iPhone 7: all you need to know

Finally – iPhone 7 has been revealed officially and most of the rumours have now been confirmed.

Here is all you need to know about the brand new Apple iPhone 7 from the source:

“iPhone 7 dramatically improves the most important aspects of the iPhone experience. It introduces advanced new camera systems. The best performance and battery life ever in an iPhone. Immersive stereo speakers. The brightest, most colourful iPhone display. Splash and water resistance.

iPhone is the most popular camera in the world. Now we’ve reengineered that beloved camera, adding optical image stabilization, an ƒ/1.8 aperture, and a six-element lens to make it even better for shooting photos and videos in low light. And with advanced new features like wide colour capture, your photos and Live Photos will look even more vibrant.

iPhone 7 reaches a new level of innovation and precision. The jet black finish is like nothing we’ve ever made. The enclosure is splash and water resistant.1 The Home button is completely reengineered. And with a new unibody design that’s seamless to the touch, iPhone 7 feels as amazing as it looks.

Crafted from bead-blasted aluminium, our new black model has a rich, deep matte finish. The high-gloss jet black finish was achieved through a new feat of design engineering — a remarkably precise, nine-step process of anodization and polishing.2 The end result is so purely and continuously black, you can’t tell where the aluminum ends and the glass begins. The dark side, indeed.

With its entire enclosure reengineered, iPhone 7 is the very first water‑resistant iPhone.1 So now you’re protected like never before against spills, splashes, and even dust.

An all-new Home button.

The Home button on iPhone 7 is an advanced solid-state button designed to be durable, responsive, and pressure sensitive. Working in tandem with the new Taptic Engine, it gives you precise tactile feedback as you press. And it’s even customizable. Welcome home.

Touch ID

Using a highly advanced fingerprint sensor that’s as fast as ever, Touch ID makes unlocking your iPhone easy and secure.

Apple Pay

With iPhone, you can pay instantly and securely in stores, in apps, and on the web. And because your card details are never shared by Apple with merchants or stored on your device, using Apple Pay is the safer way to pay.3

Almost everything you experience with your iPhone comes to life on its display. It’s where you look at the photos, messages, news, and countless other things that make up your day. The iPhone 7 display uses the same color space as the digital cinema industry, so what you see will be noticeably more brilliant and vibrant. Because we all deserve a bit more brightness in our day.

More colors. More true to life.

With a new wide color gamut, the Retina HD display is able to deliver cinema‑standard colors — and the best color management in the smartphone industry. More shades of the color spectrum can be used to create an image, meaning that what you see on the screen is a truer representation of the world. So whether you’re checking out photos of that perfect dress or Live Photos you took in the tropics, the colors will be so accurate, it will look like you’re there.

3D Touch. Now even handier.

When you use 3D Touch, your iPhone responds with subtle taps. So not only will you see what a press can do — you’ll feel it. The new Retina HD display on iPhone 7 deeply integrates 3D Touch throughout iOS. Now you can interact with Messages, Calendar, Mail, and other apps in a more powerful, more responsive way.

iPhone 7 is supercharged by the most powerful chip ever in a smartphone. It’s not just faster than any previous iPhone — it’s also more efficient. That’s because the A10 Fusion chip uses an all-new architecture that enables faster processing when you need it, and the ability to use even less power when you don’t. And with the longest battery life ever in an iPhone, you can work at twice the speed of iPhone 6 and still enjoy more time between charges.

Faster and more efficient.

With an all-new four-core design, the A10 Fusion chip’s CPU has two high‑performance cores and two high‑efficiency cores. The high‑performance cores can run at up to 2x the speed of iPhone 6, while the high‑efficiency cores are capable of running at just one-fifth the power of the high‑performance cores. That means you get the best performance and efficiency when you need it.

Longest battery life ever in an iPhone.

With the A10 Fusion chip, this year you’ll get more time between charges than ever before. Take advantage of up to two more hours on iPhone 7 and up to one more hour on iPhone 7 Plus than the previous generation.4

Double the capacity up to 256GB.

iPhone 7 doubles the capacity of iPhone 6s across the line to 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB. So bring on the apps. Bring on the videos. iPhone 7 can take it. Literally.

For the first time, iPhone comes with stereo speakers, delivering two times the audio output of iPhone 6s and increased dynamic range. So whether you’re listening to music, watching videos, or making speakerphone calls, iPhone 7 lets you crank it up. Way, way up.

EarPods. With a Lightning connector.

iPhone 7 comes with EarPods that have a Lightning connector. But if you still want to listen through your old headphones, you can plug them in using a 3.5 mm headphone jack adapter, also included.

Introducing AirPods.

The new AirPods offer a game-changing listening experience. Designed with a huge amount of forward-thinking technology inside a tiny device, these wireless headphones combine crystal clear sound with a new sense of freedom.5
