In this week’s top stories: Apple unveils the iPhone 7, Apple Watch 2, and its new wireless AirPods, and we fill you in on everything you need to know about the new devices.
Apple officially took the wraps off iPhone 7 and Apple Watch 2 this week. We brought you our usual live coverage of the event where the company also unveiled its new wireless cord-free AirPod earbuds and more.
How did Apple address the removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack in the new iPhones? It’s bundling a 3.5mm to Lightning adapter and new Lightning EarPods in the box for every iPhone 7, but its new wireless AirPods will arrive later in October for a premium.
