Apple, the Cupertino-based company releases only one or two phones every year. Still, the phone sells in millions and that has a reason – Apple comes up with a very beautiful, powerful and clutter-free phone that doesn’t run Android unlike most of the others in the market. Apple iPhone has been one of the top selling phones every year, though Apple does not get a big market share because they have a limited number of phones selling.
Were we looking forward to the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus? They were expected to do good with the specs as well as with some change in design, but Apple had disappointed with that aspect, and actual users were looking for much more than this. That is the reason why we are already seeing people wait for the next best iPhone that has a lot more than just the upgrade in processor.
Piper Jaffray’s Gene Munster told clients ‘we expect the iPhone 7 to sport a unique design from the iPhone 6/6S’. He believes it will do away with the home button, instead relying on the 3D Touch screen introduced in the 6S.
‘As many have speculated, the addition of 3D Touch may provide Apple with a way to eliminate the home button on the phone and use the additional space to make the screen bigger or make the device smaller,’ he said, according to Barrons.
There are several concept images already designed and published, giving a peak at what should the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus look like, but some of the flaws in there made us feel that these concepts of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus won’t be anywhere close to the real ones. Read below for what is rumoured about the iPhone 7.
iPhone 7 Processor
After the debacle that happened with the Apple’s A9 chipset, we expect to see Apple doing something commendable and good with the iPhone 7, i.e. with the A10 chipset. The A9 was made by TSMC and Samsung, and users were not aware of that initially, and it was selective devices having A9 made by Samsung, and selective having the A9 from TSMC.
In the end, performance didn’t change much but still that kept the users disinterested in choosing the iPhone 6s, thinking that the performance might take a hit unknowingly. That was false concept in the end, but users are putting in a lot of money to purchase the iPhone, so they had to rather wait for a year for an iPhone upgrade.
It is being said that Apple is looking to use Intel’s processor in the iPhone 7, while this is still a rumour but won’t be a bad thing because Apple has a specific OS that is not used by other manufacturers, and they know how Intel’s chipsets might also work well.
iPhone 7 Variants based on Size
Earlier, Apple was fixed at 4-inch screen size for years because the company felt that having large screen phones in the hand is bad. Later, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus came with 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen sizes, and Apple has now maintained that as a standard size. But next year Apple is said to be looking at three variants in total.
The standard ones will be maintained the same – 4.7-inch for iPhone 7, 5.5-inch for the iPhone 7s, and there might be a new variant with 4 or 4.3-inch size and it could be the more affordable variant just like the iPhone 5c was launched. We might see it named as the iPhone 6c or the iPhone 7c, but it depends on what is being included in the phone.
iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus Release Date
Apple has a regular time for the announcement and release of the iPhones every year. It is around September when the iPhone gets announced, and so the iPhone 7 will be announced around September 2016 and the release date of iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will be set at around September or October 2016. The rollout might be the same, with around 11 markets in the first round and 40 other countries few weeks later.
Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus Pricing
The iPhone pricing is always the same, when taken on-contract. Whenever a new iPhone is launched, the price of previous version goes down by $100, and thus the new one comes with a price of $199 with the 2-year contract, and so will be the price of iPhone 7. But at the same time, the bigger variant, i.e. the iPhone 7 Plus will be priced at $299 with a 2-year contract.
