iPhone 7 Announcement Date Is Here — Along With a MacBook Pro Overhaul
When is the iPhone 7 coming out? Finally, we have an announcement date: Sept. 7, according to Apple scoop king Mark Gurman at Bloomberg. The phone will be available for preorder Sept. 9 and released Sept. 16, according to reputable reports.
New features on the iPhone 7 will likely include an improved camera, larger hard drive on the low-end model, possibly a new color, stereo speakers and no headphone jack. Wireless charging and a stronger Gorilla Glass 5 screen are also rumored.
We can also expect an updated MacBook Pro line, which is exciting for Apple laptop users — we haven't seen big improvements on the Pro in more than four years.
Via Bloomberg, citing sources familiar with the matter:
The updated notebooks will be thinner, include a touch screen strip for function keys, and will be offered with more powerful and efficient graphics processors for expert users such as video gamers.
The new MacBook Pros aren't quite as thin as the new MacBooks — they'll still have a sturdier "Pro" feel, apparently. It seems they'll be a good bet for power users who need more RAM, speed and storage.
