Apple's fall conference in 2016: Iphone7 how to evolve?

DATE:2016-10-12 09:23 CLICK:
 
Apple Inc. unveiled its new water- and dust-resistant iPhone 7 and a new version of its Apple Watch with high-resolution cameras at its fall product event on Wednesday, and said a “Super Mario” game was coming to the new phone and “Pokemon Go” would feature on its upgraded Apple Watch.
 
Wireless AirPod
Apple has finally taken the controversial decision to drop the 3.5mm headphone jack from its latest iPhone. This change is to free up more space to make iPhone 7 slimmer than previous models. The move means that owners of the iPhone 7 will not be able to directly connect any headphones with a traditional 3.5mm plug.
But, the adapter that will allow users to use their normal headphones will be included in the box with each iPhone 7 (left) along with wired headphones that use the lightning connector.
AirPod, the new $159 wireless EarPods have a five-hour battery life - but will be sold separately.
 
Stereo Speakers
For the first time, iPhone comes with stereo speakers, delivering two times the audio output of iPhone 6s and increased dynamic range. 
 
APPLE ADDS TWO CAMERAS TO IPHONE 7 PLUS
The new iPhone 7 Plus features two rear-facing 12-megapixel cameras. One has a wide-angle lens and is the same as the rear camera found on the new iPhone, with a ƒ/1.8 aperture,The second camera sports a telephoto lens. The dual-lens setup enables a new 2x optical zoom feature.
 
BEAUTIFUL AND FUNCTIONAL
A attractive addition is two new finishes - one in a glossy jet black, and the other in matte black, simply called ‘black’, replacing the space grey of previous iPhone generations.
In the hand, while the handsets use the same sizing convention as the 6s models (4.7-inches for the smaller, 5.5-inches for the larger), while the jet black is much more slippery.
The white plastic antenna strip are a thing of the past - now Apple has coloured-matched them and relegated them to the top and bottom edges, creating a cleaner look.
 
PRICING AND AVAILABILITY
The iPhone 7 start at $649, the same price as the iPhone 6S when it launched, while the iPhone 7 Plus will start at $769.
Both handsets will be available in silver, gold, rose gold and the new black finish in 32GB, 128GB and 256GB models, while the new jet black finish will be offered exclusively on the 128GB and 256G versions.
