Apple iPhone 7 May be Released This Year Instead of Next Year, More Details!
The Apple iPhone 7 rumors are starting to head in full swing. This is because there are numerous rumors pointing to Apple actually skipping their usual incremental upgrade the year after they release a new iPhone. With the past few iPhones, Apple has done smaller upgrades, but there is a lot of evidence that’s pointing to Apple having enough new technology to skip the Apple iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, and skip straight to the Apple iPhone 7.
This is somewhat interesting because the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are great sellers for Apple as it is. However, there are a few pieces of new technology that Apple has that people are expecting to see in the Apple iPhone 7. The most talked about is a new and improved camera. Although the iPhone cameras tend to have less megapixels than their Android counterparts, in most reviews, the iPhone camera still comes out on top. However, Apple is trying to increase that gap with their recent acquire of LinX, a camera-based technology company.
LinX works on cameras that are extremely small, and have DSLR-like performance. Although smartphone cameras are mostly good enough for the general consumer, they still pale in comparison to the DSLR cameras professionals use. It’s not uncommon to see someone who is into photography carry around a smaller DSLR camera around with them in addition to their iPhone. One issue with the iPhone 6 camera is that the lens actually protruded from the back of the phone. LinX’s current cameras are smaller than any other on the market, and can capture 2D images as well as accurate depth information.
Having better cameras alone would be reason enough for Apple to consider making the jump from the iPhone 6 to the iPhone 7 this year. There are also rumors that the sapphire display will finally make its way to the Apple iPhone 7.
There are also rumors of the casing used for the Apple Watch to be used in the new phone, as well as the force touch gestures that are used in both the latest Apple Watch and the newest MacBook Air. All of these changes combined are good enough for Apple to skip the iPhone 6S update and head straight to the iPhone 7 update in September of this year.
