iPhone 7 — Everything You Need to Know!

iPhone 7 featured image

After months of rumors and leaks, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have finally been officially unveiled by Apple. At first glance, the new iPhones might seem disappointing since they sport the same design that Apple first debuted with the iPhone 6 in 2014. However, look closely and you will realize that Apple has given almost every component of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus a major upgrade — especially the camera.

Not only are the new iPhones water-resistant, they also feature a faster A10 chip and more RAM. Apple has also refreshed the storage tier across the board with the new iPhones to offer double the storage space. This means that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are available in 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage variants.

The primary 12MP rear shooter on the new iPhones is probably the biggest upgrade to the camera system on the handset since the iPhone 4s. While the resolution remains the same, the 12MP sensor is larger and features bigger 1.3u pixels which is paired with a wide f/1.9 aperture. These improvements will allow the new iPhones to deliver significantly better image quality than previous iPhones, especially in low-light. Apple has also made OIS standard across both variants of the iPhone 7. The larger iPhone 7 also features a secondary 12MP camera sensor for additional features like the ability to refocus after an image is taken and more.
