Seven predictions for the new iPhone 7

Apple's iPhone 7 is expected to launch this evening and the world awaits to see the design and feature upgrades that will come with it.

Expert and Technobyte presenter, Aki Anastasiou predicts the following seven changes:

  • better camera quality (to operate in low-light conditions).

  • faster device chip with more efficient operating sysytem.

  • the removal of headphone jack to be replaced with wireless earphones and adapter.

  • improved sound system.

  • thinner, sleeker-looking device with moved antennas.

  • better screen durability.

  • water-resistant casing.

They're saying it can withstand splashes and you can be submerged with it in water for 30 minutes - which is enough for you to shower.

Anastasiou explains that Apple has reported a decline in iPhone sales and will have to make drastic changes to regain loyal users.
