apple has introduced a 12-megapixel camera that includes optical image stabilization on both models. a larger ƒ/1.8 aperture and 6-element lens enables brighter, more detailed photos and videos, while a wide color capture allows for more vibrant hues with increased detail. the iPhone 7 plus also features a 12-megapixel telephoto camera that, together with the 12-megapixel camera, offers up to 10 times digital zoom for photos. a new 7-megapixel FaceTime HD camera is also included on the front of the phone.

the devices use A10 fusion chip, a component that apple says is the most powerful in any smartphone. as a result, graphics performance is more powerful, running up to three times faster than an iPhone 6 with half the power. new stereo speakers offer immersive sound that is twice as loud as the iPhone 6s, offering increased dynamic range of sound and a higher quality speakerphone. the new iPhone comes with EarPods with lightning connector, as well as a 3.5 mm headphone jack adapter that allows users to use old headphones and accessories. AirPods, apple’s new wireless headphones, offer efficient wireless communication for a better connection, improved sound and battery life.

both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus come in five finishes: silver, gold, and rose gold, as well as two all-new black colorways. the jet black finish is accomplished via a nine-step process of anodization and polish for a uniform, glossy appearance. an entirely re-engineered enclosure results in a water resistant phone that offers protection against spills, splashes and dust.
