A Quick Comparison of the iPhone® 6 & 7, Akron, Ohio

If you are switching from a Windows®-based smartphone or gifting a youngster with their first mobile device, investing in an older generation iPhone® upgrade is worth considering. Many refurbished iPhone 6 and 7 models, for example, come equipped with newer operating systems and capabilities, allowing users to become familiar with the functionality of Apple® devices. Here is a closer look at the similarities and differences between the two iPhone generations.    

iPhone 6

If you want a reliable device that performs all basic functions with ease, the iPhone 6 is a sound investment. iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models are available in gold, silver, and space gray finishes to suit consumer preferences. There is also a headphone jack, as with all older generation devices, as well as a tactile, press button to turn on the home screen display. The liquid crystal display (LCD) screen provides crisp color to view content without distortion while holding the device at various angles. The iPhone 6 features the A9 processor and 1 GB of RAM, which makes it suitable for storing multiple files and running apps that don’t drain a lot of power.

iPhone 7

iPhone UpgradeIf you often use social networking, video sharing and editing, and navigational apps, opt for a seventh generation iPhone upgrade. The model features the A10 Fusion processor; with four cores, it’s designed to be much more powerful than the A9 predecessor. The device features 2 GB of RAM, which means you won’t have to worry about programs stalling while loading. iPhone 7 models also feature an LCD screen for better visibility but can display more colors than the previous generation devices. There is no headphone jack, however, so earbuds are connected to the lightning port. The solid home button prevents liquid from seeping into the internal assembly for added protection. Hardware colors are available in silver, gold, rose gold, black, and jet black.
