The iPhone 7 may be the best version of the Apple smartphone yet, but it attracts lukewarm response from critics and intellectuals.
Andrew Cunningham wrote in his assessment of Ars Technica, stating that the new iPhone’s practical improvements are commendable, but warned potential buyers that they would have to pay for the upgrade.
Apple usually offers new devices.” “Best waterproofing and battery life have been popular requests for iPhone features for years, and the camera and speed improvements aren’t sneezing, but if you want to get it, you’ll need to buy Apple’s vision for the future. ”
No buttons or wires
New features on the iPhone 7 are the replacement of the actual home button with pressure sensors and a bad vibration engine that emulate the feel of the button.
“Apple is clearly continuing its approach of removing any mechanical moving parts from its devices,” IHS Markit senior manager Ian Fogg told TechNewsworld.
Apple also recalled the headphone jack on the new iPhone.
Tim Pagarin, head of creative strategies for TechNewsWorld said, “The move was made with a clear vision to make the iPhone experience completely wireless in the future.”
While some reviewers saw the iPhone 7 as a precursor to Apple’s upcoming accessories, they could not hide their disappointment with the product with their bare hands.
Nilai Patel wrote in The Verge, “When I was using the iPhone 7, I felt that next year I would have to rethink the iPhone rumors.”
“All these bold future bets are legally exciting,” he said, but at the moment, using the iPhone 6s with home buttons and more converters is much the same in case you use the iPhone 7. ”
There is more to the new iPhone than here and now, David Pearce suggests writing for Wired as well.
“The phone is still great. Philosophically, Apple is opening the door. The iPhone 7 may not be a revolution, but it can act as a catalyst for many of them,” Pearce continued. “Your phone will be better in a few months. It will be better in a few months. Isn’t it exciting?”

With the iPhone 7, Apple lives with its rival, according to many critics, including The Wall Street Journal’s Geoffrey Fowler.
“Last year, when Apple was about to offer [iPhone 7] for sale,” he wrote. “Now Apple is catching up to Samsung, which added its Galaxy S7 equivalent and a waterproof camera six months ago.”
Apple has also protected display technology, as contestants have already moved to OLED displays, and David McQueen, director of ABI Research.
“For the ‘major’ year of the upgrade,” McQueen said, “Consumers may feel little change at the time the weight was added and what was done before considering the upgrade.”
An upgrade or not?
Critics said immediate questions about whether iPhone owners should upgrade to Seven.
“If you are already taking an iPhone 6S, there is an urgent need to upgrade, unless photos or badly improved battery life are needed,” Lisa Edikiko wrote in Time.
Gordon Kelly, writing in Forbes, gave a contrasting view.
“Pick up the iPhone 7 Plus without knowing what’s inside you and you’ll be disappointed,” he said.
“Kelly has had to do more to refresh the exterior of the new model after three generations (smaller bezels, better grip, etc.), but there’s still a lot here to enjoy it,” Kelly said. “However, the owners of the iPhone 7 Plus will have a lot of potential this year to keep them happy, until Apple tear down the notebook next year.
Wait until next year…
“It’s definitely a powerful phone,” wrote Edward Page in USA Today magazine. “But if you can cope, there is already discussion that a truly dramatic jump for the iPhone comes next year when this amazing smartphone celebrates its tenth anniversary.”
At this point, Apple is slowly showing content in iPhone updates rather than re-displaying them, said Pund-IT principal analyst, Charles King.
“Replacing the industry-standard headphone jack with special technology suggests that the company is also ready to continue the wall around its product park. If you like broad scenes, you have to find them with another vendor.
