Apple says, that the A10 fusion chip, is 40% faster, than the iPhone 6. We can expect a lot of performance gains. And because of the low-performance cores, apple says we should get about two hours extended battery life, compared to the iPhone 6s.

The jet black is a piano super glossy finish. It’s the slipperiest iPhone and be super prone to scratches.

8. iPhone 7 display
Display, the screen resolution is the same but it’s 25% brighter with a wider colour gamut. So colours will pop a little bit more.

10. iPhone 7 Air Pods

The wireless Air pods, that need to be bought separately, pair easily, they come in a charging battery case, it charges them, flip open the top of the case to connect and when you use them in your ears, it uses proximity sensors to switch audio. There’s a touch sensitivity on the back you can double tap to use the microphone or talk to Siri.
