The Iphone 7 and 7 Plus Updates We Care About

So I’m not tech-person, trust me. But I have been dying for the new Iphone 7 and 7plus announcement. The following information will be for folks who are just as non-tech savvy and watched the announcement trying to figure out what new upgrades we’ll actually care about. Here’s what I found:

  1. You can pre-order the new phone THIS Friday, September 9th. It will ship out on September 16th.
  2. The Iphone 7 will start at $649 and the 7plus will start at $749
  3. It’s water-resistant
  4. The new Iphone comes in a new jet black finish with a high gloss, and seamless surface. You can’t really see the antenna anymore and the body, overall, is more sleek.
  5. The new phone will also come in rose gold, silver, black, and gold.
  6. New cameras with image stabilizer with a wider apperteure lens ( this means better pics in low light), sharper images, and 12 mega pixel sensor.
  7. The 7-Plus will feature two,  mega pixel cameras for even better performance. There will also be an upgrade to this camera in December which will allow you to take pictures with a blurred out background (shallow depth of field). These are examples of pictures taken with the new shallow depth of field featurenew-iphone-7-pictures new-iphone-7-pictures new-iphone-7-pictures
  8. The headphone jack is gone. Headphones can now be plugged into the lightning cable jack (where you now plug in your charger). It will come with an adapter so you can still use your old headphones if  you want to.  screen-shot-2016-09-07-at-2-25-52-pm
  9. Apple also introduced ear pods. These are basically wireless headphones that aren’t blue-tooth enabled ( I think). You will charge them right in the box and they connect seamlessly to all your devices. this will be really cool to use with your apple watch since talking on it now is pretty awkward. screen-shot-2016-09-07-at-2-31-16-pm screen-shot-2016-09-07-at-2-28-53-pm screen-shot-2016-09-07-at-2-31-38-pm

The earpods are sold separately for $159.

8. More storage.


9. Longer battery

In a Nutshell
And that’s all folks! I’m sure you can find more information on the apple site, but this is all I took away from the announcement.

Will you be getting the new Iphone 7 or 7-Plus?

  1. Thanks for the article! I like the better camera and the extra telephoto camera, and I like the storage upgrade, but I am not sure about the absence of the headphone jack as I have invested in a few headphones already. But the fact that I currently have an iPhone 5, makes upgrading to iPhone 7 worth considering! Thanks again.

    1. it comes with an adapter, so you can still use your old headphones!

  2. I cannot believe just how cheap an IPhone is in the US. I wish here the price was as good because it is double what you guys pay there. One day when I come to the states, I am going to buy all of the essentials I need 🙂

    I am iphone lover and using iphone 6 right now. I saw the apple event on 7 September 2016. There were many big announcements like apple watch 2 and iphone 7 and 7 plus. Wireless headphones i like this and waiting for ios 10. This time apple works on his camera improvement. They also worked on battery. I am using iphones for last 4 years and i am facing battery problem. Hope iphone 7 will blast and break all the previous records.

    iPhne 7 and iPhone 7 Plus price in Nigeria is very expensive, it’s almost same as the cost of buyig a plot of land. I am using the iPhone 6 smartphone and looking for a cheaper way to buy this flagship,

    I love this review.

  5. I just hope that iPhone is cheaper in our country. I have always been an android user since iPhome is too expensive here but given the chance that I can buy iPhon with the same price in the US then I probably been an iPhone user and not an android user. Thank you for sharing this post. Apple has always been making good upgrades. Do you think an upgrade will come anytime soon for another model like iPhone 8?

    Thanks for this wonderful review. I really love apple products and I think iPhone 7 is one of the best models they did. Right now, they also offer 7 plus and it looks really cool too. I am just wondering why ap[ple opted to remove the audio jack. Do you know the reason behind?
