We are hearing a lot of rumors about the iPhone 7 what how will it look and what new features it will have. Traditionally Apple has launched iPhone in September every year. We have also heard that iPhone 7 will not change its design, rather will stick to design of its predecessor i.e. iPhone 6s, but it will redesigned antenna lines, front and rear cameras and they will be ditching 3.5mm headphone jack!
Evan blass who is a prominent leaker has always given the right information about the launch dates of a device, said that the next iPhone which will be known as iPhone 7 will be launched on September 12; then again he tweeted that Apple will launch this device on 16th September.
Earlier the iPhone 7 was expected to be launched in three variants:
-iPhone 7 Plus
-iPhone 7 Pro
But another news came that iPhone will be launched in 2 variants only. It is also stated that the iPhone will say goodbye to 16gb model and the 32gb will be their base variant. So the iPhone 7 will come with 32gb, 128gb and 256gb model.
It is also said that the new models will come up with bigger battery and a new Apple A10 processor which will give the users a seamless experience. The home button will also have force touch capabilities. With Apple saying goodbye to the 3.5mm headphone jack, the phone is expected to be 1mm slimmer than its predecessor. There is also another rumor that this time Apple will no longer be using the LG’s IPS LCD panel but instead they will be using the OLED which is superior to the LCD panel in terms display clarity but also it is energy efficient.
Apple has not revealed any details about the device and has remained silent on when the next iPhone will be launched. Its just the rumors and leaks which made everyone believe that the company is working on the iPhone 7. There are also pictures of iPhone 7 which compares it with iPhone 6s which claims that the iPhone will have a slightly redesigned body.
The iPhone 7 is expected to come with preinstalled iOS 10 and with new features such as:
iPhone 6s and 6s Plus did sell considerably well last year but their share of sales dropped compared to its predecessor iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. customers continued to use their year old iphone 6 and 6 Plus or even they did stick to their two year old iPhone 5S. Apple will be willing to improve its sales as compared to last year. We have to wait till 16th September when Apple officially announces the phone and its new features.
Stay tuned to AppInventiv for the latest updates about iPhone.
Know the difference between hybrid apps and native apps, and which one is most suitable for your mobile app needs.
Hybrid Mobile Apps
A Hybrid mobile app is an app which is installed on your device natively and coded with web technologies like HTML, CSS etc. This type of app uses Webview to run. A Webview can be defined as a chromeless browser with is bundled with a mobile app.
Hybrid mobile apps have a feel of a native app to them. The hybrid apps can interact with native device functions such as geo-location, cameras etc. Any bugs found in accessing these native features can be solved using Cordova plugins.
The strengths of Hybrid
1. It is fully cross-platform- You have to write code once and build it for Android, iOS and Windows Phone.
2. Reuse the code- The Code of a webpage which already exists can be used to transform it into an app for mobiles.
4. Very less time and cost required- Due to its many advantages, a mobile app can be finished relatively quickly.
The weaknesses of Hybrid
1. Issues in performance- The performance is fairly limited as these apps run in a Webview.
2. Behavioral issues- Additional tweaks might be required along with some optimization to the code because of the differing form of Webviews from platform to platform.
3. Slow adaptation to the updated versions of the platform- Whenever a new version of the mobile platform comes in the market, you will be needed to wait a few additional months as Cordova first needs to come up with a verified support for this new version.
Native Mobile Apps
Native mobile apps are those apps which run on your device natively with true native UI elements. Unlike the hybrid apps, native apps don’t run on Webview, meaning the performance isn’t sacrificed.
Like the hybrid, it lets the user utilize their web skills while also providing an engaging experience with add-ons like Telerik UI.
The strengths of Native:
1. It is fully cross-platform- Just like a hybrid, the apps which are created with Nativescript will run on both Android and iOS with just one codebase.
4. Immediate support for new versions- Unlike a hybrid, whenever a new mobile OS version is launched, NativeScript provides the support for this new version immediately.
The weaknesses of Native:
2. Not so smooth learning curve- Whereas hybrid lets you use HTML, same is not the case with NativeScript. Only native app concepts such as native UI elements can be used for NativeScript.
