Apple has finally went ahead and launched its much awaited iPhone 7 and it is soon expected to go on sale. The ultimate release of the handset saw a lot of speculations and leaks to be true while putting incorrect ones to the rest. Apple iPhones are here now and while some believe that nothing has been changed, other believe that the changes which have been made are quite subtle. However, Apple iPhones will continue to be one of the best in the market right now and here is an overview of the device for those who are considering an upgrade or planning to buy an iPhone.
Quad-core A10 Processor: This year around Apple has launched iPhone 7 with an A10 processor, which is a Quad-core CPU. This is an improvement over last year's iPhone 6s that ran on A9 (dual core) processor. Despite running on a dual core processor, iPhone 6s was the fastest handset in the market so we can only imagine what iPhone 7 must be like.
Optical Image Stabiliser: This year around, Apple has finally decided to upgrade the camera on iPhone 7 to include OIS. Notably, last year and the one before, OIS was limited only to the Plus variants of the iPhone. This means that the images taken by the iPhone 7 will have lesser blurs when capturing moving objects or when your hand shakes while clicking.
IP67 Certified: This is the first iPhone to come out since day one that has received IP67 certification. Since it is already out on a large number of Android devices, it means a world to the iPhone users. What this means is that iPhone users will now be able to use their handset a bit freely without fearing the little splash or drizzle.
Wide Color Gamut display: Apple iPhone 7 comes with a Wide Color Gamut display, which is a first for the Apple. What this means is that iPhone 7 is able to present all colors in their more natural form. With this technology, iPhone 7 is now better equipped to handle 4K videos and render them perfectly. The multimedia prowess of an iPhone just got better with this technology.
Closed ecosystem: This is the only complain that any new user converting to Apple might have against the brand. Not being able to download content on the device or share the content you have on your iPhone with friends is a deal breaker for many.
