If you own an iPhone 6s, you're probably wondering whether the iPhone 7 is worth upgrading to. Should you make the switch now or wait until the iPhone 8 rolls around? This comparison chart breaks down how the two phones' specifications and features differ.

Note: Apple has acknowledged that the iOS 10 update has locked up some iPhones and iPads. Click here to find out more and to learn how to fix the issue.

As you can see below, there's not a huge amount of difference between the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 -- the chief enhancements are the addition of water resistance (a long-overdue feature) and a slightly improved camera. Otherwise, the iPhone 7 is a very minor evolution of what came before.

If you own an iPhone 6s and are happy with its photographic output, our advice would be to hold onto it for the time being. Here's how the two phones compare:

    Stating the bleeding obvious... wonder how Apple missed it in the comparison...

    I haven't seen a 6s with 32GB

      It was part of the release announcement that the 6s would have double the memory options as per the 7.

        Interesting move, the 32gb one is available on their website but can't see any other retailers who have this size.

        I wonder if they will wait until they sell their old stocks of 16gb phones before advertising the 32gb ones.

    The 7 is lighter? Nice. How does the battery life stack up?

      It is... by 5 whole grams. Nobody on the planet could tell the difference. That's roughly the weight of a standard piece of A4 paper.

        Perhaps not, but every little bit counts. https://www.amazon.com/Sank-Boat-Paperstar-Pamela-Allen/dp/069811373X

    Please stop calling digital zoom a feature, it IS NOT, it's a fraud an is nothing more than cropping. Why don't you call it digital resolution reduction.
