Apply has finally lifted the curtains off of its new flagship phone line. The Apple iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus will replace the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in becoming Apple’s most selling phones.
There are a bunch of changes with the new iPhones, for starters there is no 3.5 mm headphone jack, as it seems the rumours have come true. Apple has removed the headphone jack from the latest iPhones and added stereo speakers.
Design wise there are slight changes to appearance, we have a new thinner design along with a revised set of antenna lines that sit at the edges of the phone instead of twisting around the back. The iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 plus get a new camera setup.
The new Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have a new IP67 rating making them officially water and dust resistant.
Hardware wise Apple has added the new Apple A10 fusion chipset, with Quad cores, which offers upto 40% more performance and 50% faster graphics over the previous generation iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s plus. The graphics are now 240x the original iPhone. Two out of the four cores are high efficiency cores that will work when no performance intensive take is running, considerably increasing battery life performance.
The Apple iPhone 7 Camera now has a f/1.8, 6 element lens with a new 12 MP sensor, a new set of color coded Quad-LED flash and a Flicker Sensor that checks ambient light flicker and adjusts the camera to compensate for that. A New Image Signal Processor does 100 billion photographic calculations in 25 ms and delivers a better contrast image. The new camera allows developers to take advantage of live photos, users can also edit their live photos. Developers will also get access to wide color RAW images which the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will now shoot.
The front gets a 7 MP FaceTime camera on both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The Apple iPhone 7 plus on the other hand, gets a new dual 12 MP camera setup, just like the LG V20 you will get a wide lens and a tele lens. Allowing 2X optical zoom and a new 10x software zoom.
Apple is also working on a new depth effect which much like the HTC One M8 from many years ago will allow the cameras to use both sensors to get subject and background mapping allowing the ISP to store images and shallow depth of field data. You will be able to live preview the effect before you click the picture , a feature that even DSLRs do not offer, this is limited to the Apple iPhone 7 Plus. The depth effect will be pushed out in a software update later this year
Apple has also launched new AirPods that offer wireless audio for upto 5 hours and have a included battery case that gives an additional 24 hours of charge, which can be charged via a lightning cable. These come separate and will cost US $ 149
The Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have new displays that support wide color in true cinema style, no changes in resolution. Apple iPhone 7 gets a 4.7 inch display with 1334 x 750 px resolution giving ~326ppi. Whereas, the Apple iPhone 7 Plus gets a 5.5 inch display with 1920 x 1080 px resolution and a ~401 ppi.
The iPhone 7 will now sell in 32 GB , 128 GB and 256 GB capacities (jet black will be only available in 128 GB and 256 Gb variants). The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will now be available in a 32GB and 128GB capacity with the SE in 16GB and 64GB capacities. Everything else in the iPhone line up has been axed.
