Specs and design

- Better cameras. The latest iPhones both have the 12-megapixel camera with the iPhone 7 Plus taking it to the next level with its dual camera lens. Your FaceTime moments have also been upgraded to HD with the 7-megapixel front cam installed on both devices.
- The most advanced operating system. While the previous iPhones are still running on iOS 9.3.3, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are confirmed to have the iOS 10 upon release.
- No headphone jack? Not a problem! While it’s true that iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus only have the Lightning port, adapters will be included in the box so you can still use your standard headsets. But if you prefer to have a wireless listening experience, you can always try the new AirPods.
- Same sleek design, more colors to choose from. There’s no major overhaul in the aesthetics department, but the most notable changes in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are their thinner build and the additions of matte black and a glossy, jet-black finish. You can also get the 4.7- and 5.5-inch versions in gold, rose gold, and silver.
- All-new home button. The home button is still present and it’s now more durable and pressure sensitive. It also delivers more precise, tactile feedback with the help of Apple’s new Taptic Engine.
- Water-resistant and dustproof. iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are the first in the iPhone family to have the iP67 protection to keep them safe from dust and water spills.
- A better battery. The new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have the best battery in iPhone history.
