iPhone 7 and 7 Plus review: Apple (mostly) plays it safe

Apple broke with its tradition by keeping the 6/6s design for another year, opting instead to improve fundamental parts of the user experience. The iPhone 7 has a better battery than before, a more color-rich screen, a vastly improved camera and plenty of horsepower thanks to its new A10 Fusion chipset. If you're looking for newfangled features (or a headphone jack, for that matter), you'll have to search elsewhere. While it's not thrilling enough to warrant an immediate upgrade from last year's 6s, the iPhone 7 is nonetheless an excellent smartphone.

Pros
  • Top-tier performance
  • Great 12-megapixel camera
  • Improved battery
  • It's water-resistant!
Cons
  • No headphone jack
  • Same design, three years running
  • New home button takes getting used to
