Apple's generational iPhone refreshes always showcase a considerable helping of hardware changes - but often, those changes seem a bit... familiar to those of us who are longtime Android users. The iPhone 7 was no exception: for every major new hardware feature Apple seemed to introduce, it was shockingly easy to recall a handful (at least) of Android devices that had offered them in the past. Now, that's not to say Apple did a bad job here, just that their "innovation" model tends to, from an outsider's perspective, look at what works in the market in existing devices, and then adopt it when the time seems right. In our latest video, Zachary Anderson takes a look at five of the most notable changes to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus that Apple "borrowed" from Android devices already on the market.
So, while the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus certainly don't seem like slouches, there's definitely a bit of, shall we say, inspiration that seems to fuel Apple's product decision-making, as has been the case for years now.
What do you think of the new iPhones? Do they have you considering straying? Or is this just more of the same "new" stuff we'd expect from Cupertino's aluminum appreciation society?
