iPhone 7 creates a fanboy

Apple unveiled their newest addition to the iPhone family last week, the iPhone 7, and the innovations are ground-breaking. With Apple releasing a new generation of its flagship device every year, consumers have grown accustomed to CEO Tim Cook claiming each new model is better than the last.
