What is the difference between iPhone 6s and iPhone 7?

It happened – Apple introduced the much-anticipated new generation of its smartphones, namely, presented the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Of course, users immediately began to wonder – what is the difference between 7 iPhone and iPhone 6s? There are many differences.

Just say that in this review we only consider iPhone 7 and 6s, a comparison of 7 and 7 Plus you can see here.

Dimensions, appearance

Dimensions remained unchanged, the width, height and thickness are as follows: 67.1 × 138.3 × 7.1 mm. What does it mean? This means that if you take one smartphone, then another, one by one, you will not notice the difference. Is that 6s 5 grams heavier (143 grams versus 138 grams), but can you feel it? Hardly.

Whether it is design, there are changes and quite important ones. First of all, the eye clings to the camera eye – now it is flush with the surface of the case and looks much better than the ring that frames the camera eye in 6s.

The second important difference is that the antenna strips for receiving a signal now pass along the upper and lower frame of the case, they look quite stylish.

In a word, with regard to design, the iPhone 7 has become much prettier. Front, however, the difference is minimal.

Another important difference is the color scheme. The following shades are available for iPhone 6s: silver, gold, dark gray, pink. There are more colors for iPhone: silver, gold, dark gray (almost black), pink and Black Onyx (black with a gloss).

Display

The displays are almost the same. They have a diagonal of 4.7 inches, a resolution of 750×1334 pixels. The iPhone 7 claims to be a quarter brighter and also has a wider range of colors.

Cameras

Both devices have rear 12-megapixel iSight cameras, but the camera’s “seven” capabilities are much better: it has a six-lens lens with an aperture of F / 1.8, a larger aperture range allows you to absorb more light, which positively affects shooting at dusk or dark, there is a new flash, as well as a new processor for processing photos.

But the most interesting thing is that the camera in 6s, if worse, is not much, and therefore remains one of the best cameras on the market.

Model 7 Plus received a dual rear camera.

Iron

The iPhone 7 uses the latest processor, the Apple A10 Fusion 4-core processor, which is said to nearly double the performance compared to the Apple A9 processor, which is installed in 6s. But let’s not forget that iPhone has never had a problem with performance.

The amount of RAM is the same – 2 GB, but in version 7 Plus Apple uses immediately 3 GB of RAM.

The capacity of the main memory has changed. For 6s, it is 16 GB, 32 GB, 64 GB or 128 GB. For iPhone 7, the numbers are different: 32 GB, 128 GB or 256 GB.

Battery

The capacity of the latter in the new model has increased, but quite a bit – 1960 mAh versus 1715 mAh. It is alleged that the iPhone 7 in a similar mode should work for several hours longer.

Other differences

Here’s what else the iPhone 7 got (or lost):

  • Protection against splashes and dust according to the IP67 standard. Anyway, we strongly do not recommend checking protection by dipping your smartphone in water..
  • Stereo speakers. Yes, now the top speaker can make a sound.
  • Woe for some users – iPhone 7 has lost a 3.5 mm headphone jack! However, you can listen to them through the adapter.
  • HOME key still became touch.
