Your Guide to the Best Apps for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus
You’re the proud owner of a new iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus and you’re eager to start trying out the latest capabilities. In addition to Apple upgrading its signature smartphone, the company has also provided a new version of its mobile operating system, iOS 10. To get more out of your device, here are five of the best apps for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus that you’ll want to check out.
Dark Sky Weather
Keeping up with changing weather conditions will be much easier when you deploy the Dark Sky Weather app on your new iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus. You’ll know whether to prepare for a blizzard or if you need to pack an umbrella before heading out, tracking the storm’s path. What’s more, iOS 10 allows custom notifications about your weather preferences to appear on the lock screen.
The new notifications capability in iOS 10 means that you can now receive smart notifications right on your iPhone’s lock screen. Try it out with Foursquare, which will send you recommendations for restaurants while you are outside looking for a bite.
Your new iPhone has stereo speakers and a screen that’s 25 percent brighter than the previous model. This makes it a great app to enjoy movies and TV shows with the Netflix app while you’re on the go, especially now that the Netflix app has an offline mode which allows you to watch videos when you aren’t connected to WiFi.
To better appreciate the gorgeous wide color display of your iPhone 7 Plus, turn your eyes to the heavens with the Sky Guide astronomy app. Aim your device at the sky to automatically detect and identify constellations and galaxies. The new notifications center in iOS 10 will display rise and set times for planets, the moon and sun.
Whether you use GarageBand to record your own podcast episodes or make new songs, it really shines when you run the latest version on Apple’s upgraded iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Now you can hear your creations even better thanks to the new stereo speakers.
