Apple announced their new products today, including the iPhone 7.
It looks similar to past iPhone models but some of the changes and new features includes:
- water resistance
- dual cameras
- stereo speakers
- there is no headphone jack
- a redesigned home button
- new jet black color
- updated displays that are 25 percent brighter
What do you think about it? Are you planning on getting one?

Why do they keep putting out a new phone every year that's only a slightly modified from the version before it, making all the older versions basically obsolete? I personally think it's a ploy to get you to have to buy the upgrade since eventually they stop carrying the older iphone components like chargers, cases, etc. I had a 4S which was fine, but when I could no longer find anything I needed for it, I upgraded to a 5S, which will soon be out, too, even though it still works perfectly fine and I actually prefer the smaller screen size. Sigh.5

Tons of Android phones are water resistant
I'd rather have one camera with higher megapixel then another camera which has optical zoom
I have an external speaker. i don't need this
Wide color gamut (apple website says)
No headphone jack
You pay 300 dollars on contract for this phone and then you have to pay even more money to get apple headphones and you can't use the ones you already have. Fuck that.
Redesigned home button
Redesigned how? Better? Worse? I'll admit, if they brought the scroll wheel back that would be pretty cool.
Jet black color
I couldn't care less. My 300 dollar phone (300 dollars OFF contract) is jet black. Budget smartphones are jet black.
Great. Wasn't aware the old display wasn't bright enough
Apple is being a lot greedier then I thought they would be given the tough competition from Samsung. Forcing people to buy their headphones now. If I was Apple I would become less exclusive, not more.
A lot of the features they are introducing are gimmicks. And a lot of features have been a mainstay on android phones for a while now.
I will definitely not be getting one. I think it's a waste of money. Just wait until the Iphone 8 comes out and they make a big deal out of adding the headphone jack again.
