The 7 Things You Need To Know About The iPhone 7

Now that Apple has finally showed us what the iPhone 7 looks like, here's what you need to know!

On September 7th, Apple premiered their newest iPhone. There were tons of rumors and speculations going around about the iPhone 7 before it came out. Most of the speculations made by Apple fanatics were true. Just like with every iPhone, Apple has made a bigger and better iPhone that will hopefully fulfill all of our wishes. As usual, not everything was revealed in Apple's premiere of the iPhone 7. We will have to wait until the iPhone 7 is actually released before we know all the details. However, the iPhone 7 will be available for pre-order on September 9. As usual the new iPhone should be released a week after it is premiered. That means you should be able to have Apple's newest product in your hands by September 16th. All that being said, here are 7 facts you need to know about the iPhone 7!

1. It Has A Better Camera

The iPhone 7 has a new and improved camera to take better selfies with. The iPhone 7 Plus will have 2 camera lenses, one for wide-angel pictures and one for telephoto. There is also a new Quad-LED 2 Tone flash on the camera. The new flash is fifty percent brighter than the iPhone 6s camera.

2. There Are 2 New Colors

The iPhone 7 has 2 new colors available this year. Black and Jet Black. The plain black is a matte black color whereas the Jet Black has been referred to as "Piano Black". The Jet Black color blends in with the screen to make a sleek design. The iPhone 7 will still be sold in the Gold, Rose Gold and Silver colors.

3. There Is No Headphone Jack

This was possibly the biggest speculation about the new iPhone. Several people said that there would not be a headphone jack in order to make the iPhone 7 thinner, and they were right. Apple has introduced the Airpods. The Airpods are wireless headphones that let you listen to music on your iPhone 7. So what about those $200 Beats you bought? Don't worry, Apple has you covered. There will be an adapter that goes through the charging port to use actual headphones.

4. There Is Longer Battery Life

You won't have to borrow everyone else's charger... As often. Apple has once again increased the battery life of their newest phone. Due to the A10 Fusion Chip that Apple has put in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, the battery life is promised to last longer than any previous model. The iPhone 7 battery is said to last two hours longer than the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 7 Plus battery is supposed to last an hour longer than the iPhone 6 Plus.

5. The Louder, The Better

The iPhone 7 has a new speaker system that is twice as loud as the iPhone 6s. The speaker system is equipped with stereo speakers to make it louder. Not only did Apple change up the headphones, they made the iPhone 7 louder than ever before.

6. Brighter Than Before

Equipped with Retina HD display, the iPhone 7 is 25% brighter than any iPhone before it. The iPhone 7 has a 4.7 inch display with 1334 x 750 resolution, and the iPhone 7 Plus has a 5.5 inch display with 1920 x 1080 resolution. Both iPhone's have a wide color gamut, Retina HD display and 3D touch.

7. Money, Money, Money

Possibly the biggest question on everyone's mind is how much the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will cost. A 32 GB iPhone 7 will start around $649, a 128 GB will be $749 and a 256 GB will be $849. As for the iPhone 7 Plus, a 32 GB will be $749, a 128 GB $849 and a 256 GB $949.

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.

7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

It's A Beautiful Day To Ignore The Day

It's a Tuesday, late afternoon. The sun is glowing. The birds are certainly chirping and the breeze is a-blowin through the trees and the moss dangles in wisps throughout the branches. But where are you? Where am I? Where are we all? Probably inside, completely ignorant of the beauty that is happening outside our doors with or without our acknowledgment. And we're probably on our phones.

Txt Me Back

Does anyone else cringe with this new weekly report from our trusty iPhone that lets us know just how much time we averaged on our device that week? I do. Every time. And it was such an accomplishment to see that I went down 4 hours from the week before last week. Four hours!!! What even? That is whack that I could even go down that much, that there was even that much, to begin with. I think that we have forgotten how to sit in silence and think, to look around and take in the surroundings. We fill to gaps with apps on our phones instead. We fill the moments we wait for people to text us back with "scroll time" rather than "me time". Rather than look outside and sit in the shade and drink in the fresh air.

Safety Net

I think that our phones have become our safety nets, and this isn't necessarily a bad thing. If I ever feel uncomfortable walking alone to my car, I can whip out my phone and call my mom or my sister and feel a sense of security through being on a call. We use our phones in awkward situations. We use them to locate each other and to make sure everyone is safe. This is all so so so good! But I think we also are using them in circumstances where there is no problem, no emergency, no discomforting scenario. We are learning to be dependent on them. And though it's not all bad, I challenge you to take a walk outside next time you find yourself mindlessly scrolling over the same Instagram feed for the 12th time that hour. Look at the trees and at the birds that fly by you.

Break up with your phone for a sec. You might be less bored.
