Apple is planning epic things for the iPhone 7. After the success of the iPhone 6, it would be hard to imagine that the company would be able to follow it up with the same type of success. However, it would appear as though Apple has a very clear idea of how their next major iPhone release will do in the market when it launches. This year will see the launch of the iPhone 6s lineup, which will mean that the iPhone 7 will be launched by Apple in the fall of 2016.
The latest report suggests that Apple is going to be putting 90 million iPhone 7’s to production, which would blow away any other model in terms of production and demand – if followed through on and that production translates to sales in store. It is partially unclear though where Apple will fall in the overall market though, at that point. We’re still more than a year away from the official launch of any iPhone 7, and we still have no idea what that might look like without the speculation and early-reports.
Speaking of the early reports which are already pouring in, one notable report suggested that there would be some major changes coming in the iPhone 7. While it is early some things have been also noted to be the same. The iPhone 7 will be going with the same size structure – so 4.7-inches and 5.5-inches. The difference being that the iPhone 7 is going to be introducing a pink color to offset the other color options, which have been popular to this point.
Interestingly enough though, some analysts and investors are pointing to an incredible statistic that was brought to light this week. Apple’s reported 99% satisfaction rate. This is something that has come as a total surprise to those who have been following the company, and even those who have an increasingly high belief that the iPhone is one of the best phones on the market – would have been viewed as crazy for expecting such results.
The iPhone 7 is going to be bringing Force Touch to the party. This will be a nice addition for iPhone’s and should really improve some of the functionality and expand usage on the iPhone devices, as well. The iPhone 7 should also include sapphire glass, which will be a significant upgrade to the product, as well as an update to the camera, which has seen modest improvements throughout. Right now many believe that 12-MP with the ability to shoot 4k video.
More impressively though than anything else might be the quality combined with timing. The timing of the release will be good in that it will be cashing in on those who are coming up on an upgrade now, but don’t want to use it on the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, or even the iPhone 6s when that releases later this year.
