The recent launch of the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S plus has been well received by the users around the world.
Although there was not too much that the phone offered in terms of exterior design, users were treated to a brand new OS and some interesting additions to the feature of the new iPhone 2015.
Apart from 3D touch technology and a faster processor, there has been a big change in the terms of camera, where the 8MP barrier has been broken and a powerful 12MP device has taken its place.
Users would have taken Apple seriously to task had these features not been introduced, as the iPhones are complete replicas of the 2014 predecessors.
Apple cannot make this error again and the new iPhone has to have something new in terms of looks when it is released next year. Just like every year, this time the users have already started speculating of what the new iPhone should be like.
About 10 more months lie ahead of us before we can lay our hands on the upcoming iPhones.
These are expected to be finally termed as the iPhone 7, as we don’t really think that the iPhone 6C will materialize.
We came up with discussions of purported features for the iPhone 7, but the latest discussions have come up with something rather interesting – the removal of the home button from the device.
This sounds a bit out of the league by there are some of us who had been expecting this change. 50% of the experts around the globe and the serious tech bloggers have claimed that the home button will be gone from the phone, but have not really come up with a good reason why they think this way.
3D touch has been doing a very good job all these days. Now that this technology is in place, we can expect that the home button can be done away with, resulting to a larger screen, thinner bezels and better looks. Touch ID can very well be moved to the side of the device.
Rumors suggest that a patent application has been filed by the device already, further affirming that this might indeed be the truth.
Not much can be said about the battery capacity, but even if the physical power unit is not made more powerful, we can at least bank on the very Os itself to have better power management, as a result of which the device will consume less power.
A higher screen resolution and a sapphire glass screen protection have also been contemplated. Equal votes have gone to the use of Corning’s new Project Phire.
Storage could be bumped up, with complete eviction of the 32GB model and more stress on higher storage capacities.
There is hardly any possibility of seeing the USB C port in the iPhone7, as users have just started getting used to the idea of using a lightning pin after the use of the 30 pin was dropped.
