As one of the biggest tech events of the year draws to a close, it's time to catch our breath. By now, you may've heard all about Apple's new iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and second-generation Watch, as well as the slew of software releasedates also announced today. But let's revisit the two new smartphones unveiled on stage and get down to the brass tacks of how much they're gonna cost.

iPhone 7

The iPhone 7 isn't significantly different from its predecessor in terms of design, though the antenna bands have been rearranged and cover less surface area than before. The main changes include IP67 waterproofing, a new haptic home button, A10 Fusion processor, improved display colour range and better cameras up front and round back. As expected, the 3.5mm headphone jack is gone, with a Lightning EarPods and a 3.5mm adapter replacing it. Also, this time around, there is no 16GB storage option, with the base model now packing 32 gigs as standard. Bear in mind the new Jet Black colour option is only available in 128GB and 256GB configurations, though.

iPhone 7 Plus

Take all the new bits and bobs on the iPhone 7, stick them in a bigger chassis with a 5.5-inch display, and you've got the iPhone 7 Plus. That is, apart from the camera, which is where the model differs most meaningfully from its smaller sibling. A first for iPhones, Apple has equipped its latest large-screen handset with dual rear-facing cameras. Similar setups have been explored by several other manufacturers before, of course, so the feature set is pretty familiar. They take two distinct pictures that allow you to zoom and play with focal point and depth of field after the fact, though the latter tricks won't be available until a software update drops later this year. As with the iPhone 7, the Jet Black variant is only available with 128GB or 256GB of internal storage.

32GB£719September 9thSeptember 16th

This is all direct-from-Apple pricing, of course, but as you'd expect a preliminary email blast from the four major carriers confirms both phones will indeed be sold on contract by EE, O2, Three and Vodafone.
