Apple unveils new iPhones, waterproof smartwatch

24 September, 2016

Of course, Apple is including one of these adapters with every new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, but if I know anything, it's that people are going to lose a lot of these adapters. And no, this is not only speculation from random reporters' first hands-ons, this comes straight from Apple's official iPhone 7 site. We are still waiting on confirmation about the RAM on the iPhone 7 but sources claim that it packs 2GB RAM. Just like the iPhones, the new Apple Watches would be available for pre-order on the 9th of September, which is today, meaning that if you're so inclined, you can actually go ahead and place your pre-orders.

All three devices were revealed Wednesday during an event hosted by Apple in San Francisco. You have to pay the premium price for the 128GB iPhone 7. Apple's suppliers also are impacted. Apple introduced a new, fully submersible Apple Watch.

AppleCare+ is the company's optional device insurance, costing customers $A129 for the iPhone SE and $A189 for the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. The new products are water resistant, and the iPhone 7 has new cameras.

Initially I was aiming for the Jet Black iPhone 7, but then I saw that Apple is warning about scratches. And despite the fact that the new matte-black option is far superior, the jet-black model seems to be the most-wanted iPhone in the bunch.

On Thursday, Apple warned that it will not provide opening weekend sales figures as it has traditionally done.

But having said that, the iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus could still be available in the market with third-party.

The newly announced iPhone 7 doesn't have a headphone jack, which has annoyed many fans of iDevices.

Next year's iPhone 8 is expected to be a major upgrade and is rumored to have a curved-screen OLED display.

Is the Apple iPhone price cheaper this time?

The Apple Watch Series 2 also supports Apple's soon to be released AirPods.

Apple's second-generation smartwatch features built-in Global Positioning System, better waterproofing, a faster processor, brighter display and more health and fitness features.
