1Seven things we like about the iPhone 7
Time has passed, and after innumerable leaks, the iPhone 7 range has finally been unveiled by Apple. To give you a quick recap, these two new phones aren’t very different from the previous models in terms of looks, but they kick in a highly advanced processor and a number of other additions, including a fresh set of cameras, that enhance their appeal furthermore.
Now there are also some disappointing aspects to this new smartphone lineup. For starters, Apple has decided to eschew the universally approved headphone jack. Plus wireless charging and a larger battery are things that still elude the iPhone range. But we’re here to look only at the exciting new features that the devices offer. Let’s get going with the list then.
– Water resistance
Various tests have proven that previous-gen iPhones are pretty water resistant as they are. We’re not sure then why Apple never decided to advertise this. However, this year around, they have chosen to let everyone know that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus can be used while it’s raining. And in fact, they can also survive under 1 meter of water for a duration of 30 minutes.
However, Apple describes the devices to be ‘splash, water, and dust resistant’ which means it’s better if you play safe, and don’t immerse them in water. One more thing to note here is that charging while the handset is wet is also a bad idea, as any kind of damage due to water will not be covered under warranty.
