Apple has unveiled its latest iPhone and also a new iPad. The new iPad was unveiled on Tuesday by the tech giant, and the iPad will go on sale for $329 only.


The new iPad will feature a 9.7 inch screen, A9 processing chip and a battery that would last up to 10hours.

While iPhone 7 is looking to be released today, Samsung Galaxy note 7 is being recalled back after numerous battery explosion. The flight has now been considered a flight risk.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a statement on Thursday  that “strongly advises passengers not to turn on or charge these devices on board aircraft and not to stow them in any checked baggage.”


The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 have burst into flames for some consumers, and also Florida resident Nathan Dornacher reported earlier in the day that his jeep caught fire while charging it his Samsung phone inside the car.

Three Australian airlines, Quantas, Jetstar and Virgin Australia flights have also banned the charging of Samsung’s $800 waterproof phone-tablet in-flight. 

Though government has not given official directives to the airlines to do so, it was done after Samsung Australia stop sales in one of 10 recall markets, and started exchanging existing models.

The company itself released a statement via their UK company website which note that "based on our investigation, we learned that there was an issue with the battery cell. An overheating of the battery cell occurred when the anode-to-cathode came into contact which is a very rare manufacturing process error.”

"For customers who already have Galaxy Note7 devices, we will voluntarily replace their current device with a new one, beginning on September 19th.

We acknowledge the inconvenience this may cause in the market but this is to ensure that Samsung continues to deliver the highest quality products to our customers. We are working closely with our partners to ensure the replacement experience is as convenient and efficient as possible."


The iPhone 7 is here, though not met with a lot of build up and reception it always get, the launching of the new phone has caused different emotion between the fans of the iPhone products.

The iPhone 7 was unveiled on Wednesday with a high resolution camera, longer battery life than the iPhone 6S, and also water resistant features. The new iPhone 7 also debuts the three-decade-old Nintendo game franchise, Super Mario Bros on the smartphone.


Apple also doubled the storage capacities of the new iPhone, with the entry point starting at 32GB, though no memory card slot as other phones usually adds to their phone products.

The presentation by Tim Cook shows the different new added upgrades done for the iPhone from its Photography, Wireless earphones, Super Mario Bros and also the new Apple watch with fitness features.

The iPhone will also have a new A10 fusion chip, something Phillip Schiller, Apple marketing executive, likened to a "rocket ship". 

Another nice feature of the new iPhone allows you to switch from wide-angle shot to a telephoto.

One of the biggest features that was removed from the iPhone 7 is the standard headphone jack that has not only been on the iPhone, but every other modern phone product out there.

Apple has been known for taking a bold step in removing normal things we are used to, then other companies follow suit. They did it with the optical drives from Mac computers. 

The removal of the iPhone jack has annoyed the iPhone fans, but the company will be supplying free new wired EarPods that connect to the phone’s Lightning connector. This will be the standard for iPhone now, and also user can also use an adapter that will also be included in the iPhone 7 that will allow users to plug in their old earphones to use it.

With the new airpods, Apple is introducing the wireless earphones, which is easy to set up and charge.


In the UK, the Apple starting price will be £599 for the cheapest 32GB. The 128GB iPhone 7 will cost  £699 and the 256GB will cost a whopping £799.

The larger iPhone will cost more.. The starting price for the cheapest 32GB version will cost £719, followed by the 128GB will go for £819, while the 256GB version will cost £919

Apple has reported its first drop in sales and profit on Tuesday. The company dissappointing quarterly report is summed up to the low sale of the iPhone. Apple was only able to sell 51.2million in the quarter, a 16% difference compared to its sale at the same time last year.


Sales were $50.6Billion compared with $58Billion in the same quarter a year ago. Profits were $10.5Billion compared to $13.6Billion of last year. The recent development affected Apple shares 6% to $98.19. 

Analyst predicts things might pick up again as the company plans to release the new iPhone 7 in December.


John McAfee of the McAfee antivirus software on live TV tutored the FBI and everyone on how to crack the iPhone or any other phone out there on National TV, and he did all of it in just 4 minutes. The CEO was asked about the recent iPhone of the San Bernardino attacker which Apple has said can't be unlocked because the FBI already tampered with its security.


Watch the interview here of John McAfee on how to unlock the iPhone security:



The CEO of Apple also said that the logic of the government saying that Apple should make a software that will unlock just 1 iPhone is not true, as the software will be used to open other phones in the future.


Apple is known for being one of the most secretive company when it is about to release a new product/hardware to the market. But, recently, we have heard rumours that the new iPhone 6S/7 are in the pipeline, and we might be buying them come September.

With Samsung new  Samsung Galaxy S6 and  HTC One M9, it is no doubt that the pressure is on, and Apple needs to come up with a special  something for their fans come 2015.

During the recent WWDC, Apple revealed the iOS 9, but what everyone is waiting to see is the new hardware from the tech giant, known for its surprises with different phone releases.

Why fans await for the releases of the iPhone 6S and 7, different rumour has been flying around the different colour, and also the integration of the new Apple watch.

Possible iPhone 7 Release Date

Following Apple phone release traditions on their previously released iPhone like the iPhone 5S and 6, they were both released in September, and Apple might love to do the same for the iPhone 7, taking advantage of the Black Friday and also the Christmas period.

Apple might also release a iPhone 6S and probably an iPhone 6c. 

According to a source that spoke to BuzzfeedApple will follow a repeat process of when they announce the last iPhone on September 9.

The company intends to hold a special event the week of Sept. 7, with Wednesday the 9th being the most likely date, wrote BuzzFeed's John Paczkowski.

If Apple is going to go along that way, the new iPhone 7 should be released on September 9.

iPhone 7 Specs

The new iPhone will come with the latest iOS 9 software. Surprisingly, Samsung will be building the iPhone A9 chip. According to Reuters, 75% of the chip will be made by Samsung, Apple archenemy.

The phone A9 chip is reported to be smaller, allowing for more transistors onto the silicone.

The iPhone battery is one of the best batteries in the smart phone market, but Apple will also build a low power mode into the iOS 9 to allow the battery stays longer than the previous products.

Though Apple has resisted updating the RAM of their smartphones, but the new iPhone maybe come with 2GB of RAM

iPhone 7 Price

iPhone in the past doesn't take it so easy on the pocket before now, and it looks like iPhone 7 will be taking the same highway. According to experts, the new iPhone might set you back £539 for a 16GB model, the price of the current iPhone 6.

The other iPhone 7 with larger storage, that is the 64GB and 128GB, will go for £619 and £699 prices.

iPhone 7 Design And Camera

This are important features the consumers are looking out for in the iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 is set to come with a front-facing camera flash, a feature no other phone manufacturer have come up with, and in this world of selfies, this might come a long way for lovers of selfie.

According to developer Hamza Sood, who discovered some big clue in inside the iOS 9 code, the camera is set to have a 1080p resolution, 240fps slow mo, panoramic capture, flash.


And this will also allow Facetime to run at a full 1080p high definition. The current iPhone 6 and 6plus can only run at 720p definition. This will definitely work for the like of Kim Kardashian and her sisters, as well as other selfie-snappers out there, who prefers using the front camera to the rear camera view.

Another rumour going round is that Apple will be adding a new colour to the iPhone 7 sets, aside from the grey, silver and gold options
