iPhone 7 is Here, Release Date Set for September 16
Apple has announced the all new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The devices feature all new cameras, water resistance, stereo speakers, and a longer battery life.
The internal components of the iPhone 7 have been updated with a faster processor. The enclosure of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus looks quite similar to the same as the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, though the rear of the device has been slightly changed so that the obvious antenna bands are no longer stretching across the back of the device. Additionally, the iPhone 7 is available in a new shiny jet black color and a new matte black color, alongside the typical silver, gold, and rose gold colors.
You’ll be able to pre-order the new iPhone now and deliveries and store availability are set for Friday September 16.
