The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are the iPhone devices to feature water and dust resistance.
Force-Touch Home Button
The home button which doubles as a fingerprint scanner on the iPhone is now force-touch based button, meaning it does not press inside. Instead, it gives a sense of tap with the help of haptic engine which is a vibration motor.
3.5mm Audio Jack Is Gone

The New Jet Black

The 3D touch display further extends the usability and convenience by providing with multiple options and drop down menus based on the pressure applied to the screen.
OIS Equipped 12MP Camera
The Apple iPhone 7 is the first non-plus variant of iPhone to feature OIS (optical image stabilisation) in the primary camera; it was a much-awaited feature in the iPhone. The OIS is helpful in a plentiful of scenarios, such as it corrects the shakes caused by the user while taking image and video, it helps in letting more light into the camera sensor that results in brighter photos in the low-light conditions and much more. The 12MP primary camera now also features dual-tone quad-LED flash which has two more LED’s than its predecessor that will result in 50% more light and it can cover 50% more distance. The surprising update to the iPhone 7 is the bump in the resolution of the secondary camera to 7MP from the 5MP on the iPhone 6s. The 7MP selfie camera now yields sharper, brighter and more detailed images.

Apart from that the iOS 10 comes loaded with plenty of features added to iMessage, Maps, search and camera.
Apple A10 Fusion Chipset
The excellent software is driven with the help of Apple A10 Fusion chipset that now comes with quad-core configuration. The two cores among the four are high-performance cores which will only be working during heavy tasks and games while the other two cores are power-efficient cores that will take care of basic multitasking like calling and messaging. Apple promises 40% faster performance than the Apple A9 chipset found in its predecessor.
Increased Battery Backup
Talking about the battery backup, Apple promises 2 hours of increased web-browsing and video playback time compared to the iPhone 6s, while the standby time and the talk time remain the same. Note that the battery backup for video playback time, talk time, and music playback time are rated while using the Apple’s wireless AirPod earphones.
