The iPhone 7 is here and available on major carriers in Australia, or available outright as a purchase from Apple and you can use a SIM only plan with a new nano-sim.
This time around there are five colours: the glossy Jet Black finish, gold, black, space grey and rose gold.
The iPhone 7 features:
The iPhone 7 Plus is the big daddy of the iPhone family. Importantly, the iPhone 7 Plus can run the latest version of Apple's operating system, iOS10, which is the operating system that is shipped with the latest iPhone models.

Let's face it, we all need a little help in selecting the right iPhone model and picking the best plan for our needs.
We've created this super guide to help you get everything that you need to know upfront before you make a decision. A lot goes into making a rewarding choice, especially with an iPhone on a 24 month contract. We'll be doing our best to keep you up to date with all the key decision-making factors.
We've looked at the iPhone 7 & 7 Plus in detail. The most important new features are water resistance, the new touch-sensitive Home button and big changes to the camera. There are now stereo speakers on the top and bottom of the phone, which is great for when you watch video in bed, and the new iPhone 7 Plus comes with two camera lenses, one for regular shots, and one for when you need to zoom in.
If you've got an older iPhone or iPad you might be able to upgrade to the latest and greatest operating system for the iPhone, iOS10. There are updates to the news and Notes apps, public transport for Maps (in some countries), multitasking for iPads, and some seriously big improvements to Siri.
Switching from an old iPhone to a new iPhone is a stupendously simple task thanks to Apple's iCloud software. In fact, most of the data you will want to transfer to your new handset is probably already backed up in the cloud. We've put a guide to getting the most out of iCloud.
If you're been using an Android phone for the last couple of years, but are keen to try out the new iPhone, then you'll probably looking to get all of your contacts from one phone to the other. Because these phone run on different operating systems, transferring some of your content over can be tricky. We've got all the information you need in this handy guide.

Check out the review if you are thinking of getting the iPhone 6s instead of the newer iPhone 7 or 7 Plus. Please note that we reviewed the iPhone 6s when it launched and this was running an older version of the iOS operating system.
