On the surface, it doesn’t feel like there’s that much new stuff going on with the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. But when you look inside, nothing could be farther from the truth. Apple hasn’t just upgraded the hardware, they’ve introduced new things – an entire new camera module, a much powerful Taptic engine for OS-wide system haptics and more. Then there’s all the new stuff in iOS 10.
If you just got a new iPhone 7, you should know that this thing in your hand is far more capable than the previous iPhone. And we’ll help you discover how, in the section below.
The new Home button isn’t actually a button. Similar to the Force Touch trackpad on the new Macs, the new Home “button” is capacitive. It doesn’t move itself, you get feedback on the operation thanks to the Taptic engine just behind the Home button.
This means that you can customize how “hard” the press/feedback feels like. There are 3 settings – basically low, medium and high. You would be asked about it during setup. But you can go into “Settings” -> “General” -> “Home” to change them anytime.
If your iPhone was acting weirdly, the first thing you’d do is hard reset. Just press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home button until the iPhone reboots. But because the Home button isn’t a real button now, the key combination for this action has changed. You now need to press and hold “Sleep/Wake” and “Volume Down” buttons.
If you’re running iOS 10.1 and up on your iPhone 7 Plus, you should now see a new option for the Portrait mode. You can switch to it by swiping on the camera view, the same way you switch to Pano mode.
When you click a Portrait shot, iOS saves a normal version of the photo, in case you don’t like the Portrait mode photo. But this means you’re using up double space. If you’re pretty confident about Portrait mode’s prowess, you can go into “Settings” -> “Photo & Camera” and disable “Keep Normal Photo” from under the Portrait Mode section.
