Finally, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are released by Apple. At the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, Apple introduced iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Both the phones come with the latest iOS 10 operating system. Let’s talk about the features, specifications and price of this latest Apple device.
With the highest battery capacity among all the versions, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are built with the latest technology and have great features. Check them below:
Design: The design is quite similar to iPhone 6S. It has a same 4.7” display (iPhone 7 Plus has 5.50”) which is an ‘HD Retina screen’ and 25% brighter than the previous model. The pressure sensitive 3D touch layer buzzes at the time you press and hold the screen.
Waterproof: If you always wanted to have a waterproof body of your iPhone, then you will be happy. The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus both has water-resistant bodies of grade IP67 like some other Samsung and Sonydevices. Virginia!
New Front and Back Cameras: The iPhone 7 has a 7MP front camera with an auto-image stabilization feature (Upgraded from the 5MP camera of iPhone 6S). The back camera kept at 12 Megapixels but with an addition of a larger aperture (that will make a difference). The optical image stabilization keeps the image steady. The iPhone 7 Plus has a second, 56mm telephoto lens on the backside (it will work with a built-in zoom feature).
Static Home Button: The home button is now pressure sensitive in a solid state. It includes ‘taptic feedback’ which means you can add three levels of pressure and ‘haptic feedback’ as a buzz or light to your apps. You don’t need to press or click it physically which will give you a whole new experience similar to OnePlus 3 and Moto G Plus.
Longer Battery Life: As Apple is famous for never telling about the exact battery capacity of its models, the company estimated 12 hours of LTE browsing with iPhone 7. Moreover, the company is hoping a couple of more hours clocking with iPhone 7 Plus.
Speedy Processor: ‘iPhone 7 is built with the 64-bit quad-core A10 Fusion chip which is 40% faster than the A9’s processor’, says the company. Two cores dedicated to high efficiency and two cores for high-performance which means your device will conserve battery for handling tasks like takeaway messages and deeper visual graphics like gaming.
Stereo Speakers: Changing the tradition of one speaker, the Apple has added the second speaker to iPhone (one at the top and another at the bottom).
Bigger Storage: the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus has capacities of storing 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB.
Color Options: The models are available in gold, silver, matte black, rose gold, and Glossy jet black. If you want the new jet black color, then you will have to go with the 128GB or 256GB models.
No jack for headphones: This news will disappoint some users (But not as much you think). Instead of a headphone jack, Apple is pushing to use its funky looking AirPods headset which can connect wirelessly with iPhone. Also, you can connect the EarPods headphones through the Lightning connector port as well as you will get an adaptor with other accessories.
