Apple’s iPhone 7 Event on September 7
No More Headphone Jack
As per a number of rumors which have been doing the rounds for quite some time, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus won’t have a new design. Barring a few changes like the removal of the headphone jack, the next-gen device is not expected to flaunt too many all new features.
The flagship smartphone is said to have slightly repositioned antenna lines on the back plate, a pressure sensitive Home button. Both the models are reported to feature A10 processor and M10 motion co-processor.
3GB of RAM for 7 Plus
While the 4.7-inch model will have a 2GB of RAM, the 5.5-inch phablet is said to arrive with 3GB of RAM.
Whereas the iPhone 7 will continue to have a single camera, the 7 Plus will have a powerful dual camera system.
256GB Top Storage
According to the leaked features, the base model of the upcoming iPhone is to start with 32GB of storage in lieu of 16GB. 256GB is said to be the top storage.
Much Improved Battery/GPS for Apple Watch 2
Apple Watch 2 is rumored to retain the same form factor of the previous model. The next-gen wearable device is to arrive with a 35% larger battery required for a much-improved processor and the GPS chip.
The smartwatch will also come with a better waterproofing and swim tracking.
New MacBook Pro?
As for the introduction of a new MacBook Pro at the September 7 iPhone event, nothing could be said with certainty. Some rumors have suggested that Apple is to unveil the new MacBook Pro at a separate event later this year.
iOS 10, tvOS 10, and watchOS 3, are likely to be released publicly before the launch of iPhone 7-between September 16 and 23. macOS Sierra is reported to be released in October or November.
Apple is to live stream the “See you on the 7th” event. Stay tuned for more updates.
