iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus Features, News And Updates: Waterproof, New Jet Black Color, Wireless Headphones! What Sets It Apart From Predecessors?

Apple has finally officially released the iPhone 7 and people are already caught up in the hype attached to it.  But what's really special about the iPhone 7, aside from its wireless headphones?  Social media sites have been having mixed reactions about iPhone 7's wireless headphones.  Some individuals are excited to try the wireless headphone feature of iPhone 7 while some are silently snickering thinking how easy it would be to lose the said wireless headphones.

Let's look at the bigger picture first - despite of Apple still being one of the tech giants in the market, its sales are still declining.  Therefore, iPhone 7 will be the company's chance to increase their sales before 2016 ends.  Apple tried a different way to attract consumers to purchase iPhone 7 and focused on what the new gadget didn't have compared with previous units - a headphone jack. In connection with that, Apple will be selling their very own wireless headphones for the iPhone 7, a clear attempt to boost sales further.

Apple also tries to compete with other waterproof smartphone brands in the market by presenting the iPhone 7 as a waterproof phone. Perhaps, the lack of headset jack for iPhone 7 was needed for it to be waterproof?  

Just like iPhone 6 series that came out with 6 Plus models, the iPhone 7 will also have an iPhone 7 Plus.  The most obvious difference from iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is that the Plus handsets are equipped with dual lens camera, enabling production of photos that are professional grade.

Design-wise, there's not really something drastically new with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.  As mentioned earlier, the only new physical attribute of the iPhone 7 models is the missing headphone jock.  One thing to note, however, is Apple reportedly focused less on the physical changes and focused more on tweaking the software and hardware to enhance performance of the gadgets.  Apple iPhone 7 price ranges from $649 to $849 depending on the memory storage.
