It is the time of the year again when Apple releases its next-generation products. On September 7, all eyes will be on San Francisco for the launching of highly anticipated iPhone 7 and Apple Watch 2. We might also see the release of MacBook Pro 2016, iPad Pro 2 and many more.
Apple has live stream for its upcoming special event. Interested viewers should visit this link on Wednesday, September 7. The streaming starts at 10am in the US.
Viewers can also tune in to Apple's official website. The live stream channel uses Apple's HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) technology. HLS requires users to have an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch with Safari on iOS 7.0 or higher. For Mac users, make sure to have Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X v10.8.5 or later. Windows PC users can also watch the iPhone 7 launching at the latest Microsoft Edge browser.
Speaking of iPhone 7, the next-generation device is expected to have a better camera, a more powerful processor, a better battery life and more storage space. Apple is reportedly going to sell the base of model of iPhone 7 with 32 GB storage, increasing the device's standard storage capacity from 16 GB.
One of the biggest changes in the next iPhone is that it will apparently not have a headphone jack. With that move, users will reportedly use wireless headphones, or headphones connected through an adapter plugged into the Lightning port.
Quartz says the iPhone 7 may also have a waterproof body, similar to Samsung Galaxy S7. There are also reports that the next iPhone will have dual SIM tray, a blue color option, a smart connecter and wireless charging technology.
For Apple Watch 2, it is rumored to have better waterproofing, a bigger battery and the ability to have more function over Wi-Fi.
The Verge reports the biggest addition in the device is GPS sensor. This feature should be a real help for runners, since it will allow the device to track them wherever they go.
One of the biggest complains in the first Apple Watch is that it's not very functional without an iPhone. To address the issue, the next-generation Watch may have mobile data support for greater independence from iPhone.
Furthermore, the Watch will come with 40 percent thinner chassis than the first generation model. The front-facing FaceTime camera is also a welcome addition to the wearable.
With that being said, we expect the complete specs and features of iPhone 7 and Apple Watch 2 will be revealed on Apple's September 7 event.
