Interestingly, It’s also 30 percent more energy efficient. It takes awesome photos, so your shots will be slightly better on the iPhone 7 as the Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) also helps. 

Its possession of the new flicker sensor also adds artificial light, for brighter images in low-light environment. The camera possesses the ability to detect faces and bodies and offers wide color capture. There’s so much effects going along with your shot, such as white balance, noise reduction, and combining multiple images. From Apple press statement during its release, it states that there are 100 billion operations going on each time you take a picture, all in the span of 25 milliseconds.

Considering the front camera of the iPhone 7, the selfie camera on the 7 and the 7 Plus has been upgraded to 7 megapixels, enriched with wide color captures and automatic image stabilization. Selfies now look sharper and smarter, this is a great improvement. Selfies are now the trending mode of taking shots on social media, so it is so imperative to have a highly sophisticated front camera. Apple’s 7-megapixels shooter is of high resolution.

The greatest gist about iPhone 7 and 7 plus is its water-resistant and dust-resistant ability, with an IP67 rating. From the official report, either iPhone 7 or 7 plus can be submerged in water of about 1 meter for 30 minutes. Several submersion tests were carried out on the two phones and they both performed wonderfully well. One was even submerged in water while playing music, miraculously, it pumped out and sounded normal.

IPhone 7 and 7plus now have two speaker grids on the bottom edge of the phones due to the absence of the 3.5mm headphone jack. In lieu of this, Apple added a new widget which is the taptic engine. This provides a haptic feedback when you press the Home button. The haptic feedback is key because the home button is not a physical button. You press the taptic engine to unlock your phone, double-press it to initiate the Apple Pay when the screen is off, and double-press it when the screen is on to activate the multitasking mode. When you press it, it responds with a small vibration.

Both screens are 25 percent brighter than the previous iPhones. 

With the absence of the headphone jack, the new iPhones now use a stereo speaker, which is fixed at the exact location of the headphone jack. To compliment the absence of the headphone jack, Apple is including a pair of lightning-connected ear pods and a converter for the 3.5mm headphone plug. The Achilles heel of these devices is that you cannot charge your phone and listen to music at the same time.

To cap all the fascinating possessions of the new iPhones, the two devices utilize a powerful processor, A10 fussion, which is Apple’s most powerful processor ever. It is a 64-bit quad-core processor which is 40 percent faster than the previous model. Apple says it’s 120 times faster than the original iPhone. Wow!
