The iPhone 7 has been one of the biggest launches of the year 2016. The phone was brought to the market in the month of October with its more capable variant that goes by the name iPhone 7 Plus. For the iPhone 7, the company packed it with a ton of features that are not just limited to the exterior but also make its way to the interior. With all aspects of the iPhone taken a notch higher than the previous model, the new 7 has also had to give-up on a vital port, the 3.5mm audio jack. Well, Apple came up with a solution for that as well – the all new Airpods.

The design of the iPhone is something that Apple emphasizes on every single time. Even a new screw or a fold is described with quantum importance and with the iPhone 7 things are no different. The iPhone 7 gets an aluminium body with the camera housing sculpted in the body itself. The not-so-cool looking antenna artwork on the back has been embedded on the top and bottom which doesn’t mess with the smooth design. The screen is a 4.7inch HD display with LED‑backlit technology. The pixel resolution and density stands at 1334×750-and 326 ppi respectively. It features an oleophobic coating on it that makes the screen Fingerprint-resistant. The frame misses the 3.5mm Audio Jack. The new iPhone features stereo speakers and a new solid state, force sensitive home button.
The phone is available in Rose Gold, Gold, Silver, Black, and Jet Black colour options. The Jet Black version is exclusively available in 128GB and 256GB models. Speaking of the tech gone in the making of the Jet Black model, Apple has devised an all new process, Rotational 3D polishing, that gives the phone an amazing fit and finish. The iPhone 7 is Splash, Water and Dust Resistant as it has been rated IP67 under IEC standards.
Powering the iPhone 7 is an A10 Fusion chip with 64-bit architecture. This chip is embedded with M10 motion coprocessor. The fusion chip has an all-new four-core design that comprises of two high‑performance cores and two high‑efficiency cores This configuration is claimed to be two times faster than the iPhone 6 and in terms of Graphics it is 3 times better. The iPhone 7 is rolled out with three storage options – 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB.
The camera has been improved and now there is a 12MP primary shooter at the rear and a 7MP Facetime HD camera. The rear camera gets a ƒ/1.8 aperture and the front gets ƒ/2.2 aperture. Some features of the rear camera include Optical Image Stabilization, Six‑element lens, Quad-LED True Tone flash, Sapphire crystal lens cover, and Autofocus with Focus Pixels. The front camera gets Retina Flash, Auto HDR, Backside illumination sensor, Body and face detection, and Auto Image Stabilisation.
The iPhone 7 features the longest battery life than any other iPhone made till date. With the help of the A10 Fusion chip, the iPhone 7 gets up to two more hours of usage than the previous generation.
The iPhone 7 gets the latest iOS 10 that has been completely optimized to support all the new tech and mech of the phone. The developers have also bumped up the safety of the operating system.
