Apple is expected to show off a new iPhone next week when the company holds its autumn product launch event in San Francisco.
Apple intends to introduce one or two new iPhone models at its annual September event. It may also show new models or features for other products such as the Apple Watch or Macbook computer.
Industry sources expect the new smartphones to have no headphone jack, instead relying on headphones that connect wirelessly through Bluetooth or using the lightning connector. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak said on Thursday that the move was “going to tick off a lot of people”. “I have cars where you can plug in the music, or go through Bluetooth, and Bluetooth just sounds so flat for the same music,” he said
Apple is currently fending off a lawsuit brought by owners of the current iPhone 6 and 6 Plus who claim a design defect is causing the phones’ touch screens to become unresponsive and making them unusable.
“The iPhones are not fit for the purpose of use as smartphones because of the touchscreen defect,” according to the complaint filed in federal court.
This is an exiting time for apple as it sets out to prove yet again that they are the leaders of tech by unveiling the most sofisticated device of its itme, the next iphone. We’ll see how it measures up against such great products as the Nexus 6p and new Galaxy S7
