Rumored Changes for the iPhone 7

by Advance Financial | August 30th, 2016

Iphone

Rumor has it there are some significant changes coming to the newest version of Apple’s famous iPhone. Apple is notorious for having their newest iPhone edition launch in the month of September, yet they always keep the actual date under wraps up until days before. As with every launch, there is major buzz around what enhancements and new features will be added. With the iPhone 5, users were introduced to Siri. A year later iPhone 6 came out with HDR video and picture quality. So what is the buzz around the 7? Keep reading to find out all the rumored changes that will come with the iPhone 7.

 Headphone_iPhone

See you later regular headphones, wireless headphones are taking over. In an attempt to remove wired accessories and move in the direction of wireless, it’s been said that Apple is removing the headphone port at the bottom of the phone. This is to aid in making the phone even slimmer than it already is. Don’t freak out just yet, there are already multiple companies creating adapters to enable regular headphones with a cord to be plugged into the charging port. But again, that’s just rumored.

Paint-It-black_IPhone

What is one of the most popular colors for electronic products that seems to be missing from the iPhone color palette? Black of course, but not once the 7 comes out. According to www.macrumors.com, Apple will be replacing the space gray color with glossy black. This will now give buyers the color choices of gold, rose gold, silver, white, and the new glossy black.

 

PoweredUp_Iphone

The new iPhone 7 will feature a16nm Apple A10 processor and 2GB or 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM depending on the model. And all that tech talk translates into an upgraded camera that will include a new dual-lens setup on the iPhone as well as a bigger battery that will stay charged longer.

Water_IPHONE

The dreaded fear of getting water damage or dust inside one’s phone causes many users to purchase a bulky case to protect the phone. It has been rumored that Apple has made some major changes to the build of the phone that will make the 7 dust resistant as well as completely water proof or more water resistant than previous versions.

So there you have it. All the rumors that have came out regarding the changes that will come with the iPhone 7. On September 7th Apple will be having a special press event where it is expected they will unveil the 7th edition to the iPhone family and put the rumors to rest on all the changes.
