The iPhone 7 release might be more disappointing than expected
iPhone 7, being a ‘non-S’ iteration of Apple’s iPhone line-up, was initially expected to be very different in terms of design than the current models. However, recent leaks have revealed the iPhone 7 to have similar design as the iPhone 6 and 6s, although with updated specs. If this itself was not disappointing enough, recent reports suggest that the iPhone 7 will have no headphone jack.
When the prototype image for iPhone 7 was leaked, it revealed two bottom firing speaker holes along with the removed headphone jack. This was a moment of rejoice for potential customers, thinking that Apple might have replaced the headphone jack to provide better sound quality with stereo speakers.
On a disappointing note, a recent report by Nowhereelse.fr suggest that the iPhone 7 might not have a secondary speaker after all. The leaked design schematics show that despite having two bottom firing speaker holes, there is no secondary speaker.
It looks like Apple is making a lot of compromises by trying to make the next iPhone thinner and compact. However, these compromises might end up costing them a good share of customers. Let’s hope that Apple doesn’t make any compromises on the battery size, since that would surely tick off many iPhone enthusiasts.
