All that is known about the iPhone 7 during the three months before the official presentation

Barring something unexpected, this fall Apple will reveal the new smartphone iPhone 7. Rumors about his appearance and the filling is circulating all the time, they are more and they all read more. Further on what is already known about the new product three months before release.

Design

Judging from the CAD drawings of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will change the stripe design, which will gently encircle the casing, and the thickness of the iPhone 7 will be 0.1 mm larger than the iPhone 6s. The rest of the dimensions of the smartphone will be exactly identical to the predecessors. For iPhone 7 they will amount to 138.3 x 67,1 x 7.2 mm, and the iPhone 7 Plus — 158,2 x 77,9 x 7.3 mm. the Specified thickness does not include projection of the camera, which was unable to remove neither the one nor the other.

That in iPhone 7 Apple will refuse to use the headphone Jack say increasingly, despite some contradictory statements from individual sources. While it is not clear whether the company to compensate for the lack of a new interface connector Smart Connector that provides bi-directional data transfer. In theory, the connector will allow to connect to the smartphone keyboard, and other accessories.

Some sources believe that Apple is still testing three different design of the iPhone 7, unable to make a final choice. The device is credited with an even more protruding camera on the back and stereo speakers.

Key innovations

The camera will be much better. Of course, Apple improves the quality of shooting their smartphones every year, but the iPhone 7 it will be on a new level. Camera 4.7-inch iPhone 7 will get a larger lens and optical image stabilization. In the older and expensive model of the iPhone 7 Plus is a dual camera. The 5.5-inch model will also get 3 GB of RAM and — perhaps — a variant with 256 GB of free space.

User interest in iPhone 7 Plus will largely justified by the model with 256 GB of free space. But if we understand the pricing of Apple in Russia it will cost about 92 000 rubles, or to 9 000 rubles more options for 128 GB.

Likely, Apple will pay special attention to the operation time in Autonomous mode. In recent years, the company managed to increase the operation time of the MacBook twice. Used laptops worked without recharging for 5 hours, but the new models are “live” all 10. This effect is achieved largely thanks to more energy efficient processors and less greedy software. Probably this success, Apple will try to repeat with the iPhone 7 thanks to the new generation chip the Apple A10 and a more capacious battery.

One of the most interesting insider says that the iPhone 7 will be waterproof. It should be noted that the iPhone 6 although not stated as waterproof, yet can withstand short-term immersion. The video even managed to leave the smartphone in water for an hour, and after that it worked as if nothing had happened. This was the first reason for the rumors about the “official” water resistance next smartphone.

Accessories

While the gray area — what accessories Apple will unveil iPhone 7 this fall. If the 3.5 mm Jack will leave the new device, almost certainly the company will offer some kind of wireless solution and even put it in a box with new smartphones. Or she can come up with headphones with a standard Lightning connector.

One thing is almost certain — the old headphones need to be replaced. Therefore if you are thinking about buying a new good “ears” for the iPhone this summer and plan to buy the iPhone 7 as soon as it comes out — it is necessary to wait. The purchase may be in vain.

Release date

The official announcement of the next-generation iPhone is expected in the first half of September 2016. According to media reports, this year Apple is going to release 72-28 million iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which will be a record in terms of order over the past two years.

On the other hand sales may hit and the technical complexity of some of the elements of the device. In particular, some reports say that Sony, which would presumably be to do a dual camera for the iPhone 7, will not cope with the demand and Apple will have to “dokopatsya” LG.

This means two things. First, the market will be smart phones with different cameras and one of them will definitely be better than the other. Secondly, if Apple’s suppliers will not be able to cope, secondary markets will receive the new model later than usual.
