The iPhone 7 plus includes new backside dual camera lens for both wide angle and telephoto (2X) use. They can be used together for creating effects and to improve the resolution of digital zooming. They have a new image signal processor that uses machine learning to process pictures, and take the best shots with tone mapping, noise reduction, and a wide color gamut. The images are said to be 25% brighter than before. The Front side camera on both models is now 7 Mpixel. The home button has new additional functionality called "taptic" which is Apple's word for a touch button with haptic feedback. It is now pressure sensitive and a program can vibrate the button to provide feedback to the user. These phones also have immersive stereo speakers built in. They will release with iOS 10 preloaded. They are also water resistant. See also Samsung vs LG vs Apple
