Apple set to focus on iPhone at September 7 event

Phones
Apple's next big event is happening September 7 here at the [UNKNOWN] Auditorium in San Fransisco. Senior writer for CNET Shara Tibken is here to give us the inside scoop of what's going down. So Shara, it's all about the hardware at this event in September, we're talking iPhone 7, what else can we see? Yes, so well, we're definitely gonna see the iPhone 7, it's time for Apple to refresh their smartphone line. We also are thinking we're gonna hear about the new Apple Watch. So this will be the second generation of their device. The last one they announced almost two years ago and it came out last spring. So we're really looking for an update with that. I want to talk a bit about the actual invitation itself. So the invite is a little bit cryptic. There's some bokeh, like the out of focus areas. Of a photograph, kind of hinting possibly at that camera. We've seen a lot of rumors about a dual lens camera for the iPhone 7. What's the likelihood of that being a part of the new handset. Yeah, so a camera update is a definite. Whether we get the dual lenses we'll see on Wednesday. There's talk that that will only be in the higher end plus version. [INAUDIBLE] Which, right now, the plus version of the iPhone has a better camera than the regular one. So if you're going for the bigger device, you know? It's more expensive. But you're definitely getting better photos with that. So apart from the camera, what are the other rumors pointing at in terms of features that might appear on the next iPhone? Yeah, so some of the features we're hearing about are things that rivals like Samsung already have. One of those is waterproofing, so you'll be able to take this into water for longer. Also a pressure sensitive home button is something. Also Apple could bump up the amount of storage, so instead of 16GB for the cheapest version, you could get 32GB. So there's also been a lot of talk about Apple ditching the headphone jack in the iPhone 7. Now, if this comes to fruition and we actually see that there is no headphone jack Do you think other vendors are gonna follow suit? Is Apple kinda gonna lead the charge in this area? We've already seen some other people do that. And you've even seen Samsung and some of these other guys release new headphones that are specifically bluetooth. I think that this is probably the future, as much as we all may hate it at first. So I, you know I think we'll see that from Apple and I think we'll see it from other people too. Char, thank you so much and make sure to stay tuned to CNET. COM from nine AM pacific on September seventh for our live show, and ten AM for the keynote itself. [SOUND]
