Apple iPhone 7: New Features I Like

NewerTech NuGuard KX case for iPhone 7 and 7 Plus

Get NewerTech NuGuard KX Case for iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus at MacSales.com.

The whole blogosphere is alight with iPhone 7 stuff, so I’m going to focus on what is of interest to me personally.

  • Dual cameras: when shooting iPhone panoramas, a longer focal length is hugely helpful for image quality (when not so wide a field of view is needed). Ditto for closeups without the problems of perspective distortion or shadows that come from getting too close to the subject. Too bad Apple did not include an infrared camera option.
  • Wide Color support: vast improvement with the P3 color gamut. Better images taken, and better display of those images. See iPhone 7 Sports Retina HD Screen with DCI-P3 Color Gamut and “Wide” Color Capture
  • More powerful speakers: I listen to audiobooks for hours when driving to the mountains for trips, and the iPhone 6s Plus speaker has been barely adequate in my car while driving (older car has no USB connector and the FM transmitter dongle often gets interference).
  • Splash and water resistance: well, see the trout below for an idea of where (besides a toilet or a cup of coffee) that liquid could be an issue. Still, it’s one reason the much superior grip of the Nuguard KX case comes in so handy.
  • Barometer: I’m hoping this means that a barometric altimeter app is included (GPS is notoriously poor for altitude). UPDATE: heck even the iPhone 6s Plus has a barometer, a carefully hidden feature (why can’t it show up on the lock screen?).

A longer focal length lens will be very helpful when making closeup shots like this image of a Brook Trout. The trout appears to bow outwards with a too-small tail and head; this is partly due to the close-range of the camera to the subject aka “perspective distortion”.
