TechCrunch | December 3, 2018 6:03amThis week, Apple revealed the latest addition to its wall-mount speakers line-up, with the new iPhones 7 and 7 Plus.
The new speakers feature a new design that’s reminiscent of the iPhone 6s, but they’ll also be able to be mounted anywhere on the iPhone, and they’ll be able “play all your music, podcasts, and videos” without needing a separate speaker.
The speakers will also have a “glass ceiling” definition, which is the ability for a speaker to be taller than a ceiling, which means they’ll fit on the walls of most homes, and it’ll look even better when the wall is curved or otherwise made of different materials.
Apple says the glass ceiling can also be applied to walls that aren’t covered in paint, which should make the speakers more comfortable to listen to in the dark.
There’s also an updated version of Apple’s wall-covering foam, which Apple says will be able support up to 2,000 pounds of force per square inch, compared to the previous version of the foam, and which can also last for more than 10 years, compared with the previous model.
The speaker’s body is made from anodized aluminum and comes in a variety of colors.
The case itself is made of anodised aluminum and weighs in at 1.6 pounds, compared the previous 2.5 pounds.
The iPhone 7 case has a metal frame, and the iPhone SE case has an aluminum frame.
The speakers have a 2-ohm impedance, the same as on the previous models.
The iPhone 7s comes with a 2,500mAh battery, the iPhone 8 comes with 4,000mAh battery (or 3,500mAH), and the new iPhone XS comes with 7,000 mAh battery.
