The iPhone 7 is here.
We got to play around with Apple’s new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus on Wednesday following the company’s big launch event in San Francisco. We also got to try out the new wireless AirPod headphones.
The new phones will be available on September 16. Here’s an early, hands-on look at what it’s like to use them.
It's super shiny. Basically a mirror. It's a fingerprint magnet. Apple also warned that it scratches easily.
The iPhone 7 Plus has a dual-lens camera with a telephoto lens. The telephoto lens lets you use optical zoom up to 2x.
See? We zoomed in on this guy's nose. Optical zoom means the photo won't get distorted when you zoom in.
The home button is now pressure sensitive. That means it doesn't physically press in. Instead, the phone vibrates when you press down. Oh yeah... and there's no headphone jack!
You'll have to use special headphones that plug into the Lightning port, wireless headphones, or an adaptor included with the iPhone 7 that works with regular headphones.
They pair to your iPhone when you flip open the case. It's way easier than pairing by poking through your settings menu.
They look just like the wired EarPods, just without the wires on the end. They also have a microphone so you can make phone calls.
