Everything You Need To Know From Today's Apple Event (Including iPhone 7 News!)
September 7, 2016
Today was the annual Apple event where they reveal the newest iPhone and tell us other less important updates. Here’s a breakdown of what was announced and when you can buy it all:
Apple’s Twitter account posted, then deleted, news about the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus before the conference even started! Luckily, there are screenshots with the evidence.
The rumors were true! The new model is water-resistant and there is no headphone jack (tears). Other improvements include new color options as well as a dual camera with True Tone display and four LED flash lights. Also, apparently, the battery life is better, but we’ll see about that. You can preorder both new devices starting TODAY and they will be available to buy on September 16th.
A new Apple Watch is coming. The Apple Watch, Series 2 is water-resistant and has the brand’s brightest display yet. It also comes with a new operating system and the ability to play Pokemon Go. #Priorities. You can buy it for $369 and preorders start on September 9th.
The conference started with Carpool Karaoke (as all good events do in 2016). CEO Tim Cook went for a spin with James Corden to announce that the new episodes of the viral series are coming to Apple Music in 2017. Fun times!
