iPhone 7 Plus: 4 Years Later!

by birtanpublished on January 4, 2021

Welcome back everyone i'm pretty sure everyone knows by now that the iphone 7 plus was a phone that i think was probably loved more than that but it did have a troubled past and and what a majority of people don't even know is that this phone just hit four years old actually like a couple months ago but we've been bombarded with so much new technology that we didn't even get a chance to talk about these older phones that i love talking about so the iphone 7 plus came out in 2016 and i've already made three videos full reviews of it this

Year the early review mid review and just the late review but now i want to kind of just celebrate the history of this device and see how it held up then back i guess even the earlier this year and even now where it stands as of right now as a you know four-year-old iphone and potentially the oldest iphone that could be supported for the next version of ios but when this thing first came out back in 2016 i mean this was a phone that had a really weird rollout because apple

You know this was the first iphone to remove the headphone jack and at that time i think people hated it and even me i used an iphone 6 plus at the time and i could not even imagine using a phone without a headphone jack and i think that was this phone's biggest problem at the time was just the headphone jack issue but then a couple years later you know what i mean i think it was like 2017 at some point i ended up picking up the iphone 6s plus and i had a great time with it

And i thought the same thing i could never use a phone that doesn't have a headphone jack whereas on the 7 plus it was doing really decent numbers there were some issues early on but they ended up getting fixed for the most part and the airpods started taking off too and that's something that people don't realize with the success of the seven plus or more so i guess the lack of headphone jack for those phones people ended up picking up those airpods and now airpods are like a staple in

Just the culture overall when it comes down to even beyond technology just in just the culture of everyone airpods are just everywhere which is awesome and you know we can thank some of that success to the rollout of the seven plus and then eventually i picked up the iphone 7 plus i think er late 2017 or early 2018 you can watch back my videos then i started talking about it but i had a really good time with that 7 plus and i think it was probably one of my best iphones i've ever owned i eventually

Switched over to an iphone 10 and even then i had a hard time you know giving up my iphone 7 plus because i missed that home button you know which was so weird i never thought i would say that but i just felt like the iphone 10 was overpriced at that time in that 7 plus getting those software updates at the time and kind of you know comparing it to the iphone 10 at the time it just felt like the 7 plus was a no-brainer in some cases and this was also the first time we saw a dual camera setup on those iphones too

And now every phone has like a dual camera setup except the iphone se 2 but these phones you know the seven plus and seven included but these phones but the seven plus more so just held up so well throughout the test of time and eventually with the rollout of ios 13 and ios 14 i stopped using the 7 plus i think around when the iphone 10 was about a year old you know when that one eventually got you know ios 12 or i was i think around the ios 12 beta time that's when i switched over to the iphone 10 i could be totally wrong

But the iphone 7 plus was the last home button iphone that i owned in terms of a daily phone that i used and i had a great time with it a great experience and even now when i look at it and i just compared it to the 12 pro max and all these other phones i'm still pleasantly surprised by how well the iphone 7 plus is holding up and this is going to be another case where i think when ios is done getting supportive for these phones so when ios 15 comes out and then we eventually get you know the next

Versions of ios and stuff and the iphone 7 plus stops getting supported i'm going to think to myself that this is going to be another set of phones that could have probably handled the next version of ios the iphone 6s and 6s plus are kind of in that you know time frame as well but because the rumors and everything that are coming out the iphone 7 plus is said to actually get ios 15 so if that's true this four year mark could potentially be like a five or six year mark depending on when

The security updates are done for the seven plus so this phone could still be relevant even two years later maybe at least like a year but maybe even two years later than now which would be insane the time frame of this phone is awesome this phone's performance is still pretty good the battery size is actually pretty decent and it's bigger than the iphone 12 pro's battery size which is insane to me this phone that you know came out in 2016

Still has a bigger size battery at its native full 100 charge than the brand new thousand dollar phone from apple so even just in terms of that when you look at the evolution that apple did four years ago and now yes a lot of other things have changed and i'd rather have a 12 pro than even three iphone 7 pluses but that's still a really big deal do you know that the 7 plus had that big of a bet size battery at that time than the iphone 12 pro which is very weird and when you look at the

Phone and you look at the edges and you just feel how this phone felt and you look specifically at that jet black version of the iphone 7 plus that was my favorite version of any iphone that ever came out that was the cleanest version of phone that ever came out i think from apple and i really hope they make another phone like that but in terms of the iphone 7 plus and how it holds up a whole four years later what i can tell you is this phone brought a lot to the table it brought the dual camera setup

The removal of the headphone jack which i think is kind of funny to even mention but it brought a lot of firsts you know it brought that dual camera setup which i really did like and that telephoto lens has been circulated over and over and over again eventually switched over to that ultrawide sensor that's now like on the base models of all iphones but i think when you look at this phone and even we look back you know four or five years from now we'll probably say the same thing that the seven plus really showed a shift

Just beyond iphones because the airpod release came out the same time the dual camera setup came and the removal of the headphone jack came and for better or for worse it did end up changing apple and ended up making them a lot of money in the long run so that really pretty much covers it up for the most part if you guys have any other questions or anything let me know in the comment section below hit the like button that means so much but definitely hit that subscribe button every single subscriber that we get
