iPhone 7 vs iPhone 6

Get the big picture

If you’re looking to choose between iPhone 6 and iPhone 7 (or thinking of upgrading) here’s what you need to know.

iPhone 6 still has plenty going for it. It’s a great looking phone with a good screen, and it’s still fast enough to support the latest apps. Plus, it has fingerprint recognition, so you can use Apple Pay for card-free transactions.

That said, iPhone 7 has some serious upgrades to tempt you. Its new, rear-facing 12MP camera captures a wider colour range, and the screens improved so you can instantly see the results.

Worth splashing out for?

Other new feature of iPhone 7 is 3D touch, giving you new ways to quickly access your favourite apps and features. And of course it has a much faster processor and more RAM – ensuring a smoother experience with even the most demanding apps. And one more important feature – it’s water and dust resistant, too.
