Apple expected to unveil new iPhone 7

grace

Wednesday is a big day in the tech world. Apple is holding its annual launch event where the new iPhone 7 is expected to be revealed.

The much-heralded device comes just as rival Samsung has recalled its flagship Note 7 over battery issues.

The tech rumour mill has been running at fever pitch about possible new iPhone features and gadgetry.

Many commentators expect Apple to have ditched the headphone jack, leaving only one port.

That would force consumers to use Bluetooth headphones or buy those compatible with Apple’s Lightning port that is also used for charging.

However, old gear won’t be completely obsolete, as Apple is expected to include an adapter jack.

Major innovations?

Recent updates of the iPhone have struggled to make a really big splash as they have lacked major innovations.

The speculation is it will be the same with the model due to be revealed on Wednesday in San Francisco. More of the same – just a little bit better.

The usual targets for improvements are the camera quality and this time round the upgrade might mean to a two-lens clicker for some of the bigger models.

A dual-lens camera can take pictures with two different exposures, then combine the two images for improved picture quality.
