Apple just announced the new iPhone 7 !!!
The new iPhone 7 camera features optical image stabilization, a wider aperture to let in more light, a high-speed sensor, new true-tone flash, and a new image signal processor.
As expected, the iPhone 7 Plus features two 12 MP cameras – one featuring a wide angle lens and one featuring a telephoto lens, allowing true optical zoom up to 2x and software zooming up to 10x, as well as the new ability to take photos with a shallow depth of field for stunning portraits.
The new Retina display is 25% brighter, and features a wide color gamut with cinema standard colors, as well as the 3D Touch layer.
The phone is splash and water resistant (not waterproof) and features stereo speakers with a huge jump forward in audio quality. Both phones feature speakers on both the top and the bottom of the device, providing the user with twice the volume and improved sound quality with an increased dynamic range.
The iPhone 7 features LTE Advanced, with speeds up to 450 Mbps for data downloads — over 50 percent faster than iPhone 6s and three times faster than iPhone 6. And thanks to even more LTE bands, you’ll have the best worldwide roaming available in a smartphone.
A new A10 Fusion chip - 64-bit, four-core CPU offers 40% faster processing than Apple’s A9 chip, runs at 1/5th the power, providing the iPhone 7 on average 2 hours more battery life than the iPhone 6s, and a new GPU, which is 50% faster than the GPU found on the A9 chip.
Probably the most controversial aspect of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus has been Apple’s decision to axe the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack found on every previous version of the iPhone (and iPod, and almost every other audio-capable device in the past hundred years).
The devices will be available for pre-order on September 9, and will begin shipping on September 16. The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus is available with iOS 10 in the following models: 32GB, 128GB, 256GB.
