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.

I'd Rather Be Single Than Settle – Here Is Why Being Picky Is Okay

They're on their best behavior when you're dating.

Dating nowadays described in one word: annoying.

What's even more annoying? when people tell you that you're being too "picky" when it comes to dating. Yes, from an outside perspective sometimes that's exactly what it looks like; however, when looking at it from my perspective it all makes sense.

I've heard it all:

"He was cute, why didn't you like him?"

"You didn't even give him a chance!"

"You pay too much attention to the little things!"

What people don't understand is that it's OKAY to be picky when it comes to guys. For some reason, girls in college freak out and think they're supposed to have a boyfriend by now, be engaged by the time they graduate, etc. It's all a little ridiculous.

However, I refuse to put myself on a time table such as this due to the fact that these girls who feel this way are left with no choice but to overlook the things in guys that they shouldn't be overlooking, they're settling and this is something that I refuse to do.

So this leaves the big question: What am I waiting for?

Well, I'm waiting for a guy who...

1. Wants to know my friends.

Blessed doesn't even begin to describe how lucky I am to have the friends that I do.

I want a guy who can hang out with my friends. If a guy makes an effort to impress your friends then that says a lot about him and how he feels about you. This not only shows that he cares about you but he cares about the people in your life as well.

Someone should be happy to see you happy and your friends contribute to that happiness, therefore, they should be nothing more than supportive and caring towards you and your friendships.

2. Actually, cares to get to know me.

Although this is a very broad statement, this is the most important one. A guy should want to know all about you. He should want to know your favorite movie, favorite ice cream flavor, favorite Netflix series, etc. Often, (the guys I get stuck on dates with) love to talk about themselves: they would rather tell you about what workout they did yesterday, what their job is, and what they like to do rather than get to know you.

This is something easy to spot on the first date, so although they may be "cute," you should probably drop them if you leave your date and can recite everything about their life since the day they were born, yet they didn't catch what your last name was.

3. How they talk about other women.

It does not matter who they're talking about, if they call their ex-girlfriend crazy we all know she probably isn't and if she is it's probably their fault.

If they talk bad about their mom, let's be honest, if they're disrespecting their mother they're not going to respect you either. If they mention a girl's physical appearances when describing them. For example, "yeah, I think our waitress is that blonde chick with the big boobs"

Well if that doesn't hint they're a complete f* boy then I don't know what else to tell you. And most importantly calling other women "bitches" that's just disrespectful.

Needless to say, if his conversations are similar to ones you'd hear in a frat house, ditch him.

4. Phone etiquette.

If he can't put his phone down long enough to take you to dinner then he doesn't deserve for you to be sitting across from him.

If a guy is serious about you he's going to give you his undivided attention and he's going to do whatever it takes to impress you and checking Snapchat on a date is not impressive. Also, notice if his phone is facedown, then there's most likely a reason for it.

He doesn't trust who or what could pop up on there and he clearly doesn't want you seeing. Although I'm not particularly interested in what's popping up on their phones, putting them face down says more about the guy than you think it does.

To reiterate, it's okay to be picky ladies, you're young, there's no rush.

Remember these tips next time you're on a date or seeing someone, and keep in mind: they're on their best behavior when you're dating. Then ask yourself, what will they be like when they're comfortable? Years down the road? Is this what I really want? If you ask yourself these questions you might be down the same road I have stumbled upon, being too picky.. and that's better than settling.

I Use My Phone To Write, Ask Me Anything

12-year-old me would be disappointed.


I use my phone as much as the next young adult but I don't use it for reasons beyond social media. I check my accounts, YouTube, music and maybe reply to emails. I don't use it for school work, work in general, or even side projects. It's become such a norm to use my laptop that I convinced myself I need it in order to do work that needs to be done.

I use to write around 300 words a day before I was given my first laptop. I wrote stories and blog posts every week for my small group of readers. Writing on a phone wasn't easy but it was the only way I could read stories and write to them as well.

Since I first got a laptop, I stopped using my phone as a way to write. My laptop was more accessible and it was easier to catch mistakes. It made more sense to look for a larger screen. The con side was that because it became more accessible, I didn't feel such a weight to write.

I wasn't writing stories so much as I was writing a blog post and strange poems. My mind was too into reality with all of high school and college that fairytales could only be explored through other people's stories.

Recently I was left without a laptop at my disposal but my major is a huge reason I continue to have to constantly write. I have to grow with my writings and expand my thoughts from what I learn and what I realize about myself. For a long time now, I convinced myself that my laptop was my only way to accomplish a task. I had completely forgotten that I have the world at my fingertips with just a tap of my phone.
