The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, with new camera technology, water resistance and other features, were unveiled at a media event in San Francisco.
One new feature which may upset some consumers is the removal of the headphone jack, requiring audio to be delivered via Apple’s proprietary “lightning” connector or by wireless.
“From the start we designed lightning to be a great audio connector,” Apple vice president Phil Schiller told the unveiling event.
“We are taking the headphones in iPhone 7 and 7 Plus to lightning, and including them in the box with the device. We have also made an adaptor, which will be included in the box as well.
