The built and construction of the iPhone 7 Plus is identical to that of the iPhone 7. Over the previous iPhone models the 7 Plus gets a new protection treatment on it and now it is splash, Water and Dust Resistant. The design and looks have been carried forward from the iPhone 6 Plus but there are some differences that sets the 7 Plus apart. For example the antenna artwork at the rear has now been fashioned in a way that it now runs around the boundary of the phone instead of running across the width.
On the front is a 5.5inch LED-backlit next-generation Multi‑Touch display with IPS technology and new Taptic Engine. It is said to be the brightest and the most colourful display ever fitted on an iPhone. The resolution and pixel density stands at 1920-by-1080 and 401 ppi respectively.
Apart from the screen size difference, the iPhone 7 Plus has some hardware additions over the regular iPhone 7. The camera configuration is completely different than that of the regular. The iPhone 7 Plus gets a Dual camera setup at the rear that includes all-new 12MP wide-angle and telephoto cameras. These cameras have ƒ/1.8 and ƒ/2.8 aperture and are assisted by Optical image stabilization. The camera uses a Quad-LED True Tone flash and has a Sapphire crystal lens cover on it for protection. On the front is the same camera as the iPhone 7 that is a 7MP unit with ƒ/2.2 aperture.
The iPhone 7 Plus is equipped with a 64bit A10 Fusion chip coupled with a M10 motion coprocessor. It gets 3GB of RAM and is offered with three storage options – 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB. The 3.5mm audio jack has been removed on this one as well.
The new Home Button is equipped with a Second-generation fingerprint sensor. With the help of the Touch ID tech, users can pay with the iPhone in stores, within apps, and on the web. The battery has been pumped up and is claimed to provide an hour of usage more than the iPhone 6s Plus.
The iPhone 7 Plus has been loaded with the latest iOS 10 that has been optimised in terms of safety, performance, and functionality.
