Apple Event: iPhone 7 Plus Announced

Apple have officially revealed the iPhone 7 Plus.

Called “The best iPhone ever” by company CEO Tim Cook, the 5.5-inch handset’s big new feature is the dual-lens camera on the back, designed to enhance image quality by taking two individual exposures, before merging them to produce a better picture. The two individual 12-megapixels cameras have their own purposes; one deals with wide angle shots, with the other taking care of close-up photos.

Like the iPhone 7, the Plus is also dust and water resistant, and the 3.5mm headphone jack has been controversially removed in favour of a Lightning connection. Included in the box with the handset is a pair of EarPods as well as a Lightning to 3.5mm Headphone Jack Adaptor.

Now, if you would like to get your hands on one of these, you better get saving; the standard 32GB version clocks in at £719, with the 128GB model costing £819 and the top-level 256GB offering costing an eye-watering and quite simply astronomical £919.

Pre-orders start from this coming Friday, with the handset to be shipped on September 16.
