Apple Inc has addressed claims that say the performance of older phones is slowed down by the iPhone maker deliberately. It was suspected that the company is trying to force customers to upgrade their phones by making their old phones run slower.
After using Google’s Pixel XL smartphone for a few weeks, it has highlighted the iPhone’s glaringly lacking key features. Woah, woah there. iPhone supporters, hear me out. You’ll have plenty to defend your smartphone of choice down in the comments section.
When Apple killed the headphone jack on the latest iPhone, we were assured it would be okay, and Apple was really just being “courageous.” Not only was there an adapter in the box, but Apple was releasing the AirPod wireless earbuds. For a mere $159, you’d never have to worry about wires again. However, they still haven’t been released.
One of the things about the newly launched iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus that has been hotly debated is the removal of its 3.5mm jack. Losing the port, it turns out, isn't that big a deal for many people, though several others see it as a huge drawback. Even if you're okay using the included adapter, one thing that remains an issue is charging your phone while you're listening to music. Since the phone uses the same port to power up and also to play your music, you can't do both at the same time.
Over years the Apple’s brainchild holds its position not only as the most popular but either the fastest smartphone on the market.
You think that Jet Black finish comes cheaply? It turns out the iPhone 7 isn't just breaking the bank for smartphone buyers - it's costing Apple a pretty penny too.
A teardown by IHS Market estimates the overall component cost of the iPhone 7 to be $224.80, a price that also includes basic manufacturing costs. That's $36.89 more than IHS Market listed the iPhone 6S at, which goes someway to explaining the iPhone 7's $649 price tag.
Apple's iPhone 7 and 7 Plus hit shelves on Friday, September 16 (they're on preorder now), and you have a decision to make: stick with your phone for now or buy one of the new ones. Remember that the iPhone 7 Plus has the larger screen, second camera and slightly longer battery life. (For more details, here are all the differences between the two.) The new iPhones also ship with iOS 10, and many phones will upgrade to the new software starting September 13 -- here's the full list.
Apple just announced the iPhone 7 camera and iPhone 7 Plus dual camera.
Both smartphones come with upgraded cameras with the widest apertures we've ever seen on an iPhone, as well as machine-learning-assisted shooting.
Apple has also made them a bit more appealing to hardcore photographers, with the ability to shoot raw DNG images like you can get from a DSLR (or some Androids). Raw files offer users finer control when they're editing, but are a bit technical for casual shooters and can't be uploaded straight to Instagram.
Apple lifted the veil off the new iPhone 7 today at its fall event in San Francisco. The device, which leaked early on Twitter, will feature a 12-megapixel camera and jet black design with stainless steel Apple symbol.
The iPhone will come in five colors, Silver/White, Gold/White Rose Gold, "Black" and "Jet Black." The iPhone 7's home button will be a force-sensitive home button, moving away from one that users can physically press. The new home button is reminiscent of Force Touch and 3D Touch on previous Apple devices.
It’s official, folks. ‘See you on the 7th’ is Apple’s one-line invite to its September 7 event to unveil the iPhone 7 and, likely, a new Apple Watch and, unlikely, a new iPad.
Like last year, the traditional fall launch is scheduled at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, where senior Apple officials will join CEO Tim Cook for the unveiling of the next iterations of the iPhone.
