There are plenty of things Apple’s website, unboxing pictures and text descriptions of the iPhone 7 don’t convey very well. Things like how the taptic engine feels and what you get when you buy a certain colour of the iPhone. That is where we start our discussion. The home button is a big part of the episode and how Apple has managed to simulate a physical home button via the taptic engine.

We also talk about the fact that the new iPhones have been in short supply in the first few weeks of their launch and why you should avoid buying from the grey market. That’s before Rishi takes over to talk about what the new iPhones mean for those who play games. Before we conclude the discussion, we talk about the battery life – and whether that has improved over previous iPhones.
