iPhone 7 (iPhone 7 Plus) Release Date
Traveling back time, we can see that since 2013 Apple has been releasing its product in the month of September. iPhone 5c and 5s were launched on 10 September(2013), iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were launched on 9th September(2014) and iPhone 6s and 6s Plus were launched on 9 September, 2015. Therefore, we are expecting Apple to maintain this tradition next year as well. However, our close observation reveals that Apple prefers launching their product on Tuesdays. So the most probable days for releasing Apple’s phone will be either 6th or 13th September, 2016. And thereafter it will be released globally by the end of the month.
On the other hand, there are also rumors that Apple is going to launch its next generation iPhones i.e. iPhone 7 and iPhone 7s in two different dates. This decision might have been taken to deal with the global competition. So we can expect iPhone 7 in coming spring and iPhone 7s in the next autumn. If these phones are not released simultaneously, then we are not expecting some major updates to be included in the two phones. However, these are mere speculations and we are not really sure about it. So mark the date for iPhone 7 Release date.

|iPhone 3G||June 2008|
|iPhone 3G S||June 2009|
|iPhone 4||June 2010|

iPhone 7 Features
Processor and OS
According to the latest update iPhone 7 is going to be integrated with hexa core A10 processor which is going to boost the performance of the gadget by manifold times. The iPhone 6s model is powered by a dual core processor and the flagship smartphones from other brands is integrated with quad core processor. Therefore, whether or not iPhone 7 is going to come with a hexa core processor is a big question to us. If it turns out to be true, then Apple is definitely going to create a bench mark in terms of the processor.
Along with upgraded processor, we are also expecting iPhone 7 to come with better RAM. The iPhone 7 is rumored to be incorporated with 3GB RAM to support the high end processor. However, some of the experts of the opinion that 3GB RAM will be present in only the iPhone 7 Plus model as it features the dual camera for processing image. We feel that iPhone 7 is definitely going to come with a better processor than its predecessor. If not a hexa core processor, a quad core processor is definitely on its way in iPhone 7 which will be comfortably supported by 2GB RAM.
iPhone 7 is going to be powered by iOS 10 which is coming with some tremendous updates like an improvised Siri that will be synced with the third party apps as well and some other updates.
iPhone 7 Display
We have been expecting an iPhone with edge to edge display from a long time and though our expectation has not been met still now, but we are keeping our hopes high even this time. Recently, a patent was submitted which showed a display with bumpers at the four edges. This will protect the screen from getting cracked if it accidentally falls off your hand. However, Apple keeps submitting different kinds of patents which are not in use still now, so whether this is going to be realized this time or not, we are not sure. 3D Touch feature which was present in its predecessors will be present in iPhone 7 as well and might be with additional features.
iPhone 7 Screen
The two variants of iPhone 7 are going to come with screen measuring about 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch and sharper screen resolution of 1080p. There are also rumors that iPhone 7 is going to come with OLED display instead of the LCD display which is gathered from an update by the supply chain source.
Moreover, chances are there iPhone 7 and 7s will be made with a more durable material that will ensure that the phone has a stronger built. We were expecting iPhone 6 display to be made from sapphire glass, unfortunately we didn’t get to see that. So we would be happy to see a stronger and more durable sapphire glass display in the next generation iPhone.
There are rumors that Apple is going to do away with the home button in the next generation phone. This will help in making the screen bigger in size. However, iPhone 6s Touch ID is integrated in the home button of the phone, therefore removing it would mean that the touch id needs to be moved to either side of the phone or on the screen itself. Apple has lately submitted a patent were the touch id was present in the screen of the phone, so chances of our prediction turning into reality is high.
iPhone 7 series might come with a non metal body. The possible alternatives are ceramics, plastics or liquid metal. But what it will be, we are not sure. However, we must say that the metal body iPhone 6s looks really chic and we would be happy to see a redesigning of the phone with the same metal.
Every year Apple submits thousands of patents and 2015 is no exception. Lately it has submitted a wrap around display with a curved screen. Therefore, we can expect iPhone 7 to come with a curved wraparound display.
Rumored Add On Features
After all these years, chances of iPhone 7 to be water proof are really high. Patent has been submitted and though the research is still going on but we are expecting Apple to introduce this feature from the next generation phones.
Gesture passcodes are quite popular amongst the Android users and we might expect the same in iOS platform as well. In the iOS 9 platform we have to use a 6 digit passcode which the users are not at happy to use. Gesture entry technique patent has been already submitted by Apple and gesture passcode might be integrated in iPhone 7.
In the next generation phones, SIM card is expected to be integrated within the phone and it aligns with different carriers and has the same feature as the normal SIM card. Introduction of this feature in iPhone 7 is going to make the phone far more secured.
Wireless charging unit was expected to arrive along with iPhone 6s, however it was not introduced. So we are expecting Apple to introduce wireless charging option in the next generation phone.
It goes without saying that iPhone 7 will be powered by iOS 10 and therefore it will flaunt all the new features that are being included in the next generation iOS platform.
iPhone 7 Camera
iPhone 7 is going to be integrated with a 12MP primary and 5MP secondary camera just as it is present in iPhone 6S. However, the main attraction as far as iPhone 7’s camera is concerned will be the performance booster that will be added to it. Firstly, it might be equipped with OIS. Secondly, the recent leaks suggest that it will come with a bigger lens that will let in more light and thus ensure better quality picture.
Chances of iPhone 7 coming with dual camera are remote. However, we might get to see iPhone 7 Plus or iPhone 7 Pro with dual lens which is definitely going to be a one of kind feature in iPhone.
iPhone 7 Battery
iPhone 6S’s battery was not so good and in this genre we are expecting some good improvisations in the next generation iPhone. However, there are already rumors that iPhone 7 is going to be the slickest smartphone ever produced and therefore chances of it to come with a better battery are sleek. Nonetheless, tech geeks have dig out the news that though the battery will be sleeker but it will be stronger than the present one.

We have been requesting Apple to introduce expandable memory in iPhones from a long time. But our requests have remained unheard. So it is our earnest request again that iPhone 7 comes with expandable memory capacity that will allow us to buy the basic model of iPhone and then supplement it with a MicroSD card with greater capacity.
iPhone 7 base model should come with greater memory as the iOS takes away half of the space of the phone and when the phone gets updated, there is a lot more space crunch. So the base model of iPhone 7 should come with at least 32 GB memory.
Rumored iPhone 7 Price
As far as the price of this product is concerned, it is really difficult to speculate about this. However, previously we have seen the price of the flagship products have remained more or less the same. Therefore, we can guess that iPhone 7 will come with a price tag of $850 for 16GB, $1000 for 64GB and $1100 for 128GB.
Cool iphone 7 Features
Rumors suggest that iPhone 7 might come with a smart connector just like the one present in Apple’s iPad Pro range. The idea of iPhone 7 coming with a connector first appeared in a leaked image of the model of the phone. These connectors are basically used for connecting the gadget to a keyboard. Since these connectors have hardly any utility in the iPhone 7, we were wondering that it might not be true. However, there are chances that iPhone 7 Plus might be equipped with the connectors.
There are also rumors that the traditional home button of the iPhone might be replaced with a pressure sensitive finger print sensor. The pressure sensitive button can be used for different purpose.
The Chinese tech site Weibo came up with the news that iPhone 7 might come up with a range of new features like fingerprint scanner, dual camera, multi force touch technology, wireless charging and USB type charging point that will be compatible with the earplugs as well.
These are the rumored features of iPhone 7 that the tech geeks are talking about right now. Apart from these here is a list of features that we would like to see in iPhone 7:
Firstly, it would be great if iPhone 7 comes with a wireless charger that will be compatible with iWatch as well. Wireless technology is widely available all over the world now, so it would be great if Apple introduces it this time.
Secondly, we would like to see iPhone 7 in different sizes suiting the needs of the different users. Along with the 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch sizes, we would also like to see iPhone 7 with 4 inch screen with all the same features.
Thirdly, iPhone 7 with an unbreakable screen will be a tremendous feature that will definitely enhance the number of fan following of iPhones worldwide.
Fourthly, iPhone 7 with a curve edged display is another feature that we will definitely like to see. We would love to see iPhone 7 with round edged display.
Fifthly, Touch ID was already introduced in iPhone 6S which helps us to unlock the phone by recognizing the finger print of the owner. In iPhone 7 we would like to see biometrics going to the next level so that if we just look at it, the phone will get unlocked.
We will also expect iPhone 7 to come with a QHD display. That will enhance the users experience while playing video games in it or while watching movies in it. QHD display is a common feature of all flagship smartphones, so Apple might just be in the league by introducing it this time with iPhone 7.
We will keep updating our readers about more news and rumors about iPhone 7, until then keep reading!!
