Apple is now offering […]

It used to be that back in the day, specialized and expensive equipment would be required to complete certain tasks. However with technology getting better and more accessible to the masses, it becomes less about the equipment but rather the skill and vision of the person using it, like we can see in the latest cover of the Billboard magazine.
The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are similar in more ways than one aside from the fact that the latter is larger and exclusively offers the dual-camera setup.

There are all kinds of things we take into consideration when choosing a new smartphone. Specs are of course important, along with its operating system, and the accompanying ecosystem. However there are also other things to factor in, such as repairability because sometimes you don’t want to have to end up spending a fortune to get a phone fixed.
One of the unique features of the iPhone 7 Plus would be its dual camera setup and a “Portrait Mode” in which it allows users to snap photos with decent-looking bokeh. Unfortunately it seems that for some reason, quite a few users are reporting that their iPhone 7 Plus cameras are “dying” on them.
From the various tests that we’ve seen, Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus is currently the reigning champion when it comes to speed tests conducted between some of the top devices from today. For example we’ve seen it trump the Note 7 from Samsung, the Pixel XL from Google, and also seen how it trounced its predecessor, the iPhone 6s.

So the question is, how does a $50,000 RED Weapon camera fare against the iPhone 7 Plus which costs a fraction of the price?
One of the features exclusive to the iPhone 7 Plus is Portrait Mode that arrived in the iOS 10.1 update.

The thing about lithium-ion batteries is that when they become damaged, they also become dangerous and have been known to balloon up in size and explode. Over in China, it has been recently reported how one user dropped their iPhone 7 Plus on the ground, only to have it swell up and explode on them.
One of the key features of the iPhone 7 Plus over the smaller iPhone 7 would be its dual lens camera, and also the Portrait Mode within its camera app that was launched with iOS 10.1. Basically by combining both lenses, it will allow the iPhone 7 Plus’ camera to achieve a similar bokeh-like effect that DSLRs can.
