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.

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.
