iPhone


Rene Ritchie along with Serenity Caldwell, has put together a quick video review of the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.

When Serenity Caldwell and I took a look at how we wanted to shoot our iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus review video, we new we couldn't just spout the specs in a room or street set. We had to take to the streets. So, we took the iPhones 7 out and shot with the new wide angle and telephoto cameras, tested the new water resistance, abused the better battery efficiency, tried out the new Home button, and otherwise put them both through their paces and then some — on the streets of New York City!

I don't really ever get around to reading long reviews, so this video was perfect.

If there's one iPhone review you're going to watch, make sure it's this one. Either watch it below, or follow this link to YouTube.

Just so I can have it "in writing" if they turn out to be correct.

As I mentioned on Twitter, the dates for the next iPhone (probably iPhone 7):

  • Announcement: 7th September
  • Pre-Order: 9th September
  • Launch: 16th September
  • Launch: 16th/23rd September (Updated: 20th August)

9To5Mac have shared a few 3D renders of what a potential iPhone 7 would look like in Space Black. This comes after the previous rumours about a Deep Blue colour being added, but the same source has since reported that it was mistaken for a darker grey/black option.

The renders show an iPhone 7 in a dark, Space Black colour option. The antenna lines have also been redesigned in the renders, as has been rumoured will happen, while the camera module is also larger.

I absolutely love the idea of having at least a near-black iPhone again, Space Grey just isn't dark enough for me. It also adds more reason for a dark theme in iOS!

I also wish that this Space Black colour (if it would be called that), be added to their range of MacBooks, as I'm a strong admirer of the BlackBook.

The renders were done by Martin Hajek, and you can find loads more on his blog.
