The latest overly priced Apple smartphone, the iPhone 7, has been unveiled with plenty of new features but will they function as planned or blow up like a Samsung battery?

  • New iPhone 7 tipped to recall Airpod Ear Plugs first.
  • Australian sales tipped to be between 1.25 and 1.5 million in Q1 of release.
  • Super Mario game will need more power ups to catch Pokémon Go.

Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has opened betting on the first thing to go belly up with the nifty Airpod Ear Plugs the $1.87 favourite to malfunction.

The iOS 10 update is a $3.00 chance to crash and burn, unlike the battery which is a $7.50 chance alongside the new home button/non-button thing.

Aussie consumers are still expected to flock to get their hands on the latest gismo with a sales count of between 1.25 and 1.5 million tipped at odds of $2.75 for the first quarter of sales.

The other interesting news is of a new Mario game but it’s not expected to worry Pikachu & Co. with Super Mario Run a $5.00 shot to have more users than Pokémon Go on Jan 1st 2017.

“Listen there’s such an uproar over the Airpod Ear Plug that the last thing Apple will want is for any problems when it launches but that’s fallen on deaf ears here at Sportsbet and we reckon there’s a great chance of a recall,’’ saidsportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
