Apple has announced its flagship iPhone 7 Plus, a major upgrade to the iPhone 6s Plus. Here we round up the features, specs, price and UK release date for the new iPhone 7 Plus & where to buy the iPhone 7 Plus in the UK.

Following Apple's unveiling on 7 September and a week-long pre-order period, the new iPhone 7 Plus has hit the shelves and is available to buy now. If you can find it that is - iPhone 7 Plus units have sold out around the world. The iPhone 7 Plus with dual cameras, new design features and tons of power. Here's everything you need to know about the new iPhone, including iPhone 7 Plus release date, iPhone 7 Plus features, iPhone 7 Plus specs and iPhone 7 Plus price. Plus, find out how to buy the iPhone 7 Plus now.

The iPhone 7 Plus boasts a new-to-iPhone dual lens camera sensor that Apple claims is the best yet in any iPhone, and even the iPhone 7 itself missed out on the feature. The other headline upgrades for the iPhone 7 Plus are its water resistance, stereo speakers and claimed longer battery life.

The two 12Mp cameras combine to boast hi-res optical zoom at 2x, a great improvement for casual and professional iPhone photographers alike. The iPhone 7 Plus’ screen is 1920 x 1080 resolution, so no improvement on last year’s iPhone 6s models.

The iPhone 7 Plus is also water resistant to an IP67 standard. Read on to find out more.

The 16GB model of iPhone is no more, with Apple introducing 32GB as the standard base storage option. The 32GB iPhone will start at £719, which is actually £100 more than the iPhone 6S Plus started at before the event. The 128GB model is £819, while the 256GB model costs £919.

For the first time, the iPhone is available in five colours, including the new Black variation and Jet Black, a glossy variation that is only available in the 128GB and 256GB options, not the base 32GB.

Pre-orders of the iPhone 7 Plus kicked off on 9 September, and shipping began on 16 September, but the iPhone 7 Plus is sold out already. On 14 September, Apple revealed that initial quantities of the iPhone 7 Plus had sold out in all colours and capacities. That means, unless you pre-ordered the iPhone 7 Plus, you're unlikely to be able to get your hands on one for several weeks.

Apple spokesperson Trudy Muller said: "We sincerely appreciate our customers' patience as we work hard to get the new iPhone into the hands of everyone who wants one as quickly as possible."

Apple's website is currently touting a 2 to 3 weeks dispatch time for the iPhone 7 Plus. Unless you want a Jet Black model, in which case you're looking at a November dispatch date.

iPhone 7 Plus release date, price & specs: Design & build

The first thing you might notice about the iPhone 7 Plus line-up is that there are five models, two of which are new (bye, bye Space Grey). You can now get the iPhone in Silver, Gold, Rose Gold, Black and Jet Black.

Jet Black is a high-gloss model that Apple is using in most of its promotional videos and photos. It has a stainless steel Apple logo.

The iPhone 7 Plus also doesn't have any antenna lines across the black, so it looks more unibody than ever, and you'll spot that dual-camera on the rear too, but we'll talk more about that later.

In terms of build, the iPhone 7 Plus is water and dust resistant – IP67 protection standard means you can’t quite take it for a long swim, as highest protection is IP68, but it should be fine in up to one metre of water for up to 30 minutes.

iPhone 7 Plus release date, price & specs: Screen

The display on the iPhone 7 Plus is improved, now 25% brighter than the iPhone 6 Plus, with a wide colour gamut, colour management and the continuation of 3D Touch capabilities.

iPhone 7 Plus release date, price & specs: Camera

The iPhone 7 Plus's exclusive new feature is the new camera system. The iPhone 7 camera is improved with optical image stabilisation for the first time on a base iPhone model, but the iPhone 7 Plus boasts a dual lens set up that improves with two 12Mp cameras.

One of those lenses is the usual wide angle, the other is a telephoto lens. These cameras combine to create a zoom feature that works within the tiny body of a smartphone. You have the option to choose between 1x and 2x – 2x gives you the effect of a telephoto lens. This is an optical zoom. You can also touch and drag up to 10x zoom, which is a software based zoom but still using the telephoto lens, so expect much better results.

These two cameras are a powered by a 1/3in sensor and slightly smaller 1/3.6in sensor. This discovery was made by, which was also announced at the iPhone 7 launch, comes out for iPhone.

Apple claims the A10 Fusion gives the iPhone 7 Plus the longest ever battery life for an iPhone - at least an hour more battery life than the iPhone 6s Plus.

iPhone 7 Plus release date, price & specs: Other features

The speakers in the iPhone 7 Plus, for the first time, are stereo. One is on the top, the other on the bottom.

That also brings us on to EarPods and AirPods. It was all true as Apple waves goodbye to the 3.5mm headphone jack. Apple will bundle Lightning EarPods with every iPhone 7 and 7 Plus along with a Lightning to mini-port adapter.

Apple also announced AirPods, which are wireless versions of Apple’s famous EarPods. They are the same shape as EarPods without wires. They cleverly have Siri integration thanks to inbuilt mics. One charge will give you 5 hours of battery life and the case holds 24 hours of charge for power on the go. The AirPods are clever enough to let you switch between Apple devices depending on which you are using for audio.

Finally, Japan units of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will now include Felica tech, allowing Japanese Apply Pay users to use the service with Japan’s most used contactless standards.
