Many are expecting Apple to release a relatively boring iPhone 7, in order for the company to save its better ideas for the 10-year anniversary iPhone. However, there actually is plenty to be excited about with the upcoming release.
Plenty of the negativity is coming from the iPhone 7's design - in that it is very similar to the current iPhone 6S series. While this is true, there is no denying that Apple's design has not worked before. Even from the inception of the iconic handheld, the design has relatively been changed minimally.
As The Next Web describes it, there are obviously not a lot of design innovations, but the finishes do make the iPhone 7 a more pleasing unit. Even with the slow design changes, BGR claims that the iPhone 7 will have a thinner body, more attractive antenna lines and at least one new color option.
Furthermore, it will be more powerful as Apple is releasing a new processor. It will also come with a dual camera for either the iPhone Pro/Plus. However, the standard will still get an upgrade to a 12-megapixel rear camera.
The iPhone 7 series is also expected to come with a new 3D Touch home button with haptic feedback and a screen higher resolution. In addition, Apple will be letting go of its lowest storage option and will only offer 32 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB options.
Looking at all these changes and improvements, it can be said with certainty that the iPhone 7 series will not be a boring one from the Cupertino-based company. The hardware itself may not be multiple steps out of Apple's current comfort zone, but there are definite and notable enhancements that will be made to its specs.
The iPhone 7 is expected to be launched on September 7, during Apple's annual press conference.
