Apple has confirmed the unveiling date for its new iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and most likely the Apple Watch 2. The three devices will be announced on September 7th and Apple already started sending out invitations for the event that will take place in San Francisco, at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium.
The screen sizes of the new iPhones haven’t been changed, so they’re still measuring 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch, but no source was able to tell if their resolutions have been increased or they’re stuck at 750 x 1334 pixels and 1080 x 1920 pixels respectively. For weeks we’ve been hearing that Apple has removed the 3.5mm earphone jack and this was seen in the leaked images. Also, the thin radio antenna lines are missing from the top and bottom and instead of the headphone jack, the new lightning port will serve as an alternative.
Apple has improved the rear cameras, as the iPhone 7 will come with a larger lens, while the iPhone 7 Plus will have a dual camera setup, but most likely, the resolution will be kept at 12MP. The novelty is that the other camera from the back of the phablet will support an optical zoom, which will be very useful when taking photos of a distant object.
From the beginning, Apple has received complaints from iPhone users who were not satisfied with the battery life. If rumors are true, then the 1715 mAh battery from the iPhone 6s will be bumped to 1960mAh, while the battery capacity of the iPhone 7 Plus will jump from 2750 mAh to 2910mAh.
The current iPhones are powered by an Apple A9 dual-core 1.84 GHz Twister processor that’s backed by 2GB. The new models will introduced the A10 chipset that will support 3GB of RAM.
Regarding the Apple Watch 2, it will come in two variants: 38mm and 42mm and there are low chances to see an upgraded resolution, as the original models support 272×340 pixels (326dpi) and 312×390 pixels (326dpi). The new processor will be an upgraded version of the Apple S1 – mostly likely will be called Apple S2 and will be built using a more efficient manufacturing process. Also, the Watch 2 will be waterproof, will have a barometer and GPS.
