Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus takes the familiar iPhone and tweaks it once again. It doesn’t possess new design changes or massive innovations, it offers everything the iPhone 7 does — speedy performance, water resistance, loud speakers, great cameras. The only real differences are the dual camera that offers Portrait mode, which when enabled, zooms in to the “telephoto” lens, keeping the subject sharp and blurring out the background for a nice bokeh effect.
