2016 Apple Conference unveils new iPhone 7, Apple Watch, big updates
The iPhone 7, Apple Watch series 2, and AirPods were the highlighted points of the September 2016 conference.
The new iPhone 7 adds improvements to brightness quality, camera functionality and waterproof capabilities. New designs include the double camera, black and jet black finishes and a new home button.
The new power chip promises to be twice as fast as the iPhone 6, and the longest battery life on an iPhone yet. The natural speakers on the iPhone 7 are now stereo, and twice as loud as the iPhone 6. You can still use earpods with a lightning connector, but apple intends to supply new “airpods” for iPhone 7. iOS 10 will be used as well.
The Apple Watch series 2 promotes a new built-in GPS, water resistance up to 50 meters, a new dual-core processor and a brighter display. The Apple Watch 2 will have a heart-rate sensor and comprehensive workout app to utilize. It also sports an advanced activity tracker, body-health related apps, personal assistance and plenty of customization choices.
As mentioned before, Airpods will be the new face of Apple audio. A wireless pair of headphones that connect with Bluetooth. The Airpods are automatically on and connected at all times. They sense when they are in your ears, and will pause whenever they are removed. Talking to Siri is easy as well, by double tapping either Airpod, you activate Siri and she will communicate with you. She can turn up your volume and change your playlist without you even having to remove your phone from your pocket.
The Airpods have more than 24 hours of battery life while in their charging case, up to five hours on a single charge of battery, and about 15 minutes of charging time should equate to a three hour charge on your Airpods.
Airpods should also ignore any background noise while you talk into them. You can easily switch between devices with your Airpods by selecting them while connected.
