iPhone 7 sparks praise and outrage

Smartphones have become increasingly popular over the past few years. Just take a look around at your surroundings and you are sure to find people with their phones out, staring intently at their screens. Technology companies such as Apple and Samsung release new phones periodically that seem to open doors to unexplored content, such as 3D touch in the iPhone 6 and wireless charging in the Galaxy S7. Apple announced its newest iPhone models, the iPhone 7 (4.7 inch) and iPhone 7 Plus (5.5 inch), on Sept. 7, sparking controversy over the absence of the headphone jack. There are two solutions to this problem – first, according to Forbes, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will come with new ear buds that connect through the Lightning connector port. Unfortunately, that means the user cannot charge their phone and wear their headphones at the same time. The other solution is something vastly different from any headset Apple has ever made, and that is the AirPods. The AirPods are wireless ear buds that play music when they are in the user’s ear and pauses once taken out. The user can also interact with Siri without even taking out his or her iPhone, just by pressing an ear bud twice. They come with a charging case that when placed inside, gives the headphones up to 24 hours of battery life and 5 hours of music with a single charge. The AirPods are set to be released sometime in late October and will cost $159.00. The AirPods are only one step towards the future of the advancement of mobile technology. Despite comments concerning losing the AirPods due to their small size, they will become such an integral part of listening to music that they will not be easily forgotten. Both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have new features that are sure to please a wide variety of phone users. Camera experts should take advantage of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus’s impressive camera. They both have optical image stabilization, which allows users to take pictures that appear more stable. Also, recording video in the dark will appear better than in previous iPhone models. In addition, the iPhone 7 Plus has two cameras which means that when you zoom in, the photo will not be so blurry. The depth-of-field effect, which is yet to have a release date, allows users to take photos that focus on the central object. Music Buffs can jam out even more with Apple’s brand new stereo speakers in both of the phones, which produces double the amount of volume than the iPhone 6S. Innovators will...
