Apple iPhone 7 Review and Features

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones were designed, developed, and marketed by Apple Inc. They are the tenth generation of the iPhone.

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones were announced on September 7, 2016, at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco by Apple CEO Tim Cook, and were released on September 16, 2016, succeeding the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus as the flagship devices in the iPhone lineups.

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones were succeeded as flagship devices by the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus on September 12, 2017, and were discontinued after the announcement of the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro on September 10, 2019.

The iPhone 7’s overall design is similar to iPhone 6S and iPhone 6. Changes introduced included new colour options (Matte Black and Jet Black), water and dust resistance, a new capacitive, static home button, revised antenna bands, and the controversial removal of the 3.5 mm headphone jack.

The device’s internal hardware received upgrades, including a heterogeneous quad-core system-on-chip with improved system and graphics performance, upgraded 12-megapixel rear-facing cameras with optical image stabilization on all models, and an additional telephoto lens exclusive to the iPhone 7 Plus to provide enhanced (2x) optical zoom capabilities and portrait mode.

The front camera is the first in the series with 1080p (Full HD) video resolution. The iPhone 7 & 7 Plus are supported from iOS 10 to iOS 15, and they are the second to support six versions of iOS after the iPhone 5S.

iPhone 7 is rated IP67 water and dust-resistant, making it the first officially water-resistant iPhone, although tests have resulted in malfunctions, specifically distorted speakers, after water exposure. The warranty does not cover any water damage to the phone.

Home button

iPhone 7’s home button uses a capacitive mechanism for input rather than a physical push-button, as in previous models, meaning direct skin contact (or a capacitive glove) is required to operate the device. Physical feedback is provided via a Taptic Engine vibrator, and the button is also pressure-sensitive. iPhone 7 retains the 3D Touch display system introduced on the iPhone 6S, providing pressure-sensitive touchscreen input.

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are the first iPhones not to feature a 3.5mm headphone jack. It was replaced by a second speaker grille that serves as a vent for the internal barometer. A Lightning-to-3.5-mm-connector adapter, as well as in-ear headphones that use the Lightning connector, were bundled with the device, and the adapter is also sold separately as an accessory.

The adapter is also compatible with other iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices running iOS 10 and newer.

iPhone 7 uses the Apple A10 Fusion 64-bit system-on-chip, which consists of two low-power cores and two high-power cores (only two cores are used at any point in time). The A10 chip also features a hexa-core graphics chip capable of “console-level gaming”.

As with prior models, iPhone 7 is available in two sizes: one with a 4.7 in (120 mm) screen, and a “Plus” variant with a 5.5 in (140 mm) screen. The displays have identical sizes and resolutions to iPhone 6S, but with a wider colour gamut and increased brightness. The screen-to-body ratio is about ~66% and ~68% for the 7 and 7 Plus, respectively.

Both device variants also contain a new iteration of Apple’s motion coprocessor, the M10. Unlike previous iPhone models, internal storage options for iPhone 7 begin at 32 GB instead of 16 GB and max out at 256 GB. iPhone 7 Plus offers 3 GB of RAM, more than any other previous iPhone; the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 has 2 GB.

Cameras

iPhone 7 Plus with a dual-lens camera. The iPhone 7 includes a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera with a quad-LED “True Tone” flash; its aperture was widened to f/1.8, and the standard-size phone model adds optical image stabilization – a feature that was previously exclusive to Plus models.

The iPhone 7 Plus includes a second 12-megapixel telephoto lens, which can be used to achieve 2× optical zoom, and up to 10× digital zoom. However, the telephoto camera has an f/2.8 aperture and lacks optical image stabilization.

The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus record video with single-channel mono audio. Still, photos with 6.5 megapixels (3412×1920) can be captured during video recording.

The front-facing camera was upgraded to a 7-megapixel sensor with automatic image stabilization. The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are the first iPhones to be able to record 1080p video using the front camera.

Battery Life

The iPhone 7 has a 1,960 mAh battery which can last about 10 hours, and 15 minutes. The iPhone 7 Plus has a 2,900 mAh battery and can last for 12 hours, and 40 minutes.

Network

SIM <strong>SIM</strong> (Subscriber Identity Module) is a small card that contains mobile network subscriber's account information. This allows the phone using the card to attach to a mobile network. The SIM card is most commonly associated with GSM and UMTS mobile networks. Moving a SIM card from one phone to another allows a subscriber to switch mobile phones without having to contact their mobile network carrier. SIM cards can also be used by a phone to store limited amounts of data, such as phone numbers and text messages. Nano SIM
