Apple will launch the iPhone 7 in 2016 and that's just a few months away so is it worth it to wait or buy the latest iPhone that are now out in the market (iPhone 6S and 6S Plus). There are plenty of rumours about next year's iPhone 7 and they are big. It seems Apple has big plans for the iPhone 7.
KnowYourMobile.com said that the iPhone 7 will have revolutionary features that will be ocmpletely different from the current models. Designer Hasan Kaymak put up an iPhone 7 concept without a home button that will allow it to have a display with no edges. See, his video clip below.
Tech blogs also said that the iPhone 7 will have significantly better water resistance that the current iPhones. Apple is also set to join Samsung, Sony and LG with the wireless charging based on Apple's patent (Inductive Power Transfer Using Acoustic or Haptic Devices) applications published yesterday by the US Patent and Trademark Office.
Apple iPhones can't do wireless charging since it has aluminum case. Wireless-charging handsets use plastic casing so that power can reach the batteries. However, Qualcomm introduced last July a new wireless charger that works through metal cases.
It is also rumored that the iPhone 7 will be powered by an Intel chip with a "hexa-core" processor that will significantly improve speed and power. It will even have a better camera.
Apple may dual-source the LTE modems in its new iPhones from both Intel and Qualcomm. Currently, Qualcomm’s 9X45 LTE chip is use in all iPhone modems.
If money is not an issue, then go ahead get an iPhone 6S or 6S Plus. But, if you need to save before you can buy a new and amazing phone well it's worth it to wait and just use your old phone.

Apple packed the 21.5-inch iMac with a stunning 4K-resolution display, along with faster processors and Thunderbolt 2. The company also made the "Retina 5K" screens standard on all its larger 27-in. models. They have also redesigned the keyboard, mouse and trackpad which are all equipped with rechargeable batteries and lightning connectors.
Apple debuted a 21.5-in. iMac with a Retina display of 4096-x-2304-pixel resolution at just $1,499, which is far from the $2,499 Retina 5K iMac when it was introduced while the lower priced is at $1,999.
The 21.5-inch iMac is powered by a quad-core 3.1GHz Intel Core i5 processor (older "Broadwell" line) with 8GB of RAM. It has an integrated GPU (graphics processor unit) from Intel and lots of storage space at 1TB hard disk drive. The processors are still one generation behind Intel's latest and there are no discrete graphics options. No HDMI input means it can't double as a TV monitor.
