As someone that admits to sitting on their phone in the bath (it’s where I take on my most serious shopping!) or that may or may not have been spotted listening to Spotify from their shower caddy secured handset, learning the fact that the new handset is water resistant was an instant ‘I need it moment’.
No HeadPhone Jack
To get us to the ultimate goal of a water resistant iPhone changes had to be made and one of them was losing the headphone jack. Yes, it might be like the time they changed the charging port and everyone’s accessories were made redundant, but honestly, who doesn’t need to upgrade their headphones by now anyway?
You can either opt for the new style that connects to the handset via the Lightning, charging port or go wireless with Apple’s new infrared connecting AirPods for fuss-free listening. Simply connect them to your phone once and then they will automagically connect to any device logged into your iCloud account.
Changed Home Button
Say goodbye to that clicky home button. The new iPhone’s centralised button is now made from the same technology as your Macbook’s trackpad, so it won’t actually click, this is another improvement to increase its water and dust resistance.
Perfect for those Pokemon Go-ers the iPhone 7 boasts 2 hours more in terms of battery life.
The new iPhones offer upgraded image stabilisation and an even faster shutter. The larger iPhone 7 Plus model will also be sporting a new dual-lens camera, with a wide angle and telescopic lens that allows you to zoom up to 10x.
Love the look you get from your SLR? The iPhone 7 is getting closer to recreating it with the iPhone 7 Plus offering a portrait mode that uses the two lens to create depth of field.
The new iPhone 7 will come in one new colour, Jet Black, a glossy true black to compliment it’s Space Grey fans. Don’t worry, jet gold, silver and rose gold are still available!
The new iPhone comes with an A10 processing chip making that bad boy faster too!
