Just like the last two years, Apple has launched the standard iPhone 7 and the Plus variant of it, which is not just a plus with the size but with a few other aspects too. The Apple iPhone 7 Plus is released for sale in different markets already and as usual creating confusion in the minds of users because of its model numbers.

How different is the iPhone 7 Plus from the iPhone 7? The price is obviously higher because the iPhone 7 Plus not just has a bigger screen and better resolution along with a high-capacity battery, this time, Apple has made sure that the camera on the 7 Plus is also a different one. So, the iPhone 7 Plus comes with a dual-lens rear camera setup. Here, the first lens is the standard one and the other one is a telephoto lens that helps in producing optical zoom while capturing pictures.

The SIM-free versions of iPhone 7 Plus too will be available in the market but the ones that you can get through the network providers have different model numbers. That is a major confusion in the minds of buyers, so we are here trying to solve that by helping you in getting the right info about each model number and part number of the iPhone 7 Plus from Apple.
