Apple didn’t just introduce its next generation of iPhones, but also launched Airpods — wireless earphones — and the Apple Watch Series 2. Starting at a price of Rs 60,000 (for 32 GB internal storage), the iPhone 7 will be available in India from “October 7” with the better battery life, stereo speakers and processing speeds.

iPhone 7 and 7 Plus

Apple’s new iPhone is getting a faster processor, an updated home button and water and dust protection. Apple says the iPhone 7’s home button is now force sensitive. It will provide “haptic” feedback — that “pushing back” feeling — when you press it, but the button itself doesn’t move. It’s similar to what Apple has done with a trackpad in a slimmer MacBook model last year. The iPhone 7 will have stereo speakers for the first time, with twice the volume of iPhone 6S speakers. The phone’s battery life is improved, too; Apple estimates that the new iPhones will have one or two hours of additional battery life over last year’s models.
