DriveSavers was the first company to recover data from a failed iPhone and we’re ready to help if you lose anything important on the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus that were released in September.
Our engineers have already torn apart the new phone to document all of the internal changes. It turns out that DriveSavers, with thousands of smartphone recoveries under its belt, still has a better chance than anybody else to recover important data, even with the new iPhone 7.
The world has come a long way since 2007 when Apple’s Steve Jobs unleashed the first iPhone to worldwide critical acclaim.
“Today, Apple is going to reinvent the phone,” Jobs announced on January 9, 2007. By June 29, the avalanche of iPhone sales had begun.
Who could have predicted that by the fourth quarter of 2016, total sales of Apple phones would be approaching nearly 1 billion units?
Well, that’s where we are today and the numbers keep growing.
The manufacturer has not released any official sales figures, but media reports indicate strong demand is continuing for both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
The new phones do not look much different from iPhone 6 models, but there are some structural and internal changes, plus a few more color options, including Jet Black.
Some of the new features of the iPhone 7 include:
- Water resistance
- Longer battery life
- Faster memory chips
- Larger storage capacity
- Dual-lens camera (Plus only)
- Built-in wireless earbud capabilities (there’s no headphone jack)
“Even though they are water-resistant, an iPhone 7 may become bent, breaking the seal on the sides or cracking the screen. This would make the unit vulnerable to liquid damage,” said Mike Cobb, DriveSavers director of engineering. “As for data recovery of the iPhone 7, it’s business as usual.”
