HTC 10

For about $50 less than the 7, the HTC 10 has a whole range of goodies, including colors like Topaz Gold and Glacier. The rear camera is an impressive 12MP, though the front one is just 5MP, which is a far cry from the iPhone 7’s 8. 4GB of RAM keeps it from feeling too dated, though the 2.15GHz dual-core doesn’t. I don’t scream, but it definitely screams loud enough. For audio, the headphone jack (yes, it has one) is awesome, delivering great sound that Bluetooth can’t touch. Notice to audiophiles.

Will the iPhone 7 get iOS 16?

Unfortunately no, iOS 15 is the end of the line for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which means you will no longer be able to use the features available in iOS 16. The devices are currently running iOS 15.6.1 , a version that was released on August 17, 2022.

This is a surprising move from Apple where many expected the phone to get the new update thanks to its ever-relevant performance and processing power. But it seems that the newly introduced features, APIs and SDKs have some requirements that can only be supported on iPhone SE 2nd generation and later.
