- In iPhone 7 Plus, the Lightning port can carry a tremendous amount of data across to users’ headphones, and as such Apple has boosted the iPhone 7 Plus’ audio capabilities to match. The iPhone 7 Plus has dual speakers, rather than the single mono output at the bottom of the phone. These are positioned top and bottom to create decent stereo sound, and the different angles make listening to tunes or watching films a real treat.
- When it comes to the look of the iPhone 7 Plus, it might seem like Apple’s done very little to change the design: the dimensions and screen size are nearly identical to last year’s model, meaning that you’ll struggle to tell the difference between phones from 2014 and 2016.
- Apple claimed in its keynote diffused on September 7, 2016, that it had taken “courage” to get rid of the “ancient” port (Motorola’s Moto Z handset performed the same trick earlier in 2016).
- The iPhone 7 Plus is water-resistant, with its IP67 rating meaning you can’t take it swimming, but you can fall in the pool and take it into the shower.
- For its iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus Apple made the button haptic, so that it vibrates under your finger, rather than clicking all the way in. It still houses the fingerprint scanner, but this doesn’t function in the same way as before.
- Through Apple’s iPhone Upgrade Program, customers in the US, in the UK and China, can get an unlocked iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, with the protection of AppleCare+, choose their carrier and have the opportunity to upgrade to a new iPhone every year.
