IPhone 7 unveiled to the public


Apple releases the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus today, which mean long lines and wait lists for people who need to have the latest technological gadget.  While these new generation iPhones are not much different from the sixth generation, there are some very notable upgrades and changes to the new iPhones.  According to Apple’s website,  one of the most notable upgrades is the improved battery life, which is the strongest of any iPhone and charges 2 times faster than the iPhone 6.

Kacey Shughart, freshmen who owns an iPhone 5, has trouble with its battery.  “I charge my phone in the morning and by the end of the day it’s already done, and I don’t feel like I use it all that much.”  This will not make Shughart buy the new iPhone because, “It’s really expensive and that’s a lot of money for a phone.”

Matthew Shatzer, freshmen, owns a Samsung Galaxy S6.  He thinks this is better than any iPhone because “I never have any problems with it and the battery lasts forever.”  He recommends spending less money on a Droid than on this new product.

Other notable changes to the iPhone include the 25 percent brighter screen display, updated cameras, and 3 times faster LTE usage. It has a 12 megapixel camera with 7 megapixels for FaceTime, and optical image stabilization to improve quality of the video captured.

Lakota Fulton, currently a freshman said,  ‘It seems like a bit of a waste of money because they’re coming out with a new one every year and one generation iPhone is never much different from the last one.”

Perhaps one difference in this product is the lack of a headphone jack.  The news ear pods come with a lightening adapter or a converter in order to use old headphone sets. So regardless of this change, users can still listen to music in the same ways.

The average cost of this new iPhone is between $600-$800, and as mentioned before, becomes available to the public today.
