The AirPods of iphone 7
You could, of course, try the new Apple AirPods (if they ever launch), which have been developed on a new wireless standard. A quick Public Service Announcement: you DO NOT need to buy these to get audio on the iPhone 7 iphone 6 cases uk amazon.
Three separate people have told us that that’s what they thought was the case when Apple launched them – that’s something the brand needs to clarify soon.
There’s also another reason not to buy them in 2017 when it’s believed they’ll be aviailable: they’re incredibly expensive at $159 / £159 / AU$229, and all they really do is cut the wire from the EarPods you get in the box.
The sound quality doesn’t feel like it’s much better, and while the ability to tap one pod to activate Siri, or remove a Pod and have the sound instantly stop, is cool, it’s not really worth the cash.
Plus, there’s also the fact that they don’t look the most elegant in the ears – and if you struggle with the fit of the EarPods, these things are going to fall out all the time.
They do have a lot of charge, come with a cool magnetic carry case (which also adds 24 hours of charge, to the point where we’ve not even come close to running ours down during the review) and free you from the wires… but these feel more like reference designs for future wireless Apple devices than the must-have iPhone accessory.
The overall design of the iPhone 7 is actually rather impressive when you consider some of the changes that have taken place. The waterproofing always add thickness, as the seals will need some space within the device.
The new dual speakers, which fire out of the earpiece and the bottom of the phone, also needed somewhere to go, which starts to explain why the iPhone 7 is 7.1mm thick… the same as the iPhone 6S, and 0.2mm more than www.nike.com the Nike phone case iPhone 6.
Perhaps it’s something to do with the fact that these features aren’t the first of their kind to market, but there’s something unexciting about the iPhone 7 being waterproof. It’s been done already by Sony on the Xperia Z and Samsung on the Galaxy S7, and those phones combined impressive design with the reassurance that you could sling them in a lake and still have a working phone.
It’s a really nice feature to have, and to iPhone users it’ll be a complete novelty – although they’ll be aware that many Android-toting pals will have had the feature for a while. But it’s a necessary move from Apple iphone 6 cases amazon, and it’s good to see.
