New iPhone 7s release date rumors UK: Donald Trump ‘pressuring Apple to build iPhone 7s in the US’
Going through his recent Presidential campaign, Donald Trump complained about Apple;s offshore manufacturing operations and bragged that he would urge the company to build its next iPhoes in the US he also stated that company would employ Americans in the process of manufacturing iPhones in the US.Now, as president-elect, he’s trying to make his promises a reality.
Speaking to the New York Times, Trump described a call he had with Tim Cook about the issue and appeared to think he had been extremely persuasive.
I got a call from Tim Cook at Apple, and I said, ‘Tim, you know one of the things that will be a real achievement for me is when I get Apple to build a big plant in the United States, or many big plants in the United States, where instead of going to China, and going to Vietnam, and going to the places that you go to, you’re making your product right here.’ He said, ‘I understand that.
In reply to the Donal Trump’s statement Apple’s CEO says,”There are certain reasons due to them Apple manufactures its iPhones in Asia, Labour costs are lower and relevant skills are more plentiful which urges the company to manufacture its products in Asia”.But Trump thinks he can sweeten the deal with tax cuts and changes to regulations.
I said: ‘I think we’ll create the incentives for you, and I think you’re going to do it. We’re going for a very large tax cut for corporations, which you’ll be happy about.
What Trump does not claim is that Cook actually agreed to any of this, even in principle. And Tim Cook doesn’t strike us as someone who could easily be cowed into taking a course of action that isn’t in the best interests of Apple and its shareholders.
New iPhone 7s release date rumors UK: Name
Apple habitually follows what’s known as a ‘tick-tock’ launch cycle with itsiPhoness. One year it will launch a full-number improve, presenting a significant physical redesign iPhone 4,iPhonee 5, iPhone 6; Then the next year it will launch an ‘S’ upgrade which has the equal physical design as its predecessor but adds new functions and spec boosts (iPhone 4s, iPhone 5s, iphone 6s). for this reason, many apple fanatics pick to upgrade their telephones once every two years.
For the reason that the iPhone 7 regarded in 2016, the obvious conclusion is that apple will unveil an iPhone 7s (and accompanying iPhone 7s plus) in autumn 2017. However, there had been increasingly huge murmurs that it is approximately time for apple to retire its tick-tock cycle, which depreciates the significance of its s releases and discourages ordinary updates.
what’s more, 2017 is the iPhone’s tenth-anniversary 12 months, and the iPhone 7 had a fairly comparable physical layout to the iPhone 6 and 6s (headphone port aside). For these reasons, pretty some of us suspect that apple will cross all-out with a blockbuster release, branded as the iPhone 8, next year.
indeed, a little extra weight became brought to the ‘iPhone 8 in 2017’ concept in early October 2016. business insider reviews that an apple worker in Israel who solders additives spoke to them about the subsequent iPhone and referred to it as the iPhone 8 “unprompted in our conversation”.
New iPhone 7s release date rumors UK: Design
what physical modifications are we able to count on in the iPhone 7s? logically, an s upgrade could imply a lack of a physical remodel, but apple has saved in large part the same chassiiPhones iPhones in a row now and we would be greatly surprised if the business enterprise does not pull a few type of primary revamp out of the bag.
New iPhone 7s release date rumors UK: No more Home button
Some while back Piper Jaffrey analyst Gene Munster suggested the iPhone 7 wouldn’t have a Home button, reasoning that the new 3D Touch technology introduced with the iPhone 6s could largely take its place and allow Apple to use the space to make the screen bigger or the device smaller. (A corollary of Munster’s theory is that the Touch ID fingerprint scanner would need to move – perhaps being built into the screen itself.)
Munster’s hypothesis about the iPhone 7 did not show to be real – certainly, Munster has made a few famously misjudged predictions in the beyond, at the side of some first-rate calls – but may additionally yet manifest at the iPhone 7s.
Technology that could help with this development was recently announced by a biometric R&D company, Sonavation. Its tech would enable Apple to run the screen vertically edge-to-edge, with no cutout for the Home button.
The home button may want to occupy the same function, however, seem best when wished, just like the software program keyboard; and the era for contact identification would be bonded to the bottom of the display screen at the ideal point.
Last year Apple filed a patent that seems relevant to this concept. Patent application number 20150036065, for “a fingerprint sensor… incorporated in a display stack in an electronic device”, was filed in April 2014 and published recently. Here are some of the illustrations:
(The illustration in Fig. 1 above appears to show an iPhone that still has a Home button, and therefore doesn’t increase the amount of screen area – what would be the point of that, you might wonder. But remember that this is to illustrate the concept itself, not to show what it would look like in practice or the way other elements of the product would change to adapt to it.)
What’s more, Apple has been granted another patent that also refers to a fingerprint sensor that can work through a screen.
Patent 9,460,332 describes a “Capacitive fingerprint sensor including an electrostatic lens”: more pertinently to this discussion, it states that “one or more other device components, such as a display stack and/or a touchscreen may be interposed between the contact surface of dielectric structure 202 and array 206 of capacitive sensing elements.
New iPhone 7s release date rumors UK: Glass front and back
9to5Mac cites a report, from the generally reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, that predicts – based on the popularity of the (scratch-prone) Jet Black iPhone 7 – that the next iPhone will have a glass front and back that mimic that device’s glossy looks but are better able to resist scratch damage.
If Apple does follow through with what KGI suggests,” the site predicts, “an all-glass design could extend the glossy finish to all colours of the iPhone lineup depending on how Apple handles the design.
iPhone 7s release date rumors UK: Colour options
The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are available in five color options: silver, gold, Rose Gold (pink), (matt) black and Jet Black. The iPhone 7s will probably be available in the same colors, but it’s believed that there will be a sixth red option as well.
The (generally pretty reliable) Japanese-language site Macotakara has posted a report that cites a source in the Taiwanese supply chain and says it is highly probably red will be added to the color line-up.
(A slight complication here is that Apple has historically made red products as part of the Product Red HIV/AIDS charity, rather than as a cosmetic preference. Macotakara doesn’t comment on whether this will be tied in with that charity.)

Before the launch of the iPhone 7 there were rumors about a Deep Blue color option, but we’ve not heard much about that since then.
New iPhone 7s release date rumors UK: New features
Experts are increasingly searching ahead to 2017 for a huge iPhone release. making predictions about the upcoming performance of apple stock, analysts at credit score Suisse forecast that the 10th-anniversary iPhone released in 2017 (which they predict could be known as iPhone eight in reputation of its principal updates, incidentally) will feature “significant innovations” together with a complete glass OLED screen, new and upgraded haptic feedback capabilities, wi-fi charging and numerous primary specifications enhancements along with the digicam and processor.
Here are some more features we could see in the iPhone 7s.
New iPhone 7s release date rumors UK: Wireless charging
Wireless charging didn’t arrive with the iPhone 7 as some had predicted (it has also been predicted for previous iPhone models stretching back some years), but was introduced to the Apple Watch in the form of inductive charging… and this is significant.
As iMore’s Rene Ritchie points out, inductive charging hasn’t been practical for the iPhone in previous years because the technology available at the time didn’t work through an aluminum backplate – but the Apple Watch can offer wireless charging because it has a ceramic back.
In July 2015 Qualcomm announced a wireless charging breakthrough that does work through metal. This came too late for the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, but the technology may appear in the 7s generation.
Foxconn, a massive iPhone manufacturer, is reported to be trying out wireless charging modules in an effort to be included in a few or all the 2017 iPhones. (apple loves to have at least one major feature that sets the plus model aside, and so it makes a certain feel to restrict this to the huge model simplest.) the questions at this factor relate to yield price and profitability: Foxconn is exploring the practicality of manufacturing large batches of the component to an exceptional trendy.
In November 2016, KGI securities analyst Ming-chi Kuo expected in a record that apple will indeed carry wi-fi charging talents to the fall 2017 iPhone handsets, way to the all-glass layout, however, warned that the company may additionally bundle the wireless charger with greater steeply-priced models handiest. the firm envisions a wi-fi pad for charging the phones, somewhat like the inductive charger that comes with the various apple watch fashions.
possibly the iPhone 7s plus will provide wireless charging out of the field, at the same time as iPhone 7s consumers will need to purchase the charging pad one by one (in this situation, obviously the telephones could want to be chargeable via conventional means too); or it is probably the lower garage capability units that miss out at the bundled wi-fi charger. that is every other accessory to put on your shopping list, then.
Businessinsider offers a little more detail from Ming-chi Kuo’s report on wi-fi charging; one component it mentions – which seems to contradict in advance rumors that Foxconn became leading the manner in this location – is that Pegatron may be the distinctive dealer of this thing.
Augmented reality and VR
According to a source cited by Business Insider (described only as “a person familiar with the matter”), Apple is currently working on a new augmented reality feature for the 2017 iPhone update.
By adding AR technology into the iPhone’s camera software, Apple wants consumers to be able to point the phone at a real-world object and have it be recognised,” said the site. “Another early feature for Apple’s AR integration into the camera app could be to recognise and manipulate people’s faces.
This suits with in advance predictions raised in a miles-ranging and captivating Facebook submit by Robert Scoble which discussed the manner VR and augmented fact will determine in Apple’s upcoming iPhones. “surely superb VR/AR/blended reality is coming… and coming by means of the stop of 2017,” Scoble writes. “apple’s entrance into this new international is like whilst IBM got here into the non-public computing international. it’s far that critical.”
He discusses the effect that a blended-reality iphone ought to have in the marketplace, and predicts that users will “pop [the new iPhone] right into a headset which has eye sensors on it, which enables the next iphone to have a higher obvious body fee and polygon remember than a computer with a nvidia 1080 card in it… the clear iphone will positioned holograms on pinnacle of the actual international like Microsoft Hololens does.
