Apple unveiled the new iPhones on Wednesday in the United States, with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus coming in rose gold, gold, silver, black, and "jet black".

One of the most notable changes to the handset was Apple's decision to remove the physical headphone jack from its iPhone 7 and 7 Plus handsets in lieu of AirPod Lightning-enabled headphones -- which has a third of Australian consumers "concerned".

The iPhone 7 features a 4.7-inch Retina HD display, quad-core A10 Fusion processor, 7-megapixel FaceTime HD front-facing camera, 12-megapixel rear camera with 6-element lens, a non-physical Home button featuring Force Touch feedback, and water- and dust-proofing to IP67 standard.

The iPhone 7 Plus comes with a 5.5-inch Retina HD display, quad-core A10 Fusion processor, two 12-megapixel wide-angle and telephoto cameras with 2x optical zoom, a non-physical Home button featuring Force Touch feedback, and water- and dust-proofing to IP67 standard.
