Each year we are treated to an iteration of the ever-popular iPhone range. For 2016, we have the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Keeping to the same sizes as last year's models, improvements have been made to the screen colouration, speakers, cameras, battery life and processor performance.
Subtle changes to the design mark the differences between the 6S models and the 7. One of the bigger changes is the departure from a physically clickable home button. Unlike the previous iPhone models, the home button is now a simple touchpad. You can use this in conjunction with Apple's TouchID system for fingerprint access to the phone, or use it similarly to a traditional button thanks to directional vibrations.
Apple uses 7000 series aluminium to create a solid unibody construction. The colouring for each of the 5 finishes - silver, gold, rose gold and the new black and jet black - is mixed with the metal so the paintwork goes all the way through, minimising the effect of daily wear and tear.
Dual speakers have also been introduced to allow for a stereo speaker system. This makes the iPhone 7 twice as loud as the iPhone 6s, with more nuanced and detailed sound when listening to music.
Apple has been heard to say that more pictures get taken with iPhones than any other camera in the world. Whether you believe that statement or not, the cameras are undoubtedly very important to the iPhone.
The new 12 MP main camera on iPhone 7 has a f/1.8 aperture and six-element lens for excellent results in varied scenarios, from brightly lit hilltops to dingy nightclubs.
Improvements to the camera system include optical image stabilisation. This adjusts and compensates for the natural movement or shake of your hands and removes any blur from the final results. A sensor within the lens counteracts tiny movements, especially useful if you take pictures on a longer exposure.
Apple has also introduced a quad (4) LED flash system. This is up to 50% brighter then iPhone 6S flash. It's intelligent too, adjusting brightness to the colour temperature of the room and your subjects for more flattering and properly lit pictures.
Video recording is available in 4K resolution, with options for slow motion and time lapse at 1080p high definition.
The FaceTime HD camera has had the resolution improved to 7 megapixels. Up your selfie game or just treat your FaceTime recipients to a sharper image of your lovely self! The Retina Flash on the front of the iPhone 7 has also been improved to better light close up portraits in low light situations.
An image signal processor is built directly into the iPhone 7's A10 processor chip. This dedicated imaging hardware helps with faster autofocusing, image processing and colour mapping so you can keep shooting all day.
The size and resolution of the iPhone 7 screen is the same as last year, however, Apple has improved the brightness by 25%, excellent for outdoor use.
The colour palette has also been widened and is now up to the same standard as digital cinema. This means there are more shades of the colour spectrum able to be shown, resulting in more realistic representation for your photos, videos and downloads. Netflix has never looked so good on the go!
3D Touch has also been revamped. iOS10 and the iPhone 7 hardware work together seamlessly to allow you to interact and react to messages, notifications and calendar elements in more responsive and meaningful methods.
The A10 processor is the fastest Apple have ever produced. Up to twice as fast at a given task as the iPhone 6, advanced power management also makes this the iPhone with the longest battery life.
This is thanks to a quad-core design that more intelligently handles tasks, allowing the iPhone 7 to multitask better than ever. The graphics processing has also been enhanced. Games run more smoothly and video rendering is quicker than ever.
The first iPhone to receive an IP rating, iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are rated IP67. This means they are both engineered to be resistant to water and splashes.
