It’s got to the point where mobile phones are used more for other tasks than they are for actually making calls, but even if more consumer focus is going towards other aspects of a smartphone, manufacturers shouldn’t pay any less attention to the microphones used for calling. Fortunately we think the iPhone 7S call quality will be just as good as previous iPhones, if not better.
Find out all the reasons why we believe you’ll see superior call quality in Apple’s next generation iPhone, and all the reasons why it’s expected to be significantly better than any Android handset launching in 2017.
Every year it becomes cheaper for manufacturers to produce hardware and improvements are usually made across the board. Along with the improved hardware components, we’d hope that the iPhone 7S call quality gets an improvement too. The speaker used for calls should definitely get a bit of an upgrade and the microphone in the iPhone lineup has always been renowned for producing good audio.
Apple doesn’t release the information of the microphone specifications or improvements made to the call quality but we’d imagine it would get looked at whilst the iPhone 7S is in development. This doesn’t include the new features of iOS 11 which will come preloaded on the 7s that will also have a significant effect on the quality of phone calls.
One feature that could be a great introduction to improve the iPhone 7S call quality is noise cancelling on the microphone. Noise cancelling features, whether software related or hardware related, could help to block out background noise during a call from an iPhone 7S. Whilst an iPhone 7S owner could still pick up background noise from the person they are calling, the background noise from their own end could be reduced.
HD Voice Explained
HD Voice is a feature on iOS that not many iPhone owners take advantage of. With HD voice, you’ll be sending more audio frequencies than you would with a typical call. As a result, call audio quality is usually a lot better. For HD voice to work, iOS owners will need to switch on LTE in their mobile settings and have a connection to an LTE network. Data consumption will take place for what’s known as VoLTE (voice over LTE) but it will increase the call quality. HD Voice only works if both callers are using the feature.
