At a launch event last night, Apple revealed an upgraded iPhone that, while aesthetically similar to the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, has several big differences, including a pressure-sensitive home button, better camera, a faster processor and improved battery life, as well as having no headphone jack.
Instead of the traditional headphone connection, iPhone packages will now come with earphones that fit into the phone’s Lightning port, currently used for charging and data transfer.
The iPhone 7 Plus has two 12MP cameras, one of which is a wide angle lens and the other a telephoto lens that can zoom 2X in high quality without using any software. The telephoto lens means the camera can zoom to 10X with optical and soft zoom.
The new iPhones are also water-resistant with an IPX67 rating which means the hardware can withstand immersion in up to 1 metre of water for 30 minutes.
Shipping starts 16th September with prices at £599 for 32GB; £699 for 128GB and £799 for 256GB.
