The 2016 iPhone is being seen as a modest upgrade – with several analysts noting that it is getting increasingly difficult to make impressive changes in hardware.

Among Apple’s biggest moves are saying goodbye to the headphone jack – and adding a “dual lens” camera to the higher-priced 7 Plus model.

Many longtime Apple users had been complaining on social media about the lack of a headphone jack in the new phones – but Forrester Research analyst Julie Ask says she doesn’t think that will repel prospective iPhone buyers – partly because Apple has a long history of phasing out older technologies.

While Apple announced updates for two of its high-profile products, the iPhone and the Apple Watch – it stayed silent on its tablet and laptop.

Apple has departed from its usual annual upgrade cycle for the iPad, now that it has introduced a few Pro models aimed at professionals who want to get work done on the go.

Tablet users, though, will still be eligible for an operating software upgrade next Tuesday.
