The iPhone 7 Plus is Apple’s highest-end offering in the current market. While the device looks largely like its predecessor, the iPhone 6S Plus, the Cupertino-based company did make meaningful changes as well.

Apple’s dual lens camera debuted in the iPhone 7 Plus, and the technology definitely shows. The photo-quality is notably better than any of its predecessors especially when taking low-light images. The new camera system also allows users to zoom in to images twice as much, which is more significant in terms of quality rather than actual distance.

The iPhone 7 Plus also improves from its predecessors in terms of battery life. In addition, the new A10 processor from Apple and the 3GB of RAM allow it to work quicker than the iPhone 6S Plus. The Cupertino-based company also made improvements to the home button, which provides better feedback, is more responsive and is generally easier to use in the current Apple flagship.

Water resistancy was also included into the iPhone 7 Plus, which has an IP67 rating. This technically means that the device can be submerged only until a meter of water for a maximum of 30 minutes. It has been speculated that the infamously missing 3.5mm audio jack is a reason for this new feature.
