The New York Times put out its review of the iPhone 7 on September 13th. While admitting that the new iPhone is rather pricey at $650 ($810 with the wireless headphones), the New York Times’ review was generally a positive one. The review calls the wireless ear buds “more intimate than using either standard earbuds or wireless headphones, a direct and full relationship to your music.” Other positive aspects of this review include: faster processor, longer battery life, and the possibility for more software.
Many have criticized Apple for its high-priced new phone with a lack of innovation. The internet is full of videos and memes lampooning them (eg: this video from YouTube channel College Humor). Because of this, it is refreshing to see a more unbiased view of the topic. Satire is funny, yes, and it is important to point out that this phone may be just another cash-grab from a company with a cult like following; however, it is just as important to get the facts on the product, and let the person shelling out the $650-810 make the judgment call on what’s innovative and what’s useless.
