iPhone 7 Launch: Has Apple Lost Its Innovative Drive?

Wazzup Pilipinas!
"Water resistant, dual camera, with stereo speakers, no more wired headphones and... (finally) a longer battery life. I just don't know how long is "longer" but that "jet black" is so sexy." - MJ De Leon
"Wow! Guys!! The new iPhone is water resistant!! This is amazing, no other company have ever done this, Apple was the first!! <--- This is what I think the iTards are saying right now."- IJ Torres
"When will people accept the power of this brand? It's the iPhone vs. countless Android high end/midrange/China brands...but still winning?" - James De Guzman
September 7, 2016 was a big day in the tech world, as Apple held its annual launch event, where the iPhone 7 was revealed. The event was held at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco and was led by Tim Cook, CEO of Apple. The launch was said to be ordinary, except the wireless earpods, nothing was new and impressive. Many were disappointed because there was no real change from iPhone 6 or 6s. Has Apple lost its innovative drive?

I just loved the new double camera on the 7Plus... city pictures gonna get better! To say it challenges DSLR's is simply not true. First gen 1DS will still outperform an iPhone. It is simply the convenience. But the same feature is offered by the LG G5. It isn't a new feature. However, LG can't in-trench smoothness of system like iOS. Also, If you love double cameras you have to try new Hauwei P9 and Galaxy S7.

The new iPhone camera uses IPS Technology which performs 100 Billion operations every time we capture a photo within just 25 Milliseconds! This is really a supercomputer for phone camera.

How excited can one possibly get when the most talked about new feature of the world's most exciting smartphone manufacturer is the 'absence of a headphone jack'?! Lol!

Apple has ditched the headphone socket, this means that users will experience whole new wireless headphones. The wireless "AirPods" give 5 hours of listening time and charged within the case! Just plugin the lightning cable to the case. This headphone jack is a big disappointment. Millions of people still use corded headphones you know. It will include an adapter in the box, anyway so it's time to get with it then!!

The new Mario game is like a cross between Temple Run and a traditional side scrolling Mario game.

The new iWatch now comes with Pokémon Go, downloaded more than 500 million times. Trainers have walked more than 4.6 billion kilometers while playing.
