The release of a new iPhone always makes a fuss. This is not surprising, as the iPhone 7 is undoubtedly one of the best devices of its kind and one of the most anticipated smartphones of 2016. Even though the iPhone 7 looks like its predecessor, its technical characteristics have changed significantly. Let’s find out what new treats the Apple company has in store for us.
One of the most significant innovations of the iPhone 7 is its water and dust resistance according to the IP67 standard. You can notice it from the very beginning, when inserting a SIM-card – black rubber padding is clearly visible on the tray. As a result, the smartphone case does not let in dust and it can endure a submersion in water up to one meter deep for up to 30 minutes. It is advised that you become acquainted with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus with the help of the iPhone 7 instructions, which can be downloaded from our website.
The same sensor IPS 4.7-inch display with 1334-by-750-pixel resolution at 326 dpi is used in the iPhone 7. As for the iPhone 7 Plus, it features a 5.5-inch display with 1920-by-1080-pixel resolution. These characteristics are not different from those of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. We wish the iPhone 7 had Full HD. Both the brightness and contrast ratio in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are almost the same as in the previous models.
Ever since the first generation of the iPhone, a physical Home button has always been located under the display of Apple smartphones. It has not disappeared in the iPhone 7, but is no longer physical. Now it is a sensor that slightly sinks into the case and is pressure-sensitive. During the first setup of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, it is possible to choose the click strength and feedback. This is described in more detail in the iPhone 7 user guide iBook on the official Apple website.
As for the fingerprint scanner, it has remained the same, despite the changes in the Home button. This is the same module we experienced in the iPhone 6s. It works a little faster in the iPhone 7, which is likely the consequence of the increased processor performance.
Despite the fact that the processor in the iPhone 6s was rather fast, the Apple company has used a new chip, the A10 Fusion, in the iPhone 7. It is a quad-core processor working at a frequency of 2.3GHz. It is completed with 2 GB of random-access memory. Apple claims that the iPhone 7 is 40% faster than the iPhone 6s due to the new hardware platform.
The minimum inbuilt memory of the iPhone 7 is 32 GB. It is hard to believe, but the 16 GB model remains in the past; users can choose 32, 128, and 256 GB of memory. Considering the accessibility of cloud services for listening to music and storing photos, one can simply purchase the 32 GB version. The iPhone 7 works under the iOS 10 operating system; you can use the iPhone 7 manual to familiarize yourself with it.
The iPhone 7 features a 12MP camera with a six-element lens, optical image stabilization, and a ƒ/1.8 aperture. The camera in the iPhone 7 Plus consists of two parts, a wide-angle and telephoto camera. It ensures optical image stabilization without any quality loss. In addition, the digital zoom is improved. Double cameras create a faux depth-of-field effect to focus on the people in the photo and blur the background.
Another innovative feature of the iPhone 7 is the absence of a 3.5-mm headphone jack, which had been standardized in modern smartphones by Apple itself. The company stated that the jack is too old and takes up too much space in the case – space that can be used for other purposes. As we know, an increased battery and the Taptic Engine have taken the place of the 3.5-mm jack in the iPhone 7. It is suggested that users listen to music via the Lightning port or the wireless Bluetooth connection using AirPods.
A 1,960mAh battery is used in the iPhone 7, which is a great improvement over the 1,715mAh battery in the iPhone 6s. The iPhone 7 lasts longer, and Apple promises an average of an additional two hours of battery life. The iPhone 7 battery can endure a day of active usage, with active data transmission, up to 30 minutes of phone calls, music, occasional games, and social media apps.
