Apple has finally revealed thorough information about the much awaited iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The two phones are just like their predecessor but wherever there are changes, Apple made sure they were worth it. It also expected that the iPhone 7 will have certain measure that will make it hard to hack.
Jony Ive presented a video that thrp
As is tradition, Jony Ive delivered a wonderfully psychotic video to introduce the new iPhone, focusing on the new gloss finish and the redesigned camera housing.
Apple’s Phil Schiller then ran down all the changes live on stage.
And a much needed feature is also here—the iPhone is now toilet proof. Apple says its re-engineered the casing so that the phone can survive most H20 plunges. And many accident-prone people rejoiced.
Apple focused heavily on remaking the two camera systems in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Each phone now comes with optical image stabilization and an f/1.8 aperture lens for muuuuch better low-light photography (hopefully).
Apple also reworked the flash to make it brighter and able to capture truer tones and its image processor for better editing.
Finally, Schiller gets to the much-anticipated dual cameras on the iPhone 7 Plus.
It turns out one is a normal lens and the other a telephoto lens. Schiller explains that this new camera system can build a zoom feature into the iPhone. When in the camera app, a new button can zoom 2x instantly with just a tap.
After 2x, however, further zoom relies on software. But because of the added telephoto lens, the zoomed in images are much clearer than before.
The dual camera can uses machine learning to create a depth map. After selecting the camera app’s new “portrait” mode, you’ll immediately see the depth effect in real time.
We didn’t really get to see the effect in real time, but the photographic results Schiller did show looked damn good.
As you’ve likely guessed, Apple is sticking with an LCD Retina display, though much like the Apple Watch Series 2, it’s a much brighter display.
Then finally, Schiller got to the giant elephant in the room—audio. Apple couched the impending bad news by first talking about improved stereo speakers. Then came the Lightning-only EarPods. Goodbye, headphone jack.
Schiller quickly began to explain the madness:
“The reason to move on comes down to one word—courage,” Schiller explained. “This is really important, our smartphones are packed with technologies…it’s all fighting for space. Maintaining an ancient analog connector doesn’t make sense.”
Apple says its vision for audio will be wireless. Hence, Apple AirPods. Apple’s new ear gear will work for up to 5 hours on a single charge. When you open the case, the iPhone immediately recognizes the AirPods. All you have to do is press “connect.”
