The 4.7-inch iPhone 7 is available in 32, 128, and 256GB capacities in the United States for $649, $749, and $849, respectively. The 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus is also available in 32, 128, and 256GB options for $769, $869, and $969.

Apple's iPhone Upgrade Program is available in the United States, United Kingdom and China, allowing customers pay a monthly fee for their iPhone 7 with the option of trading it in after 12 months of payments. Pricing, which includes AppleCare+, starts at $32.41 for the iPhone 7 and $37.41 for the iPhone 7 Plus.

Announced earlier this week, the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus feature significant camera improvements, a 4-core A10 Fusion chip, better battery life, water resistance, a revamped pressure-sensitive Home button, stereo sound, new colors, and most controversially, no headphone jack.

Both the Apple Watch Series 1 and the Apple Watch Series 2 will also be available for pre-order. Prices for the Series 1 devices, which include a S2 processor but no other features, start at $269. Prices for the upgraded Apple Watch Series 2, which includes a GPS chip, better waterproofing, and a new display, start at $369.

Please everybody, hate and don't buy the iPhone 7/7 Plus. It is a terrible device, you have to boycott Apple for the missing headphone jack!

We need to stay together! Nobody should be ordering an iPhone 7/7 Plus!

so that I can order mine and get it delivered on release day!

So no 64GB. Another good reason to pass on a new iPhone this year.
Yeah, you get a 128GB for the same price. That would suck.

Alarm set! Series 2 incoming.

P.S. I found some interesting charts:


All iPhone users
#################################

iPhone users who frequently use headphones
#############################

iPhone users who use headphones NOT found in the box already
##########

iPhone users who use WIRED headphones not found in the box
#######

iPhone users who use third party wired headphones and who weren’t going to go wireless soon anyway
####

iPhone users who still won’t go wireless any time soon despite Apple improving wireless while also creating an instant market boom for third parties
##

iPhone users with more than ONE pair of wired headphones
#

iPhone users who care about moving the free 2-inch adapter between multiple wired headphones
|

iPhone users can afford multiple wired headsets they care about, but cannot afford a $9 second adapter so they can avoid the moving the free adapter
,

iPhone users who have this problem now and will have the same problem in a year
.



iPhone users who think they have to charge while using wired headphones with the screen off
###

iPhone users who truly do have to charge while using wired headphones with the screen off, despite the new battery life increases
|

iPhone users who truly have to charge while using wired headphones but cannot afford a small third-party Y-connector that sits on their desk, adding zero additional cables compared to their old way
.



iPhone users who play iPhone audio through their car
###################

iPhone users who play iPhone audio through their car without Bluetooth
#####

iPhone users who play audio through their car without Bluetooth while charging via Lightning-USB
###

iPhone users who play audio through their car without Bluetooth and use a headphone cable because they don’t realize the USB will carry the audio too and allow pause/skip into the bargain
##

iPhone users who play car audio without Bluetooth and aren't just unaware: they truly cannot use USB to carry the audio as well
#

iPhone users who play car audio without Bluetooth, cannot use USB for the audio, and cannot afford a Y-adapter that stays in the car
|

iPhone users who fall into all of those categories, cannot afford a Y-adapter, but who CAN afford this new phone
