iPhone 7 is latest device from apple. As we already know that Apple launches there flagship devices every year and everyone goes crazy that what will apple provide innovated in this year. Apple made many changes in iPhone 7 compare to its previous successor iPhone 6s. There is no big change but minor changes is made with new iPhone 7. Take a look at quick specifications then we will discuss more about the new iPhone.


Moving to the display, The iphone 7 bears a 4.7 750*1334p IPS display which comes with Ion-strengthened glass, oleophobic coating protection. Apple claimed the the display of iphone 7 is 25% more brighter than iPhone 6s. The new Retina HD display on iPhone 7 also integrates 3D Touch like iphone 6s but with great improvements.
There was rumoured that new iPhone could have been sports a curved display but apple made them false by adding normal IPS display.

Design and Build Quality

Apple iPhone 7 comes with improved design. but In a world of curved eye-popping displays, the iPhone now looks a little old-fashioned. It’s slim and attractive and still very well-designed, but the iPhone 7 looks just like the iPhone 6 and 6S.
Apple smoothed out the seams that used to hide the phone’s antennae, so the aluminum around the back looks smoother. The camera bump is larger, by just a bit. There is color which apple added is jet black which gives you attration to buy iPhone 7. Apple also redesigned the home button.You won’t wear down the button, though, because it doesn’t move. Overall design and build quality is great.


Apple stick with 12 MP camera as we already seen in iPhone 6s. But the big upgrade over iPhone 6s is OIS (optical image stabilisation). The slightly wider f1.8-aperture lens also lets in more light for low-light photos. OIS and that new lens both make a difference in everyday shots.The 12-megapixel camera’s other improvements, including a new ISP for other image improvements, might be too subtle for casual point-and-shooters to appreciate.


The four-LED flash is brighter, and helped light up a room so well I could even shoot a barely passable photo of the darkened room next door. Note that Live Photo slows down the shutter speed, so turn it off for faster shots. Apple upgraded front facing camera to 7 MP which was 5 MP on iPhone 6s. It seems great for selfies and videos. So iPhone made great improvements over iPhone 6s in terms of camera quality.

Hardware and Performance

iPhone 7 is powered by Apple’s new chipset Fusion A10. Which is 2x faster than Apple’s previous generation A9 chip according to Apple. iPhone 7 also comes with improved software optimisations.

Bettery life is major issue with iPhones. iPhone 7 adopted slighty bigger battery than iPhone 6s. There is 1960 mAh battery packs inside iPhone 7. We can’t expect long run but still there are some improvement in hardware so it should have been batter battery life then iPhone 6s. You must have to pay somewhre if you want sleek design.
