Yes, today at the Apple Special Event, the tech giant announced it’s greatest new phones: the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. They look stunning an an all new ‘Jet Black’ and ‘Black’ colours, are waterproof and the 7 Plus has dual rear cameras! Most importantly, these phones are IP67 water-resistant and have a force touch home button.
Apple eliminated the headphone jack on the iPhone 7 (R.I.P. headphone jack) to use the Lightning port instead, because it improves the quality of audio as and reduces the space used inside the phone. In doing so and using the efficient A10 Fusion chipset, Apple has improved the battery life of the phone by 1 hour (on the iPhone 7 Plus) and 2 hours (on iPhone 7). Also, this has allowed the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus to be IP67 water-resistant.
The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are ridiculously fast; they have an all new quad-core A10 Fusion chipset. Two of the four cores are low power cores that’ll handle simple tasks like checking a message. But when grunt is required, the other two high power cores push the pixels, making the iPhone 7 120x faster than the original iPhone! GPU performance has also been significantly improved. Rumours suggest that RAM has also been increased from 2 GB to 3 GB.
