Apple iPhone 7 release date and 7 Plus release will come in late 2016.
The iPhone 7 release will come in September 2016, and the rumours are showing that the handset will come with edge-to-edge display, no headphone jack, a waterproof body etc. Read on to find out what to expect with Apple’s seventh generation headset. We have searched up the articles on internet showing up all iPhone 7 rumours and collected the information and sum up the whole to provide you the complete information.
When is the the iPhone 7 release in market
With the release of iPhone 6s and 6s Plus unveiled in September 2015, and the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in September 2014, people might think iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will come in September 2016.
But the different reports on the internet say that Apple might struggle to meet demand for the iPhone 7 due to damage caused by an earthquake in Taiwain to Apple supplier TSMC’s factories. In early February, reports emerged to suggest that Apple would use TSMC as its sole processor manufacturer, but the earthquake came just days later.
But the reports says that damage caused by the earthquake to the Apple supplier factories might made the Apple to struggle for the manufacture and meet the demands of its customers. Few days back the reports suggested that Apple would use Taiwan plant to manufacture processor but earthquake hit the plant after few days of it.
iPhone 7 price
Apple has kept the same costings for its past two iPhone releases. It means that the iPhone 7 will cost approximate £539 for 16GB , £619 for 64GB, and £699 for the 128GB. Another rumour is that, there may be a 256GB model of iPhone 7, although it may not be possible. If it is available its expected to be in the price range of £800.
iPhone 7 design & specifications
The iPhone 6, 6s, 6 Plus and 6s Plus looked largely similar to each other. So here are some expectations to see completely different design for the iPhone 7, however its likely that it too will come in same previous colors.
The recent design rumours emerging that the iPhone 7 could have a ceramic back. This might be done to make wireless charging easier but it could also make the iPhone 7 look pretty different. This rumour have no real evidence to support the claim as it was posted by a Korean website.
Some reports also emerged in claiming that the iPhone 7’s will be moved to the middle of the phone rather than in corner as it is in current handsets.
This rumour is according to MacRumors, which claims to be a reliable source who says that the antenna stripes on the back will be removed.
Apple already decided that some of the specifications will not change for years. Such specs. Are:
The 12Mp iSight camera, up from 8Mp in the 6 and 6 Plus. It’s likely that Apple will stick with that 12Mp camera for some time to come, although it still refuses to improve is the screen resolution. We hope that Apple might improve its pixel count in the iPhone 7. Apple might stick with the 4.7in and 5.5in screen sizes, however it could well move to 5- and 5.7in models and will look to increasing the screen-to-body ratio.
We expect the high performance upgrades, the iPhone 7 will come with Apple’s latest A10 processor and embedded M10 motion co-processor. The iPhone 6s series were the first Apple handsets to get 2GB of RAM, and expect this to go up in the iPhone 7. The iPhone 7 will come with iOS 10 and expect it to disclosed in mid of 2016.
iPhone 7 release with different headphone jack & lightening port
Apple introduced new style of power connector with its iPhone 5 model. It is rumoured that apple will move some things around by changing lightening port and with a completely different type of headphone jack which will be much slimmer than the previous one; it is said to be a new technology called D jack.
Some rumour claiming that Apple is thinking to exclude the headphone jack to make handset more slim. However removing headphone jack don’t seem to be possible. But the question arises that how will we listen the music? And it will leave us with two options – either use wireless Bluetooth headphones or use headphones that connectes to the headset via lightening port. This gives rise to the possibility that Apple will introduce some kind of adaptor that’ll allow its customers to use their headphones. Consumers are flocking to sign an online petition in the hopes that they can stop Apple from excluding the headphone jack. So far there are more than 280,000 signatures in the petition.
iPhone 7 with lightning ear pods or wireless air pods
If Apple does decide to remove the headphone jack then it’s going put some new Ear Pods, and the current rumours are suggesting some new Ear Pods which will be compatible with lightening port and some other rumours claiming that Apple is developing some new kind of Air Pods which are completely wireless even without connecting wire between two buds.
iPhone 7 with waterproof protection
It’s possible to expect the new iPhone 7 release could be waterproof. Last year reports revealed that Apple is researching make future iPhones waterproof without making any compromises in design. Apple is also planning to put an armour/cover to the outside of the handset body to protect it from water by coating its electronic components in a protective waterproof material.
iPhone 7 to dry itself by pumping pout water out
A new patent was published last year which suggests that the iPhone 7 could be completely waterproof by the action of drying itself by pumping out liquid of the device via its speaker grills. The expected action is that when liquid is detected in the speakers the modules would be activated in such a way that it’d move the liquid outwards.
iPhone 7 with wireless charging
New reports emerging that Apple behind the scenes is working on wireless charging, It’s been rumoured that wireless charging is coming to Apple handsets a long ago, but the 6s arrived with no such feature which disappointed many people. Qualcomm disclosed that latest wireless charging technique now does work through metal, so it’s here finally. But Apple wants to take wireless charging one step ahead by making such technologiges that the handset can be charged if it is placed away from the charging mat.
iPhone 7 will come with an e-SIM
Another rumour arising that the iPhone 7 release will come with e-SIM. e-SIM is an electronic SIM that will replace ordinary SIM cards and it has some benefits of swapping carriers easily with the ease of flexible roaming. Rumours suggest that Apple and Samsung is in talk with the GSMA to make e-SIM a standard in future handsets. This idea is good for roaming too, as it will be much easier to switch to a local network if you’re going to spend a long time in a specific country.
iPhone 7 with a glasses-free 3D display
The iPhone 7 release could feature a 3D display – but it will not just any 3D display but a 3D display that doesn’t require any special glasses. A website claims that Apple is working in partnership on a project to produce a glasses free 3D display, though we’re not expecting much hope for this bacuse Apple has already introduced 3D display in 6S series.
iPhone 7 with sidewall display like Samsung handsets
There are some rumours that the iPhone 7 release will come with new design features, though we’d take these rumours a little. It shows that what Apple will include an sidewall display to its iPhone 7.The rumour hints that sidewall display will give access to unlock functionality, music controls, message read and more.
iPhone 7 release with edge to edge display
The latest rumour comes from a concept video uploaded on a website which shows Apple’s edge to edge it looks vary cool and something completely different concept.
Images are also emerging on internet regarding edge-to-edge display. It’s is bit unlikely to be quite accurate, but it shows what iOS 10 might include an interesting idea that some change in icons in a widget’ style familiar to Android OS.
iPhone 7 with a Touch ID display
Another rumour that was sparked by an Apple patent is that the iPhone 7’s Touch ID fingerprint sensor, It said thet the Touch ID fingerprint sensor could be built-in to the entire display, eliminating the need for a home button and making large sized display without extending the size of handset.
These rumours seemed not be done in recent upgrades but it might just happen. Sonavation recently announced that Apple to put some high class ultrasonic biometric sensors underneath a Gorilla Glass display to make screen able to read a users fingerprints.
iPhone 7 release with flexible OLED display made by Samsung
All of the above rumours could be made possible thanks to a new flexible OLED, that reports say Samsung display deparment is currently working on the OLED display for the iPhone 7 and is going to invest billions in a new plants to keep up the the manufacturing and meet Apple’s order of up to 45,000 sets per month.
