Compared with the previous Apple products, the new iPhone 7 brings seven main changes, including jet black color, headphone jack, water-resistant, home button, dual cameras, new CPU and longer battery endurance.
Firstly, the most obvious feature of this new iPhone 7 is the jet black body color. A pristine, mirror-like surface and a high gloss finish make it look eye-catching and remarkable. Through a precision nine-step anodization and polishing processor, its surface is equally as hard as other anodized Apple products. However, it will scratch more easily and the finish is particularly prone to fingerprints as well.
Secondly, the lightning port has been substituted for the original headphone jack. Apple announces that this design has two advantages: freeing up space and a better connector for audio. On my opinion, Apple's real purpose is to promote its new wireless earphones Airpods.
Thirdly, it features the water-resistant. The entirely re-engineered enclosure makes the new iPhone has the waterproof function as well as the protections of spills, splashes and dust.
Fourthly, the mechanical home button has been replaced with a static version force sensitive one. With Apple's Taptic Engine to click back at users, this new design brings a pretty good user experience.
Fifthly, upgraded dual cameras offer the nice shooting experience. It comes with a 7 megapixels front camera with automatic image stabilization for the better selfie and a 12 megapixels rear camera. Most importantly, it has an improved sensor and a lens that opens up to f1.8 (previously, it was f2.2). That means much better night shots.
The sixth change of this new product is the CPU configuration. The new iPhone is powered by a new outstanding A10 Fusion SoC. Compared with the previous chip A9, this new one runs 40% faster. Apple says it is the most powerful chip that has ever been in a smartphone.
Lastly, it provides longer battery endurance than the previous Apple products. In other words, this new one's battery is the most durable of all Apple products. Compared with its previous product iPhone 6s, it will last at least 2 more hours during daily usage.
Sincerely say, I like the new changes of the water-resistant function, powerful CPU configuration and longer battery endurance. On the contrary, I think it will trouble me that it has the only port for charging and using as a headphone jack. That means I cannot listen to songs while charging.
