Finally, the wait is over and here comes the official update of iPhone 7. Apple just announced iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, Apple Watch 2 and iOS 10 at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, San Francisco.
Every Apple lover was waiting for this awesome moment from a year & it's here. It is obvious that the new iPhone will be a better iPhone with some unique features just like the Force touch that was introduced by iPhone 6S in 2015. I already told you some finalized features of iPhone 7 series in my earlier story.
I've updated the official specifications, features and more with these sample images.

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus got a minor change of Antenna and Button gaps. This time also, we have the same silent button & volume rockers on the left of the device.
iPhone 7 will be IP 67 rated. No need to worry for Water and Dust now.
OIS on all models, 12MP all new camera, F1.8 aperture, 6 element lens for sharper images. High-speed sensor. The true tone flash is also new - with a total of 4 LEDs inside. A brand new image signal processor will be much faster and more capable. Also, a new 7 MP FaceTime HD front camera. Up from 5 MP.
New Live Photo capabilities, raw format images, and wide color support for the camera.
iPhone 7 Plus gets optical 2x zoom, and up to 10x digital zoom. It'll also work in the new Portrait camera mode.
"Now, we're not saying you should throw away your DSLRs. What we're saying is this is the best camera on any smartphone."
New A10 Fusion chip with 4-core CPU. 2 high-power cores, and 2 power-efficient cores; hopefully battery life will be much improved.
OMG! Stereo speakers on the iPhone 7! Twice the volume than the speakers in the previous iPhone
It's sealed: EarPods are going Lightning. And there's the new Lightning to 3.5mm adapter: included in the box with every new iPhone 7.
"The reason to move on: courage." "The courage to move on, do something new that benefits all of us."
As there were rumors that Apple will remove the 3.5mm jack from its upcoming devices. So, they finally ditched the 3.5mm jack for better sound quality. Now you can use the USB to 3.5mm connector or the USB type ear pods.
You gonna love this upgrade as it is the longest battery life ever in an iPhone.
Preorders will start from September 9. It will be available from 16 September & the starting cost of this iPhone 7 is $649.
The glossy, uber-snazzy Jet Black variant is coming only in 128 GB and 256 GB capacities. By the way, iOS 10 is coming September 13. So, What are you thinking now?
