The iPhone 7 smartphone was released by Apple into the market sometime in 2016. It is a flagship of Apple’s new generation devices as it is a major upgrade of the preceding iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Apple has a reputation for being one of the top mobile phones and indeed computing gadget producers in the world. The company does not just produce qualitative products but has a way of marrying quality with amazing design. No wonder their products are among the most sought after on the market.
Now, what makes the iPhone 7 tick? Several changes have been made to upgrade the smartphone quality and speed. There is a new home button, a better camera, fabulous display, swifter processor, and longer battery life. To cap it all, iPhone 7 is water and dust resistant. Now how about that for a phone? It seems Apple did their homework on this one to fix all of their mistakes in previous versions of iPhone.
One major upgrade in this phone, however, is the abandoning of the earpiece port which previous versions came with. Apple has decided to instead give you the option of using wireless earphones or airpods as they are called. You could also make use of earphones connected to the lightning connector. To achieve this the manufacturer has provided a fitting adapter that lets you connect a regular earphone through the lightning connector to enjoy a better listening experience.
With all of these, it is expected that you are itching to get more insight into the iPhone 7 specifications. In the next section, we shall be discussing some of the features of the iPhone 7.
SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
Looking at the iPhone 7 at a glance you could almost mistake it for an iPhone 6S. This is because both phones have very similar bodily designs. They are both the same size and about the same weight. Apple has however intelligently made a few alterations. Firstly, as we stated earlier, the earphone port has been discarded. You now need wireless AirPods to connect or simply use the adapter provided to connect to the lightning connector. Apple also dropped one of the colors from the previous iPhone 6S, Space Grey. Three other colors have however been added to the array of iPhone 7 colors. They are Jet Black, Red, and Black. These make the number of colors available 6 since we still have silver, rose gold, and gold. Finally, iPhone 7 comes with a water resistance feature. It can last for 30 minutes under up to one meter of water.
Considering facts stated on paper one will believe that this smartphone has the same display qualities as its predecessor. It comes with the same 4.7-inch IPS display. The screen is packed with 750 x 1334 pixels equipped with 3D touch. Apple is, however, claiming there is a difference between iPhone 7 and iPhone 6S. The manufacturer says the newer phone has a display that is 25% brighter than its predecessor. This helps for a better outdoor experience. You can also be assured of a more brilliant screen due to the infusion of a wider color gamut in the iPhone 7.
In this world taken over by social media cameras are everything. If paperwork is anything to go by then it is safe to say the cameras in the iPhone 7 are no different from what is obtainable in its predecessor. The same 12MP back camera, what’s different? The camera is designed to be faster and more energy-efficient based on the new sensor. There is also a larger aperture allowing for more light, approximately 50% to hit the camera sensor. Added to this is a 6 element lens system and the Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). All of these put together to ensure a better picture experience. The selfie camera has gotten an upgrade from 5MP to 7MP. This implies a better selfie experience for the user. Asides from these everything else is the same as the iPhone 6S.
Hardware and Software
This smartphone is definitely faster and more efficient than its predecessor. Firstly it is equipped with a better processor. iPhone 7 comes with the A10 Fusion chip which has double the speed of the A8 in the iPhone 6 and A9 in the iPhone 6S. The processor is quad-core having a 64-bit architecture and a Hexa-core processor for graphics alone. That’s definitely not all. Apple fixed in the iOS 10 to ensure the device runs on an almost flawless platform. The iPhone 7 comes in three internal memory variants, 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB. Capping it up iPhone 7 can support up to 450mbps of 4G LTE so you are bound to enjoy an amazing internet experience.
