iPhone 7 Released – Dual Lens Camera & Water Resistant

Apple has finally announced iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus yesterday. The design of new iPhone is very similar to iPhone 6 which had a rounded body. But there are many new features that have come with the new iPhone. Let’s move towards the exciting features now.

  • The new iPhone 7 is water resistant. So, your phone can get wet without any worries.
  • There are a couple of differences between the designs of iPhone 6 & iPhone 7. Apple has moved towards mirrored design from metal one. The new jet black color is darker than before.
  • The home button is also redesigned in iPhone 7.
  • The camera has been upgraded with a brighter f/1.8 lens and optical image stabilization. New image processing chip and quad-LED flash are also the part of camera. The front camera is upgraded to 7 megapixels with automatic image stabilization for better selfies and video recording.
  • The major update will come with iPhone 7 Plus, which is dual lens camera. You will be able to use 2x optical zoom and the image quality will not be lost. One lens is equivalent to 28mm for wide angle shots and the other is equivalent to 60mm. You can just tap the 1x or 2x button in the camera app to switch between the lens. This camera will also come with a feature in which the two lenses will be used simultaneously, in order to mimic a shallow depth of field, just like we do with DSLRs.
  • The display is 25% brighter with improved color management. The iPhone 7 is 750 x 1334 pixels, while the iPhone 7 Plus is 1080 x 1920.
  • As expected, there is no headphone jack with the new iPhone. A second speaker has replaced it which will create stereo sound. A set of EarPods will come with the iPhone which can be connected via Bluetooth.
  • Wireless headphones are also designed which are called AirPods. Apple developed a new wireless technology that handles both audio and the wireless connection to the phone or Apple Watch. They have sensors to detect when they are in your ears and “motion accelerometers” to activate Siri. Apple says the AirPods have five hours of battery life and come with a battery case that provides 24 hours of total use.
  • The new processor, A10, is 40 percent faster than A9.
