7 best iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus features

Apple today unveiled the highly anticipated smartphones, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. For some users, the latest iPhones may disappoint them due to their same design language as the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s, but they do have the latest technological improvements and enhancements inside.

These changes are not revolutionary, as they have existed somewhere for a while in the market. However, for iOS fans, the new iPhones are truly a complete package that they have been waiting for. If you miss the launch event, don’t worry because we can help you out.

In this post, we will walk you through seven best iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus features.

1. Water and dust resistant


The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus mark the first iPhones to feature IP67 rating, allowing the pair to survive being submerged in about a meter of water for 30 minutes. Besides, the IP67 means that the new iPhones are dust proof. In reality, water and dust resistance is definitively something that all iPhone fans have been waiting for from this year’s iPhones, as it has become a standard feature across all top Android smartphones for a while.

2. New Colors

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus might not look a ton different than last year’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, but the pair still have their own selling point. With the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, Apple has added new two colors: Jet Black and Black.


The new Jet Black color might be Apple’s strategic plan to attract new iOS users to its platform, but it has a drawback; it can get scratched very easily, so Apple recommend that you use a case to protect the new handset.

3. Upgraded camera

Camera may be the biggest change when it comes to this year’s iPhones. A 12MP rear shooter is still there, but it has been completely upgraded. With the iPhone 7, the 12 MP rear camera comes with a much larger sensor, paired with a 6-element lens with a f/1.8 aperture, allowing the iPhone 7 to capture better photos, especially in low-light conditions.


Besides, the iPhone 7’s camera comes with Apple’s enhanced iPS and Quad LED True Tone flash that offer up to 50% brighter. The iPhone 7 Plus also comes with a dual-lens camera system (wide angle and telephoto), allowing the new device to offer 2x optical zoom and 10x digital zoom.

4. Capacitive Home button

With the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, Apple first introduced the new capacitive home button, which uses a “taptic engine”to give you clicking feeling every time you press it. In reality, this is the same technology we have seen on Apple’s MacBook lineup, so if you are looking for something revolutionary here, you may be disappointed.

5. Storage

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 marks the first time when Apple stops offering iPhones with base storage of 16GB. This time, Apple has doubled the storage space for new iPhones that starts from 32GB as minimum. The best part is the pricing remains the same, which means that you will get the double storage on the new iPhone when comparing to the iPhone 6s.

6. A10 chip


The pair are the first iPhones to feature a quad-core chip inside, A10 Fusion. The new chip offers 50% faster performance than its predecessors thanks to its six-core GPU. Besides, the new chip consumes 2/3rd the power of the A9 chip found inside the iPhone 6s. A10 chip is really a beast, as it helps you do the majority of your tasks easily.

7. Better battery life

Battery life has always been the main concern when it comes to Apple devices. This year, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus offer the longest battery life even, as they offer up to 2 hours more than the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are great smartphones with beautiful design, high performance and better battery life. With the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, all the things you do most become much better.
