Apple, as usual, has revealed the absolute minimum of information about the components of the new iPhone. Independent research over time will shed light on the details, but in such a short time since the devices appeared on the market, many questions have not yet been answered.
A key innovation in the iPhone 7 is a system-on-a-chip called the Apple A10 Fusion. Since the iPhone first used the Apple-designed SoC (A4), the company hasn’t seen fit to equip its chips with more than two ARM cores. The goal of the creators of the A-series SoC was and remains the most efficient extraction of parallelism from a single instruction stream. In all generations of iPhones that have changed over the years, this approach has proven its effectiveness, allowing Apple processors to compete at least on equal terms with mobile SoCs with four or more cores (both licensed from ARM design and based on the original IP), in resource-intensive tasks typical of a smartphone, such as web surfing and 3D games.
However, if from the point of view of speed, four to eight-core CPUs are not the only one and, the conclusion suggests itself, is not the most successful solution, competing with Apple SoC chips of the highest category have one advantage that the engineers of the Californian company were in no hurry to adopt. Back in 2011, ARM proposed the Big.LITTLE architecture, which implies the placement of two clusters of cores on a chip. high-performance and energy-efficient. The load is distributed in one way or another in accordance with the purpose of the clusters, which ultimately allows you to increase performance per watt of power consumed by the SoC.
In its narrower sense, Big.LITTLE refers to select combinations of cores developed by ARM, but this principle is used equally well in products such as Samsung Exynos 8 Octa 8890 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, equipped with cores of the original design. The Cupertino-based company also went down the beaten track with the Apple A10 Fusion.
Here are a few facts that are currently known about the heterogeneous architecture of the Apple A10 Fusion. The SoC includes two dual-core clusters and a hardware controller that migrates tasks between the latter. The word “migration” with a high probability means that high-performance and energy-efficient clusters never work at the same time, and when one of the clusters is disconnected, it transfers data to the second through a shared L2 cache.
Snapshot of Apple A10 Fusion chip (ChipWorks)
The available snapshot from ChipWorks localized a high-performance ARM core cluster covering an area of 16 mm 2. compared to 13 mm 2 in the Apple A9. The increase in area against the background of a general increase in the density of the microcircuit (which will be discussed below) can be interpreted so that the two smaller cores are located in any of the other probable positions, and the main cluster has been enlarged. However, another hypothesis seems to be more consistent: the energy-efficient and high-performance clusters are integrated with each other. The latter method of organization may have something to do with such characteristics of the chip as the efficient use of the transistor budget and the way the load is migrated between clusters. And by the way, the word Fusion in the name of the SoC may indicate exactly this.
It remains an open question if there are any differences in the pipeline of the main ARM cores compared to the Twister architecture used in A9. Based on the performance claimed (and assuming the two A10 Fusion clusters are actually not running at the same time), the answer to this question is yes. The high-performance A10 Fusion cluster runs at 27% faster than the CPU in the Apple A9 (2.34 vs 1.85 GHz), but should be 40% faster.
Even less is known about the GPU in the A10 Fusion. Apple says it’s a six-core GPU. So if the developer continues to license IP from Imagination Technologies, we are dealing with either the overclocked PowerVR GT7600 that was used in the Apple A9, or the representative of the new PowerVR Series7XT presented by Imagination earlier this year. The declared GPU performance exceeds that of the Apple A9 by 50%.
The Apple A10 Fusion is manufactured at TSMC facilities using 16nm FinFET technology and has an area of 125 mm2, which is 20.5 mm2 larger than the area of A9. also manufactured by TSMC. If we rely on an independent estimate of the number of transistors in both SoCs (more than 2 billion and 3.3 billion, respectively), then the A10 Fusion achieved a significantly higher component density compared to Apple’s first experience with 16 nm FinFET process technology.
X-ray of the Apple A10 Fusion chip (ChipWorks)
So far, there is no evidence that Apple has hired a second contractor for the SoC production. Samsung. in parallel with TSMC, as happened with the Apple A9. Apparently, the exclusive position of TSMC has brought a new way of packaging microcircuits. InFO-WLP (Integrated Fan-Out Wafer-Level Packaging). The essence of the technology is that the chip is mounted directly on the printed circuit board without an organic substrate. For this, on the crystal area, areas are reserved that are not occupied by transistor logic, but only by metal conductors, which are terminated with solder balls on the surface. The dedicated area allows the balls to be large enough to be soldered onto the board. In contrast, a typical packaging method involves two layers of beads: small beads that connect the chip to the organic base, and large beads on the bottom surface of the substrate.
Купил НОВЫЙ Sealed box iPhone 7 в 2020 году за 150. В чём подвох?!
The use of InFO-WLP provides the chip with several advantages: reduced case height, improved cooling, and finally, shorter conductors contribute to higher clock speeds.
In the iPhone 7, the SoC is housed in a single package under the Samsung K3RG1G10CM-YGCH RAM assembly. Chips with a total capacity of 2 GB are placed in one plane, which also made the case a little thinner. By the way, the iPhone 7 Plus, unlike the standard-sized model, has 3 GB of RAM.
For comparison with the iPhone 7 benchmark results, we collected data from previous models, starting with the iPhone 5. The Android universe is represented by products of Apple’s main competitor among high-end smartphones, based on Samsung Exynos 8890 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chips.
Test results: camera
The optical image stabilization and f / 1.8 aperture in the iPhone 7 came in handy. The camera allows you to shoot in low light with ISO around 100 and shutter speeds as long as ¼ s, which has a beneficial effect on the amount of noise in the frame. The appropriate color temperature in both natural and artificial light is not perfectly determined, but quite accurately.
In general, the design of the iPhone 7 does not differ from its two predecessors, it has the same dimensions as the iPhone 6s and almost the same weight. However, the principles of aesthetics inherent in the iPhone 6, the creators of the “seven” brought to perfection. The first thing that catches your eye is the plastic strips separating the Wi-Fi and cellular antenna zones, shifted to the edges of the case. In two new iPhone 7 color options (Black and Onyx Black), they visually blend with the metal cover. so well that white and gray stripes in other colors already look like a flaw.
In addition, the metal surfaces in both shades of black are treated differently than in the silver, gold and pink iPhone. “Black” was smoother to the touch, and “Black Onyx” was polished to a mirror finish (which, of course, makes it vulnerable to scratches and fingerprints). In general, since plastic spacers run along the edges of the case and are convex, it is important that they are polished in production after being installed (or, most likely, pouring and then solidifying in the grooves of the case) together with the metal surface, ensuring the perfect shape of the curves and accurate joining materials.
Other design flaws of the previous two generations have been eliminated in the iPhone 7. The lens of the main camera has become not only larger (due to the increased aperture), but also a little longer (additional lens). As a consequence, it still rises above the back cover, but instead of a separate ring, it is surrounded by a neat raised surface. The peephole is shifted to the corner formed by the plastic spacer, which looks much more harmonious compared to the iPhone 6 / 6s lens sandwiched between the spacers in a seemingly random position.
By the way, Apple claims that both the lens of the main camera and the sensor of the “home” button are covered with sapphire (that is, corundum) glass. However, according to some evidence on the Internet, both glasses are not as scratch resistant as sapphire should be. unlike the glasses in the iPhone 6s. Apple has not yet responded to these messages.
There is no more inappropriate shiny pits between the volume buttons. All buttons feel a little stiffer than the iPhone 6 / 6s and have a duller sound. The Lightning port bezel on black models and the screw heads around it are also painted black. Speaker holes on the bottom edge are absolutely symmetrical due to the absence of a mini-jack.
In the triumph of minimalism, which is the iPhone 7, you can only find fault with the thinnest plastic frame between the glass of the screen and the metal of the case, without which Apple could well do, as is done in the Apple Watch. However, it is possible that the frame has a functional purpose: plastic can distribute the impact energy during a fall, which would be especially dangerous in the case of direct contact between metal and glass of a large area.
The home button below the screen is no longer a physical button. A pressure sensitive Force Touch sensor is located under the sapphire crystal disc, and the pressure sensation is triggered by an electromagnetic hammer of the Taptic Engine. To be honest, the “emulation” of the physical button in the iPhone 7 is not as reliable as in the Mac touchpads with Force Touch (absolutely indistinguishable from the mechanical ones in terms of sensations). However, the effect is pleasant (especially with the maximum force of impact, which is adjustable) and at first causes an addiction similar to that of seeds or bubble wrap.
Button presses are recorded flawlessly and as fast as human fingers can. In addition, the sensor reacts only to fingers or objects close in electrical properties and area.
iPhone 7 Unboxing: Whats in the Box?
Force Touch on the home button plays the same role as 3D Touch on the screen. Light pressure unlocks the phone or opens the desktop, stronger pressure calls Siri. However, it would be better if the deep press was accompanied by a second “click”. now this is not the case.
In any case, replacing the physical key with a pressure sensor means there is one less mechanical component to wear in the smartphone. In addition, the fixed “home” button could be needed for another achievement of the iPhone 7. protection against ingress of dust and moisture IP67 standard. The body can withstand immersion in water to a depth of 1 m for 30 minutes.
Test results: battery life
With continuous H.264 video playback, we finally see a pair of energy-efficient Apple A10 Fusion cores in action. Supported by an increased battery, the new SoC extends the battery life by 66% over the iPhone 6s.
Devices with less bright screens (iPhone 5 / 5s / SE) or a larger battery (Samsung Galaxy Note 7) still lead this test, which, however, presents a rather specific use case that does not reflect the true autonomy of the tested devices under typical conditions. mixed load.
Apple iPhone 7 review: the best iPhone is the new iPhone
Starting with the iPhone 3G, Apple has followed a two-year update cycle for its most popular product. In the first phase, the company introduces a fresh design and the most important functional innovations, among which in the past years was a larger screen, additional communication options, etc. The launch of the next model, with the suffix “s”, is focused on honing the existing functions. However, Apple usually tends to add something new in the intermediate phase (like the Touch ID or 3D Touch features that appeared in the iPhone 5s and 6s). And of course, every year iPhone comes with a new system-on-a-chip and an improved main camera.
The iPhone 7 has departed from this rule to some extent. This time around, the case design clearly follows the direction of the iPhone 6 (while iPhones 4, 5 and 6 were radically different from previous iterations). Hardware features, in turn, have changed more quantitatively than qualitatively (which, however, cannot be said about the iPhone 7 Plus with its dual camera). What Apple has done in the year since the release of the iPhone 6s is best seen as a deep and comprehensive revision of a familiar device. However, in this case, it is quite appropriate to recall the old thesis about the transition from quantity to quality.

In the iPhone 6s, Apple pioneered the use of a PCI-Express NVMe-based storage device. There is no reason to believe that the iPhone 7 has taken a step back towards the eMMC interface in this regard. The lineup of the smartphone includes three positions with Flash-memory capacity of 32, 128 and 256 GB. Thus, the base iPhone models with 16GB of storage are finally a thing of the past, and the capacity of all three models has been doubled.
When it comes to wireless communications, the iPhone 7 takes a step further with its Category 10 LTE-Advanced modem, which provides 450 Mbps and 100 Mbps transmit and receive bandwidth, respectively. The CDMA versions of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus (A1660 and A1661) are equipped with a Qualcomm MDM9645M baseband chip, which actually supports LTE-A Category 12 600/150 Mbps, but is limited to Cat. 10 to match the capabilities of the modem of the other two models. Intel PMB9943 (A1778, A1784).
The latter are deprived of CDMA support, and they were released on the Russian market. LTE Bands 7, 20 and 38, which are relevant for Russian networks, are supported by both modems (minus Band 31, which is used by Tele2’s Skylink network).
The iPhone 7’s Wi-Fi capabilities are unchanged from its predecessor, supporting IEEE 802.11ac in a 2×2 MIMO configuration for up to 866 Mbps throughput.

I switched to the “seven” from an old iPhone 6, and for me the performance gains and the difference in the speed of work looked noticeable. Desktops scrolled smoother, applications launched faster, and the browser worked faster. However, upon closer examination of the device, one could notice twitchy animations when minimizing applications or switching between them. I saw similar complaints from colleagues from other publications. I believe that all this will be corrected in more recent releases of iOS 10 and the problem here is clearly software, because the hardware part of the iPhone 7 is great.
As for toys and benchmarks, then there are no complaints, after all, all the games in the App Store are just optimized to work as quickly as possible on iPhones.
I would like to talk separately about memory. Recently I was asked to help sell a couple of used 16GB iPhone 6s, and in the Комментарии и мнения владельцев to the ad, people asked how people survived with such a small memory capacity. Personally, this volume was quite enough for me: I rarely take pictures, I do not play heavy games, and my media library fits perfectly into 3-4 GB. In this scenario, 16 GB was more than enough. Nevertheless, I can only praise Apple’s decision to double the memory capacity of all models. Still, video is now filmed in 4k, and live photos weigh decently.
As for the clicking, which is constantly talked about in some articles: if you put your ear close to the case back, you will hear a quiet ticking like a clockwork. If you move the smartphone one or two centimeters away from your ear, you can no longer hear it. In my opinion, the problem is overblown.
- Lightning cable
- EarPods with Lightning
- Adapter Lightning to minijack
- A clip for removing the SIM card
Apple changed the packaging technology in the new iPhones, now, to remove the packaging film from the box, you just need to pull on the special tab. The top cover is now also slightly easier to remove.
Among the innovations, it is worth highlighting EarPods with Lightning and a 3.5 mm adapter. Please note that the adapter wire is very thin, so I still recommend getting separate headphones with Lightning support or using the bundled headphones. I myself do not really like EarPods, because while wearing them, I do not leave the (deceptive) feeling that the headphones are about to fall out of my ears. Plus, they play “outside”, so if someone with such headphones listens to music at high volume, then you can find out everything about the musical preferences of a neighbor.
The last change has to do with the headphone box. The plastic case was changed to paper packaging, it looks simpler, and it is harder to open it. However, for me, it would be better if the box is like this, but there will be an adapter in the kit, rather than a plastic case, but without an adapter.
The novelty was in my hands for just a few days, but even this use was enough to understand that the iPhone 7 does not work much longer than previous generations. Accordingly, you can count on about three to four hours of the screen on.
Apple decided to abandon the 3.5 mm headphone jack, while at the presentation they did not hesitate to use the phrase “we had the courage to do it”. We had a separate article from Eldar Murtazin, in which he talks in detail about the reasons for such a step.
This is not the first time that the company has been rebuilding the industry for itself, let us recall at least the various standards of SIM cards that all manufacturers eventually came to, or a laptop with a single port. this idea was also repeated by other companies. So, I’m sure that the refusal from 3.5 mm will be repeated by other vendors in their flagships. Someone will immediately remember that Apple was not the first in its decision, but it does not matter. What matters is how widespread this approach will become once it is applied to the iPhone.
Another change is the move to a tactile Home touch button. The same Force Touch technology is used as in the company’s new MacBooks, however, some reviewers wrote that the implementation in the iPhone is still worse.
For my part, I can note that the sensations from pressing are now different, but I cannot say that it has become worse. it has become different. Now, when you “press” the button, it feels as if not only the button is being pressed, but the entire bottom panel as well. At the same time, depending on the choice of intensity, these sensations change greatly, the most natural to me seems to be the average level of recoil.
The mechanism for removing the SIM card tray has been slightly changed. Now, when you insert a paperclip, it feels as if it does not go further, and the tray itself is pulled out a little harder. This is due to the appearance of moisture resistance, as I understand it, a special plug is used inside to prevent water from entering. By the way, when you connect the Lightning cable, you also feel that it is harder to fit in.
The device has got stereo speakers, however, they are implemented in a slightly unusual way. The right speaker is in place, and the left speaker is also spoken. In terms of volume and volume, the sound has improved, but this is still not the level of portable speakers, keep in mind.
The release of the new iPhone always comes with a lot of excitement. He was just introduced, and everyone has already begun to discuss new colors, the rejection of the minijack and other innovations. Experts immediately appear saying that the device is not worth its money, fans claiming that they are ready to upgrade right now, and many other people.
Smartphone Review Apple iPhone 7
Appearance, body materials
In the new iPhones, the plastic strips for the antennas were changed, they were hidden at the ends, thanks to which the appearance of the models became more neat.
Two new colors are now available: matt black and glossy Jet Black. The latter is sold only in 128 and 256 GB versions. I had a matte version on my test, it looks great: strict, practical, while the antenna strips are practically invisible.
An important innovation that, for some reason, few people remember. The new iPhones slide much less in the hand, which is very cool, because it was simply scary to wear sixes without covers. The tactile sensations have also changed, if the previous versions were very smooth and because of this they just slipped out, then the new generation has become more rough and velvety. The material is perceived differently, moreover, it is more practical.
The camera peephole has slightly changed, now it looks neater and does not cling to pants s if you carry your iPhone without a case.
The device has become waterproof according to the IP67 standard. That is, you can drop it into water without any consequences. However, here I agree with Sergey Kuzmin, if the manufacturer guarantees moisture resistance, this does not mean that you need to swim with your phone every day, dip it in cola, splash in a glass, etc.
Headphones. how to use them now?
The bold decision to get rid of the connector was perceived in different ways by people. Some people think that this is just such a new marketing ploy to draw attention to other accessories that the company makes. The new update will be convenient for those who like to listen to music on the go and on the go, because the wireless headphones that are not included in the package are quite modern and comfortable to use.
These headphones look nice, cool and practical. But, the downside is that buying new ones, in case of losing one of them, will cost a pretty tidy sum. So, time will tell if such a change will be accepted by the consumer, or not practical for most people. Those who could not part with the standard 3.5 mm jack will be able to use the special adapter included in the kit.
What’s in the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus package
recently, Apple introduced a novelty of smartphones, and very much surprised many fans of their products. The new line of smartphones iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus has become a real sensation in recent days. The update, which sparked a lot of discussion on social media, still worries many today. The point is not in the new practical and beautiful design of smartphones, but in the fact that Apple completely got rid of the jack for standard headphones. According to rumors, the iPhone 7 package includes a special adapter for those who cannot part with their beloved classics.
Was this change so unexpected? Information leaks from Chinese factories, where the American novelty is assembled today, happened before. And so, at the end of September this year, we received official confirmation from Apple. the new line of phones has completely new characteristics. It seems that a well-known company has decided to move to new and modern technologies right now.
New iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. what’s in the box?
iPhone 7 comes standard, but there are also some interesting new features:
- Phone itself, iPhone 7,
- Standard charger with USB port,
- Lightning cable included,
- Special headset with cable connector,
- Lightning to standard mini-jack adapter.
As you can see, everything in the box remains the same, only in addition we received a Lightning cable. So those who cannot leave the standard headphones will be able to connect to a smartphone through this special adapter.
Other updates to the smartphone line
The 7, the favorite of many, has finally received the long-awaited camera update. Now it is doubled and equipped with an optical zoom. So neither moisture, nor rain, nor any other liquid, are no longer scary. The new camera will be very practical for those who like to shoot videos or love to take photos, as the quality of the pictures has become much higher.
In addition, the manufacturer has pampered with two new options for the black color of the phones. Now, in addition to the standard pink, gray and gold, there are black glossy and matte black colors. Of course, black lovers will appreciate this new product. But be careful, the black onyx model will keep all your fingerprints, and not only yours, on the case. In the same way as the front panel of a smartphone. Therefore, the matte version of the new phone remains more practical.
In any case, the new line of smartphones iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus has received a lot of attention, which seems to be what the manufacturers were hoping for. She created a real sensation around herself and her updates, so we can only wait for what else Apple will delight us in the future. In the meantime, we are evaluating new phones, testing new adapters and rejoicing in the long-awaited updates.
IPhone 7 Package Contents
The purchase is already in hand. We open the coveted box, and there:
- Lightning cable;
- EarPods with Lightning support;
- Lightning to mini-jack adapter;
- A clip for removing the SIM card;
By the way, the company also revised the way of packaging its products and made it much easier. Feel the thrill? Then let’s move on.
What is included in the iPhone 7 package when buying in Russia
So, you were waiting for him with bated breath. Meet, now iPhone 7 in Russia. Surprisingly, this particular smartphone model became the exception to the rule. Apple typically follows a traditional two-year product update cycle. In the first phase, we see changes in design and hardware functions, in the second (with the “S” index). their improvement. But not at this time. The new iPhone 7 can be safely called a continuation of the six. The design has practically not changed, the quality of the functions has also changed, their quantity has changed. In short, the seven is a deep and comprehensive transformation of the acclaimed six.
What has the seven prepared for us? It’s time to “open” the brainchild of Apple and find out what configuration awaits us.
And high productivity is based on
Unlike the six, the iPhone 7 is much faster and faster. The gadget received a quad-core processor with a frequency of 2.34 GHz for each core and 2 GB of LPDDR4 SDRAM RAM. The chipset is powered by the intuitive Apple A10 operating system.
Simply put, now your leisure time will become even more pleasant. Any content you need, you will receive quickly and efficiently. Touch and enjoy.
The Apple Company once again decided to rebuild the industry “for itself”. Up to this day, she has done well. Remember at least the story with SIM cards or about a laptop with one slot.
With the release of the iPhone 7, a statement was made to end the use of the 3.5mm headphone jack. How many more manufacturers will pick up this idea is anyone’s guess. And the seventh model never ceases to amaze.
Another innovative feature was the introduction of a touch-sensitive Home button with a tactile feedback into the phone. For its implementation, the Force Touch technology was used, which the company applied in the new MacBooks. The experiment was a success, users are delighted. Now let’s add tar.
It is worth noting some of the nuances associated with removing the SIM card and connecting the connectors. You may feel uncomfortable while performing an action. This is due to the fact that a plug is installed in the new generation of apple communication devices, which protects against moisture ingress.
Shows, speaks, removes. What else is interesting about Apple 7 iPhone
Now pay attention to the main advantage of 7 “apple”. a colorful screen. And all thanks to the fact that the device supports the DCI-P3 standard, which is used by the US film industry. DCI-P3 provides deeper color solutions and increases visible Spectra color coverage by 25%.
Despite the fact that the screen resolution remained the same as in the previous model (4.7 inches, 1334 × 750 pixels), the picture became brighter, richer and more juicy. But it’s better to see it with your own eyes once. The phone’s photo and video capabilities have also been improved across the board. The iPhone 7 features a 12MP DCI-P3 camera with optical image stabilization. Although the resolution of the camera has not been increased, the new sensor from Sony has increased the autofocus speed by 60%, and has reduced power consumption by 30%.
over, the unit received the latest 6-lens optical design with an aperture of f / 1.8 and an improved flash from four Tru Tone LEDs (50% brightness). The seventh model has a 7 MP front camera. It can be used to shoot videos in 1080p.
The upper speaker of the seventh generation apple device has turned into a full-fledged loudspeaker and, in tandem with the lower one, creates a stereo mode. It no longer has a mini-jack connector. And all because Apple offers to use the wireless interface as the main source for connecting audio equipment.
Removing the extra connector from the phone, the developers put a battery in it, the capacity of which is increased by 14%. All that remains is to enjoy the depth and volume of sound and, of course, high performance.
At a glance, it’s hard to tell the iPhone 7 apart from the previous version. In appearance, this means of communication is no different from its predecessor. Even in weight, they are practically the same. But looking closely, we can safely say that the designers of the “apple” have tried their best. The style and aesthetic canons of the six are honed to perfection in the new device.
Let’s take the same plastic strips designed to separate the zones of Wi-Fi and mobile antennas. In the seventh series, they are moved to the edges and in the colors (black and “black onyx”) are perfectly combined with the metal case.
The lens, which has become larger due to the increased aperture, is surrounded by a smooth surface rise instead of the usual ring. The peephole is located in the corner, without getting out of the general composition. The back of the gadget is perfect. Now pay attention to the volume buttons. There is no longer a shiny hole between them. Keys are softer, and the sound that is made when they are pressed is more dull.
In the case of the seven, the only thing you can find fault with is the thinnest plastic frame between glass and metal. It would seem that Apple products can do without it. But the iPhone is such a sophisticated multimedia center that every detail is important. And the plastic frame is no exception. After all, it distributes the impact energy when falling. Without her, nowhere.
