Why Will the iPhone 7S Disappoint?

According to new information from Mac Otakara citing a Taiwan supplier, these 2017 iPhones will disappoint users because Apple will simply release the iPhone 7S and the iPhone 7S Plus and not the iPhone 8. If this is true, then Apple would again be distributing the same iOS smartphone over and over again with the same design as last time. This means that the core design of the iPhone 7 and 7S will not change.

The iPhone 7S will have a bigger screen size from 4.7 to 5-inches. The screen will only be increased in size which will align with the leading Android rivals such as the Samsung S7 edge. This would not be good for consumers who prefer using smaller smartphones.

The Good News

The iPhone 7 and 7S Plus will have dual cameras that are arranged vertically rather than horizontally just like in the iPhone 7 Plus. In the current iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, the second camera is used as a 2x optical zoom and for a portrait mode.

Dual cameras on the iPhones is a step up for Apple. Dual modes are used to capture a similar photo at different light exposure in order to heighten image quality.


There is still a speculation that both models may be released in addition to the iPhone 8. If this happens, then the customers will be given three choices for the iPhone they want to get.

The iPhone sales have been declining recently. Thus, it would be logical to release three types of iPhone in order to hype up the sales. Apple has a good marketing strategy. They will not change the current prices of the iPhone 7S which has a similar design as the older models and sell it while they introduce a new and more expensive model.

Mac Otakara claims Apple won’t finalize the specifications for the iPhone 7S until April of next year, so the release date will follow.
