The iPhone 7 Plus was released in 2016 as a bigger version than the standard iPhone 7, with a 5.5-inch screen and featured upgrades across the board. The phone, and Apple as a whole, stood up to a lot of criticism, as this was the first set of phones to completely remove the headphone jack in the name of pushing the technology forward and fully investing in wireless technology, which was unfortunate for the consumers that have wired headphones.
