Apple iPhone 7 unboxing: hands-on with the speedy new water-resistant iPhone

22

Apple's latest iPhone seems destined to stir up controversy. Will dropping the familiar analog headphone jack prove to be a bad move? Are users going to miss the clicky Touch ID home button? Nevertheless, shoppers are flocking to the new hardware in droves, and it wasn't long after pre-orders opened last week that ship times started slipping out into late September, October, and beyond.

But if you did manage to get your iPhone 7 order in - or just found success by standing in line earlier today - you finally have the chance to try out Apple's latest handset for yourself today. If your unit is still on backorder, or you just want the chance to really see what Apple's offering before making up your mind about ordering an iPhone 7 yourself, we have just the ticket for you, as we unbox the brand-new iPhone.

Inside our box we find a gold iPhone 7, the new Lightning-equipped EarPods, Lightning-to-USB cable, charging adapter, and Apple paperwork, including a quick-start guide, warranty info, and a couple Apple stickers. And if those new digital EarPods aren't your cup of tea, or you'd rather just keep on using your favorite analog headphones, Apple includes a Lightning-to-audio adapter in the package.

Stay tuned for our full review of the iPhone 7 coming soon (hopefully joined by some hands-on time with the new iPhone 7 Plus, as well), but for now, sit back and enjoy our unboxing footage:
