As predicted, the new black colors are the most appealing for the iPhone 7. The iPhone 7 Plus is more attractive not just because of the bigger screen, but because of the dual lens camera. The black versions of the iPhone 7 are starting to get delayed with some models showing delivery in 2 to 3 weeks.
The iPhone 7 is the first iPhone that starts with 32GB and has now 3.5mm headphone jack. Feature highlights include A10 Fusion CPU, improved 12MP camera, dual lens camera in iPhone 7 Plus, 7MP FaceTime camera, new touch force touch home button, LTE Advanced with up to 450Mbps, water resistant, stereo speakers and iOS 10. The design is in line with the iPhone 6S, but has been improved. Especially in the Jet Black and Black color option, the iPhone 7 looks like made out of one piece.
Apple might have again some iPhone 7 units in Apple Stores on September 16. There will not be many. The demand for the new iPhone 7 is clearly high.
