Externally, the Apple iPhone 7 is very similar to its predecessor. Other than a smoother look and a change in antenna band placement, not much has changed. However internally this phone is full of aggressive breaks from convention. Everything inside the new iPhone’s casing is a statement about the future of this phone. The home button is no longer a physical button, but rather full of pressure sensors and haptic vibration motors that simulate the feel of a button. The new A10 Fusion processor blends two high power cores that rival laptop performance along with two low power cores that combine with a much larger capacity battery to extend lifetime by up to two hours. This generation of iPhone has also seen the headphone jack removed, and in its place, new stereo speakers.
