Apple’s launch event on September 7th gave us news of some major improvements to several of their devices, most notably the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.

Other potentially exciting inclusions were the next generation of Apple Watches, Air Pods (a kind of wireless ear bud headphones) and increased collaboration with other large brands such as Nintendo and Nike.

The iPhone 7’s highlight for us was the camera improvements. The previous versions excellent quality camera has yet again been re-engineered with improved functionality and quality. The plus version features 2 lenses, 1 of which can be used for optical zoom.
