Apple recently launched the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in September, just as they have done in the past years. The new iPhone seeks to take away over $650 from you. But the money is not the only thing you will be saying goodbye to – there is no more 3.5mm headphone jack and thus bringing us into an era of wireless headphones. Is this the new future or the introduction of a near-term dongle nightmare?
Whereas it appears that there are some people yet to agree with the removal of the audio port, demand for the iPhone is likely to skyrocket. That implies that you will likely be awake for hours as you struggle to make a preorder. Preorders for the new iPhone series begin on 9th September at 3AM ET. You will be able to purchase both iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus from Apple’s website and many other carriers.
Lets for once put aside all the controversial removals and focus on the surprising refresh that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus brings to the market.
The iPhone 7 Plus camera comes with a powerful dual lens with superior zoom and portrait mode. Don’t worry; you can now receive your calls in the rain without any worries. The phones have been made water resistant.
Of course there is no question Apple’s processor gets an upgraded each year. The new A10 Fusion chip is said to be 40 percent faster than last year’s processor, with 50 percent more graphics performance. The batteries of both iPhones have also been upgraded. The iPhone 7 Plus will now last 1 hour longer than the 6S Plus while iPhone 7 has an extended duration of two hours.
Same Pricing scheme
Apple has not changed its pricing scheme for purchasing the two models but customers now benefit from increased storage. One thing the company has done is to kill off the 16GB model that many loved to hate. This leaves us with 32GB, 128GB and 256GB models.
For the iPhone 7, the 128GB model goes for $749 whereas the 256GB is eye-popping considering its $769 price. The 32GB will be sold at $649.
For the iPhone 7 Plus, the 32GB model costs $769, while the 128GB model costs $869. The largest iPhone 7 Plus, with 256GB of storage, will run you $969. These are all contract-free prices.
Available purchasing options
Apple has introduced the iPhone Upgrade Program that will charge a monthly fee for duration of 24 months and has Apple Care+ that repairs your broken screen at only $29 instead of $99. The best thing about this loan is that you can trade your iPhone after you have made 12 payments and get a new one that will renew the 24-month cycle. For the cheapest iPhone 7, the program will charge you $32.41 monthly.
