    Loving my iPhone 7 in silver and 5.5 in Gold. Apple did a nice job with this upgrade. The camera and speaker upgrades were nice touches.

    Of course the iPhone 7/7 Plus has a headphone jack.

    Actually, it has two different kinds. One is called a Lightning port. The other is a 3.5mm headphone jack at the end of a Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter, which is included in the box with every purchase.

    ...yes, and you can charge it while travelling with external battery ...ooh wait, you need another adapter ( which is not free ). And then you go to your Mac..oooh wait, you need your old headphones, because Mac doesn't have Lightning port. That's very comfortable :)))

    3D touch still has one major issue, you have no visual indication whatsoever where it will work, so you either try-and-error or have to memorize all places that are important for you.

    The iPhone 7s top features: It sets Apple tech back 10 years, looks the same as the last 5 phones, and still can't do as much as a Samsung.
