We continue our iPhone 7 tests this week including a closer look at the new iPhone 7 Plus Portrait mode in the iOS 10.1 beta.
iPhone 8 rumors start flowing in with one report from supply chain analysts that the 2017 iPhone could feature glass on both the front and back with a stainless steel option for premium models. That while less reliable sources indicate that Apple is currently using the “iPhone 8” moniker internally to refer to the device.
We move onto to reports that Apple is targeting an October launch for its much anticipated MacBook Pro refresh expected to include a slimmer design and an OLED touch panel built-in to the keyboard.
We finish off with Jeff’s breakdown on which iPhone 7 model you should buy and hands-on with the new white ceramic Edition model Apple Watch in this week’s top videos.
