Was The iPhone 6s Plus The Last Great iPhonein BlogNobbers
Yesterday Apple officially launched the iPhone 7 and I can officially say that I am over it. I feel like the buzz has gone from the 'Rinse and Repeat', concept applied to Mobile Technology. The next step on the same thing releases are boring now.
I watched the iPhone 7 Geek party that they had yesterday and for the first time there was nothing about the iPhone that I cared about. I actually feel like they should just transition into new products now, I am excited about seeing what they do with driverless vehicles, but I am un-excited about the phones now. The things I think they should be doing with phones at this point, they just are not touching the surface. I am bored with it. The fact that we have to wait a whole year for this event for the world to watch is great marketing for Apple addicted iPhone junkies to get hyped up about going to spend $900 more dollars on just to have the device. The one they currently have works perfectly fine. I am sure I will get some arguments on this, but that is the cult of Apple and I am ok with the challenges. Opinions are like mouth holes, we all have one, like other parts!
The cult just grows. When I say I realize that my nephew and niece will only know the world where Apple Touch existed, I see the generation of people who will, break a sweat, spending an entire day fighting with you about Apple and Steve Jobs if you say anything contrary to the cult belief. They scare me. While they think it is cute, they boarder on gang activity. (Over a darn phone. Really?)
I just think there are so many more things these devices can do. They seem to want to exhaust all of the boring actions first before we get to see the really innovative actions. Maybe I am just over stimulated by the excessive amount of repetition. Aren't you?
I want to do a survey, of everyday people who own any type of cellphone, to see what people think phones should do at this point. I just feel like they are just putting out this phone to say they released a device this year. (Pulling at strings or something) I almost feel robbed of a real innovative release from a company that brought us mobile Touch. They have literally gone to sleep on the job. Maybe they are diverting focus to other projects. I think they gave up on trying to match the legacy of Steve Jobs.
The device is labeled iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and the specs for each device is as follows, thanks to Sprint:
A few of the exciting New Features are:
· New Black and Jet Black finishes
· Splash and water resistant1
· New Home button
· Stereo Speakers (first time ever)
· New Sensor Technology Cameras. Best ever in a smartphone.
· Water and Dust Resistance: IP67
· A10 Fusion processor, most powerful processor in a phone ever
· HD Retina Wide Color gamut display
· 7MP selfie camera
· iOS 10 and iCloud
· 4.7-inch Retina HD display with 1334-by-750 resolution and wide color
· New 12MP camera, optical image stabilization, Quad-LED True Tone flash, and Live Photos
iPhone 7 Plus:
· 3D Touch
· 5.5-inch Retina HD display with 1920-by-1080 resolution and wide color
· 12MP wide-angle and telephoto cameras with optical zoom at 2x, digital zoom up to 10x, optical image stabilization, Quad-LED True Tone flash and Live Photos
I own an iPhone 6s Plus. Most of this stuff is on the devices from other companies. Water resistance is the only thing that is remotely intriguing to me here on the iPhone 7. I want to hear from you, real people who use mobile devices all the time. If you are anywhere on the planet, contribute your piece even if you disagree. I think your input could help craft the device you really want!
