The iPhone 7 is just around the corner, with new features and technology to this new Phone. We are here to talk about the good things, the bad things, and the things that may not be so good. Let’s start with the good things, first. The IPhone 7 and the 7 Plus are really fast so that is more than double the speed of the two-year-old iPhone 6. Their cameras give really nice and clear photos. The cameras carry 12 megapixel sensors, and Apple included optical image stabilization, a feature that helps photos remains clear even when your hands are shaky. Then we have the durability to the IPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The iPhones are now water resistant, people have dropped the phone into a bucket of water and the phone turns out to be ok. That does not mean you can play games under water. Another upgrade to the IPhone 7 and 7 Plus is that there is more storage, GB reaches to 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB capacities. With all of these new upgrades we have different colors for the IPhone 7 and 7 Plus. They have glossy jet black, matte black, gold, silver, and rose gold. I personally like the silver and matte black. Glossy jet black is shiny, but you can get a lot of smudges and finger prints on the back that I do not like, so you might as well get a case.
What people are not looking forward to and this has been on almost everybody’s mind, is that the IPhone 7 does not have an audio jack. Now Apple has the new EarPods headphones that connect through the lightning connector port. Apple is also bringing something new and that is the Airpod headset. They work very well and the music sounds clear. The only problem that people have, especially for teens who want to walk around listening to music, is the look of the Airpod headset. People feel awkward wearing them because they look like cigarette butts hanging from your ears. Social media said that they look ugly. Who am I to judge? if something works, I’m happy with it.
Over all the IPhone 7 and 7 Plus are something I’m looking forward to. Yeah it may not have the audio jack but that is ok. The Earpods and the Airpods are just new and innovative technology for Apple so in the future most of us will be walking around the wireless earbuds. Another thing is that the Earpods and the Airpods work better than the audio jack. The IPhone 7 will be available in stores on September 16. If you have anything under an IPhone 6 it is probably time to upgrade this weekend.
