So this week in DIGC202 we channelled our inner BCM112 classes…
Android vs iOS. We’ve heard it all before. For a brief recap feel free to check out this Prezi!
In light of the new iPhone 7 launch I thought I’d gather some of the greatest memes I’ve seen so far. In particular, about the removal of the head phone jack and the new ‘tampon without a string’ resembling air pods (yes. I don’t mean to disturb you but I have seen this line floating around very often when it comes to describing the airpods).
Adios to the headphone jack days, tangled cords and AUX cables. Airpods are here to change the interaction between users and the “100 year old” technology. And, like nothing different from Apple (aka 2011’s dramatic lightning cable change), a huge profit market has been introduced by adding features only usable on iPhone 7 onwards.
Interestingly, the airpod is compatible with any kind of phone that has Bluetooth features. So that means that even Android users can use them too. This smart idea knocks down another walled barrier, making Apple a tad more inclusive. However, part of me does not think that this is the real intention behind the airpods. Perhaps it’s too familiarise competitors with what new innovations Apple has to offer.
For a comprehensive list of everything you need to know about the iPhone 7 (if you’re interested), I’d suggest having a look at this list.
