Is The New Iphone 7 Worth The Price?

On September 7th Apple finally unveiled their iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. With the new release of the iPhone comes the new technology trend. Trendsetters around the world will eagerly be awaiting September 16th as that is the first day the new iPhones go on sale with preorders starting on September 9th. Quite frankly they only want to say one thing, “I own the iPhone 7 the day it was released.”

The new iPhone 7 was unveiled by Apple and it is lackluster for the price you pay.

There is no doubt in my mind that this version will be successful despite the phone lacking innovation thanks to Apple’s strong brand loyalty. Let’s explore some of the features to see what I mean:

iPhone 7 Features & Price

Without getting into tech talk here is what you need to know about the new iPhone. The camera got better, the processor got faster, the graphics are better, the battery life is supposedly two hours longer, there is more storage, and the iPhone got a minor makeover. This is the generic stuff you expect with almost every new version of a phone. Nothing amazing here but an upgrade nonetheless.

The real buzz around the new iPhone 7 is that both models are now water resistant and the headphone jack is gone.

Honestly, I do not know why there is any buzz around the phone being water resistant. Their competitors have had this feature available for years so this is Apple playing catch-up rather than innovating. In place of the headphone jack, Apple attached a second speaker for louder, clearer music. So how do you listen to music now? You have the option of plugging your headphone into the Lightning port that is used for charging via an adapter or using Bluetooth headphones.

I understand that earphone wires can be annoying but I cannot see how this feature alone sets Apple apart from the rest. Any phone with Bluetooth technology can use wireless headphones so this is not revolutionary. Additionally, wireless headphones are relatively new to the market and can be very costly. Apple believes that customers will be willing to purchase their pair of wireless AirPods for $159 to solve this problem.
