Description

The Apple iPhone 7 Plus is here - big, capable, and long-lasting as its predecessor. While its overall size and shape have been left intact, the latest models comes in two new shades - matter black and shiny Jet Black. Also, the phone is now resistant to water and dust ingress, bearing IP67 certification. One of the highlights of the iPhone 7 Plus is on its back. The phone's dual-camera setup allows it to take better low-light shots, just like the iPhone 7. However, the secondary camera also gives it 2x optical zoom capabilities, as well as the option to add beautiful background blur effect to images. Battery life has been given a welcome boost that could provide users around 1 hour of additional use time. The new A10 Fusion chip is up to 40% more powerful than last-year's A9, yet promises great power efficiency. And while the iPhone 7 lacks an audio jack, the box includes Lightning connector EarPods, as well as a Lightning to 3.5mm adapter.
