With the news hitting Singapore eyes and ears this morning, everyone is already buzzing about Apple’s new launches, just announced in San Francisco.

Come September, we can all look forward to getting our hands on (or trying to anyway) the new iPhone 7. This latest model promises brand new offerings including a dual camera, stereo speakers as well as being water and dust resistance. Here are a few more things to look forward to:

Design upgrade

Bad news for space grey fans — that colour is no more. In its place however will be black and jet black — available for both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7s.

Audio enhancements

The new iPhone 7 boasts sound two times better than the iPhone 6s. Now with stereo sound, it offers perfect sound for any video or song you might be listening to with friends.

Of course the biggest news in audio enhancements are the brand new AirPods. Now wireless, you’ll never find yourself untangling headphones again. The phone will also come with a 3.5mm headphone jack adapter allows you to use your old headphones and accessories.

Camera upgrades

The big upgrade for cameras is reserved on the iPhone 7 plus, which features a dual camera – a 12-megapixel wide angle camera, plus a 12-megapixel telephoto lens that offers ten times the zoom for photos. The new camera also has a new f1.8 aperture and six-element lens, with optical image stabilisation, allowing longer exposure for better images in low light.

The dual camera on the iPhone 7 plus will offer amazing zoom power, while maintaining the crisp and clean quality that you want.

Water and dust resistant

Given how much we use our phones these days, upping its ability to withstand a bit more wear and tear is a great move. Now you won’t have to keep that bag of rice around just to dry out your phone from an accidental dipping. Dust will also not be an issue thanks to the all-new reengineered enclosure.

The water resistant feature will allow you to use your phone in the rain without any worries.

Be sure to check out Apple’s many videos to see all these features in action. There are also a bunch of spanking new iPhone cases to have a gander at — just in case you feel you need that added protection.

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be available in silver, gold, rose gold and the new black finish in 32GB, 128GB and 256GB starting at S$1,048. The new jet black finish will be offered exclusively on the 128GB and 256GB models.

Customers will be able to order iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus beginning Friday, 9 September, with availability beginning Friday, 16 September.
