Apple announced its newest iPhones, the 7 and 7 Plus, which are water and dust resistant. Apple's next iPhones will also come without the analog headphone jack that's been standard on iPhones and most other electronic devices for years.
Much of the anticipation around the event Wednesday centers on the phone’s headphone jack. The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this year that Apple planned to eliminate the 3.5-millimeter jack, to make the phone thinner and improve its water resistance. Critics panned the idea, but some believe the move may push the technology industry into more widespread adoption of wireless headphones.
Analysts had speculated that the new models would have two camera lenses—to improve image quality, particularly on wide-angle and close-up shots—and a pressure-sensitive home button, incorporating technology used in Apple Watch.(s: msn/independent)
