ONLY RECENTLY, APPLE announced the latest editions to its iPhone range: the 7 and 7 Plus.

Both come with a number of upgrades and improvements including water-resistance – it has an IP67 rating - improved hardware and graphics chips, and the introduction of two 12MP cameras with the 7 Plus for optical zoom features,

It also marks the removal of the headphone jack, but it’ll come with wired earbuds and an adaptor for traditional headphones.

More importantly, both devices will start with 32GB as the minimum storage offered, scrapping the oft-criticised decision to make 16GB the standard.

But the cost of it might put you back, especially if you’re planning on buying an unlocked version.

On the Apple store, the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 will start at €779 unlocked. If you want to increase the storage, the 128GB version will cost €889 while the 256GB will cost €999.

An important point to note, and mentioned earlier, is these prices are for the unlocked versions of both iPhone devices.

If you decide to buy them from a network provider like Vodafone, Three or Meteor, the upfront cost will be less but like all phones, you will be factoring in the length and cost of the contract you’re signing up to.

The iPhone 7 will be available to pre-order on 9 September and will officially arrive in Ireland on 16 September.
