After the several leaks and rumors, there were no surprises left at the Apple’s launch event about the new iPhone. But if you missed or still confused about whether buy or not to buy Apple’s new iPhone 7, here we made it a little easy for you. We have decided to write a post on the same so that it could help people in making a decision quickly. To refresh, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were launched at an event in San Fransisco on September 7. Apple says, iPhone 7 is the best ever iPhone they have ever made.
Let’s have a quick look on reasons- why you should go for iPhone7.
Both iPhones ( iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus) are powered by a brand new 64-bit A10 Fusion chipset. This new-generation Fusion chip comes with a quad-core CPU with 3.3 billion transistors and two high-performance cores. A10 Fusion chips are 40% faster than the A9 chip and two times faster than the Apple A8.
This all coupled with a hexa-core GPU which is 50% faster than the A9’s GPU and draws just 66% of the power.
Completely re-designed, powerful cameras
The rear cameras of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are still 12MP but the company has re-designed them to improve its quality quite a bit. In Apple iPhone 7 Plus, there is an entirely new dual camera system which means two 12MP units at back. Camera in both devices features Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) while iPhone 7 Plus’ dual camera setup even makes 2x optical zoom possible with 10x times digital zoom.
There’s a Quad LED True Tone flash, which means 4 LEDs to light up your photographs which is 50 percent brighter than the iPhone 6s. Both devices also have better 7MP FaceTime HD cameras.
Double storage capacity
As you all aware that Apple has dropped 16GB and 64GB units and all variants of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus offer the storage capacity – 32GB, 128GB and 256GB which is double when compared to their corresponding predecessors at the very much similar pricing.
Water and dust resistant
iPhone 6S was almost water-sealed, but not fully. After killing 3.5 mm headphone jack, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have been made fully water resistant and dust resistant. This was the most awaited feature in iPhone and the best borrowed from Android counterparts.
Both the models are IP67 certified under IEC standard 60529 which makes them splash, water and dust resistant. The device can be submerged under 1m of water for about 30 minutes without any damage.
Apple confirmed that the iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus come with the ‘best battery life’ ever seen in previous iPhone generation. Apple says, the iPhone 7 Plus lasts up to 1 hour longer battery life than iPhone 6s Plus and the iPhone 7 stands up to 2 hours longer battery life than iPhone 6s.

More colorful iPhone Display yet
Although the iPhone 7 comes with the similar Retina HD display but it is more brighter and colorful that earlier. With a new wide color gamut, the Retina HD display is able to deliver cinema‑standard colors nad makes it 25% more brighter. The new Retina HD display on iPhone 7 deeply integrates 3D Touch throughout iOS which makes more responsive experience.
Stereo speakers & Wireless AirPods
iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, both devices sport stereo speakers with one each at the top and bottom of the display. These are likely to make an impressive audio experience, so if you love to watch movies and playing games on your smartphone, both devices are definitely worth considering.
Hope you all are aware that 3.5mm headphone jack is gone, now you need to plug headphones through lightning port only. Inside the retail box, you will get the EarPods with lightning connector as well as a lightning to 3.5 mm headphone jack adapter to use your previous headphones. You can also go for the Apple’s latest wireless headphones – AirPods.
The iPhone 7 sports a new unibody design with the antenna bands on the top and bottom edges on the back which makes it looks even more beautiful than the earlier iPhone models. Another major change is the new and completely re-engineered Home button, which houses the fingerprint sensor making it pressure sensitive, no physically clicking anymore.
The new Home button uses TAPTIC engine technology which resembles the MacBook Force Touch trackpad.
