I gotta level with you folks: it's not easy for me to get excited for new iPhones. The MacBook line still gets me drooling; I love the iPad family; and even the Apple Watch holds a special place in my heart. The iPhone, though? It just doesn't resonate with me at all. Maybe I'm too much of a contrarian to embrace a device so widely carried and adored, I don't know.
If you're like me, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus probably won't do much for you. But if you're an Apple lover or an Android transplant looking to dip your toes in the placid waters of the iOS ecosystem, the iPhone 7 has plenty to offer. From IP67 waterproofing to an improved camera to the oddly fascinating taptic Home button, iPhone 7 and 7 Plus bring plenty of new hotness to the table – maybe even enough to overcome the elimination of the beloved headphone jack. I'll dive into that in MrMobile's official iPhone 7 review later this month; for now, enjoy my first-impressions hands-on!
