Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus

Apple's latest iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have new cameras, better performance and battery life, a new home button, and are now water resistant. Apple has also changed the antenna lines, making the back of the phone look more seamless. There's also two new colors -- jet black, which has a glossy appearance, and black, which has more of a matte look.

The new camera on the iPhone 7 is 12MP on the back, with a 7MP FaceTime camera on the front. The iPhone 7 Plus has a new two-camera system comprised of a wide-angle and telephoto camera. This allows for a 2x optical zoom and digital zoom up to 10x. Both the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have optical image stabilization as well.

iPhone 7 now has an A10 Fusion chip and a slightly larger battery. It has a new home button that works by simulating the button click instead of physically pressing down. The screen is brighter and has a wider color gamut, and the Wi-Fi and LTE speeds are faster.

iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have stereo speakers that can get two times louder than the iPhone 6s. Because of this, and some of the other features of iPhone 7, Apple had to eliminate the 3.5mm headphone jack. This means Apple is including a pair of EarPods that use the Lightning connector along with a dongle to adapt current headphones to Lightning. Apple also announced wireless 'AirPods' that use a special W1 chip and Bluetooth to connect.

iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are available with 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB of internal storage. It comes in Jet Black, Black, Silver, Gold, and Rose Gold colors, and starts at $769.
