iphone 7

BT Broadband customers can pre-order the brand new Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus with a £120 discount from tomorrow (September 9th).

The £120 discount is spread out over the course of the phone’s contract with £5 being deducted from the total bill every month for two years, with 24 months being the minimum term.

The offer applies to homeowners with BT Broadband already installed and can be used on all BT smartphone plans.

Currently, its most basic plan offers 500MB of data and 400 minutes a month with unlimited texts, stretching up to 3GB with 1,000 minutes and 15GB with unlimited minutes. 

It remains unclear whether the £100 iTunes or Amazon gift card currently offered with iPhone 6 deals will remain in place for the new generation smartphone. 

BT hasn’t pinned any time limit on the offer but it’d be wise to take advantage sooner rather than later to avoid any disappointment. Free next day delivery is offered on all new iPhones ordered before 4pm on weekdays or 11am on Saturday. 

Apple says prices will start from £599 for the 32GB iPhone 7, jumping to £699 for the 64GB model and £799 for the 256GB. How those prices will translate into monthly payments will be revealed on BT’s website soon.

New features

The iPhone 7 has made headlines by being the first phone manufacturer to do away with the headphone jack socket. Instead, each iPhone 7 comes with a pair of EarPods - completely wireless earphones that provide five hours of listening from a single charge. 

A lightning- to mini-phono adaptor is included in the iPhone’s box for those that want to keep using their traditional wired headphones. 

Sacrificing the headphone jack has allowed the iPhone 7 to be dust- and water-resistant, and can be used at depths of one metre for half an hour. It also means there’s space for a larger battery, with the 7 lasting for two hours longer than the iPhone 6S. 

Less surprising changes include more storage with 32GB, 128GB and 256GB options, and two new colours - black and jet black - in addition to the rose gold, gold and silver shades carried over from the 6. 

There’s also an improved camera that now includes optical image stabilisation, while the resolution of the traditionally inferior front-facing camera has been upped from five megapixels to seven.

That’s just a sweeping overview of the iPhone 7’s new features. You can get a more in-depth look at our ‘five things you need to know’ feature.
