The hype surrounding Aple Inc. is starting to surge as the company’s September releases come into view. If the traditions of the U.S. tech giant are anything to go by, then the tech world can look forward to some exciting new releases in the next few months. Among the gadgets that are expected to drop this Fall is the iPhone 7 as well as the company’s next Apple Watch.
iPhone 8 takes center stage this year
However, as if the rumors about this year’s iPhone are not enough, some fans have already set their sights on the 2017 edition. Early reports of the iPhone 7 have experts saying that this year’s device won’t be much of an upgrade. Apple is thought to be saving a mind-blowing revolution for its iPhone 8.
The iPhone 8 is expected to flaunt a look that is unlike Apple’s traditional design. Next year’s gadget should offer visuals through a curved display, sources insist. The curved glass would be something close to the displays of Samsung Galaxy handsets. Beyond its looks, talks of how the iPhone 8’s design will affect the device’s price are cropping up as well.
“The biggest visual change for the iPhone 8, expected in 2017, is the curved, all-glass construction of the devices that will be seen as the tenth anniversary iPhone,”reports Ewan Spence. The man goes on to state that the cost of the design overhaul could result in a significant price increase to the iPhone 8.
“Curved glass looks easy, but there is a lot more to consider,” Spence explains.
For this year’s iPhone, alleged new leaks continue to show up with support from “expert” commentary. They suggest some new and useful qualities will be instilled in the iPhone 7. The weak waterproofing rumors about Apple’s newer generations are now starting to intensify too. They also add weight to talks of the device’s audio jack removal.
Durable iPhone 7 from Apple
Writer Gordon Kelly of Forbes seems adamant that, besides the routine audio gossip, “the big news is IP68 water resistance and wireless charging.”
The next iPhone could offer its users some new charging solutions, according to Kelly. Waterproofing at IP68 means the iPhone 7 can be submerged in water for up to 30 minutes. So does Apple Inc. expect users to dunk their phones in water? Not likely.
However, though recognized as a premium handset, the iPhone range isn’t known best for its durability. The tech firm looks to be trying to change that, and it should come as huge help to its users.
The iPhone 7 range may not have a standard 3.5mm audio jack. It’s removal is said to help shave a few millimeters off the device and enhance the waterproofing as well.
The normal expectations regarding the iPhone 7 range is the standard deviation between the 7 and it Plus model. The Plus is expected to hold better camera quality.
“Whatever Apple decides, the Plus model is going to have a superior camera to the smaller iPhone,”Mashable writes.
That extra camera lens is often cited to be the cause of the upped price too. The Pus version could have an option with a storage capacity of up to 256GB as well.
