India’s biggest smartphone launch of the year is upon us - Apple’s release of the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus.

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be available in Gold, Jet Black, Matte Black, Rose Gold, and Silver colour variants in India. Apart from the new colours and new storage capacities, there are several major differences between the last generation and the current generation iPhone models. The biggest of these are the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack (Apple is bundling a Lightning to 3.5mm Headphone Jack Adapter with each phone however) and IP67 rating for dust, splash, and water resistance. The current generation is lighter and faster than the previous, and comes bundled with Lightning-powered EarPods.
