The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are smartphones designed, developed, and marketed by Apple company. They were announced on September 7, 2016, in the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in Bay area by Apple CEO Tim Cook, and released on September 16, 2016, succeeding the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus since the current flagship devices from the iPhone series. Apple also launched the devices in 30 additional countries on September 23, 2016, and will launch in India on October 7, another 6 countries on October 14, as well as in Columbia on October 21.
The iPhone 7's overall design is similar to those of the iPhone 6S, though new color options, added water and dust resistance, a whole new capacitive home key, and most notably, the removing of the.5 mm headphone jack (an adapter for attaching wired headphones via the Lightning port, and also earphones that connect via Lightning, are offered with the phone). The devices' internal hardware also received upgrades, together with a heterogeneous quad-core system-on-chip with improved system and graphics performance, upgraded cameras (including 12 megapixel rear-facing cameras with optical image stabilization on models, as well as an additional telephoto lens around the iPhone 7 Plus model to offer enhanced zoom capabilities).
