iPhone 7 FAQs – Frequently Asked Questions
Are you a planning to get an iPhone 7 or currently own one? Do you have any questions about it? Here’s Sydney CBD Repair Team answering those queries.
Does it come with iOS 10?
It sure does. No update needed. By the time you unbox your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, iOS 10 will already be kicking it, drinking a beer, and waiting for you to get the grill heated up.
How much is it going to set me back?
The iPhone 7 starts at $649.
It will be available in the following storage capacities: 32GB, 128GB, & 256GB
The Jet Black model only comes in 128GB and 256GB.
Through Apple’s Upgrade Program, U.S., UK and China customers can get an unlocked iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus with AppleCare+ for monthly payments as low as $32.
What’s with the new color?
Yup. And it’s called “Jet Black.”
Apple has redesigned the exterior of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus with an aluminum casing that is covered with a high-gloss glass exterior. The antenna is embedded into the body of the case for better reception quality. It is sleek, shiny, and not entirely unlike the models prior to the iPhone 4.
Is this a powerful device?
The Apple A10 Fusion Processor is a 64-bit four-core powerhouse. Two are high-performance cores that are 40% faster than the A9. The other two are high-efficiency cores that use 1/5 the power so you can get longer battery life. The Apple-design performance controller will smartly choose which chip to use, depending on what you are doing on your iPhone. GPU performance is 40 percent better than the A9 chip. The iPhone’s motion chip, the M-series, has also been upgraded to M10.
Apple did not mention RAM, but we believe it remains the same as the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus at 2GB.
Is it waterproof?
No. But, it is more water-resistant than ever before with an IP67 standard. So, if you fall in the pool (or drop it in the toilet), you won’t be up a creek without a paddle.
Is the display anything new?
Nope. This iPhone 7 has a Retina HD display with 1334 X 750 resolution at 326 ppi. The iPhone 7 Plus has a Retina HD display with 1920 X 1080 resolution at 401 ppi.
They both sport wide color gamut with 625 cd/m2 max brightness and dual-domain pixels.

What’s new with the home button?
It’s a little confusing to us, too. At least right now. But, from what we understand, the Home button now has a taptic engine so you can get a little buzz on your finger when you do certain things. Thanks to force touch sensitivity, it can access quick actions, messages, notifications, ringtones, and third-party apps. It is also customizable. What that means, exactly, we’ll have to find out.
Has the battery life improved?
It sure has! You’ll get at least one hour more on iPhone 7 Plus than its predecessor and at least two hours more on iPhone 7.
How about the speakers?
Speakers are now stereo with increased dynamic range. Maybe that’s why Apple got rid of the 3.5mm headphone jack?
Goodbye, audio jack?
I’m sorry to have to tell you this, but your ancient, outdated 3.5mm headphone jack is no more. I feel your pain. I didn’t want to lose it either. But, the good news is that you can still listen to wired headphones, thanks to the included Lightning to 3.5mm adapters with digital-audio converters that come with every new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
