If you have been following my semi-live update on the iPhone 7, you’d have realized that the major feature of the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is its CAMERA!!! Which based on what I saw is pretty A M A Z I N G!
However, what other features should you expect to see?
Unfortunately, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus did not feature ground-breaking designs as they bear similar resemblance to the iPhone 6s. The only noticeable difference is that it is SHINY, and they achieved that by using robots to spin the aluminum body through sand. It also has a glass display.
2. LET’S MAKE IT WET, SHALL WE?
One cool thing about the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus is the fact that it is IP67 certified, this makes it good enough for an accidental drop in water, but not good enough to shower with regularly.
3. THE MAJOR HIGHLIGHT: THE CAMERAS!!
I am pretty hyped about the cameras on the iPhone 7 & 7 Plus. The iPhone 7 features an optical image stabilization that allows you to get 3x longer exposure. You also have a 1.8 aperture lens, a 12-megapixel sensor that is 60 percent faster, a quad-LED flash with 50 percent light output. Finally, the iPhone 7 has a 7-megapixel front camera, up from a 5-megapixel camera on the iPhone 6s.
Now, the iPhone 7 Plus takes the game to another level by offering you a dual 12-megapixel camera on the back that allows for both wide angle and telephoto — one lens handles 1x zoom while the other hands 2x zoom. Its optical zoom also allows you to go all the way to 10x zoom.
Let’s not forget the amazing depth of field effect!
Of course, check out some camera samples taken with the cameras:

As earlier stated, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will come with stereo speakers, one at the top and the other at the bottom; you no longer have the 3.5mm jack instead you have earpods that connect over lighting! However, the iPhone 7 would also include a dongle to connect to your existing headphone!
Finally, we have the gorgeous Airpods! They are wireless earphones that will use Infrared sensors to detect when they’re in your ears, playing only when they’re in your ears.
It offers up to 5 hours of playback before needing a charge.
Now to the part Y’all have been waiting for!
Surprisingly, the new iPhone 7 and 7 plus would be staying at the same price tag on the iPhone 6s. The iPhone 7 starts at $649 while the iPhone 7 Plus starts at $769
Meanwhile, Apple’s new AirPods would go for $159.
If only we (Nigerians) aren’t in a recession 🙁
