根据多个社交账号<accounts>的消息, iPhone 7已经尘埃落定(for better or worse),针对九月份的大发布会的量产计划已经在进行。但是新的泄密信息暴露了一些最后的升级—— 这些升级由内到外。

让我们一点点来剖析:

  1. 《Back To Black》(注:AC/DC乐队的一首知名摇滚乐)

第一个简单但振奋人心的消息是 Apple AAPL +0.35% 决定提供iPhone 7 太空黑<Space Black>版本。一个披露信息很勤快的日本网站MacOtakara 和另一个消息更可靠的9to5Mac网站各自引用了不同来源,认可了这个消息。这是Apple自2013年发布iPhone 5S以来,第一次使用这样的表面处理工艺。

鉴于苹果公司打算在iPhone7中保留所有现有iPhone6S的表面材料——土豪金,玫瑰金,银色,太空黑,所以既不需要花任何额外成本,也很安全保险,会有好结果的。

       2. 64GB再见了

除了上述一点, leak goldmine(微博)透露了苹果公司将不会生产64GB储存空间的iPhone 7和iPhone 7 Plus。

表面上这是件坏事,但实际上这让苹果公司可以升级iPhone 7和iPhone 7 Plus的储存空间为新的入门级(也是很受欢迎的级别)32GB,再然后是128GB的中等级别,最高级别是256GB。

This move would be widely applauded as Apple has been rightly criticised by many (including myself) for sticking to the 16GB tier for so long on such a premium range. Meanwhile the jump to 128GB retains Apple’s love of upsell with the $100 more expensive middle tier long being the sweet spot for most buyers.

The Importance Of Hidden Gems

As welcome as both these leaks are, I suspect there will be a steady stream of additional ‘small surprises’ between now and September.

Why? Because word is already out that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus look just like the iPhone 6/6S and iPhone 6 Plus/6S Plus – the third year Apple won’t have made visual changes to its iPhones and the first time this has happened since the first iPhone in 2007. The models will also controversially drop the headphone jack.

This all makes for a tough sell, especially with the 2017 iPhone 8 (yes, Apple will skip the ‘7S’) looking set to be aradical and exciting reinvention. So expect regular splashes of good news to ‘magically’ appear over the coming weeks in an attempt to change the narrative of ‘same old, same old. Especially with Galaxy Note 7 leaks wowing crowds.

Now the big hope is that Apple can step up and the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are every bit as good as they will need to be
