iPhone 7: What the experts say
With the launch of the iPhone 7 already behind us here in the UK, we’ve decided to take a look at what some of the industry’s leading critics had to say about the new Apple flagship.
As ever, there is tension between the demand for high specifications and the desire for exquisite design.
Much of the debate centres on whether the high-end tweaks to the iPhone 7 justify the difference in price tag compared to the iPhone 6.
There is a sense that the improvements to the iPhone 7 are not only exciting in terms of the current models, but provide a tantalising glimpse of developments that could be in the pipeline.

As for the controversial exclusion of a headphone jack from the iPhone 7, the Telegraph’s James Titcomb decides it isn’t a huge problem.
Senior Technology Reporter at the IBTimes Alistair Charlton sees the headphone jack as a power move by Apple to set the agenda, and seems convinced they will emerge unscathed. The overall impression is, again, one of the iPhone making significant steps forward rather than leaps.
