The iPhone 7 is the latest incremental release in Apple's flagship smartphone series, the iPhone. Announced on September 8th 2016 and released on September 16, alongside the iPhone 7 Plus, the phone shows promise in a series that many said was stagnating. Breathing fresh life into the iPhone wasn't easy, but Apple appears to have done it with a slew of new features, previously not incorporated into the iPhone.
No headphone jack?
Of course, the one item sticking in many people's mind is the lack of a headphone jack. The headphone jack has been around for centuries in electronics terms - since the late 1970s, when the Walkman first brought it into the popular scene. So we're talking over 30 years of the same jack in use. When you consider the ever changing atmosphere of connector pins on electronics devices that is a really long time!
So, Apple have done away with the jack in favour of cordless headphones. How do they work? Via Bluetooth, the over the air connection standard that has been around since 1994 (also quite a long time).
For backwards compatibility, Apple do have a connector piece that can attach to the charging/data port of the iPhone 7, which is the same connector as the iPhone 6S/6. This means that if you have a regular set of headphones, you'll be able to continue using them, so long as you have the new connector jack.
The battery life has been bumped up from the iPhone 6S (1715mAH) to 1960mAH, an increase of around 14%. While this seems like good news for consumers, it really is necessary considering the headphone jackless state. Turning on the Bluetooth on your phone consumes more power than having it off; if Apple were to have stuck with the same battery life as the iPhone 6S, we would've seen a drop in the amount of hours that you could use your phone for.
You'll see an extension in the amount of hours you can use your phone for if you don't listen to music / use headphones often, otherwise you probably won't.
This latest version gives consumers something they've been calling out for for a long time, something that has been standard in many models of other flagship phones for quite some time now: water resistance. This brings the iPhone in line with the Samsung Galaxy and Sony Xperia, the two other heavyweight flagship smartphones currently on the market.
This handset has a water resistant rating of IP67, that means it gives 'protection from contact with harmful dust' (the '6' part of the rating), and 'protected from immersion in water with a depth of up to 1 meter (or 3.2ft) for up to 30 mins' (the '7' part of the rating). Not quite up to the IP68 of the Samsung and the Sony but it's definitely a good first start!

iOS 10 review
With another version of Apple's flagship iPhone (that's the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus to you and I) comes the latest release of Apple's portable device operating system, iOS 10. This latest version of iOS comes complete with a slew of super handy updates and ways to make all our lives easier.
While the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus come pre-loaded with iOS 10, even if you've got an older version of the iPhone or iPhone Plus, or indeed even an iPad, iPad Mini, or iPod, you can update to iOS 10 too.
What's new in iOS 10...
Lock screen notifications
Goodbye swipe to unlock! Your lock screen is now actually something useful instead of just a blank display. Now the lock screen will display any new notifications from your apps. This way, you're able to see an incoming email (and even read it all or delete it), all without unlocking your phone and fiddling around.
To unlock, you just use the fingerprint scanner on your Home button instead of swiping. You're also able to access quick widgets if you swipe left, and your camera if you swipe right. If this all seems a little too open and you'd like to keep things private so no snoops can see, it is, of course, configurable.
Forget scrolling through emojis to find the ideal one
If you're anything like many of us, you'll find yourself stuck scrolling through emojis on the regular, trying to find the ideal one to suit your situation, even with the most recent emojis page. In iOS 10, you now have the option to simply write your message, and the messaging app itself will highlight words or phrases corresponding to various emojis, which can then be selected to bring up a menu of matching emojis. For instance, writing happy birthday will bring up emojis such as the balloon, the present, and cake. Too easy!
An app store for your Messages app?
The Messages app also now gets its own app store, which means that you can install apps directly for use in your messages. There's a lot packed into this one. The App Store for iMessage now contains thousands of apps, from the ubiquitous sticker packs that have dominated other apps such as Snapchat, through to full on app add-ons like Airbnb. Finally, iMessage is becoming more like the other apps that we use, more useful, and more intuitive.
Preview links in Messages before you click on them
You know how in previous versions of iOS when you had a message come in with a link in it, all you could see was the link itself? Now, Apple have implemented rich text links. This means that you can now see the page title and a picture from the page itself in the message so you have at least some idea of what you are clicking on before you open it. Now we don't have to ask the sender, 'What's that?', before we open it up.
No, you don't have to tag what's in all your photos to be able to search them first. iOS 10 has this amazing new feature where it can actually look through your pictures and see what is in the actual picture! That means you can search for something by typing it in, such as 'dog', and it will bring up all the pictures that you've ever taken of dogs!
This function will no doubt be extremely useful in the future, as well as now. It's especially great for all those people with millions of snaps taken over the years that you'd forgotten about - no need to scroll through to discover old memories long forgotten.
People and places photo sorting
The new version of iOS can also recognize faces, which means it can sort your photos into collections of your brother, best friend, kid, whoever! This is great for putting together memories boards, especially of the two of you together. If also has a places function where all the pictures that you've taken in a certain place are sorted into their very own album. Neat!
We all love that 'On This Day' feature on Facebook that takes us back to what we did on Facebook on the same day each year ago. Well that's now a part of your photos on iOS 10 as well. Not only that, it looks at the dates and geotags of your photos so it can tell where and when you've been on holidays, automatically separating your pictures into 'Cairns Nov 15th-22nd, 2015', etc. The photo memories also has a 'Best of the Year' function, too. You can choose to change out photos from these collections or even make a video of the collection with music if you like, too, making for a great slideshow.
Widgets accessible by 3D touch without entering an app
If you've got an iPhone 6S or later, then 3D touch is going to start getting a whole lot more useful. You know widgets, right? Previously, widgets were only available in the notification centre, with a widget showing things like the weather where you are currently, or times in a few different time zones.
Now, using 3D touch, you're able to access app widgets directly by using 3D touch on the app icon itself. This means, for example, doing it on the Shazam app will open up the Shazam widget (not the app itself), allowing you to Shazam a song all from your homepage widget, without having to open the app at all.
The perfect sleep
You know when you're sitting there on the couch watching TV late at night and all of a sudden it's 2am and you need to get up at 6? Well, now with iOS Bedtime Alarm, you're less at risk of getting the dreaded 4 hour sleep. You can now set both a bedtime and wakeup alarm that tells you exactly how many hours of sleep you'll be getting and reminds you that it's time for bed too.
Sharing your notes
If you're a person that likes to uses the Notes app, then this one is for you. For within Notes, you now have the ability to share Notes with other people, so that they are synced between the two of you. Either just share viewing privileges, or let them edit as well, it's up to you. Great for if you write down shopping lists and your partner is out at the shops and asks if you want them to grab anything!
You know all those apps that come pre-packaged with your iPhone but you never actually use? Sure, the Calculator is useful, but Compass, Stocks? Come on. iOS 10 now gives you the ability to hide all these apps from your Home screen so that they're not annoying you and taking up space. Note that you don't have the ability to actually delete them, like you can with downloaded apps, unfortunately, but hiding them for good is the next best thing. You can always unhide too, if you find yourself lost in the bush without a compass.
Making annoying apps more intuitive: Apple Maps
Unlike its competitor, Google Maps, Apple Maps has long been the source of much frustration and derision amongst iPhone devotees. Apple have finally overhauled the Maps app in a bid to return people to their proprietary app rather than downloading someone else's app.
The maps themselves are clearer, and the top and bottom context bars are far more intuitive than its predecessor. Buttons are larger and search is easier, too. The Parked Car feature is a neat addition for Bluetooth enabled cars which allows you to track back where you last parked, too. If you've been using a different maps app, why not give Apple Maps try and see if it's going to be right for you now?
Making annoying apps more intuitive: Music
Apple's old Music app was, for many people, one that just sat idly by, as it was too confusing and annoying to use. A redesign of the app in iOS 10 seeks to change all of that. The interface is now bigger and bolder, and allows for more customization which means that you can get rid of features that you don't want on the interface, such as Apple Music. The new redesign means it's easier to listen to music than ever, so give it a spin and see.
Make sure to outfit your device with the latest accessories to help you get the most out of your phone with iOS 10.
