The lack of the headphone jack is by far the biggest shortcoming in the latest iPhone 7 by Apple which has garnered the maximum flak from smartphone lovers worldwide. Apple’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which were announced in San Francisco on September 7 and are scheduled to start shipping to consumers on September 16, will not have a port for plugging in earphones. The launch of the iPhone 7 may not have been as highly anticipated as that of its previous versions, because of various leaks and rumours. Yet it is expected the sales will go up, especially after the unfortunate Samsung Galaxy Note 7 ‘burning’ issue.

Yet it can be said that Apple has not made too many technological advances with the iPhone 7. The tech giant has squandered its place as the leader in hardware and software design. The company added a dual-lens camera, water resistance feature and an upgraded chipset, yet none of them is actually revolutionary. iPhone lovers worldwide have a few complaints about the missing features in the new iPhone.

iPhone could transcend the 5th dimension

The way Apple had brought a revolution in the smartphone and laptop market, people have always expected them to unveil devices which change the course of history. People expect a Virtual Reality Simulator to integrated biometrics in the iPhone. According to fans and critics alike, the iPhone needs to be integrated with human consciousness, and that will be some experience. People not only want to talk to Siri but also expects her to reads thoughts and guide actions.

Siri could become A.I. like in movies:

When it was launched, SIRI was expected to bring a revolution in its genre. But the fact of the matter is that it still hasn’t been able to be the best artificial intelligence that it could have become. People expect it to be something straight out of the movies. Maybe the next version could be a Jarvis from Iron Man or Scarlett Johansson from the movie ‘Her’. Maybe then people will ‘fall in love with the iPhone’. Siri is expected and should rise above the battle between Microsoft’s Cortana, Google Now and itself and be an AI software which can be used for ANYTHING.

Music that enters directly into the brain:

Leave aside the lack of an audio jack, there should be no headphones. According to people, the music should be able to enter directly into our brains. Maybe a mix of biometrics and neural audio is the answer, which will eventually result in the end of headphone cribs.

GPS could measure things which cannot be, YET.

Apps and devices can capture and measure distances. Location services and GPS use cameras to do the same. But there is nothing to tell you how far you can go to achieve something which is not material. It is high time Apple brings out something which can tell the user how long it will be till he gets some success in life. Critics hope that iPhone can use the lens and light to guess all of that maybe.

Charging on the move, by the move

People expect the iPhone to get charged without plugging in anything. Yes. Nothing at all. No more hoarding and fighting for charging spots. No more carrying heavy power banks. Maybe like regenerative brakes, iPhone will be able to get energy from the walk of the user.
