iPhone 7: Our staff predictions -- and a Bingo card!

Prop bets and Bingo card add to Apple iPhone 7 announcement fun

Apple’s annual iPhone event is mere hours away, but the rumor mill has, true to form, been churning busily away for months. So there’s no shortage of information, spurious or otherwise, about the forthcoming announcements from San Francisco.

And Apple has been a bit more predictable in recent years, hasn’t it? There’s going to be at least one uplifting video presentation with aspirational music playing in the background, CEO Tim Cook is going to use words like “magical” and “journey” a lot, and he’ll show us some cool new iPhones.

Given this relative predictability, a few of us here at Network World have decided to put our money where our mouths are. Here are predictions from community editor Michelle Davidson, online executive news editor Bob Brown, blogger and Apple expert Yoni Heisler, video raconteur and editor Keith Shaw and myself, senior writer Jon Gold.

We’ll update this post after the event, to see which of us had the best answers. But if you need a little bit of side entertainment during the Apple event yourself, we’ve even got you a bingo card that you can use to follow along as Tim and friends take us on a magical journey of innovation and delight. Download it here.

We’ll have full coverage right here on Network World, so check with us before, during and after the event for wraps, analysis and more.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
