Do you know that the new iPhones have no headphone jack?
You must have heard about iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus if you’ve been current on the internet. Well, it’s not yet released but should be available in stores by September 16.
Let’s take a look at the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
They’re both covered with aluminum which has been spin through sand to make them super shiny. The iPhones are in various colors; silver, standard gold, rose gold, and black options.
Apple logo is pegged at the back and is made of stainless steel.
The black model comes with a black Apple Logo and is of two variants; the glossy and matte models.
The home button is designed in a way that it won’t actually click but will feel like it clicks. It’ll rely on Apple’s Taptic engine.
The next generation iPhones are more durable and water resistant.
They meet the IP67 protection standard. This means that they’re resistant to water when they drop in the pool or toilet.

The cameras of the new iPhones are packed with innovation. They both come with optical stabilization which will allow for 3x longer exposure.
iPhone 7 is equipped with a 12 MP back camera and a 7 MP rear camera. The camera is 60 percent faster than that of iPhone 6s and is accompanied by a quad-LED flash.
Amazingly, iPhone 7 Plus packs two 12 MP cameras at the back which enable wide angle and telephoto. The device allows 10x zoom; one of the camera lenses gives 1x zoom while the other gives 2x zoom.

Apple needed space for Taptic engine and dual camera, so it decided to do away with the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack.
The jack has been replaced with lightning port. Earpods will now connect via the lightning port. Before you become worried, let me give you the glad tiding that lighting Earpods will be included in the box.
The new iPhones are enhanced with stereo speakers.
Apple has taken the initiative to introduce Airpods. They’re wireless options that play your audio by using infrared sensors to detect when they’re in your ears.
Setting up the Airpods can be done in simple steps. Just connect them to your iPhone once and they’ll sync over iCloud to your other devices. The Airpods offer up to 5 hours playback time.
