There are few events which drive the internet crazy and one of them is news regarding the launch of a new iPhone. Check out the latest rumors, speculations and features of the upcoming iPhone that is circulating the net right now.
Right now, we have a rather definitive idea of how the next iPhone is going to be. However, the million dollar question is when it will launch. The latest iPhone launches have settled into a constant schedule where new models are launched every September.
For quite a few years now, we have seen a major upgrade for a year, followed by its minor upgrade variants with C or S monikers. For example, in September 2012, received the brand new iPhone 5 followed by the 5C and 5S in September 2013.
The upcoming iPhone 7 will most likely be launched during a keynote Apple Event held by CEO Tim Cook. There will also be additional speeches from Eddy Cue, the senior vice president of internet software and services along with Phil Schiller, the senior vice president of worldwide marketing.
The latest variant will run iOS 9. This is the newest version of the Apple OS software, designed for iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch, which was announced at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in early June.
There will be major updates and new features like Siri getting more proactive in recognizing your behavior, improvements to the long awaited existing Maps and Notes along with promises for a longer battery life.
The News App will deliver the experience of reading a magazine with glossy, large visuals. If Apple sticks to the current pattern of iPhone design, we will have an iPhone 6S with the 4.7inch display and an iPhone 6S+ with the 5.5 inch display.
However, Apple could also choose to discard its usual naming convention and go straight for the next big iPhone 7. There are many new and advanced features that we can expect.
The Force Touch and the Taptic Engine from the Apple Watch and MacBook could make an entry on the new iPhone, which gives users, new ways to interact with their devices.
With Force Touch, the iPhone will be able to detect how hard the user is pressing and different actions can be carried out accordingly. For example, if you press the fast-forward button in a video player, you can vary the speeds with lighter and heavier presses.
Meanwhile, there are rumors that the upcoming version of the iPhone will see the biggest ever camera upgrade. According to blogger John Gruber, it will be able to deliver photos with the quality of a DSLR camera.
