-New details on the new iPhone. Every time Apple announces a new iPhone, the world loses its collective mind. The new iPhone 7 is no exception. The newest, water-resistant iteration of the iPhone will be available for pre-order starting September 9th and will formally launch on September 16th. For those of you interested in the new iPhone 7, here are some details you'll need to know. The headphone jack has been officially ditched and will be paired instead with wireless AirPods. The iPhone 7 also comes in a larger iPhone 7 Plus, costing $649 and $759 respectively. Colors include matte black, glossy black, rose gold, silver and gold. The front-facing "selfie" cam on the iPhone 7 has been upgraded to 7 megapixels, so now your selfies will be even sexier! Check out more details on the iPhone 7 release here.
-GoPro Karma to shake up the drone industry. Drone photography and videography is a quickly expanding market and now action-camera veteran GoPro is getting their beak wet. The GoPro Karma was announced via a few sly little trailers that don't actually feature the drone itself, but rather footage captured from the drone... and it looks (and sounds) beautiful! The trailer seems to suggest that the GoPro Karma will be a relatively small drone, capable of small adjustments in its flight path. Also, judging by the trailer, it seems as though the GoPro Karma has mastered the art of capturing audio from a drone: it's impossible to hear any propellers in the video, but you can still perfectly hear audio from the subjects being filmed. Keep an eye out for the new GoPro Karma videography drone later in the month of September.
-Sony introduces PlayStation 4 Pro. Starting on November 10, Sony will roll out the new PlayStation 4 Pro for $399 and a slimmer version of the PS4 for $299 on September 15.
