Apple’s iPhone 7 Isn’t Perfect

Compare Guru
2016-09-23
With so much attention around the launch of the iPhone 7, we take a look at some of the complaints that have been made in light of this.
Every year, Apple releases a new iPhone. And, every year, people line up for hours to get their hands on the shiny new device. The other thing that happens, every year, when the new iPhone comes out? The list of complaints about the new handset.

Here’s What People Are Saying About the iPhone 7 & 7 Plus

Jet Black Colour

The brand new jet black colour (only available in the higher end 128GB and 256GB versions of both handsets) have sold out faster than any other colour. It has, however, left quite a few people upset. Those who were fortunate enough to get their hands on a jet black iPhone have discovered that its shiny design is prone to scuffs, scratches and smudges. Basically, it’s a fingerprint and dirt magnet. You’ll need to get a case on it ASAP. Although that still doesn’t guarantee that it will be protected from getting dirty. mobiledeals_article_banner

3.5mm Headphone Jack

Apple has famously (or infamously) decided to remove the 3.5mm headphone jack from the new iPhones. Something which has upset thousands of people. What makes it even more annoying is that you can no longer listen to music while charging your phone (apparently that’s a thing). Apple has included a pair of lightning adapter EarPods in the box along with a lighting adapter which allows you to plug in your 3.5mm headphones. But, let’s be honest, do you really want to have to connect an adapter to your iPhone in order to be able to listen to music AND charge your device at the same time? The new lightning adapter EarPods appear to have a few control issues. According to a number of users, the volume controls and action button on the new lighting EarPods stop working after being plugged in. Some people have said that unplugging them and then plugging them back in appears to resolve the issue. Yet, this isn't the case for everyone experiencing this problem. Apple has acknowledged the problem and stated that a fix will be coming soon in the form of an iOS 10 update.

Hissgate

Does Siri speak Parseltounge now? Who knows, but iPhone 7 Plus users have reported that the handset emits a low hissing sound while in use. There does not appear to be any word as to how many people are being affected by this, but it is a strange one. The sound doesn’t seem to be audible at a distance but some people have said that the hissing sound increases when the phone is operating under heavy pressure. For example, when the processors are performing under intense strain.

New Home Button

It might not look like it, but both the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have a new home button. Apple has ditched the physical home button in favour of a capacitive, 3D touch home button. Many people are complaining that they don’t like the new home button because it doesn’t work when you’re wearing gloves. Also, you now have to actually press the button instead of just touching it and letting TouchID work its phone-unlocking magic. Are you considering getting the new iPhone 7 or 7 Plus when it launches in South Africa? Let us know in the comments section below.
