    Default My iPhone 7 and 7 Plus predictions

    Here's what I'm predicting for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus:

    7: 1920 by 1080 5.1" Retina HD display with 3D Touch, waterproof design, A10 and M10 processors, either 2GB of ram or higher, better camera, FaceTime HD 1080p or even 4K recording, new feature that 6s doesn't have.

    7+: QHD or 4K (UHD) 5.7" or 6" Retina HD display with 3D Touch, waterproof design, A10 and M10, 2GB or higher ram, better camera with OIS, FaceTime HD 1080p or 4K recording with OIS, new feature that 6s+ doesn't have.

    What features do you all think the next iPhones will have?

    I'd like true wireless charging. I'm not interested in the waterproofing.

    You can't be serious. The 6s and 6S plus just got released. Can't we enjoy the newness of our devices? Lol

    If you have true wireless charging, you'll have waterproofing. Sealed case.

    I think, naturally, that wireless charging will lead to more water resistance. You'll still have the headphone port, but look at Watch. It has inductive charging and is water proof, to a certain extent. Inductive charging eliminates the one major physical hole in the device.

    I admit, I'm new to the Apple world with the 6s being my own personal first iPhone (my wife has had them since the 4) so my wishes could all easily be pipe dreams.

    I'm hoping for USB-C. One cable for iPhone, iPad, and MacBook.
    Front facing speakers
    I would love to see the bezels get shrunk
    While I don't think it is ready yet, I'd like to see the fingerprint reader incorporated into the screen.

    I believe they have some room to work with in the bezels. When you compare the usable screen size to the size of the phone, Apple is pretty far down the list. For comparison sake, the 6S has a screen to body ratio of 65.71%. Compare that to the Moto X Style which has front facing speakers and a screen to body ratio of 76.36%.

    Front facing speakers require grates in the front of the phone. Would kill the aesthetics.

    Honestly I would like to see something new from the iPhone 7 - something of a game changer that would shake the whole mobile industry up like the release of the original iPhone did. As to what that feature would be I don't know. I'm not sure waterproofing would appeal to everyone, but I think they could continue to push the envelope with their 3D touch and see where that leads them.

    Realistically, I don't think that any phone release will ever be like the original iPhone. The iPhone literally changed the definition of the word "phone". At this point, all I realistically expect is incremental improvements over previous models. I have trouble thinking of much more that I would expect my phone to do so not having to plug it in to charge it tops my wishlist.

    I hope I'm wrong.

    I expect them to actually go wireless completely. Wireless charging and wireless airbuds. No more wires please!

    To make a new revolution like the first Iphone was will be impossible.

    Maybe, but if you take a look at how the Surface Pro integrated their speakers, they're barely noticeable. They sort of look like the ear piece speaker the iPhone uses currently at the top of the phone.

    Whut. *looks at 920, and 1020 and 1520*. Nope, that is false.

    That being said, the 6s/6s+ do seem to have some water resistance. That being made more or a kind of "splash guard" or some wording from Apple wouldn't shock me. As for the phones...

    7m- 4.3", "750p" display, A10, 2GB LPDDR4X RAM, 16GB base storage. Same physical size as 5
    7- 5" 960x1704 display, A10, 2GB LPDDR4x RAM, 32GB base storage. Same physical size as 6
    7+: 5.7" 1280x2272 display, 2GB LPDDR4x RAM, 64GB base storage. Same physical size as 6+

    600, 700, 800 starting prices respectively.
    All with lens+sensor combo the 6s+ has currently, all with force touch.
    The physical size should not change at all, or expand a little bit to get these screen sizes in. Based on various phones I have including 2x4", 3x4.5", 2x4.7", 5", 2x5.5" and 2x6". (including, but not limited to L520, iPhone 5s, Lumia 920, Lumia 1020, Moto G 1st gen, Fire Phone, iPhone 6s, Moto G 2nd gen, iPhone Six Plus, LG G Flex 2, L1520 and LG G flex)

    The A10 will not have an integrated modem, for those listening to the absurd rumors that the A10 SoC could have an integrated Intel modem. My lips are otherwised sealed on it.

    I hope for wireless charging, but, it really is a "nice feature" and not a "must have feature". Much like I've found Force Touch to be moving between the Six Plus and the Six s. Given how conservative Apple is with the majority of their hardware I don't expect to see it in the phones.

    The 7m stands for 7 mini, I cannot think of a better name, and, Apple wouldn't ever say what the m is for anyways.

    No home button, Touch ID in the force touch screen, ip rated waterproof, beefy battery 3000mah min, more hidden nfc lines, dual speakers at both ends, top n bottom sides, 3 go ram, ois for the smaller 4.7in model, and reintroduction of the 4iner into the lineup with the 4.7 and 5.5.

    I've been keeping my ear to the ground over this and all the signs point towards it being thinner and having no headphone jack, as we already suspect. Dear god I hope neither of these come to pass. Neither of them.

    Wireless charging and waterproofing would go some way to alleviating the problems I have about the rumours. As would a device made of a much stronger material than currently and a bezel-less (or at least insanely minimal bezel) screen too.

    I just don't want a thinner phone; the 6 needed a case for me to hold it properly in my large hands, a thinner phone will be even more ridiculous for me.

    I don't own Bluetooth headphones and unless Apple supplies some with the new phone, I refuse to go out and buy some just to be able to listen to music. After all, the cheaper Bluetooth ones would sounds just as bad as the Apple headphones would through the 3.5mm Jack...

    If it doesn't have a headphone jack, I won't be able to listen to music from my phone in my car either as I don't have Bluetooth there. What do I do then, eh?

    All I read about the iPhone 7 rumours is making me hate it even more. I hope everything I read is wrong, I truly do.

    I'm actually starting to look more at Android again. Well, the Keybote whenever they do it will consolidate it one way or the other for me I think.

    Wait and see what develops. The stories I have read are that if the earphone jack goes away they will incorporate and provide earbuds with a lightning jack connector. That is how I currently use my 6S in the car (have Bluetooth but seems the sound is better with a wired connection). Too early to tell what may be in store for a phone that will most likely be announced 8 months from now.

    Talk is talk. And so far there's been no comments noncrete evidence of no headphone jack. Just because a handful of writers and analyst say it might doesn't make it so. Apple has to be taking note of the negative response to the rumor. My guess is that whatever they do will be satisfactory to all. Hmm!

    I don't care about the headphone jack, I kind of hope they kill it off anyway. You know if they do, they'll give you some lightning enabled earbuds and I'm sure they'll sell an adapter so you can still use your old headphones. I'm a bigger fan of Bluetooth headphones, especially for working out - things don't get in the way. What I would like to see is a smaller form factor 7 Plus. Better screen to body ratio. Kill the bezels. My wife has an S6 edge + and it has a 5.7" screen and is actually a little smaller phone than my iPhone. I like the 5.5" screen, but I'd like a smaller overall phone to come with that screen. I'd prefer better battery life, but I get pretty good battery life on my 6s Plus right now - I'd just like that "ain't no way I'm killing this thing in a day" feeling. I'd also like a QHD screen. The 6s Plus screen is very good, accurate, etc., but it honestly isn't as nice as the Note 5 or S6 edge +. Apple could do a little better in that realm. They would need to up the regular 7 to a better screen too. No need for 720p in this day and age.

    Just my thoughts on the matter.
