The iPhone 7 features a new A10 Fusion 64-bit processor with four-cores that integrates two high-efficient cores. This translates to using less battery power during use. It also has better graphics performance while using less power than previous iPhones.
The iPhone 7 runs up to two times faster than the iPhone 6 which uses the A9 Processor.
The iPhone 7 now gives you up to 256 GB of storage. Other options are 32 GB and 128 GB. For the jet black iPhone you only get a choice of either the 128 GB or the 256 GB storage choices.
The higher storage capacity is great for anyone who doesn't want to always depend on cloud storage and instead store backups locally as well as install more apps from the Apple Store.
The iPhone 7 comes with two rear-facing cameras using DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex Camera) technology which translates to better image quality than previous iPhone models.
The 12MP rear camera in the iPhone 7 is significantly better than the 8MP rear camera in the iPhone 6 Plus. It features a new flash, an f1.8 lens with Optical Image Stabilization for better autofocusing, better color-correction and better exposure.
The Front camera is 7MP and is significantly better compared to the 1.2MP on the iPhone6 Plus.

Apple stated that the iPhone 7 comes with the "best battery life" ever seen in an iPhone.
For the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus Apple replaced the physical home button at the bottom of the phone with the all new Taptic Engine touchpad which works like a MacBook trackpad. It allows you to choose one of three touch or force settings that make it feel like a harder or stronger click for the home button.
This Taptic Engine touchpad adds a new user experience while working with various applications on the phones that support haptic vibrations.
