Many expect the new phones iPhone 7 and 7 plus to be just another ‘number change,’ with its exteriors looking virtually identical to its newer ancestors: the iPhone 6S, 6S Plus and the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Sadly, such expectations are already in the making.


With insider information proving to be 100% accurate, it’s no wonder why many techie folks question the innovativeness of Apple. Contrary to popular opinion, a lot of changes has been taking place internally; not to mention the major camera overhaul on both models. So what can we expect from the new iPhone series?

For three years in a row, Apple has made no radical changes to the external design of its phones. Sticking to a classic shape may seem like the phones are outdated, especially when comparing them side by side to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy Note.

However, that is not to say that there were no significant changes made. The very first dramatic, and perhaps the most controversial difference between iPhone 7 and 7 plus is that both models do not have a headphone jack. Apple has also replaced the physical and iconic home button with a touch-sensitive surface, supporting the phone’s overall durability. The touch-sensitive surface allows haptic feedback that mimics the feeling of clicking the button. App developers can use this function to create exciting projects such as custom vibrations. Another great change is the removal of the antenna bands from the backside of the phone. Newer models now have them at the top and bottom edges.

And for those of you who aren’t blessed with keen eyesight, here’s one minute change you might have missed.
