    Comment on it

    In my iPhone 7 launch and rumour roundup  published 2 days back, I have compiled a series of  expected specs and features that were circulating around the globe. Glad to see, that majority of expectations that were included in the rumour roundup article were true.


    Has the launch been made?






    To the delight of the iPhone Fans, Apple has launched the iPhone7 and iPhone 7 Plus, along with a set of wireless head phones (AirPods) and Apple Watch Series 2.


    New 7 series iPhones come in two sizes, a 4.7-inch screen size for iPhone 7 and a 5.5-inch “Plus” variant. New phones feature several changes like a dust and water resistance, a pressure sensitive home button and a high-end camera with a ‘dual lens’ system (on iPhone 7 Plus) that enables you to easily capture the long range shots.


    Apple’s CEO Tim Cook took to center stage at an Apple event in San Francisco to confirm that company is ditching the headphone jack. Users will either have to buy a pair of wired headphones that could plug into the Lightening port or use AirPods (a set of wireless Bluetooth headphones). Apple Watch Series Two was also revealed, which will be water resistant too.




    New phones are priced convincingly, iPhone 7 for 32 GB model will start at £599 (INR 53500) in the UK for the 32GB model. It  will be £60 (INR 5500) more expensive than the existing iPhone 6s model. Pre-orders open this Friday in selected countries, shipment to these regions will be made by September 13. Unfortunately, India would not be a part of initial dispatch.
