iPhone 7 Released September 2016
The iPhone 7 has been released by Apple in San Francisco California. The good news for those of us in Orange County is that this latest iPhone is available immediately. And Apple lovers in Irvine and Orange County have been anxiously awaiting the iPhone 7 as well as the iPhone 7 Plus… and in due time, iPhone 7 repair services to follow.
As with previous models of the Apple iPhone, the iPhone 7 will be susceptible to screen damage and repair needs. If you need an iPhone 7 repair, you have some new choices on on the market both directly from Apple and from 3rd party repair companies like RepairZoom in Irvine.
When you see the new iPhone 7 you may think it looks a lot like the previous iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s. And while it’s true they look similar, the iPhone 7 is a serious upgrade from the previous models. And Apple wants you to know it!
The biggest upgrade is in the camera technology. For the regular iPhone 7 the camera is a nice upgrade. For the bigger iPhone 7 Plus is it a massive upgrade. Apple is actually including two cameras embedded side-by-side in the iPhone 7 Plus.
What is missing? The headphone jack.
iPhone 7 Repair – But look… NO headphone jack repairs!
Apple went with some significant changes here:
- Traditional analog headphone jack port has been removed
- All customers get the new Lightning interface EarPods in the box
- Also included – an adaptor for analog headphones
- NEW – Coming in October will be Wireless AirPods (extra cost)
Another improvement in the iPhone 7 will include a much longer battery life. This will offer the longest battery life of any iPhone in history. Apple is giving specs of 40 hours of wireless audio playback and 13 hours of wireless audio playback.
The home button technology, while it looks like the previous versions, is actually totally new. It may not look like it, but Apple has redesigned the engine behind the iPhone 7 home button, making it more feature filled than ever. It has the same TouchID fingerprint technology, but now has a new pressure sensitive technology similar to the touchpad on the new MacBooks. This is enabled by a new “taptic feedback engine” which will also be open to application developers. You will experience new vibrations and other features from this new iPhone 7 home button technology.
All in all… the new iPhone 7 is a bet on the existing form factor or the most recent models of iPhones but stuffed with the latest technology inside. We love the choices Apple has made and expect another blockbuster sales hit by Apple in California and Orange County Apple Stores.
