Apple has finally launched its most awaited gadgets iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus at event in UK along with the Apple Watch Series 2 and a set of wireless headphones called AirPods. Apple’s CEO Tim Cook took to the stage and confirmed that the company is ditching the headphone socket, meaning users will either have to use wireless Bluetooth headphones called AirPods to listen to music, or buy a pair of wired headphones that plug into the Lightning port – currently used for charging.
As like as previous iPhones, iPhone 7 comes in two versions, a 4.7-inch screen and a 5.5-inch “Plus” model, and feature several changes including water and dust resistance, a major upgrade to the camera with a “dual lens” system on the iPhone 7 Plus that allows for improved long-range photos, and a redesigned pressure-sensitive home button.
Apple has removed the headphone jack in favour of earbuds that connect through the phone’s charging port. It also unveiled a set of wireless headphones called AirPods that can be purchased separately at extra cost.
The iPhone 7 will start at £599 in the UK for the 32GB model, which makes it £60 more expensive than the iPhone 6s. There is some time to launch of these smartphones in India.
