Are you waiting for Tim Cook on stage this fall?
Well, maybe you don't wait for the next iterations of Steve's masterpiece (allegedly the 7s, 7s Plus, and the 8) but for a good price for some predecessors, the
iPhone 7/7 Plus 6s/6s Plus SE
with great cameras.
All these models have 12-megapixel rear cameras, but there is a meaningful difference in the front-facing camera resolution. The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have a sharp 7-megapixel camera; the 6S and 6S Plus have a decent 5-megapixels; the iPhone SE can only offer a grainy 1.2-megapixel selfie experience.
Apple followed an industry trend and made the rear-facing camera aperture larger (iPhone 7/7 Plus f/1.8 and iPhone 6s/6s Plus/SE f/2.2). The larger aperture means more light can get to the imaging sensor, for better captures in different levels of light.
Optical Image Stabilization …
OIS technology keeps your captures still even when your hands are shaky. It's fairly common in Android phones, but as far as iPhones go, it's only found in the 6S Plus and the series 7 phones.
Optical Zoom …
Only the iPhone 7 Plus has a dual-lens camera with optical zoom and improved digital zoom. It lets you take sharper pictures, from farther away. The rest of the iPhones, like most smartphones, are restricted to digital zoom only (which is really just a type of image cropping).
Flash Type …
The flash on iPhone 7 and 7 Plus has been updated from a dual LED to a quad LED. The newer flash does seem to improve tonal range and decrease unwanted contrast.
My recommendation …
if you're still on a 4S, 5, or 5S
Buy a 7 Plus and take a lot of great shots.
I don't buy a new device because I disagree with
"It’s easy. Just trade in your eligible smartphone, and then use the credit to lower the full cost of a new iPhone or to reduce the monthly payments with your carrier."

What's your take Lisa Jackson as the VP of Environment at Apple Inc?
My 6S Plus makes great shots, right?
No need to let the mining machines in the Democratic Republic of Congo go for Tantalite for a new device.
