Apple unveils iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus in 5 colors, A10 fusion chip, Airpods, no headphone jack

So finally the long wait comes to an end and the world’s biggest tech company Apple Inc has finally unveiled its most popular gadget that people from around the world were eagerly waiting for since last one year.

The company’s CEO Tim Cook announced iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus during a special event held at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, San Francisco fully packed with several thousand people on September 7, 2016 at 10:00 (PDT).

The speculation about new iPhone being called iPhone 6SE proved wrong when after unveiling next generation Apple iWatch (Series 2), Tim Cook announced iPhone 7 !

The iPhone 7 comes with lots of interesting feature which will make your life super easy.

Many new updates at app store such as addition of Pokemon go, Super Mario run games, iWork app for real time collaboration, stunning design, five different colors, A10 fusion chip which is 2x times faster than A9, upgraded RAM, 32 GB base model are some of the interesting things to look at. Let’s dive in much greater details

Design – Apple says its the best design they have made for any iPhone so far but for me it looks broadly similar to iPhone 6S with a little changes.

The curved smooth edges of iPhone 7 makes it look pretty much identical to its predecessor, doing away from with antenna lines. Both iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be available in five different   colors.

In addition to silver, gold & rose gold, iPhone 7 comes in Black (matte) and Jet Black color. However the Jet Black will cost you extra bucks as it is available for 128 GB and 256 GB storage option only.

You’ll not get this color for 32 GB option. The Home button is redesigned and whats new about is, it is force sensitive and doesn’t click downward when you press it, rather it creates illusion by vibration because of taptic engine.

It gives the same feel as if you’re pressing the mechanical button downward. Isn’t it amazing?

Camera – This is awesome ! while I was watching the event, the demonstration and the reviews from well known photographers in the world blown me away.

The iPhone 7 have tremendously improved 12 Megapixel primary camera and 7 megapixel HD front facing camera with f/1.8 aperture, Apple-designed ISP, high speed sensor, six element lens, true tone flash (Flicker sensor) takes the photography experience with iPhone to the next level.

iPhone 7 Plus is one step ahead with two 12 megapixel cameras that helps in better optical zoom and clicking clearer photographs of distant object.

In an event the speaker said the iPhone 7 camera may not be comparable to DSLR but its the best camera that iPhone ever had Or any other smartphone have.

The Apple-designed ISP (Image Signal Processor) performs 100 billion operations on the photos in just 25 mili seconds.

The new Quad LED true tone flash is 50% more brighter than iPhone 6S that compensate for flickering in the light.

Water and Dust Resistant – Although late but finally we have iPhone which is water and dust proofed to IP67 standards. You need not to worry about carrying your expensive device during rainy days, your phone is safe till 1 meter depth and 30 minutes of water as per the standards.

Although the rival Galaxy S7 is water & dust resistant to IP68 standards, a step ahead !

Ratina HD Display – Both the iPhone comes with Ratina HD display have screen sizes same as iPhone 6S and 6S plus, ie. 4.7 and 5.5 inches with  1334 x 750 and1920x 1080 pixel density respectively.

The screen is 25% more brighter than its predecessor with wide color gamut and color management that makes iPhone 7 the best display smartphone in the world !

Audio – Music is in our blood, we can’t live without music and no smartphone can be better than iPhone 7. With stereo speakers at top and the bottom which is 2x louder than predecessor, you can have the best sounding experience ever. Both the speakers are well apart to produce great stereo effect.

EarPods – The rumours turned out to be true and Apple removed 3.5 mm jack used for listening to the music. You’ll now use Earpods with lightening connector to connect.

The company love experimentation, innovation and something new that could make user experience better. The decision of removal of headphone jack was tough but the company came up with a great innovation.

Airpods – This is one of the greatest innovation of the company with release of iPhone 7. This device amazed me with its Break-through design, incredible sound & 5 hours of listening with single charge.

Airpods is powered by Apple W1 chip that makes it the best wireless headphone ! The disappointment (atleast to some people) is, you will have to pay $159 for this device, but its worthy !

iOS 10 – The iPhone 7 have iOS 10, the best operating system in the world with lots of new features such as iWork that will help with real time collaboration, Map redesigned, addition of new stickers & effects in iMessage, HomeKit for home automation etc.

Other Specification – The iphone 7 comes with 2.53 Ghz 64 bits quad core processor coupled with A10 fusion chip, 2GB RAM (3GB for iPhone 7 Plus), six core GPU for ultra fast processing even at multi-tasking.

Your phone wouldn’t hang at the time of playing games while the other app is running in the background.

The iPhone 7 basic models starts with 32 GB storage and and goes upto 256 GB for top model. The Jet black option doesn’t come in 32 GB variant, it is only available for 128 & 256 GB options.

Battery – There is great improvement in battery and both have Li-ion battery that can last upto 14 hours (talk time) on 3G.

Price – The phones are unveiled on September 7, 2016 and will be available for pre-order starting September 9 and the shipment will start from September 16th onwards. To start, the iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus will be available for the US, UK & China while several other country people will have their hands on it in coming weeks.

As far as the price is concern, the company kept it fairly good. You can purchase iPhone 7 32 GB for $649 and iPhone 7 Plus 32 GB for $749 without contract however if you want to go with a contract, you can have iPhone 7 for $27/month and iPhone 7 Plus for $32/month contract.
