Despite happily purchasing our iPhone 6/6 plus/6S and enjoying the new features, we now face the possibility that our devices will be overshadowed in the summer of 2016 by the far superior iPhone 7. Item Shark has outlined what we know so far and what we might expect to see from Apple's new model.
1. Is there a launch date?
Apple have precedence for sticking to a development schedule and there is no reason to assume that this launch would be any different. That being said the launch of the iPhone 7 is expected towards the end of Summer 2016.
2. Will there be a new design?
Rumour has it that Apple are going to completely redesign the handset to accommodate the new technology. The handset is expected to be much thinner than we have seen from Apple in recent years and will expand on the pressure touch technology seen in the iPhone 6S.
3. What are the best rumours so far?
We at Item Shark have two personal favourites so far - that it will be waterproof and that it will have wireless charging. There has been rumours of waterproof phones before when Apple were found to have lodge a patent for Plasma-Assisted Chemical Vapour Deposition (PACVD) a technique which would coat the internal components and make the waterproof. Wireless charging seems like an obvious progressions since Samsung consider this a key selling message of their product.
Let us know what you think about the iPhone 7 and what you would hope to see from this latest upgrade.
