The first 7 apps you should download for your new iPhone 7

You’ve managed to get your hands on a new iPhone 7, and now you need to download some apps.

We’ve handpicked seven of the best apps that show off the new iPhone’s upgraded camera and iOS 10 software. These apps will help you take better pictures, find places to eat, quickly send people money with Siri, and more.

Put the iPhone 7's upgraded camera to the test with Adobe Lightroom.


Not only is Adobe Lightroom an impressive mobile editing app, but it can also shoot photos in full resolution RAW (or DNG) format, which is the same format used by professional photographers.

Adobe Lightroom is free to download in the App Store.

Use Siri to get a ride with Uber.


Third-party apps like Uber and WhatsApp can be controlled with Siri in iOS 10. Once the Uber app is installed on your iPhone, just tell Siri something like 'Get me an Uber ride' and you'll be on your way.

(Lyft also supports Siri in iOS 10.)

Uber is free to download in the App Store.

Get smart notifications about where to eat and drink with Foursquare.


iOS 10's expanded notifications let apps like Foursquare send more than just text to your lockscreen.

Foursquare's smart notifications, for example, can use your taste in restaurants and past visits to send custom recommendations with photos and locations when you're out and about.

Foursquare is free to download in the App Store.

Square Cash can send your friends money in iMessage or with Siri.
