Everything Apple Announced at Today's iPhone 7 Event in Under Five Minutes

Apple today hosted a jam-packed media event that saw the debut of its new fall products, including the iPhone 7, the iPhone 7 Plus, the Apple Watch Series 2, new AirPods, and new Beats headphones.

It took Apple two hours to cover all of the new products and their impressive features, but we've created a quick five minute recap for those of you who want a taste of what Apple announced without watching the entire keynote or reading all of our extensive coverage.


Highlights include water and dust resistance for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, along with a faster A10 Fusion processor, all new camera systems for much better images (including a dual-camera system for the iPhone 7 Plus), no headphone jack, and two new colors being sold alongside the standard Silver, Gold, and Rose Gold - a matte "Black" and a glossy "Jet Black."

As for the Apple Watch Series 2, it too features improved waterproofing to make it suitable for swimming, along with a new GPS chip and a processor that's twice as fast. To make up for the lack of a headphone jack in the iPhone 7, Apple also introduced new wireless Beats headphones and completely wireless "AirPods," both of which come equipped with an Apple-designed W1 wireless chip.

Make sure to stay tuned to MacRumors for more extensive coverage of all of Apple's new products and check out our event recap post for more detail on everything that's new.

The iPhone 7, the iPhone 7 Plus, and the Apple Watch Series 2 will be available for pre-order this Friday. Apple's New AirPods will be available in October.

I tried to watch the keynote and I hated it and turned it off. So cringey, salesy, cheesy and amateurish. It was a joke, like a two bit sales presentation that was painful and dull to watch. "You're going to love it" No, apple. I'm not.

Wow, lets get excited about a watch that tells you where you ran. No, lets not. apple has lost the plot, up it's own a hole.

It's amazing how vast majority of commenters on MacRumors now are so negative towards Apple. Why don't you guys go troll android forums or something?

I'm not saying we should blindly praise Apple, but I mean come on...

Lots of negativity in this thread.
Do I stand alone in being impressed with the innovations and upgrades within the Apple watch and iPhone?

Nothing to scream from the rooftops, yet pleasant refinements and improvements to both products overall.

Cook is terrible. Just plain awful boring. Try to pretend you are excited, please!

What a nightmare!

If Steve Jobs was still alive we would still have a headphone jack.


No, the headphone jack would have been gotten rid of 2 yrs ago.

I wish the keynote was 5 minutes. The start was so disjointed and awkward.
