Since the launch of the first iPhone in 2007, Apple fans have gotten used to getting a brand new, or at least an upgraded version of the phone, every year.
This year is no exception, and for obvious reasons, we keep close tabs on rumors about the new device. The new iPhone (likely called 6S or 7) should be on the market in two or three months, so let's have a look at five major changes we might find.
It's not that eight megapixels are something you should feel ashamed about, but hey -- Samsung's flagship, the Galaxy S6, has 16, so something definitely needs to be done, right?
Let's not speculate about how many people actually use such a camera’s full potential. The way we see it, more megapixels have never hurt anyone -- neither has the 4K recording ( which is standard these days), so thumbs up, Apple!
The currently used Gorilla Glass comes with a name that pretty much says it all -- it's anything but easy to break. However, a new technology has sneaked into the manufacturing process. And, just like the high-end Apple Watch, the new iPhone might come equipped with a sapphire display.
This step should ensure higher display durability and improved resistance against scratches and shatter. Definitely a step forward, especially for those who try to protect their iPhone as much as they can;)
Force Touch is another piece of technology that the iPhone 6S/7 might take from the Apple Watch (the latest MacBook uses it as well).
So far, the rumors have been playing it down, but this is definitely a feature we can't wait to get our hands on. If the new phone really does come with it, it'll be the end of an era -- one where you had two options: You either tapped on the display or didn’t.
With Force Touch, the display is pressure-sensitive, thus it responds to how hard you, for example, tap an icon.
Pink. Yeah, that's what they say. Apple has already played around with this color -- you might remember the iPhone 5C, but do you actually know anyone who bought one?
We've got nothing against pink, it just kind of doesn't feel right, and we can't imagine what it would look like on a phone the size of the iPhone 6 Plus.
So here's a question for you: do you think Apple will really go with pink? Let us know on Facebook.
It seems like everyone who has at least some sort of internal information from Apple is sure about this -- the dimensions will not change, which means we can expect the same 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screens.
However, some say the new iPhone could be 0.006 inches (0.15 mm) and 0.008 inches (0.2 mm) longer -- anyone knows anything about this? If that turns out to be true, you should still be fine with your Danny P. leather wallet case, so no worries;)
Some images have also leaked recently (see them here), and they reinforce these rumors.
Now the eternal question is -- to upgrade or not to upgrade? Let us know your thoughts on the new iPhone! And rest assured, whether you go for it or not, we've got you covered.
