  • You can’t tell whether the upgrades to the iPhone 7 are worth the money, or whether you can save some cash and stick with the iPhone 6S. Well, after all, for a lot of people there’s a certain status to owning a new iPhone. Then come its features: On the one hand, the iPhone 7 has no port to plug your headphones into, and this smartphone is imbued with far superior sonic performance, a much better camera and a more pleasant-to-use screen. And when it comes to the look of the new phone, it might seem like Apple’s done very little to change the iPhone 7 design. Indeed, the iPhone 7, like the 4, 5 and 6 before it, was supposed to radically change the way the iPhone looks; however, the new dimensions and screen size are nearly identical to iPhone 6S model, meaning that if you plop a case on this phone you’ll struggle to tell the difference between them.

    Yes, the look and feel of the phone is similar to iPhones of the past three years, with the edges nicely rounded and feeling smooth in the hand.

    Why Apple has done all this? The conspiracy-based theory states that the company is just doing it to make money from the license fee manufacturers have to pay to create Lightning port headphones. And the helpful version says that the space taken up by the headphone jack means a thinner phone, and more space for battery (Apple claimed that it had taken courage to get rid of the port – whether that’s good enough remains to be seen).

    The good news is that the iPhone 7 comes with a Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack to help users make the transition. There’s also a pair of Lightning-powered Earpods, so you’ll at least not have to use the connector all the time, especially if you’re a fan of basic audio.

    Then it’s nice to see the iPhone 7 now coming in Jet Black. Sadly, this means Space Gray is now dead.

    The other big change: iPhone is now 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.

    Apple hasn’t done away with the home button as some people predicted, but it has 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.

    When you consider how iOS 10 works, with just picking up the phone firing the screen (so you can see your notifications) that makes sense here, but the lack of a tactile click is a tough one to deal with at first.

    There’s also the issue of Siri sometimes firing up when you’re pushing too hard – we’re sure it’ll come with time, but it didn’t feel as intuitive as it could have.

    Apple has been behind the curve when it comes to screen resolution for a number of years – and it clearly doesn’t care. The near-720p screen feels like a dinosaur in 2016, being seen on phones as far back as the early 2010s – but the sharpness doesn’t tell the whole story.

    Apple’s use of LCD technology, the way the screen is bonded to the glass above, and the overall color reproduction are still excellent, and greatly offset the lack of sharpness – which can be seen in side-by-side comparisons with phones like the Galaxy S7.

    Apple has also unveiled another big change: its own proprietary wireless standard. This isn’t like the Bluetooth you know, a fact that’s illustrated by the new AirPods, which you connect just by placing them by your phone. They’re wireless, but in all other ways they’re very similar to the current earpods, apart from their infrared sensors, which can tell when they’re in your ears.

    Apple hasn’t really done a huge amount to the camera on the iPhone 7, although there are a few tweaks that will make a difference when compared to the iPhone 6S.

    Live photos are obviously back, needed to make the automatic highlight reels that iOS 10 is offering up look more exciting.

    Apple is claiming the iPhone 7 can now last up to two hours longer in ‘day to day use’ mode than the iPhone 6, and an hour longer than the iPhone 6S, with a lot of these enhancements down to the new A10 Fusion chip, which also allows for low-power efficiency now that it’s been boosted to four cores – two for heavy lifting, and two for more menial tasks.
