We have endured months of leaks and rumors, each one building more and more anticipation for Apple’s next-generation iPhone 7 which, like its predecessor, comes in standard and plus models.

Comparing to last year’s iPhone models there are huge upgrades consisting of special optical image stabilization on both devices, integrated RAW image capture feature, improved color gamut and an awesome sensor that eliminates rolling shutter artifacts. These changes will represent a major test of the trust consumers have in the iPhone.

The company has made several big announcements during its event which includes the introduction of two new iPhones and an updated Apple Watch.

There is a list into breakdown of the new products and updates:

1) iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus

iPhone 7 and 7 Plus has developed its own standard wireless headphones that connect to the new models via their charging port, along with an adapter. The Home button is still there, but it’s no longer mechanical, as it will provide touch feedback with the help of haptic engine. It feels as if you have pressed a moving button with a force sensitive that is water and dust resistant. The body is similar to 6s with two different black models: a matte model and a shiny new Jet black model.

iPhone 7 Plus have two 12-megapixel camera on the back that allows more nuanced zoom capabilities. Each camera has a different focal length, with which it is easier to pick between shooting photos with a wide-angle lens that is 40% faster than their predecessors.
