iPhone 7

As expected, Apple has taken the wraps off of its next-generation iPhones attoday's September product event. Apple confirmed the devices on Twitter with a post about the water-resistant nature of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The post came down quickly as today's event rolled on, but it is screenshotted below.
The company later revealed the new devices would come in 32GB, 128 GB, and 256GB sizes. Prices start at $649/£599 for the iPhone 7 and $769/£719 for the iPhone 7 Plus. Pre-orders begin on Friday, September 9, and devices will ship on Friday, September 16. iOS 10 will arrive on September 13 to support the new releases.
Perhaps as headline-grabbing, Apple also unveiled a new accessory to account for the disappearance of an analogue audio jack from its new devices. The new phones will come with Lightning-connecting earbuds and an adapter for 3.5mm headphones, but Apple will be pushing wireless headphones through a product called AirPods (sold separately from the iPhones for $159/£159; they arrive in October).
In addition to the waterproof nature of the devices, Apple tweeted about the new camera setup before again removing the posts. The iPhone 7 Plus will feature a dual-camera setup providing "high optical res zoom at 2x." The iPhone 7 will not include the dual-setup, rather it will feature a 12MP camera that is "low-light-loving, optical-image-stabilizing, [and] wide color," according to the post.
