iPhone 7 may not feature drastic changes

Tech Industry
Hey, so were you expecting a whole new design for the iPhone? Well expect to be disappointed. A new report from Japanese newspaper Nikkei says Apple will likely make big changes to the iPhone design Every three years back instead of every other year which we're currently used to. That means the upcoming iPhone 7 will likely look just like the iPhone 6 and 6S. The report puts the blame on a slowing market, and the notion that there's just not enough to enhance upon these days. There will likely be small changes like a better camera and perhaps the removal of the headphone jack, so you'll have to connect your headphones with a lightning port or wirelessly? I don't wanna do that! If the next big change comes in 2017, that would actually be a good time for Apple to make a big fuss because, after all, 2017 marks the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. We're all very old, even if the dimensions don't change much there could be one upgrade that might get buyers excited. One analytics research group is reporting that the iPhone 7 Will come with 32 GB of storage at the entry model, and that's instead of 16 GB, which it absolutely already should do. Apple has long been criticized for offering iPhones with a measly 16 GB, when all these better photos and videos and apps are eating up the storage way too quickly. Most top smartphones don't even bother to ship with sixteen gigs anymore. Why does the iPhone even have even have that as an option? The voice assistant siri may be getting a huge boost soon, last year Apple purchased. First a company called Vocal IQ and Tech Insider reports that the technology has more potential to answer questions with normal language compared to what exists with Google now, Microsoft's Cortana and Amazon's Alexia. Speaking of Voice assistance, If you ever wanted to know what it was like to talk to Amazon's Alexia now you can through a web browser. Amazon released the Echo simulator. At the website, Echoism. IO, but it doesnt work yet with Safari. So, I'm going to try this out right here. [BEEP] Hey, Alex., Who is Jeff Bakalar? >. I was not able to understand the question I heard. Neither am I. [BLANK_AUDIO] That's it for this tech news update, I'm Jeff Bakalar. And you can stay on top of the biggest stories at CNET.COM/UPDATE. [MUSIC]
