New Features of iPhone 7 and 7 Plus
An advanced new camera systems.
iPhone is the most popular camera in the world. Now we've reengineered that beloved camera, adding optical image stabilization, an f/1.8 aperture, and a six-element lens to make it even better for shooting photos and videos in low light. And with advanced new features like wide color capture, your photos and Live Photos will look even more vibrant.
iPhone 7 Plus doesn't have just one entirely new camera system - it has two. The same 12MP wide-angle camera that's on iPhone 7 works with a 12MP telephoto camera that can get even closer. That means you can get higher-quality zoom from farther away. And with an all-new depth-of-field effect (coming soon), portrait shots will look better than ever. Say hello to the world's best photo op.
The best performance and battery life ever in an iPhone.
With the A10 Fusion chip, this year you'll get more time between charges than ever before. Take advantage of up to two more hours on iPhone 7 and up to one more hour on iPhone 7 Plus than the previous generation.
Immersive stereo speakers.
A second speaker joins the iPhone to give you stereo speakers. There's now one at the bottom and one at the top. this is brand-new for Apple.
The brightest, most colorful iPhone display.
More colors. More true to life. With a new wide color gamut, the Retina HD display is able to deliver cinema standard colors - and the best color management in the smartphone industry. More shades of the color spectrum can be used to create an image, meaning that what you see on the screen is a truer representation of the world. So whether you're checking out photos of that perfect dress or Live Photos you took in the tropics, the colors will be so accurate, it will look like you're there.
