The iPhone 7 has arrived ...possesses an absurd feature

Apple has released the next generation of the iPhone at its annual event in San Francisco today - the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. At a launch event Wednesday night, the company revealed an upgraded iPhone that, while aesthetically similar to the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, has several big differences, including a pressure-sensitive home button, better camera, a faster processor and improved battery life, as well as having no headphone jack.

Instead of the traditional headphone connection, iPhone packages will now come with earphones that fit into the phone's Lightning port, currently used for charging and data transfer. The bigger "Plus" model has an even-more powerful "dual-lens" camera.

One of the most controversial decisions has been to remove the headphone jack,  instead shipping the phone with a pair of Lightning EarPods - which connect through the charging port - and wireless Apple AirPods, powered by a W1 chip. Infared sensors detect when each pod is in your ear and motion sensors control the headphones to use Siri and detect your voice.

Apple's new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are water resistant, come in new shades of black, and have improved cameras. The larger iPhone has two side-by-side12-megapixel cameras. One is wide angle and one is telephoto. It gives users 2x optical zoom and 10x digital zoom. The smaller iPhone 7 still has one, lonely camera on the back. The cameras on both phones have been updated with optical image stabilizer, a new lens and a 12 megapixel sensor that's faster. The flash has four LEDs and can detect the flickers of artificial lighting to better compensate.

The device is waterproof up to 50 meters deep. To make it waterproof, Apple changed the speaker design so after a swim, surf, or bubble bath, it can expel any water automatically. 

The Home button is force sensitive. Instead of knowing you pressed the button because it clicked, it will vibrate. Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller said the revolutionary new button is "creating new feelings and experiences that could not have been created before."

The iPhone 7 now comes in two new colours: a high gloss jet black finish and a matte black. It's also still available in gold, silver and rose gold. The phones will ship with iOS 10. Existing iPhones can upgrade to the new mobile OS on September 13.The new iPhones will be available September 16 and start at $649 (almost N292,000)
