iPhone 7: Specs & features expected for Apple’s next flagship

A new dual-camera system, storage and RAM upgrades, a tweaked physical design, and possibly the Smart Connector that debuted on Apple’s iPad Pro line. Those are just a few of the upgrades possibly expected for Apple’s next flagship iPhone lineup, not to mention a lot of discussion over what it has planned for its bundled headphones now that it’s expected to ditch the old 3.5mm headphone jack with iPhone 7. Here’s what we know so far.

2016 MacBooks: Everything we know about Apple’s upcoming laptop updates

Following Apple’s iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro launch last month, the MacBook lineup is next up for major product updates from Apple. What needs upgrading? All MacBooks are approaching or passing the one year mark since last being updated — MacBook Airs in March of last year, the new 12-inch MacBook in April, and the Retina MacBook Pros in March and May. But where might the new machines leave the rest of the lineup?

Samsung, LG, & others show off new devices at MWC ahead of Apple’s iPhone 5se event

MWC-2016

It’s Mobile World Congress this week in Barcelona, which means most of Apple’s competitors are unveiling their upcoming smartphone lineups that will inevitably compete with Apple’s own 2016 lineup.

But while we usually have to wait until the fall for a new iPhone from Apple, this year is different in that Apple’s event planned for early next month will likely see it unveil the much anticipated iPhone 5se, a rare non-flagship and mid-year iPhone upgrade that will be a low to mid-tier smartphone competitor at pricing that will take over the current iPhone 5s lineup around $450 off contract. 

Among the announcements: Samsung has officially announced its Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge smartphones — both with a similar premium metal and glass design as previous generations but with upgraded internals — while LG showed off its all-new metal modular design for its new flagship LG G5. Also on show this week is a new smartphone flagship from Acer that offers an impressive 1TB of hybrid local/cloud storage, HTC’s One X9, and a trio of Xperia X smartphones from Sony, two with high camera specs including predictive focus.

Apart from smartphones, VR is a big focus at the show this week with just about every big smartphone maker with a related product coming this year. Samsung is showing its Gear 360 consumer-friendly 360-degree camera coming later this year, Analogix has a new smartphone/tablet chip that allows staggering 4K @ 60fps output via USB-C for VR & big-screen use, and HTC announced a $799 Vive Consumer Edition. This is of course a space we’re watching closely as we hear more chatter about Apple’s possible behind the scenes work on VR products.

And Apple is also planning to introduce its iPad Air 3 next month, which will inevitably go up against the new tablets being announced at MWC this week from its Android competitors.

Head below for a roundup of all of our MWC coverage courtesy of our sister site 9to5Google:

Poll: Will you buy the upcoming 4-inch iPhone 5se?

IPhone-lineup-2016

With Apple’s much rumored upcoming iPhone 5se on the horizon— an upgraded version of the iPhone 5S that retains the 4-inch display size for diehard fans of the model— we want to find out if you plan on upgrading when the new device launches. That’s the question we ask in today’s poll, in addition to what device you’re upgrading from (or downgrading, depending on how you look at it). 

There are a few things to consider unlike usual Apple and iPhone product launches. It looks like the iPhone 5se, as we previously reported is the current plan for the device’s moniker, will break up Apple’s usual fall release schedule with a mid-year iPhone refresh. It will also be unusual in that Apple is releasing an upgraded model of an already aging iPhone, the iPhone 5S. The thought is that the model will cater specifically to diehard fans of the smaller 4-inch display that was last included in a flagship model with the iPhone 5S. It will also get the usual upgraded internals— new processors, cameras on par with the iPhone 6, NFC, upgraded Bluetooth, Wi-Fi chips, etc— and color options that resemble Apple’s current iPhone 6s lineup. 

But apart from the 4-inch display, will the upgrades that the 5se packs in be enough for you to upgrade from your current 4-inch iPhone, or perhaps even make the switch from a larger iPhone model?

And will it matter that Apple isn’t planning to make the iPhone 5se part of its most advanced, top of the line iPhone lineup— Apple is planning a design that is said to closer resemble the old 5S than the newer, rounder design of the current iPhones apart from cover glass with more modern curved edges. And adding to that, it might not exactly be the most desirable or freshest design for an iPhone around, especially by the time the iPhone 7 inevitably drops sometime later this year in the fall. Also keep in mind, as we noted in our original report, that Apple plans to discontinue the current 5s with the 5se available around the same price points. 

Apple is currently planning on using its March Apple Watch 2 and iPad Air 3 press event to also introduce the new iPhone 5se and likely announce shipping and availability details.

So are you planning on upgrading to the iPhone 5se? And will you be upgrading from the 4-inch iPhone you’re currently using? Switching from a larger iPhone now that Apple has a new 4-inch model? Or holding off to see what iPhone 7 has to offer?

New reports claim to share details of upcoming iPhones, 4-inch specs, waterproofing & more

60-iPhone-AP

Two new reports today from publications with mixed track records claim to share details of Apple’s upcoming iPhone lineup including the much rumored 4-inch iPhone “6c” and plans for the company to bring waterproofing and other new hardware features to future iPhone models. 

The first report comes from Chinese blog MyDrivers and claims to have more specs for an upcoming 4-inch iPhone 6c courtesy of what they call reliable supply chain sources. Specifically, the report claims the new device will have a 1642mAh battery, which is notably larger than Apple’s latest 4-inch iPhone, the iPhone 5c. In addition, the site backs up other recent reports noting an A9 processor, 16GB of storage, Touch ID, and 2GB of RAM as other specs reportedly planned for the device.

If Apple is to introduce the new 4-inch iPhone 6c (or whatever they decide to call it), it’s possible it could arrive at the company’s next press event that we reported earlier this month that is currently scheduled for March.

In a separate report today, this one from Chinese publication Commercial Times (via Digitimes), Apple is reportedly planning waterproofing features for upcoming iPhones. The detail is mentioned in a report on Apple supplier Catcher Technology, which going into next year will “remain as the largest chassis supplier for Apple’s upcoming new iPhone products.” 

It doesn’t specify which new models if not all would receive the waterproofing, but adds that upcoming iPhones will also receive a “new compound materials to hide the antenna”, which has been unsightly on recent iPhone designs.
