MIDTOWN— You can swim with the new Apple watch on, while the freshly unveiled iPhone 7 is water-resistant and no longer comes with a headphone jack.

The tech giant unveiled their new Airbuds Wednesday, which operate wirelessly with the iPhone7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

The phones will also be louder, with stereo speakers at the top and bottom of the device.

The iPhone7 Plus offers a double front-facing camera lens. It’s designed to provide a better quality zoom for your photos. And the new phones should also allow for better pictures at night.

The iPhone7 will have a battery that lasts 2 hours longer, it will offer double the storage space and it will operate more than 100 times faster than the original iPhone.

A software update will be available to almost all Apple device-users on September 20th. The new software will provide improvements to current Apple applications, including Maps navigation, and it will allow Siri to interact directly with non-Apple applications. Using Siri voice activation, you will be able to ask for a ride using Uber or search for a photo on Pinterest.

The iPhone 7 ranges in price from $649 to $849. The Apple watch starts at $269. Both are available for pre-order on September 9th.
