If you’re a loyal fan of Apple, then you’re probably using each new iPhone for an entire year, then you’re selling it and buying the latest model, just to be up-to-date with the latest changes. In 2015, the iPhone 6S introduced the 3D Touch technology, which allowed a better interaction between the users and their devices. The pressure-sensitive display detects multiple levels of pressure, so a hard or light tap will trigger a different action (Peek and Pop). So, what to expect from the upcoming iPhone 7?

Likewise its predecessor, it came with a 4.7-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1334 x 750 pixels, which offers a pixel density of 326ppi, but as we were saying in the introduction, the flagship has a new addition, supporting the 3D touch technology which allows you to interact with other applications, depending on how hard or light you’re pressing on the screen. Fir example, a light tap will preview a message, by expanding it, while a hard press will let you interact with it.
The phone is powered by an Apple A9 Dual-Core Twister Processor clocked at 1.84GHz, which is between 70 and 90 percent faster than the A8, and it’s paired with a PowerVR GT7600 GPU and 2GB of RAM (double than on the iPhone 6).
Apple has also upgraded both cameras, and it was about time to increase their resolutions. The old iPhone 6 had an 8MP rear camera and a 1.2MP selfie snapper, but the successor came with a 12MP main camera with an aperture of F2.2, phase detection autofocus, dual-LED (dual tone) flash and simultaneous 4K video and 8MP image recording, while the front camera supports now 5MP and instead of a LED flash, it enables the Retina screen to illuminate shots taken in dark environments.

The successor will come in September, this year, and its rumored specs include the 3D Touch tech, a screen with a similar size, but the resolution might be increased, and it is believed that Apple will ditch the IPS LCD panels in favor of OLED displays. In our opinion, this won’t happen to soon, because other rumors suggest that Apple will adopt OLED screens only in 2018.
Also, the A10 processor will make its appearance with a M10 co-processor, and it will be produced by the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company that Samsung has collaborated with until now. The processor will be backed by 3GB of RAM and this will help the users to run more applications in the background without complaining about lags or crashes.
The flagship is rumored to be resistant to water, but it will allow liquid to enter inside, which will come out from the phone’s speakers. Also, it is known that the Apple Watch is protected against water by embedding the innards in resin, so we’re guessing that the iPhone 7 will have the same “fate”.
