Despite the onslaught of negative commentary on the iPhone 7 because of Apple's supposed lack of innovation, the company did take plenty of risks in releasing its new line of flagship devices. The changes that the company has made and the alternatives it has provided the smartphone industry are not to be taken lightly and with humor. There are, however, repercussions to be made, as the general public takes its time in getting used to the changes.

What's In Store For iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus Users

There are plenty of things to get used to with the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The most popular of which is the lack of a 3.5mm audio jack, in preference for a Lightning audio cable. But according to Forbes, the move was imminent anyway.

With smartphones, there is hardly any room for design changes, so a lack in ports are the only leeway in which to make changes. Eventually, others will follow suit and make the necessary changes to accommodate the Lightning audio.

It is the same way with the virtual home button - the lack of such is a change that the smartphone can take. Theoretically it also lowers the amount of possible repairs. After all, the home button is one of the iPhone features that are more commonly broken.

Apple's History With Breaking Tradition

As Apple Insider notes, this is not the first time that the Cupertino-based company is receiving some backlash from its innovations. Back in 2011, along with the release of macOS X Lion, came a change in scrolling. That is, pulling the scrollbar down made the document move downwards, as opposed to the initial opposite reaction.

When this was first introduced, the general public fought against the changes. And yet, plenty might even have difficulty remembering the time when a downwards scroll resulted in an upwards motion. It is likely that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will obtain the same story.
