Apple Officially Reveals iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus


We already know that it’s water resistant, has stereo speakers, and has a brand new camera (because Apple accidentally tweeted about it earlier today). But Apple is finally unveiling the next-gen iPhone officially, and everything seems fairly in line with what rumors have been suggesting all summer.

The body is quite similar to the iPhone 6s, but it’s SHINY! Essentially, they used robots to spin the aluminum bodies through sand to make it insanely shiny. They call it “Jet Black.” It comes with a stainless steel Apple logo and the body is supposed to merge seamlessly with the glass display.

There’s also a “black” model, which comes with a black Apple logo, along with your standard gold, rose gold and silver options.

Essentially, the black will come in both matte and glossy.

Home Button

The Home Button will now rely on Apple’s haptic engine, just like new Mac trackpads. It won’t actually click, but it’ll feel like it.

Water and Dust Resistance

The new iPhones will be more durable than any that have come before, at least when it comes to serious corruption from water and dust. The next-gen models meet the IP67 protection standard, which is good enough to briefly drop it in a pool (or, more likely, a toilet) but not good enough to shower with regularly.

Camera

The new iPhones will have optical image stabilization, allowing for up to 3x longer exposure. The iPhone 7 camera has a six-element, 1.8 aperture lens, a 12 megapixel sensor that is 60 percent faster, with a quad-LED flash with 50 percent light output. Plus, the iPhone 7 will have a 7-megapixel front camera, up from a 5-megapixel camera on the iPhone 6s.

But, as I’m sure you’re wondering, that doesn’t account for all those dual-lens camera rumors we heard all summer.

we will update the article once we get more information
