Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, the event you’ve been waiting for is finally here. Apple is about to unveil its brand new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which will instantly become the most popular smartphones on the planet when they’re released. There have been so many leaks and rumors at this point that we feel like we already know just about everything there is to know about these hot new handsets. Of course nothing is official until Apple executives announce it on stage, and they’re about to get the show underway.
We already told you how to watch the live stream of Apple’s big iPhone 7 event, and in this post you’ll find a continuously-updated live blog from the whole team here at BGR.
Apple’s next-generation iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are expected to be huge updates compared to last year’s models. Sure, they might look similar, but just about everything under the hood will be new.
If leaks and rumors pan out — and we think they will — Apple’s new iPhones will feature a 16nm Apple A10 processor, larger batteries, new True Tone displays, a redesigned 3D Touch home button, a new single lens camera on the iPhone 7 and a dual-lens “iSight Duo” camera on the iPhone 7 Plus, twice as much storage for each new iPhone model, dramatically improved water-resistance, 2GB of RAM for the 7 and 3GB of RAM for the 7 Plus, larger batteries and two new color options including a glossy black.
Apple has more planned for the event as well, of course. We’ll see the finished versions of iOS 10 and macOS in addition to watchOS 3, and Apple also reportedly plans to unveil a brand new version of the Apple Watch. Does that cover everything? Will Apple have a few surprises in store for us? It’s finally time to find out.
