Apple is expected to launch its iPhone 7 in September 2016, but what will it look like? The company has now officially launched a 4in iPhone called the iPhone SE and added a new product to its iPad Pro range, the iPad Pro 9.7. This all happened at the company’s annual town hall meeting, where Tim Cook discussed his company’s plans for the rest of the year as well introducing a bunch of new environmental initiatives.
iPhone 7 rumours are flying, and we’ve picked up lots of hints about new features that could appear in the iPhone 7, from wireless charging to a touchscreen with built-in Touch ID. It’s believed that Apple is going to ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack, and is working on an ‘unhackable’ iPhone, after its run-in with the FBI
Apple has clearly taken complaints from users to heart and for the iPhone 7 it’s upping the battery size. Because the new iPhone will likely arrive with Apple’s yet-to-be-confirmed iOS 10 software and an upgraded processor, it will offer even more power and better efficiency.
Likely to be boasting a processor called the A10 chip, the iPhone 7 will surely boast more power – although it’s anyone’s guess as to how much this will translate into actual usage. According to Korean site ETNews, Apple is currently in discussion with arch-rival Samsung over supplying OLED screens for its next phone.
This would shift the display over from the current LED model to a much more vibrant OLED screen. Such a move would likely make for better colour reproduction for videos and games, but might hamper battery life.
However, one change could be a huge boon for Apple fans.
