It’s that time again. Apple developers and Tim Cook just debuted the latest and greatest iPhone models, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. There are a number of big changes and updates coming to these new models, including new colors and features that we have never seen before from Apple, plus an awaited Apple Watch makeover.
New Wireless AirPods
Debuting in late October of this year, Apple’s new wireless AirPods will be replacing the traditional headphones. These new earphones will never get tangled and are always on after a simple, effortless one-tap setup. The AirPods can sense when you’re wearing them and even pause when they are removed from the ear. They also know when you’re talking. Those that have the iPhone 7 Plus can activate Siri with the AirPods without even taking the phone out of their pocket. All of this is possible thanks to the Apple W1 chip. This chip produces efficient wireless for not only a better connection but for better sound, too. The new W1 also effectively manages battery life, allowing users to listen to up to five hours on one single charge.
AirPod Charging Case
Since these new earbuds will require a charge, Apple has made it easy for iPhone users to charge them while on the go. The AirPods are sold with a charging case that offers multiple charges for up to 24-hours of total listening time. In fact, just 15 minutes of charging the AirPods in the charging case gives users three hours of listening time.
Colors, New and Old
The new lineup of smartphones will be available in the familiar finishes that you already know and love, plus one new color. The options of rose gold, gold and silver will all be available with the addition of the sleek and desirable all-black model, as well.
What You Get
The new iPhone models, iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus are each sold with the new EarPods and lightning connector, a lightning to USB cable, 5W USB power adapter and the lightning to 3.5 millimeter headphone jack adapter.
Apple Watch Makeover
In addition to the new iPhone 7 hitting the market this fall, another Apple product will be available for luxury watch lovers and tech aficionados: the Apple Watch Hermès. Yes, that’s right. The iconic luxury brand is pairing up with the most innovative tech company to date to create a refined smartwatch with handcrafted leather watch bands made by Hermès and a series of Apple-designed watch faces including the Cape Cod, Clipper and Espace Hermès watches. You can anticipate seeing a variety of leather bands that reflect the Hermès brand with a touch of equestrian flair and classic Hermès style, including the signature Hermès orange. In fact, the exclusive orange-colored Hermès sport band, which is included with every Apple Watch Hermès purchase, is not only flexible and light but is also water resistant, making it perfect for exercising. In late September, Apple Watch Hermès will be available in a number of cities across the U.S. and Canada including Boston, Portland, New York, Las Vegas, Washington D.C., Houston, Honolulu, Toronto, Seattle, Miami, Dallas, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles. The new Apple Watch Hermès is a must-have for any modern day watch collector.
