Will the iPhone 7S Live Up to the Hype?

Jes Ngo

There have been countless rumours and leaks about the iPhone 7S and information of the long-awaited iPhone is being leaked like crazy. Some of the hottest leaks concerning the iPhone 7S are:

  • True Color
  • Wireless charging
  • Iris scanner
  • Facial recognition

So far, it seems that a True Colour screen will most likely be included for the iPhone 7S, along with the iPhone 7S Plus and the iPhone 8. True Colour will severely improve the iPhone 7S’ display, the “full spectral sensing” ambient light sensor giving the iPhone 7S a True Colour screen through the use of a four-channel ambient light sensor. Also seen in the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, this gives the iPhone 7S’ display the ability to adapt its screen to changes in lighting and temperature according to the phone's location, therefore giving you an optimal display no matter the lighting.

Wireless charging is pretty self-explanatory and always highly anticipated. But for the iPhone 7S, it’s still purely hypothetical, likewise for the possible inclusions of an iris scanner and facial recognition software.

In any case, everyone is still impatient for the release of the iPhone 7S, which is currently rumoured to be released sometime in September. However, the internet is rife with rumours that there might not even be an “S” variant this year, considering that Apple aims to release the iPhone 8 in 2017 for the sake of Apple’s ten-year anniversary. Some are saying this is absurd, while others consider it a real possibility.

Apple has always managed to impress us with their consistent releasing of newer and better versions of the iPhone, but after the stilted reaction to the release of the iPhone 7 and the fact that 2017 is an important year for Apple, the pressure is on for Apple to make an iPhone that manages to both impress the people and fulfil their expectations.
