With all of the rumors and leaks we’ve seen pour out over the past few months, it was starting to feel like Apple’s actual iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus unveiling might never really get here. Thankfully for Apple fans though, that’s not the case. Today is the day, ladies and gentlemen, that Apple will officially take the wraps off of its next-generation iPhones and put an end to all the rumors and speculation.
You’ve read the reports and you’ve seen all the leaks, but now it’s time to watch along live as Apple’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus become a reality.
In our most recent iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus preview published just yesterday, we explained why Apple’s “boring” new iPhones will actually be its most exciting iPhones ever. Apple’s next-generation iPhones will indeed look very much like the iPhone 6 series and the iPhone 6s lineup, but bloggers were way too quick to judge a book by its cover. Apple is expected to have added tons of great new features to its new iPhone models, likely making the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus must-have upgrades in the process.
Among the changes we’re expecting are twice the storage for each new model maxing out at 256GB, two new colors, upgraded True Tone displays, two different upgraded rear cameras, more powerful Apple A10 processors, water-resistance and a new 3D Touch home button.
Are there any surprises in store as well? Apple almost certainly has a trick or two up its sleeve, and it has some more announcements in store as well. How does a brand new Apple Watch 2 with integrated GPS, a better display, a faster processor and a bigger battery sound? There might even be a few more announcements in store as well.
