Hardware and camera
Of course, Apple has the new iPhone with better hardware. For example, there is a more powerful A10-chip on board with as many as four computing cores. Two of them are meant for heavy tasks and come only in action when needed, for example when playing games. This makes the chip more energy efficient, which should ensure that the battery of the iPhone last longer.
Furthermore, the 12 megapixel camera of the iPhone 7 improved. He has a higher light sensitivity, optical image stabilization, and a stronger Flash. At the front is a 7-megapixel camera for still sharper selfies.
The biggest new camera feature is exclusive to the iPhone 7 Plus: a dual camera. This consists of two lenses with 12 megapixels, where one works like wide angle lens and the other as a telephoto lens. That means you can create recordings with this camera both very spacious thanks to the wide angle lens as zoomed photos (2 x optical zoom) with the telephoto lens.
It is also possible with this double camera depth of field in your photos; the portrait on the front is sharp and the background remains vague. These photos are partly made possible by the ‘ self-learning dual-camera system ‘ of the iPhone 7, but there is also some additional software is needed. That is not yet available at the launch of the smartphone.
Screen, home button and stereo speaker
Although the screen of the iPhone has the same Retina-resolution 7 as its predecessor, there is what changed. The iPhone has a trick learned from the 9.7 7-inch iPad Pro. He has a wider color range, which means that there are more colors are displayed. Your eyes still more vivid photos and games pieces more beautiful. Also, the brightness is cranked up, which makes the screen easier to read in direct sunlight.

Finally, the sound of the iPhone 7 improved if you don’t have headphones connected. The unit has stereo speakers! Press and hold the iPhone 7 in the portrait mode, then you notice there, by the way, any of it. Only the speaker at the bottom produces sound. Turn the unit a quarter turn, then acts as a second phone-speaker stereo speaker. A similar technique used Apple at the iPad Pro. The four speakers of the tablet adapt on the way you hold the iPad.
