By Jules Wang September 7, 2016, 3:34 pm

With the iPhone 7 event over and all the nitty gritty details splayed out on Apple’s site, we should probably get to talking about them.

This year’s devices have introduced plenty of single-aspect enhancements that are pertinent and important as to describe what these smartphones are, so if you want to take a look at our earlier coverage for a deeper dive into those things, go ahead.

But you came here for the figures. Here they are:
