What is immediately striking about this new smartphone, which is similar in design to its predecessor, the iPhone 6 is the lack of the 3.5 mm jack for headphones which is replaced by a connection to a lightning port.
The devices therefore have only one connection plug left, the lightning-gate that is used to charge the phones and connect peripheral devices. Listening to music should henceforth require Lightning earplugs or a wireless Bluetooth headset.
Apple ships with every iPhone 7 device some compatible mobile ears. Also, a gradient plug to connect a traditional headset is offered for free.
The new iPhone 7 is certainly a powerful camera. The cameras on the front and back were improved.
The iPhone 7 stays true to an architecture with a single lens of 28mm while its big brother, the iPhone 7 Plus, has a second lens of 56mm so you can easily zoom. The cameras feature automatic image stabilization and the new flash provides 50% more light output.
The new home button cannot be pressed but provides feedback via vibration and is pressure sensitive. This is similar to Force Touch on MacBooks.
The iPhone 7 is also IP67 certified, which means that the phone is dust and water resistant (maximum depth of one meter and a maximum of 30 minutes).
The sound is provided by powerful stereo speakers on the top and bottom of the phone, the screen is 25% lighter than its predecessor, there is a new FaceTime camera and there is a choice of two new colors: black and jet black (glossy).
Everything is controlled by a new A10-chip of which the performance is 30% higher than that of the chip in the iPhone 6s.
