The cost of spare parts original iPhone, released in 2007, was $227. For comparison, the cost of 32-Gigabyte model of the iPhone 7 is $220. However, this amount does not include costs for research, development and writing of software – only components and the Assembly.
2. Auto brightness
According to Apple, the iPhone 7’s display is 25% brighter than its predecessor. This is true, but there’s a catch. In order to achieve this level of brightness, you must have enabled the auto brightness, that is, in manual mode even at the maximum level the display is brighter than the iPhone 6s.

Package iPhone 7 and 7 Plus includes an adapter with a Lightning to 3.5 mm. it is Worth noting that it works not only with headphones but also with any other accessories that connect through this port. That is, the adapter performs the same tasks as regular mini-jack.
7. Not quite sapphire
A disappointment for many users was the fact that the camera module and the Home button is covered with not a pure sapphire. Perhaps this is due to difficulty of production, however, it should be borne in mind that the camera and the Home button is not as resistant to scratches as in the case of “real” sapphire crystals.
8. “Black onyx” is complicated to manufacture
The most popular model among users was the iPhone 7 in the color “black onyx”. Now it is almost impossible to find in stores, many customers will receive the smartphone on pre-order in November. The reason of difficulty in manufacturing. Many manufacturers can make such a device, but Apple standards it won’t be.
