The Magic Of Technology Is Here To Engross Us All

reignofappleSo, September has started and if there is one thing everyone in the world gets excited for, is the Apple’s annual iPhone upgradation. September 7 was a key moment in Apple’s history and to be honest, it felt like a key moment for the rest of the world. As many would believe, Apple changed the world this month.

Before I start telling about all the qualities about the new refreshed iPhone, I want everyone to go back to that day when you were told that there was no magic in the world. Take note of that moment and remember how hard your beliefs and dreams crashed, how people made fun of you because you were too dreamy or immersed in your lala land. Just look at that memory squarely in the eye, and say, I have always believed in magic and because of Tim Cook it has come back to awaken me from the slumber of no dreams and hope.

You must stop and really think about the global power Tim Cook has reached out to and change people’s lives through a few sheets of glass and silicon, and some technology.

It all started with a bang, when Tim Cook carpooled his way to the launch with Pharell Williams and James Corden at his side. The launch event was the largest peak video traffic event in its history. At a launch event in San Francisco, the company revealed an upgraded iPhone that while aesthetically similar to the iPhone 6s and 6s plus, has several big differences, several of them.

The new iPhone 7 and 7 plus comes with pressure-sensitive home button, better camera, a faster processor and improved battery life, as well as having no headphone jack. It also comes in a new range of colors, colors that will indeed blow your mind away, because they are black, black to the core. They have a starting size of 32GB, going up to 256GB.

Instead of the traditional headphone connection, iPhone packages will now come with earphones that fit into the phone’s Lightning port, currently used for charging and data transfer. They are called Air Pods (wireless), and are wonderful little creation, saving you from the daily hassles of untangling the wires. Infrared sensors detect when each pod is in your ear and motion sensors control the headphones to use Siri and detect your voice. The Air Pods provide five hours of listening which, with the compact charging case, delivers 24 hours of total battery life. The pods can connect to Apple watches, laptops and iPads

Both the phones are water and dust resistance, making it easier to snap from under the water, with its unbelievable camera of 12 megapixels. The bigger Plus model has an even-more powerful dual-lens camera, enough to entice anyone. The camera has been revamped to enhance low-light capabilities and take even sharper photos.

The models will have the longest battery life ever in an iPhone. An iPhone 7 lasts, on average, two hours longer than an iPhone 6s and an hour longer than iPhone 6s Plus. The model will be powered by a new Apple A10 Fusion which has a 64-bit 4 core CPU.

The pricing for iPhone 7 begins at Rs.60,000. As far as the rates for iPhone 7 plus is considered, Apple is yet to make a formal announcement.

The beauty of the phone is such that someone like me, who isn’t a bit technically inclined want to buy that phone. The phone pans itself out like a beautiful dream, a dream that makes everyone want to have a share in it. It is beautiful, magnificent, and despite its dreamy character, it is attainable.
