Apple introduced the iPhone XR, XS and XS Max on September 12, 2018. The iPhone X was discontinued while both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 survived, giving consumers two lower cost options (and the option to keep the Home button for a few more years). Here is the new pricing breakdown for both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus which was originally released on September 16, 2016:
Apple has notified its authorized service providers of a rare issue where the iPhone mic stops working during phone calls or FaceTime video. The problem happens to some iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models running iOS 11.3 or later. Devices experiencing the problem may have a greyed-out speaker button while phone calls are in progress, with the owner unable to be heard by the other party on the line. The good news is that Apple has offered a fix to affected customers.
Some iPhone 7 owners are experiencing an issue with cellular connectivity, with their devices showing a "No Service" message despite coverage being available. The "No Service" problem affects a small percentage of iPhone 7 units manufactured between September 2016 and February 2018. A failed component on the main logic board is causing the problem. So how can iPhone 7 owners fix the "No Service" issue?
Apple has come under fire from the National Association of Broadcasters and the FCC over the lack of FM radio access on iPhones. Both groups have criticized Apple's reluctance to activate FM receivers following communications failures inflicted by hurricanes Harvey and Maria. There's only one problem: iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 models do not have FM radio chips on board.
The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus cannot be jailbroken at this time.
A future release of the Yalu jailbreak tool may support iOS 10.0 through iOS 10.1.1 on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. As of this writing, Yalu102 jailbreak beta 7 does not support these devices, only older 64-bit hardware.
