The iPhone launch captured the bulk of the media attention this week – like it could have been otherwise. The pair of smartphones surprised no one due to the abundance of leaks, and yet everyone was curious to read the official bits.
So, no headphone jack, but Lightning EarPods and a dongle in the box, plus $159 wireless AirPods. No more clicking the Home button, it’s now pressure-sensitive instead. Great looking Jet Black color option that scratches easily, and IP67 certification, but no water damage covered under warranty. Of course, there are the usual upgrades in the internals (new chipset), with the 7 Plus also getting a bump in RAM up to 3GB.
That’s a very brief summary though, if you missed the iPhone 7 launch, be sure to catch up using the links below.
Meanwhile, Samsung is still dealing with the Galaxy Note7 recall, ‘heartbreaking’ as it may be.
