Apple iPhone 7 - Unrivalled Elegance

Apple iPhone 7 - Unrivalled Elegance
Apple has always played a huge role in the smartphone industry. For starters, it has a proprietary ecosystem which contrasts significantly from Android. While Android is very open about changes to its user interface by various companies, Apple delivers a homogeneous experience across its product range. Whether you’re using an older iPhone 4 or the latest iPhone 7, you can expect a similar level of smoothness in the interface. At the same time, your experience on Android hinges on how well a certain company optimizes a particular version of Android to run on its hardware.

Apple’s new iPhone doesn’t revolutionize phones like it once did, but it brings a host of new changes that will delight most Apple fans.

One thing that hasn’t changed much on the new model is design. Apple embraced the rounded out design lines starting with iPhone 6 and decided that now isn’t the time to innovate. We couldn’t agree more because the existing design elements are visually stunning and comfortable to use even during long sessions. Designers of large devices must focus on ergonomics as we are using our smartphones more and more each day. Additionally, what is the point of having a large screen if you won’t be comfortable using it? Ensuring that the new iPhone stays in one piece is incredibly strong 7000 Series aluminium available in gold, rose gold, and silver colours alongside a new colour called Jet Black. Jet Black wonderfully supplements the current colour line-up and looks menacing both in gloss and matte finishes. One huge difference is the IP67 certification allowing quick dips in water. We don’t recommend taking your precious iPhone snorkelling, but accidentally dropping it into a bathtub shouldn’t turn it into a very expensive paperweight. In place of Apple’s familiar physical home button is a new haptic button designed to work in conjunction with the company’s Taptic Engine. Pressing a physical button evokes a very unique feeling of satisfaction, however Apple promises to deliver the same feeling using tactile feedback.

iPhones were out of the pixel race before it even began, featuring screens with 720p resolution. iPhone 7 follows the same course by having 750 x 1334 pixels stretched over 4.7-inches. Apple’s philosophy doesn’t revolve around cramming more pixels onto the screen, but rather on extracting maximum performance out of each individual pixel. The latest generation of Retina HD screens features a wider colour gamut meaning more colour shades are available to display content accurately. Tiny changes and tweaks make a world of difference in spite of smaller pixel count. We don’t know for how long the company can stick to 720p, seeing that mobile VR is becoming increasingly popular, and requires higher pixel density than current iPhones can handle. 3D Touch was introduced on last generation of devices and remains particularly useful with messages, email, calendar, etc. App developers are slowly starting to integrate 3D Touch to expand app functionality so we should see the full benefit of it fairly soon.

A hot topic of debate before the release of iPhone 7 was the headphone jack. Seeming simple in nature, the humble headphone jack can be found on every single device supporting audio standard. It’s a port so common, we seldom stop to think about it. Thanks to its widespread use, users don’t have to worry about compatibility or any other issues plaguing modern devices. Buy any pair of headphones you want and you’re certain that your phone is supported. Apple however decided that the headphone jack has run its course and that it was time for something new. Using new headphones called AirPods, iPhone 7 ushers us into a future without cables. Tangled headphones are a source of frustration for many commuters, therefore we hope going wireless makes for a more pleasurable experience. In case you already bought an expensive pair of wired headphones, Apple includes a 3.5mm headphone adapter that plugs into the phone’s Lightning port.

iPhone 7 hardware has been upgraded to include a more efficient A10 Fusion chip, increasing battery life by around an hour compared to iPhone 6S. Megapixel count on the rear sensor remains same as last year (12-megapixels), however engineers have made it slightly larger to improve low-light performance. The new sensor will produce richer images and have better responsiveness compared to previous generation of iPhones.




Instead of transforming Apple and smartphones in general, iPhone 7 takes a more subtle approach of refining each individual element and focuses on providing the best possible user experience. We certainly weren’t disappointed by it, although we miss having a headphone jack. The same thing was said about DVD drives on laptops, and those are nearly extinct nowadays. How big of a role does headphone jack play for you? Give iPhone 7 a closer look and decide for yourself!
