I took a little longer than normal, but my review of the new iPhone 7 Plus hit Tools & Toys yesterday.

This one clocked in around 5,000 words, which is probably too long for most. I guess I had a lot more to say than I originally thought.

Long story short, I’m thankful for a slowly-evolving iPhone. Drastic changes are starting to feel almost stressful — I know how my iPhone has always worked, and I don’t want that to change one iota. I have enough other things to think about during the day, so the last thing I need is an iPhone that cuts ties with its perfectly-operable past.

This is my third iPhone review for Tools & Toys in the last three years. Each year, the review is photographed amidst the yellows and reds of autumn outside. I think the autumn colours complement the ultra-minimal silver iPhone 7 Plus quite well.

As always, head over to Tools & Toys to read — and view — the whole review.
