It is Sunday today, which means it is high time I told you about the most interesting posts of the last couple of days. Let’s not waste time and have a look at the articles worth your attention right now.
Aside from letting us know about the internals of the iPhone 7 Plus, the iFixit team has also performed a teardown of the Apple Watch Series 2 that went on sale in a number of countries together with new iPhones.
As noted by the experts, the smartwatch is much better protected from water. Furthermore, it has a new OLED display with integrated Force Touch, updated GPS, NFC, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, and Bluetooth 4.0 hardware. There’s also a new S2 chip, better 273 mAh battery as well as some other improved components. The size of the wearable device is the same as the one the original Apple Watch has.
The smartwatch is packed with small parts, so disassembling it is quite a tough task. Similar to the first-generation Apple Watch, the 2016 model is rather difficult to repair, so its repairability score is 6 out 10.
Below you can take a look at the video and several photos of the teardown posted by iFixit.
The iFixit team has recently performed a teardown of the long-awaited iPhone 7 Plus revealing the internal component layout as well as the repairability of the handset.
According to the experts, the phone has the size of 158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3 mm and opens up to the side. The device features a 2900 mAh battery and is perfectly protected from water and dust. There’s also a new A10 processor, 3GB of RAM and other hardware enhancements. Surprisingly, even despite these things, it is quite easy to disassemble the iPhone 7 Plus. The repairability score is 7 of 10, where 10 is the easiest to repair.
Below you can take a look at the video and photos showing the teardown process of the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus.
As promised, Apple on Tuesday released iOS 10 to users worldwide. The latest major update contains a number of noticeable design changes, new features, and security enhancements for compatible iPhones and iPads.
Below you can take a look at the main fields of improvements found in iOS 10.
Several new unboxing photos of the Jet Black iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have been recently spotted online. Aside from giving us a closer look at the handsets, they reveal that Jet Black devices come in black retail boxes. The photos, which are available below, have been shared by a user nicknamed shuo0521 on Feng and seem to show genuine phones.
As you know, both iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus feature improved cameras that should take incredible shots under any conditions. Below you can take a look at several images shot by Sports Illustrated photographer David E. Klutho showing how the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus performs in the daylight. The photos were taken last Sunday, several days before the release of the smartphone. They give some highlights from the Titans-Vikings game and point to the quality of new dual sensor included in the device.
According to the latest report shared by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the dual camera will likely be an exclusive option of the high-end 5.5-inch iPhone next year. The main reason for this is the price of the new sensor. Currently, the dual camera module costs over $30-40 and adding it to the smaller model will mean that Apple either increases the selling price or loses money.
A new video has recently appeared on the Internet showing what appears to be a thinner display for the upcoming Apple Watch 2 and a slightly thicker battery for the device. The video comes from a site called Byte.co.uk and is available below.
According to a new leaked image showing the retail packaging for the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus, the device may come with new “AirPods Wireless Earphones”. First rumors about Apple’s plans to ditch the traditional headphone jack appeared on the Internet this spring, but so far, nobody could tell for sure if the company was planning to ship new accessories with phones or sell them separately. Now it appears that the wireless headphones will be included in the iPhone 7 Plus package, whereas the smaller handset will be sold with EarPods and a special adapter. However, it should be noted that these are only rumors and suggestions.
According to the image posted on Twitter, the base model of the iPhone 7 will feature 32GB of storage. This means that starting this year, buying an entry-level model will actually make sense as the user will not necessarily run out of storage in the first two weeks of using the smartphone.
According to the latest report from a Japanese website Macotakara, the next-generation iPhone will come in a new color, namely, Gloss Black. The shade is similar to the color the Mac Pro has. Earlier this year, first rumors about the device have appeared on the Internet suggesting that Apple may be planning to discontinue the Space Gray iPhone and introduce a new shade.
Several new images have been recently spotted on the Internet showing what appears to be a battery for the Apple Watch 2. The leaked part seems to have a larger capacity, which means that the wearable device may become much more portable compared to its predecessor. In particular, the capacity of the new battery is 36% higher than that of the first-generation Apple Watch.
Several images showing what appears to be a retail packaging for the rumored iPhone 6SE have been recently spotted on the Internet. Even though the images may be fake, they go in line with the rumor that surfaced online back in July. According to this rumor, the next-generation iPhone will be called the iPhone 6SE, not the iPhone 7 as many expect.
I recommend to take the photos with a few pinches of salt as there are some inconsistencies.
GeekBar has recently posted a couple of new images showing what appears to be an assembled front panel for the upcoming iPhone 7. The leaked part is slightly different from the component used in the iPhone 6s. Notably, there is no cutout for the physical Home button. Keeping in mind that the release of the updated handset is just around the corner, we may assume that the screen assembly is genuine and no different from the one that will be used in actual handsets.
Several new high-resolution photos have appeared on the Internet that show the gold 4.7-inch iPhone 7 and 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus or Pro with dual camera. The insiders claim the photos are legitimate.
