Rumors and leaks have an age-old relationship with the Cupertino Company, Apple. The recent September 7 event for unveiling the new iPhones and an Apple Watch 2 was also engulfed by several gossips and leaks.
The most shocking and surprising rumor was a demise of a 3.5 mm headphone jack from the upcoming iPhones.. Apple fanboys relentlessly waited for Apple’s creative alternate of a headphone jack and the company did not disappoint them by introducing a stunning and ‘lightening’ substitute.
Here is a small excerpt of the recent magnificent Apple event that gave many existing and prospective customers a strong reason to cheer:
iPhone 7 Duo
Apple has maintained the tradition of unveiling iPhone pair through presenting the latest iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. A better camera and a faster processor have made the new iPhones a great choice for the Apple product enthusiasts.
Other notable features of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are:
- Water resistance: Well, the term is not new for Apple. It has already made iPhone 6S water resistant to an extent, but then the company did not promote that feature. Both iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are splash and water resistant with a high rating of IP67. For layman’s terms, both the iPhones can withstand the powerful streams right on them and can dip in up to one meter of water for half an hour.
- Improved battery life: Apple claims that the iPhone 7 will last two hours more than the iPhone 6S and the bigger iPhone 7 Plus will last an hour more than the iPhone 6S Plus. In a way, the iPhone duo has the longest battery life ever. Improved battery life is largely attributed to a faster A10 Fusion chip.
- Dual camera: Imagine two all-new cameras shoot like one. The iPhone 7 Plus has converted this imagination into reality. Undoubtedly, the dual-camera smartphones are the future of mobile photography, and Apple has just entered in the elite class of dual-camera phones. The iPhone 7 Plus has the same 12MP lens as the iPhone 7, but it adds a second 12MP telephoto lens for achieving up to 2x optical zoom.
In addition to these features, a brand-new, ‘click-resistant’ Home button and Super Mario Run game are the other attractions of the latest iPhone 7 duo.
Though the latest iPhone duo managed to steal the show, the new earphones, aka EarPods or AirPods, were certainly remained in the limelight. It is the first outcome of Apple’s long-term vision for wireless technology.
Apple ushers in the era of wireless earphones with the introduction of amazing AirPods. Although the upcoming AirPods will work on much-known Bluetooth technology, Apple has left no stone unturned in making AirPods one of the most sought after product. Ever since Apple has acquired Beats, a leading audio product maker, it was rumored that the Cupertino Crew would come up with an extraordinary product for music lovers.
AirPods is just beginning, but the company has set its standard while allowing AirPods to connect to both the new iPhones and Apple Watch. What’s more is AirPods can connect us with Siri just through a gentle double-tapping.
W1 chip and quality engineering have made AirPods comfortable in wearing and awesome in hearing. Sync feature works well between the two AirPods and their battery life is said to be of five hours. AirPods come with the charging case that can provide an extra battery life for a day, as Apple claims.
If AirPods work well as per the company’s expectations, they can be a game-changer for Apple.
However, the users will have to wait until late October as the AirPods will available as an additional product at the cost of $159.
Apple Watch, Series 2
It is better to say second-generation Apple Watch to the Apple Watch Series 2. Apple has designed the next-gen watch by keeping sportspersons in mind. A new S2 chip with a dual-core processor makes the new Apple Watch 50 percent faster than the first Apple Watch (The Series One Line). The White ceramic version is also available for Apple Watch Series 2 along with aluminum and stainless steel.
Nike watch model is specially designed for runners and includes enhanced fitness-related features. Waterproofing and GPS are the noteworthy features of the new Apple Watch. The new watch is water resistant up to 50 m, while the built-in GPS is a hiker-friendly feature. However, the new Apple Watch is dearer than its predecessor as expected.
The introduction of Pokémon Go in the new watch indicates Apple’s aggressiveness in the domain of smartwatches.
Apple also declared the official dates for releasing iOS 10 and macOS Sierra as September 13 and September 20 respectively. It would be interesting to hands-on the features of both the updates. It is believed that Sierra will integrate Siri with the new Mac, while iOS 10 will give access of both Siri and iMessage to the developers.
That’s it! Now the important dates for you, Apple fans: September 9 is a date for preorders while September 16 is a date when the new iPhones will be available. Besides, both iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will offer 32, 128, and 256GB storage capacity.
