iPhone 7 release date UK, iPhone 7 price, iPhone 7 specs: iPhone 7 launches, pre-orders from 9 Sept - where to buy the iPhone 7

Apple unveiled the new iPhone 7 alongside its bigger sibling the iPhone 7 Plus during a special event on 7 September. The iPhone 7 has IP67 water- and dust-proofing, a faster 12MP, f/1.8 rear-facing camera and 7Mp front-facing camera (up from 5Mp on the iPhone 6s), new colour finishes - Jet Black and (matt) Black, replacing the old Space Grey - and much more.

Read on for all of the information you need about Apple's new iPhone 7, including the iPhone 7's release date in the UK, the iPhone 7's price, and all of the iPhone 7's new features and specs. There's a lot to cover, so let's get started.

iPhone 7 release date: When is the iPhone 7 coming out?

The iPhone 7 was announced on 7 September, and will be available to pre-order from 9 September, which is this Friday. Pre-orders will start at 8.01am UK time, and will continue until the official onsale date on 16 September. That date will be for 30 countries including the US and UK. Another 30 countries will follow a week later.

iPhone 7 price: How much does the iPhone 7 cost?

The iPhone 7 is available in five colours: silver, gold, Rose gold, black and Jet Black. With the exception of Jet Black (which is only available for the more expensive 128GB and 256GB storage options) these are each available with 32GB, 128GB and 256GB of storage.

UK prices start at £599 for the 32GB models.

Pre-orders of the iPhone 7 will kick off at 8.01am on the Apple Store Online, but will also be available from third-party carriers and stores. Follow the links below to go to the pre-order pages for each vendor, and bookmark them ready for Friday's early start. We'd recommend pre-ordering as soon as you can to avoid disappointment - if you pre-order too late you may find that you have a longer wait before the iPhone lands in your hands, and expect huge queues outside Apple Stores on launch day.

iPhone 7 release date, price & specs: Design

The iPhone 7 looks broadly similar to the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6 before it, but there are some key differences. As expected (indeed, most of the announcements I'm going to talk about were leaked ahead of the event), the antenna has been redesigned to fit inside the enclosure: in his traditional video, Jonathan Ive said the design "essentially makes it disappear". This gives the phone smoother lines and less cluttered design - something that is also helped by the controversial loss of the 3.5mm headphone jack… but we'll come to that later.

There are now five colour options: silver, gold and Rose Gold as before, but Space Grey is replaced by two new black finishes - a gloss Jet Black, and a matt black (that's just "black" - that's the name of it). Jet Black is sort of more expensive than the other options, in the sense that you can only get it if you go for the middle or top storage option.
