The Retina LCD display displays colors beautifully on the 4.7-inch screen that is protected by ion-strengthened glass and an oleophobic coating to prevent smudges and fingerprints. The display also has the 3D Touch feature that allows users to switch between apps, respond to calls and messages, manage notifications and utilities, and more. The home button on the phone is now a solid button that doesn t click. Apple has given the phone what it calls a Taptic Engine, which has other uses on the phone, to relay haptic feedback. The home button also doubles as a fingerprint sensor
. Speaking of design, both the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus
look a lot like the iPhones 6 and 6 Plus of 2014 but for the water resistance
that lasts for upto 30 minutes. The antenna on the 7 is at the back as opposed to being in the front as in the 6. And of course, there is no headphone jack on the iPhone 7, but thankfully, the phone ships with EarPods with a Lightning connector, in addition to a Lightning-to-audiojack dongle for headphones. The phone has stereo speakers, one at the bottom and other in the earpiece. The back panel is available in matte black, glossy black, silver, gold and rose gold finishes. The device is 7.1 mm thick, and weighs a light 138 grams.
