iPhone 7 Release Date 2016 USA Specification and Design With New Features:
iPhone 7 Release date:
We don’t expect to see the iPhone 7s until the fall of 2016, so it’s quite a ways off. Apple just released their 2015 models, the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus. Apple has used an alternating “S” naming formula to mark years where the iPhone does not receive a major redesign since the debut of the iPhone 3GS in 2009.
Releases have been as follows:
- 2007 – iPhone
- 2008 – iPhone 3G
- 2009 – iPhone 3GS
- 2010 – iPhone 4 (new design)
- 2011 – iPhone 4s
- 2012 – iPhone 5 (new design)
- 2013 – iPhone 5s
- 2014 – iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus (new design)
- 2015 – iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus
The next-generation iPhone is expected to be called the iPhone 7. 2015 marked an “Plus” iPhone upgrade year that introduced new features such as an improved camera and a better processor, but 2016 will bring an even-year upgrade that will likely include an all-new iPhone design.
Some Features Of iPhone 7
We are too far away from the iPhone 7 launch to know what the new device will look like, but we can speculate that Apple will continue on its path of introducing more powerful, efficient devices that grow thinner with each design iteration. The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are expected to include next-generation A10 processors.
It’s likely Apple will continue releasing two versions of each iPhone, so we may see an iPhone 7 and an iPhone 7 Plus in 2016. Apple may stick to 4.7- and 5.5-inches, or take the opportunity to further refine screen sizes, shifting the dimensions somewhat to match the company’s design vision for the updated phones.
The continued use of in-cell panels for the iPhone 7 will allow Apple to make the device even thinner, approaching the thinness of the iPod touch at a point between 6.0mm and 6.5mm. Apple’s current iPod touch measures in at 6.1mm, compared to 6.9mm for the iPhone 6 and 7.1mm for the iPhone 6 Plus. Like the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus, the iPhone 7 will also use 3D Touch technology.
Early rumors about the iPhone 7 suggest the next-generation device will have a strengthened, waterproof frame that ditches Apple’s traditional aluminum casing for an all new material. The new body will withstand both dust and water, making it better able to hold up when exposed to the elements.
16GB will surely be phased out as the lowest storage offering. It’s nowhere near enough in this day and age. We hope and expect the iPhone 7 to start at 32GB, with 64GB and 128GB options.
The iPhone 7 could be the first iPhone to feature Intel processors, according to reports claiming that Intel has a 1,000-strong team working to ensure that the 7360 LTE modem chip makes its way into the iPhone 7, ousting the Qualcomm 9X45 LTE chip used in the iPhone 6S.
iPhone 7 Vs iPhone 7 Plus Review: Should You Upgrade?
Apple finally playing ball with customers who still love the smaller 5-inch form factor will be big news, but it is equally newsworthy that the company finally looks set to admit the ‘PLUS’ range is more than just a size increase on the standard iPhone. Apple has already been hinting at this for two generations by selling the standard model with an inferior screen, optics and far worse battery life.
