Ever since Apple announced the launch of the iPhone 7, rumors swirled about what the new model would look like and be capable of doing. But, one thing’s for sure: Apple customers are still lining up to buy the upgraded model. With the sleek, new high-gloss jet black finish among the color choices, do you want to purchase an iPhone 7 or will you wait for the 8?
Our iPhone 7 wish list and what we got:
Anyone who has ever been caught in a rainstorm or thrown into a pool with a phone in their pocket knows just how important a waterproof phone can be. Many competitors have introduced waterproof phones, including the Samsung Galaxy S7, which can be submerged in water for up to thirty minutes without affecting the functionality of the phone. The iPhone 7 offers water-resistant protection because of its reengineered enclosure and the fine print offers sensibilities, “iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are splash, water, and dust resistant and tested under controlled laboratory conditions with a rating of IP67 under IEC standard 60529. Splash, water, and dust resistance are not permanent conditions and resistance might decrease as a result of normal wear. Do not attempt to charge a wet iPhone; refer to the user guide for cleaning and drying instructions. Liquid damage not covered under warranty.”
Brass tacks – don’t jump in the pool with your iPhone 7.
New protective casing
Before the iPhone 6 was released, many industry insiders predicted it would come with a shatter-resistant sapphire screen, but it hasn’t happened, yet. Now, years later, customers are still hoping for it with the release of the iPhone 7. What we got? A lot. The reengineered enclosure and home button on the iPhone 7 provides an advanced solid-state design to outperform previous models. It is durable, responsive, and pressure sensitive. It works seamlessly with the Taptic Engine, offering a customizable, precise tactile response when you press it.
The new iPhone 7 color, jet black, is said to be crafted from bead-blasted aluminum, our new black model has a rich, deep matte finish. Apple has designed an outstandingly precise, nine-step process of anodization and polishing within the high-gloss, jet black finish.
Apple users have often complained about the battery life of current iPhone models, so it’s no surprise there’s a high demand for a longer lasting battery with the release of the iPhone 7. As promised, Apple hooked us up with a longer battery life – the longest ever. Wirelessly charging is anticipated for the iPhone 8 to help eliminate the need to have to find an electrical outlet or invest in a separate charging phone case.
As the screens get bigger, many Apple users are wondering if Apple will make the iPhone 7 compatible with the Apple Pencil. The iPad Pro is certainly popular, especially with its compatible bestie, but we may have to wait for the iPhone 8 before we get that feature. iPhone 7 offers advanced touch technology and even more touch screen features.
The iPhone 5c came in a variety of colors, but besides this model, Apple has held tight to black, silver, gold and rose gold. The jet black color sold out in the iPhone 7 pre-order stage within hours.
