I’m sure that many of you are asking yourself this question right now. You have the Iphone 6 or 6s models and are wondering if upgrading to the iPhone 7 is even worth it.
Well, there a couple of ways to look at it:
If you were on a 24 month iPhone contract which just expired, you may as well Upgrade to the iPhone 7.
The base storage for the iPhone 7 has now been upgraded to 32 GB, with the 128 GB and 256 GB also available. So, if you are looking to upgrade from the 16 GB model, now would be a great time.
The iPhone 7 still has a 12MP Camera like it’s predecessor, however, Apple has made some major improvements. The camera now has an aperture of f/1.8, meaning that the camera can let in a lot more light to improve image quality. The iPhone 7 Plus on the other hand has a dual camera sensor which allows for even more possibilities.
As with every other iPhone model, the iPhone 7 has been released with a new, faster chip. This years chip is known as the A10. It’s certainly fast, with benchmarking results putting it on par with the iPad Pro models, but do you feel you are struggling with your iPhone 6 or 6s models?
The iPhone 7 is now also waterproof and I can see this as a feature that people may upgrade for. For me personally, it doesn’t matter as much since I haven’t encountered a situation where I dropped water on my phone or my phone in water.
Removal of the headphone jack:
This sounds more like a reason to not upgrade to the iPhone 7. Apple has gone ahead and removed the headphone jack as they embrace the future of wireless technology. The question is, do you?
There are also other improvements such as stereo speakers and improvements to the color gamut of the screen. However, the ones mentioned above would be some of the key reasons for upgrading to the iPhone 7.
It’s always important to note that the decision will always come down to your needs. If you have a 128 GB iPhone 6s, are the improvements to the camera and waterproofing enough reason to upgrade to the iPhone 7? Maybe they are.
