Despite some earlier rumors, Apple didn’t use the extra space to make the iPhone 7 or 7 Plus any slimmer than last year’s models, the 6S and 6S Plus. The iPhone 7 Plus (and only the Plus) comes with two 12mp cameras with one telephoto dedicated to give you better zoom, while the 12mp f/1.8 wide-angle makes sure the photos are Apple-worthy.
The iPhone 7 starts at $649; the Plus starts at $769.
The starting price would be Rs 60,000 for the 32GB iPhone model in India. But, if you’re into Bluetooth technology, Apple is releasing the AirPods, wireless headphones with a five-hour battery life that can sense when it’s in your ear and ready to play music. Silver, gold and rose gold iPhones aren’t being swamped with delays.
Those changes mean Apple can now waterproof the iPhone to IP67, meaning you’ll be able to get it wet without it being the end of the world.
The iPhone 7, with a 4.7-inch display, will cost Dollars 649 while the 5.5 inch iPhone7 Plus will come at a price tag of USD 769. If you trade it in for a new iPhone, that two-year clock starts over.
Other things were announced at Apple’s latest product launch bash yesterday, though much more fun is this summary of The Register’s attempts to get into said event.
Versions of the Apple Watch Series 2 are displayed during an Apple media event in San Francisco, California September 8, 2016. This is Apple updating in a subtle way; one that will benefit those who are upgrading, but on first glance, not one that will hugely draw iPhone 6S fans who might be upset that their phone is now old and needs to be replaced. The iPhone 7 has no headphone jack.
“Apple has a very long history of removing features we all thought were necessary, and then convincing us that we didn’t need them”, said Ask, noting that Apple paved the way in phasing out the use of floppy discs and optical drives in computers.
In a tie-up with sports giant Nike, the company said the Apple Watch Nike+ will be available in India and other countries late October.
While the cautionary footnote may take the sheen off of the jet-black iPhone for potential buyers, Apple has a ready-made solution: “We suggest you use one of the many cases available to protect your iPhone”. Your basic silicon cases will be available staring at Rs. 2900 in India just about the same price as recently launched Reliance Jio’s 4G smartphone which was priced at Rs. 2999. Price sits at $39.99 Dollars from Belkin and Apple.
According to numerous tweets, the Jet Black iPhone 7 sold out within minutes.
Instead of a headphone slot, it will now come with earphones that fit into the phone’s lighting port, currently used for charging and data transfer.
