designThe bodies of the phones are made from aluminium
come in five colours – silver, gold, rose gold, black, (which has a matte appearance), and “jet black”. (which has a high-gloss look).
No more antenna lines
A new home button
Apple has redesigned the Home button on the iPhone 7 – presumably in order to make the device waterproof.
The new “solid-state” Home button is designed to be durable and responsive, and work in tandem with Apple’s Taptic Engine to provide “more precise and customisable tactile feedback”.
No more headphone socket
Perhaps the most controversial thing about the new iPhone is that it doesn’t have a headphone socket.
The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will ship with a pair of wired headphones that plug into the charging port on the bottom of the device, as well as an adaptor for people who want to hang onto their old headphones.
Both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have upgraded cameras.
The iPhone 7 has a 12-megapixel wide angle camera, which Apple claims is 60% faster and 30% more energy-efficient than previous models, and has 4 LEDS in the flash.
The iPhone 7 Plus has an additional telephoto camera, which together with the standard 12-megapixel wide angle camera offers optical zoom at two times and up to 10 times digital zoom for photos.
Both the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have an IP67 rating, which means they are totally protected against dust and can be immersed in water to a depth of 1 metre.
That means it will survive a dip in the sink or down the loo, and it won’t break if you pour a drink over it, but you probably don’t want to take it swimming.
The processor also improves the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus’ graphics — it’s 50 percent faster than the A9.
