Apple unveils iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus

iPhone 7

SAN FRANCISCO (Diya TV) – It’s water resistant, has stereo speakers and a brand-spanking new camera. Apple officially unveiled the company’s newest mobile devices – the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus – Wednesday.

The new phone looks quite similar to its predecessor, the iPhone 6S, however, it features a much shinier body which the company has named “jet black.” The Apple logo remains seen on the rear of the phone, but it now constructed of stainless steel. Apple will also release a version that’s completely black, including the logo.

The phone’s home button will rely on Apple’s taptic technology – similar to the new Mac trackpads, it won’t actually click but instead will give you the sensation of pressing a button.

Apple has presented this phone as the most durable of any ever produced, at least in the forms of dust and water corruption. The next-gen models meet the IP67 protection standard, which is good enough to briefly drop it in a pool but not good enough to shower with regularly. The camera, likely the most-used feature of everybody’s phone, has been completely revamped with optical image stabilization, allowing for up to 3x longer exposure. The iPhone 7 camera has a six-element, 1.8 aperture lens, a 12 megapixel sensor that is 60 percent faster, with a quad-LED flash with 50 percent light output. Plus, the iPhone 7 will have a 7-megapixel front camera, up from a 5-megapixel camera on the iPhone 6s.

The iPhone 7 camera will be the most technological the device has ever been equipped with.

Even more, the iPhone 7 will come equipped with two 12-megapixel cameras on the back. The dual-lens setup allows for both wide angle and telephoto – one lens handles 1x zoom and the other hands 2x zoom.

The iPhone 7 will feature not one, but two lenses on its camera.

Users can now simply tap on the camera screen to zoom, and the phone will automatically focus the camera to the region in the tapped area. The iPhone 7 Plus will have 10x zoom capabilities.

The new phones will also feature a completely new and much anticipated stereo speaker sound system. The 3.5mm headphone jack is gone, instead, Earpods will connect via the Lightning port. Lightning Earpods will be included in the box, and so will an adapter for folks who are invested in 3.5mm compatible headphones. This move came in all likelihood because of the space needed for things like taptic engines and dual-lens cameras, and needed to get rid of the 3.5mm port for something more versatile, like the Lightning port.

Apple have always introduced a new processor with the production of each new phone, and the iPhone 7 isn’t any different.

The new A10 fusion has a four-core CPU: two high-performance CPU cores (each 40 percent faster than the A9) and two high-efficiency cores that run at one-fifth the power to save battery life. A new performance controller determines which apps run on which core.

Apple additionally took time Wednesday to showcase the second generation of the company’s watch. Apple Watch Series 2 sees the uber pricey Watch Edition line ushered away, and the company has shifted focus to the fashion world – now that the Galeries Lafayette, Colette, and Hermès sell the Apple Watch, Apple can focus on mass-market watches, and the accessories for those Apple Watches that are in such high demand can be found on websites like Mobile Mob as well.

The Apple Watch (aluminum model) and the Apple Watch Nike+ model will cost $369. It’ll be available on September 16. The Apple Watch Nike+ will be available in late October. The Apple Watch “Series 1” will stick around and cost $269. It’ll come with a new dual-core processor.

Apple introduced its new series of the Apple Watch Wednesday during their traditional September press conference.

“Apple Watch has really changed what people expect from the watch,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said on stage. He went on to compare the watch to other brands, and said the Apple Watch is second to only Rolex in terms of sales, ahead of Fossil and Omega. “But we are just getting started,” he added.

The Apple Watch Series 2 is swim-proof. You can swim up to 50 meters. The Watch Series 2 is completely sealed, except the speaker. The speaker itself ejects the water at the end of a workout. There are two new workout features now. You can start a swimming workout for instance.

Trump Tax Returns

NEW YORK (Diya TV) — A federal judge ruled President Trump must turn over eight years of his personal and corporate tax returns to Manhattan prosecutors, striking down the President’s argument that a sitting president cannot be criminally investigated. The ruling was quickly appealed and this case could end up in the Supreme Court to answer the constitutional question of whether presidents can be charged with a crime.

Meanwhile, the President celebrated a victory by FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, as a federal appellate court upheld most of the FCC’s repeal of net neutrality. It also ruled the FCC cannot preempt state net neutrality laws, meaning the rules of the road in states like California remain in place.

The U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee announced their Asia-Pacific and Non-Proliferation Subcommittee will be holding a hearing asking State Department officials and human rights activists to chime in on Human Rights in Kashmir, the Tamils of Sri Lanka, Muslims in Assam and the human rights situation in Pakistan, which includes the Sindh Province.
