On the seventh day the designers rested. In came the engineers. And the master of controversy struck again.

Apple is proud of the bold move of removing the audio jack. But in pretty much every other aspect they've seemingly taken the conservative route. On the outside, the new iPhone looks basically the same as the iPhone 6/6s.

Well, it's not as easy as that. The iPhone 7 is in many ways a better phone. We can see some of the issues we had with the last iPhone sorted and, no, we are not claiming credit for it - simply acknowledging the fact.

Waterproofing, stereo speakers and, finally, reasonable storage options - and that's on top of the usual performance upgrades we've come to take for granted every year. Think this is the story of the iPhone 7? Apple's first water-resistant handset, first quad-core processor, first pair of stereo speakers on a phone.

Not trying to build suspense. The story has been hijacked and you know it. But we're going to tell it anyway.

Key features

 

  • Water-proof metal unibody with redesigned, less-obtrusive antenna strips
  • 4.7" 16M-color LED-backlit IPS LCD of 750 x 1334px resolution, 326ppi, wide color gamut, 3D Touch tech
  • Pressure-sensitive Home key powered by a brand new Taptic Engine
  • Quad-core (2+2) 64-bit Apple CPU, hexa-core GPU, 2GB of RAM, Apple A10 Fusion SoC
  • 12MP F/1.8 camera with a quad-LED flash, optical image stabilization, phase detection auto focus, wide color capture, 2160p@30fps video recording
  • 7MP F/2.2 front-facing camera with BSI sensor and HDR mode, 1080p@30fps video
  • Comes in 32, 128, and 256GB of built-in storage
  • Second-gen Touch ID fingerprint sensor
  • 4G LTE Cat.12 (600Mbps); Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac; Bluetooth 4.2; Lightning port; GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS; NFC (Apple Pay only)
  • 1,960mAh battery

 

Main shortcomings

 

  • No 3.5mm audio jack (ships with a Lightning to 3.5mm adapter)
  • No microSD slot
  • No dual-camera of the iPhone 7 Plus
  • NFC functionality limited to Apple Pay
  • Still no fast or wireless charging, no IR port or FM radio
  • No user-replaceable battery
  • Scratch-prone Jet Black model
  • Screen resolution not flagship-grade

Once you wrap your head around the missing audio jack (it's not the end of it, you can get a designated adapter for your favorite headphones), the Apple iPhone 7 is a major upgrade. IP67-certified water-resistant body. Bigger and brighter camera with OIS. New FaceTime cam. Stereo speakers. Faster processor and 50% GPU performance increase, more RAM. New pressure-sensitive Home key powered by a new taptic engine. Revised storage options.

The new Home button, rather the lack thereof, is nearly as controversial as the missing audio jack. Apple used the same taptic engine behind the MacBook's trackpad, so things might actually turn out better there.

Apple doubled the storage capacity on all three flavors, so it finally starts at 32GB, the other two being 128GB or 256GB. Unfortunately, fast or wireless charging still doesn't mean anything to Apple, which is a shame in 2016.

Anyway, the iPhone 7 is ready to get unwrapped, so let's get to it. Head to the next page for our traditional hardware and exterior checkup.
