A new report claims that the iPhone 7 can record 4K video with 60fps, up from 30fps.
One big area of improvement in the iPhone 7 are the cameras. The iPhone 7 will have new camera design with larger lens and improved sensor. A report from Vietnamese Tinthe claims that Apple improved 4K video recording from 30fps in the iPhone 6S to 60fps. The higher frame rate eats away storage even more than 30fps 4K video. The improved video recording capability is in line with the dramatically increased storage capacity option on the iPhone 7. Customers can choose to get up to 256GB, starting at 32GB.

The writer of the report is claiming that he had hands-on time with a working iPhone 7. The device is ready, as an earlier report says that Foxconn is shipping 370,000 iPhone 7 right now from a Chinese airport.
The report also confirms once again that the home button changes from mechanical to touch sensitive.
The iPhone 7 has leaked over the past months in the shape of components and rear shells. Apple chose to keep the design of the iPhone 6 for the iPhone 7. The rear shell design has been improved, pushing the antenna lines to the edges and making the lens setting part of the housing.
The iPhone 7 will be the first iPhone to have no 3.5mm audio jack and start at 32GB storage. It will also be the first iPhone that can be configured with 256GB storage. A dual camera option is also coming and the new iPhone 7 is expected to be IP67 waterproof.
Other features of the iPhone 7 include the faster A10 CPU (30% more power). Apple sticks to 2GB of RAM in the new iPhone, shipping on Friday, September 16. A leaked iPhone identifier suggests that there will be three iPhone 7 models: 4.7-inch iPhone 7, 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus and 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Pro with dual camera and smart connector.
Apple is changing the color options and Apple fans will be able to choose from 5 colors including the new shiny or glossy black and a darker space gray.
