Water resistance

It is the first time Apple launched a water resistance phone. Apple has always been very sensitive in regards to their phones in contact with water, even the warranty will not include any water damage. This time, Apple has launched an Ingress Protection (IP) of 67 phone. In other words, the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus will be with total protection against dust and against immersion between 15 cm to 1 meter.


For the first time, iPhone has stereo audios. Replacing the 3.55 mm headphone jack, the dual speakers which are placed at bottom flanking the lightning port has twice the audio output of iPhone 6s.


Apple has a one-word explanation for why it killed the headphone jack: Courage. Known to be wireless, effortless, magical, finally untangled. The Airpods have used a custom-designed W1 wireless chip instead of Bluetooth. With a single charge, it works for 5 hours (15 minutes charging = 3 hours charged). Providing rich, high-quality AAC audio. Embedded with dual beam forming microphones help filter out background noise when making phone calls.
