Once again Apple has maintained the trend of releasing two smartphones in its iPhone series. The multibillion firm launched iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus this fall. iPhone 7 comes in 4.7-inches while iPhone 7 Plus is 5.5 inches. There is an additional two hot colors – mate Black and Jet Black.
Unboxing iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus
As usual, the box has AC adapters, Paper work guidelines, Lightning cable, and your preferred smartphone. But this year there is an additional Lighting EarPods and a 3.5mm to Lightning adapter.
But none of that will be of any significance the moment you hold the iPhones in your hand. It will singularly take over your emotions as you become eager to exploit the latest technology in the smartphone world.
Some will go about complaining that the shape is still the same – they know not until they have opened the inside. iPhone can now be categorized like the Rolex, Leica or Porsche. iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is iconic.
The firm has now made a significant step in the Apple Platonic ideal.
iPhone 7 missing headphone jack
The very first thing you will be sure to notice the moment you unbox iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 is the missing headphone jack. For all those addicted to using the 3.5mm headphones, this is a major disappointment.
But we guess Apple has always wanted to delete this headphone jack for quite a long time now. The feature occupies so much space while providing a service that can easily be obtained in a different way – the Lighting port.
Apple says that after removing, they have managed to add optical image stabilization to both iPhones as well as a second lens to the iPhone 7 Plus. The other advantage is that it has now become possible to increase the size of the iPhone battery. From the past, every time Apple has wanted to do away with an outdated feature, the company has complimented by adding a modern invention.
To make up for this missing headphone jack, the firm includes in your box the Lightening EarPods and a 3.5mm to Lightning adapter. You will still be able to listen to your music using either the wireless way or the Lighting Port.
You will be surprised by how you may fail to notice this difference. Simply pull out the default EarPods and start grooving like have you always done. The wireless AirPods are equally fantastic. The only downside is that they are quite pricey. It would have been great to bundle them in the box.
Charge and listen at the same time
It is great to charge, listen and play a game on your iPhone at the same time. Apple’s Lightning port does not allow you to do this but a number of accessories are either in the market or soon will be available to help you out.
Apple is credited for always taking bold steps in eliminating “worn out” technologies. This is a huge step they have taken to do away with the headphone jack and in a couple of years you will start to consider the analog technology seldom – just like we do with many others.
iPhone 7 Speakers
Many customers have always wished that iPhone brings better speakers. For a company whose modern fortunes were founded on music, the iPhone speakers weren’t that appealing. But that’s a gone narrative. They iPhone 7 speakers are now stereo! That means louder and clear audio.
Rather than placing two speakers on the bottom, Apple has not only amped up the existing speaker on the bottom, but also turned the earpiece on the top into a full-on companion. That ensures greater separation, and hence the potential for real stereo sound.
They have borrowed the iPad Pro feature of switching channels through device rotation. With that, left will remain to be left no matter which side the home button is. The most surprising thing though is how Apple was able to get such rich deep sound from tiny speakers.
iPhone 7 Cameras
I bet your expectation is that iPhone 7 camera is better than that of iPhone 6S. Well, you are slightly wrong because the news cameras are more than just better, they are fascinating!
What’s more, the iPhone 7 Plus has dual lens that perfectly achieves zooming without blurred images.
Both iPhone 7 models have optical image stabilization (OIS) for their 12MP camera. The implication is that shutters will stay open for long in low lighting conditions to produce better videos and photos. You can now take better photos even in the night.
