Apple iPhone 7 Plus product details

The Apple iPhone 7 Plus was announced together with the iPhone 7 in September 2016. Where the iPhone 7 hardly differs from its predecessor, this iPhone 7 Plus has a lot of innovations. We're going to check them out here.

Why 2 is better than 1

We'll start with the biggest change right away. On the back is now a double 12 megapixel iSight camera. Two see more than one, but that's not what Apple uses it for. The iPhone 7 Plus uses its dual camera to zoom in sharper. Usually we don't recommend zooming in on a mobile phone because this is done digitally. Pixels have to be 'made up' and that never results in sharp images. If you still want sharp pictures up close, you really have to move yourself. With the iPhone 7 Plus, Apple has cleverly solved that 'problem'. One camera has a wide-angle lens while the other is equipped with a telephoto zoom lens. If you zoom in, the iPhone 7 Plus automatically switches to that last camera. This all happens without you even noticing it, and completely automatically. You can zoom in optically up to 2x, digitally up to 10x. You also have an extra recording mode thanks to the 2nd camera. You can choose the new depth-of-field mode. This makes the background extra out of focus so that your subject jumps out of the picture even better. This creates the same effect as expensive DSLR cameras.

Main Apple iPhone 7 Plus specifications

  • Double 12 megapixel camera with 2x optical zoom, 10x digital
  • Dustproof and waterproof thanks to IP67 housing

  • Retina HD screen of 5.5 inches with wider color gamut and up to 25% brighter
  • Available in 32, 128 and 256GB storage, Jet Black starts at 128GB
  • Faster 4G internet speeds (up to 450Mbit/s)
  • Wired headset only through adapter (dongle)

Outer differences

This year's Apple iPhone 7 Plus is fully dust and water resistant. The case is completely sealed off from the elements. One victim did demand this; the headphone jack had to give way. If you want to use your own favorite headphones from now on, you'll need an adapter. It comes standard with the iPhone 7 Plus. In terms of appearance, there's still something new to report; for example, the home button has been completely revamped. At first glance it looks the same, but appearances can be deceiving. It's no longer a mechanical button. Just like the Force Touch trackpads in MacBook laptops, it's a pressure-sensitive button that creates the illusion of pushing a button with just a little vibration. It may take some getting used to at first, but it opens up new possibilities for app developers, for example.

Faster, better and more

Apple provides the iPhone 7 Plus with a faster A10 Fusion processor that's 40% more powerful than its predecessor. Compared to the very first iPhone, the chip in this iPhone 7 Plus is no less than 120 times faster. Graphically, that's even 240 times! Apps start up faster and games look better. Apple also tinkered with the Retina display. Now it can display more colors and is up to a quarter brighter. It's still pressure-sensitive. Thanks to this 3D Touch, you can view a message without opening it at the touch of a button. Apple has also been able to increase the battery life of your device. Now it lasts an hour longer. Apple also hopes to make up for the lack of a headphone jack with stereo speakers. Apple doesn't really add an extra speaker, it uses the speaker to make calls. It provides 50% extra sound.

Apple settles in deliberately slowing down iPhones

Remarkable ·

Apple reached a settlement in a lawsuit filed by people whose iPhone was deliberately slowed down.

The group of Americans can now expect a compensation of 46 dollars each. They had an iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus or iPhone SE. Anyone running iOS 10.2.1 or later automatically got a speed reduction. According to Apple, not to encourage them to buy a new iPhone, but to save the battery.

According to Apple, people with the iPhones mentioned above could be confronted with a spontaneous battery drop out during intensive use. To prevent this, the device was deliberately reduced in speed. Apple later added the option in iOS to enable or disable this behavior. Many consumers switched to a new iPhone while a battery swap was sufficient. Apple started a large scale battery replacement program that became a huge success. In 2018 it replaced no less than 11 million batteries.

Disable energy management function

The settlement will cost Apple $310 million. Apple admitted the poor communication about deliberately slowing down iPhones. Something that already happens when the battery capacity dropped below 80% of its original capacity. In the meantime you can turn off the 'feature' under Settings > Battery and then turn off the power management function. Under Battery condition > Peak performance you can see if that is a smart move or it it's more sensible to replace the battery completely. For less than 100 euros you usually have a new battery which is always cheaper than a new iPhone.
