You think that after iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, it would be a bit of a gap before we started talking about iPhone 7, however, that is not the case. Geeks are already busy talking about iPhone 7 concept and what amazing features would be sported by iPhone 7. According to the rumors going on, there is a total of 6 new features that you can look forward to. Read on to find out what they are!
6. Headphone Jack Is Being Ditched
This might turn out to be hassle, however, we are hoping that this hassle results in some quality sound. According to the rumors going on, Apple is going to say goodbye to the headphone jack and the accompanying earbuds will connect via the Lightning port. Yes, all the current earphones you own won’t be connectable to iPhone 7. Again, we are hoping that this would result in an increased quality of sound.
5. iPhone 7 Will Be Rugged
It is being believed that Apple’s new iPhone, iPhone 7, shall feature a material other than the high-grade aluminum and this material would make it rugged. According to the rumor mill; it will be water and dust proof so the accidental droppings and spills on the phone wouldn’t be as fatal as they are as of now.
4. iPhone 7 Is Supposed To Be Thin
According to some speculations, iPhone 7 would be only 6mm thick. This is the same thickness as that of an iPod Touch. The question remains that would such a small thickness iPhone be able to survive the same reputation that iPhone 6 earned, #Bendgate. That remains to be seen, however, having a slimmer phone does sound better. Who doesn’t prefer a sleek phone?
3. Wireless Charging
According to sources, Apple is currently trying out a number of types of iPhone 7 models out of which one sports wireless charging. Imagine, not having to worry if you’re phone’s cord is connected or not. Times of the cords are almost over; make way for wireless charging! Yes, it was impossible before due to the iPhone’s aluminum body, however, Qualcomm has created a wireless charger that can work with this metal as well.
2. Wraparound Screen
Apple applied for a patent for ‘sidewall displays’ on 29th September and we just might be seeing it tried out on iPhone 7. According to sources, a phone’s image that accompanies the filing of patent features an iPhone that had its screen stretched all the way around the device.
1. No Home Button
Right now in Cupertino, California; inside Apple’s HQ, there are a total of five potential iPhone 7 models that are being worked upon. One of these models doesn’t feature a ‘home’ button and works via built-in fingerprint recognition on the screen. Ah yes, technology is advancing!
