We’ve Got the iPhone 6, Now Give Us the 7


Just one year ago, experts and analysts were wondering if the iPhone’s days as the top smart phone were numbered. The iPhone 5C and 5S releases went largely unnoticed—or, at the very least, they garnered limited fanfare compared to previous releases.

It Turned Out Larger Was Better

But things seemed to have changed drastically with the release of the larger iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6+, two devices that broke with iPhone tradition and offered users what they’ve been looking for, large screens. Now, Apple has released sales data that shows the iPhone 6 and 6+ models have toppled previous sales records.

While the news about Apple’s triumph are still fresh, experts and enthusiasts have begun dreaming about the next iPhone release. If history is bound to repeat itself, users may see an S model by September of 2015. The iPhone 7 release, however, is still well over a year away. Enthusiasts have begun speculating on that, as well.

So, what exactly will that upgrade include?

With Apple, the Sky’s the Limit

Many enthusiasts are hoping to see a wrap around screen, a concept that Samsung has been working on for some time. This seems unlikely, according to experts, and such a feature will probably be reserved for the iPhone 7.

Experts predict users are more likely to get a faster processor and more ram. Many believe the next iPhone will include the A9 chip, which is supposedly lightning fast and should handle just about any phone-based game. The phone is also likely to be upgraded to 2GB of ram to better handle multitasking.

Screen sizes are likely to remain the same for now—but most agree that the screen sizes for the S models needn’t be changed. The upgrade from the 5, 5C and 5S screens was monumental for the company that had bucked the larger screen trend for several years, and they are likely to stick with the 4.7 and 5.5-inch screens that have brought such unwavering success this year.

Get Ready for Apple Trade-Ins

The recommerce sector is likely to benefit from the rising popularity of iPhone devices, especially if an S model is released this coming fall. With the popularity of the 6 and 6+, many users may be looking to get into the iPhone market, as users upgrade to the newest model and forsake their beloved iPhone 6 and 6+.
