Apple is supposedly holding their fall event on September 7, a little over a week from today. We expect Apple will confirm this in an announcement tomorrow or Tuesday. We will update this article once we have confirmed this.
The most sought after item during this event will undoubtedly be the iPhone 7. Here’s what we know so far about Apple’s new flagship phone:
– There will be 2 models. A 4.7″ iPhone and a larger 5.5″ iPhone 7 Plus
– The 4.7″ model will have a larger camera which presumably means the iPhone will have a larger sensor that can gather more light and produce better photos.
– The 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus is said to have a dual-camera system that takes two images at once and stitches them together into one great photo. Dual cameras could also let you change the focus of photos, giving them the same look as photos taken with a DSLR.
– The iPhone 7 won’t have a headphone jack. Instead of a traditional headphone jack, you’ll have to use headphones that plug into the iPhone’s Lightning port or a pair of Bluetooth headphones.Apple will likely include a pair of Lightning earbuds with the iPhone 7.
– The iPhone 7’s home button won’t be a button at all. Instead, it’ll be a pressure-sensitive pad using the same tech as 3D Touch. This is the first step in removing the home button, which is expected to go away altogether in next year’s iPhone.
Apple Watch 2
We may also see a new Apple Watch, since it’s due for an update. Early reports indicate that the new version of the Apple Watch, won’t be a major upgrade. Instead, it’ll likely look nearly identical to the current Apple Watch, but include new sensors for tracking health, like a GPS and barometer, according to accurate Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities.
Apple’s four new operating systems: iOS 10 (iPhone/iPad), macOS Sierra (Mac), tvOS (Apple TV), and watchOS 3 (Apple Watch) have been in beta since the company first unveiled them at WWDC in June. The final versions are launching this fall, and Apple will announce the release date during the iPhone 7 event.
As soon as we confirm Apple’s exact event date, we will let you know. All signs point to September 7th.
