Apple Is About to Kick Off iPhone 7 Launch Event – Expectations, Start Time & Streaming Links


Apple's annual product launch event is about to kick off in less than 3 hours. Today we will learn what is next from the technology giant as we look forward to not only seeing a new iPhone 7, but also a new Watch and possibly (please, all of the gods, PLEASE) an upgrade to the MacBook Pro. The keynote is scheduled to start at 10 am PDT at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. As we impatiently await the event to kick off in about a couple of hours, here is what we are expecting, and how you can catch the live streaming on your own devices.

Don't hate the new iPhone - not yet, at least

The Apple 2016 event will focus on the upgrades of its iPhones. iPhone 7 is the upcoming upgrade from Apple, and isn't expected to be a major update. Amid criticism of Apple sending consolatory upgrades to iPhones every year, with a poor camera and screen, many were hoping for a massive update to confront Samsung's increasing influence (before the Note 7 fiasco). If nothing else, Apple is rumored to bring a better battery, faster processor, and possibly a dual-lens camera for iPhone 7 Plus. The one thing that is almost certain is the lack of headphone jack. Several rumors and reports have pointed that Apple is ditching the traditional headphone jack - a design change that many have criticized.

Apart from the stars of the event, Apple is also expected to launch Apple Watch 2 with a better battery. While reports have suggested that upgrades to MacBook Pro will be released at a later date this year, we can't stop praying for it. MacBook Pro has long waited for a revision, and we surely hope we get to see it today.

As always, we can't be sure if Apple decides to launch something totally surprising and do away with expected releases. While new iPhones are surely coming today, what else Apple has got can only be seen when the event starts. New accessories, iPad Air 3, 5K display? There could be so many one more things!
