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.
