The iPhone 7 marks the 10th generation of the iPhone. It is nearly 10 years since the first iPhone was introduced in 2007 and they have always been regarded as the benchmark for the smartphone industry.
When it comes to launches, Malaysia is often late to the party, but the new iPhone 7 is probably the earliest we’ve seen so far. Instead of waiting for months, it’s finally coming to our shores on 14th October.
Jumping from the 6s to the 7, the new iPhone was supposed to be an all-new device. Instead, we get a phone that’s identical to last year with some incremental updates on the inside. In a way, it feels like a third variant of the current iPhone 6 series.
The exterior dimensions for the iPhone 7/7 Plus are exactly the same as the model it replaces. The only visible changes are the reduced antenna band lines and the increased camera bump. It’s hard to tell them apart if you put both models side by side facing up. To really stand out from the iPhone 6/6s crowd, there are two new colours – Black and Jet Black. Assuming Apple is releasing an iPhone 7s, that’s four years with the same design.
