The New iPhone 7

Posted on May 19, 2017

Well, my upgrade from iPhone 6s to iPhone 7 was remarkably straightforward, without the standard frustration and adrenalin rush that comes from being asked for passwords you had no idea you had ever created. Normally, these are something easy to remember, like B0b@l3th@bY-Re@d1ngFc followed by the surname of a second cousin’s pet hamster.

I had to reset my password on Sage accounts the other day and on virtually every attempt I was told I was not being complex enough with my thought process. Of course, once I came up with enough ingenuity to create one that worked, I had already assumed it wouldn’t, so I promptly forgot it.

I then rang the Sage helpline that had no fewer than 9 options, none of which were relevant to my desperation. However, in fairness, they did have three options for the type of music I would like to hear as I waited for 15 minutes only to be told I needed call Sage 50 Accounts, not Sage One Accounts.

It was a right laugh.

Anyway, one of the most impressive and exciting features on the iPhone 7 is that, unless I am missing something, it is exactly the same phone as the iPhone 6s. All the features are the same except that they have moved the camera lens about half a centimetre, giving just enough room so your iPhone 6s protective case won’t fit on it, rendering it useless.

The iPhone 6s and the iPhone 7

This was a free upgrade (I know, it’s not really free) as part of my package, so I don’t really care to be honest. However, I have to say that if I was technology faddist who had forked out £500 plus, I would be a little bit annoyed as at one point, I honestly did get the old and the new mixed up as I was changing SIM cards over.

These Apple marketing folk are very clever, because as I recall, during the iPhone 7 party launch party, they had the audience on the verge of public masturbation as they struggled to cope with the biblical news the Apple Messiah was delivering them from a dystopian looking conference room.

When I looked up the reviews to see if I was missing a trick I noticed a sentence that said, “The one disappointment with the iPhone 7 is that because it is so similar to the 6s, you won’t be able to show off to your friends.”

I would suggest that if you are the type of person who wants to show off a phone, or indeed, you are the type of person who is impressed by a friend who is showing of a mobile phone, you need you seriously consider getting out more.

Strange times.
