It’s only speculation, but it’d be pretty sweet if Apple upgraded the sound quality. It is also speculated that we will see them reveal the iPhone 6C, which is the cheaper version. A slowdown in iPhone sales is becoming more of a possibility with intensifying competition as well as market saturation in the high end smartphone sector.
Until Apple releases its official figures, there is no way of really knowing. Here’s a look at what iPhone 7 specs to look out for when the firm hosts its conference. Research company Trefis said on Friday that the lack of clarity on Apple Watch is creating an overhang for the company’s stock. Ming Chu Kuo says that the next iPhone will be thicker than the last release from Apple. The iPhone 6 clocked in at 6.9mm.
The new iPhone could have a new processor from Apple and this may be in the form of the A9 processor with brand new architecture.
While Bluetooth-powered keyboards, mouse and trackpads may be commonplace now, we could soon see solar power replacing the current technology.
We’re not looking at a memory change this time around.
It is anticipated that the latest patent will help Apple deceives store backup energy, when the primary source dies.
New colors are also being suggested for the iPhone 7. The firm did not estimate Apple Watch sales and expects scrutiny from investors in regards to Apple’s iPhone unit sales globally, but particularly in China. It is worth noting that this is just a patent application and may not see integration, but Apple has been researching solar technology for years. The company is reported to have asked its manufacturing partners to prepare for an initial production run in the range of 85 million to 90 million units for its next-generation iPhone (expected to be unveiled in September) by December 31.
With or without the Watch, Apple is posited to report strong numbers this year. The leak shows us the alleged back panel of the upcoming Apple flagship. The case of the device was leaked by 9to5Mac on June 30. Acknowledging the same, Apple has started to work in the direction and has received a patent titled “Wireless devices with touch sensors and solar cells” (via Patently Apple).
Those include a smaller motherboard.
The patent shows that the solar cells would likely be hidden underneath the surface, which will be touch sensitive.
