will not enter into their buying vision.
From the standout plain white or black iPhones that Steve Jobs set out to sell, Apple has become quite a colourful company, perhaps jarringly so. With this new flagship smartphone, the company may just stick to its rainbow colours. Again, the invite itself is hinting at a number of colours from blue, red, yellow, white and more. Also, each colour may well have different specs to go with it.
