iPhone 7 Features Improved Technology

Nearly a month ago, Apple finally released the highly anticipated iPhone 7, and it is not hard to believe that they have already sold out on some of their models. According to a CNBC site, Apple stated that they knew the new iPhones would sell out during pre order, and with these new  features it’s not hard to see why.

Just like the previous phone (iPhone 6S), there are two sizes(7 and 7 Plus) as well as five different finishes including two different styles of black: original matte and glossy jet black, a brand new style that has been precisely crafted and, according to the site, has undergone an intense nine-step process of anodization and polishing resulting in a sleek Jet Black finish unlike anything the iPhones have had before. This new phone also has a whole new take on the home button, which isn’t really a button at all but merely a pressure sensitive pad that vibrates in response to pressure. The new 7 also claims to be water resistant, though many people are still skeptical about this feature, Apple has stated that the phone can be submerged in up to 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes before sustaining any severe damage. Though this doesn’t mean that you should take your new phone swimming with you, it suggests that it would be able to withstand a few splashes here and there with no damage at all.

The most notable change to the new iPhone 7, aside from the lack of a headphone jack and faster processing technology, are its cameras. Both the 7 and 7 Plus have drastically improved photo quality as well as new camera features on the 7 Plus. The new iPhone 7 Plus has a dual camera system in the back which uses the same camera as the regular 7, yet the Plus also uses another 56mm-telephoto lense that utilizes a built in zoom feature so you can get the best quality out of your photos.

With all of this new technology, you can see why the demand for this new iPhone is so high. Though around the world Apple has sold out on its initial stock of Jet Black and 7 Plus models, you can still place orders for your desired model online.
