Apple unveiled the all new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus on Wednesday, 7 September 2016. However, one thing was evidently missing from the event, the audio jack. To make up for this absence, Apple will be introducing wireless EarPods.
Apple introduced its unique wireless “AirPods” to go with the iPhone to compensate the fact it does not feature a jack. The iPhone is expected to have a custom designed Bluetooth chip for the wireless communication to be made possible. This Bluetooth like chip is also expected to use less battery. This could be considered as bonus points for Apple, if you take into consideration the poor battery life of an Apple. The downfall to the “AirPod” is that it has been suggested Apple will not include them with the phone. Instead, they will sell them as an additional accessory.
The iPhone 7 has certainly taken smartphones in a new direction. Pre-order your iPhone 7 and 7 Plus now!
