At a glitzy event tonight, Apple took the wraps off the iPhone 7 and the larger iPhone 7 Plus. Apple also unveiled the second-generation of its smartwatch, the Watch Series 2. As is the case every year, this is among the biggest and most awaited tech events in a calendar year.

It looked like people were sitting ready with their smartphones in their hands to pass their critics at every announcement that Apple made. Within seconds of the unveiling, people immediately took to the internet to share their satisfaction or disappointment with the launch. While some were impressed by the launch, some expected Apple to have done better. Also Read - Apple adds UPI, RuPay, net banking on App Store: How to add new payment methods

 

 

 

 

 

At the same time, US Presidential candidate Donald Trump thought it wise to comment on the Apple event last night as well.

Besides the new iPhones, Apple also unveiled the next-generation Apple Watch Series 2. And people had quite mixed reaction towards it.

 

 

Design: Apple more or less retained the old design of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus with the new iPhones. Clearly social media was expecting a little more out of Apple in terms of design. Although the new iPhone have been made water resistant, Apple fans were expecting a waterproof design.

 

However, some seemed satisfied with the new upgrades.

Apple this time also released a new jet black color in the new iPhones. And oh boy does it look good!

Demise of 3.5mm audio jack: Re-asserting the rumors, Apple has dropped the 3.5mm audio jack in favor of the lightning port. Along with that it also announced its first ever truly wireless headphones called AirPods, and the first reactions from people weren t all that great.

 

 

 

 

TouchID: Apple has done an impressive job at revamping its Touch ID feature, which has been now replaced with a physical clickable button with a capacitive fingerprint scanner, and naturally the social media is celebrating this change.

 

Battery: Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus finally come with a larger battery. Although Apple claims that iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have bigger battery life ever on iPhones, but it also announced that the new iPhones battery would last just about two hours longer, which of course isn’t enough.

 

 

Interestingly, Apple, along with Nintendo is now also bringing Super Mario Run to the App Store and the highly popular augmented reality game, Pokemon GO, is coming to the Apple Watch soon. Also read: Apple iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus India price to start from Rs 60,000; launching on October 7
