Analyst are expecting that fewer people will buy smartphones in 2016 but if it goes Apple’s way, that might change. According to a new report published by Fast Company, Apple is expected to give the iPhone a major upgrade this year. The iPhone 7 is going to pack some pretty neat features.
The details that were published today as the ones we have been hearing for quite sometime now. Apple’s next iPhone – the iPhone 7 is expected to be slimmer than ever before. Apple is doing this by removing the 3.5mm headphone jack and will instead feature lightning cable port for sound. This way Apple is going to introduce two headphones. One are the EarPods that will use the lightning port and the other one is the wireless headphones which will feature noise-cancelling tech but it will be more expensive than the normal ones.
The other feature which we haven’t heard much in the past is the wireless charging. It seems that the iPhone 7 will be the first iOS device to feature wireless charging. Although this tech is not new, even for Apple, which uses inductive wireless charging for the Apple Watch, it will be a first for an iPhone. Samsung currently touts Apple for not featuring the wireless tech in its smartphone in ads.
The other feature which we have been hearing for quite sometime is that the next iPhone will be waterproof. This isn’t new and the current iPhones are to some extent waterproof. Apple only needs to add a special layer of coating that will make the iPhone 7 waterproof.
Well, these are some of the features that the iPhone 7 is going to have and they look pretty interesting.
