Apple has finally taken the wraps off of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus and luckily for you, we’ve secured one of each of them. In this video we’ll dig deep into everything you need to know about the devices’ newest and greatest features.
The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus feature a refined design. The overall look and feel is near identical to the 6 and 6s line. The only noticeable differences are the antennae bands have been moved and the camera is cut out from the same unibody piece of aluminum. Also, the headphone jack is gone, but I bet you knew that already.
The other design news is the new color options. There is no Space Gray iPhone 7 or 7 Plus option. It has been replaced by two new color options, a matte and a glossy black finish Apple labeled Black and Jet Black respectively.
Reimagined Home Button
A redesigned Home button sits in its familiar location on the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, however, it will no longer physically click. Instead, the new Home button is solid state, pressure sensitive, and will feature Taptic feedback.
Water and Dust Resistance…Finally
Even though iPhones have continued to become more water resistant over the years, Apple has never made note of that fact during a keynote. The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are IP67 certified, and Apple spent time on stage touting this feature. What this means is the new iPhones can withstand being submerged in up to one meter of water for 30 minutes.
It’s no surprise the cameras on the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus were upgraded, but the massive improvements were a bit of a shock. The iPhone 7 features a 12MP sensor with an f/1.8 aperture which, Apple claims takes in 50 percent more light than the 6s. However, the big news was all about the iPhone 7 Plus.
The iPhone 7 Plus features a dual-lens setup. Alongside the 12MP wide-angle lens is a second 12MP telephoto lens. This dual setup allows for further zoom and the creation of shallow depth of field by meshing together images taken from both cameras.
