3 Radical Changes Which Are Planned For Apple Inc. (APPL)’s iPhone 7


Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:APPL) has already set the ground running in line with its annual iPhone refresh cycle. New leaks causing shockwaves online suggest the iPhone maker is looking to light the smartphone arena with the most radical iPhone yet, in 2016. With speculation rife online on what to expect, three new features look set to affirm the tech giant’s creativity and innovation, when it comes to smartphones.

Waterproof iPhone

It is a rumor that refuses to go away with reports claiming Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:APPL) has finally cracked the code on the same. The next iPhone probably iPhone 7 should be waterproof as it remains unclear whether the current line of iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S plus are waterproof.

Reports state that Apple is considering ditching the headphone jack should further affirm the possibility of a completely waterproof iPhone. Being the deepest port in the iPhone, the headphone jack remains one of the hardest to waterproof and one of the reason the feature has long been missing in iPhones.

No More Aluminum Body

It is still unclear which material the new iPhone will be made from as it becomes clear Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:APPL) is planning to ditch the Aluminum body. The Commercial Times claims iPhone 7 will be made from ‘New Compound Materials’ an improvement of aluminum.

In June, Apple received a patent for NonCapacitive materials with anodized metal appearance. The material is designed to give devices metallic enclosure without interfering with the functioning of electronic components such as antennas touchscreen and touchpad.

No More Antennae Stripes

Apple has long stayed true to its iPhone design that its design team remains reluctant to tweak. The use of aluminum body has all but continued to subject iPhones to antenna stripes. The bands at the back are a must as they create areas where wireless signals can escape the deadening effect of aluminum.

With Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:APPL) moving to use ‘New Compound Materials’ that don’t interfere with electronic signals, the antennae stripes should be a thing of the past.
