The Journey of iPhone from 2007 – 2016
The iPhone is one of the star products from Apple. Since its launch in 2007 until today, iPhone has positioned itself as the mobile that revolutionized the mobile industry. According to the sources, the mobile industry now accounts for over 4.2% of world GDP and iPhone is one big contributor to that percentage.
It was June 29, 2007, when the ‘iPhone was launched in the US market, at 18:00 local time. From there, the iPhone started its journey. Let’s have a look at the Infographic that provides a clear insight of the iPhone journey and see everything that has changed this mobile device.
The iPhone first generation original iPhone or iPhone classic went on to sell more than 7 million units and was named the invention of the year by the Time magazine in 2009 .
As the name suggests, the 3G iPhone was the first phone to incorporate Apple 3G capacity. Within the first week of its launch, the phone made the sale of over 1 million units.
The third generation of iPhone, presented during the WWDC 2009, was the first phone to double your RAM up to 256 MB incorporating a 32GB model. Like its predecessor, more than 1 million units were sold only in the first week of its sales.
iPhone 4 represented an aesthetic revolution compared to its predecessors with glass enclosures, in addition to a major step forward doubling the resolution and introducing the front camera for the first time. It is one of the oldest history iPhones with 4 years of life.
With exactly the same aesthetic like its predecessor, the iPhone 4s was one of the best seller smartphones in the history, selling more than 17 million units, of which 4 million were sold during their first week.
With the sixth generation, the iPhone arrives first at 4 – inch screen and 1GB of RAM, selling more than 5 million units during its first days on the market. It was the time when iPhone fever was on the boom.
Launched by the name of iPhone 5s, this phone intended to be a low-cost iPhone with a rear polycarbonate shell, but the fact is that its price was very similar to other versions. It was the first iPhone in implementing colors on the iPhone, ranging among white, pink, yellow, green, blue, and the traditional black and white color.
iPhone 5s was the first phone to incorporate the Touch ID Home button to the device. They also come in different colors, though somewhat more elegant than his little brother: space, gold and silver gray. In a year it sold more than 10 million units.
The penultimate generation iPhones to date was a sizable jump; the 4.7 – inch iPhone 6 was the least larger of the two devices submitted in September 2014. Along with its older brother, Apple sold over 75 million units of iPhone 6 in the fourth quarter.
iPhone 6 Plus
If the 4.7 – inch iPhone 6 was already a revolution, the release of iPhone 6 plus with the 5.5-inch large screen left all in a state of shock.
The iPhone 6s inherits the best of iPhone 6 with an identical screen with an improvement in its performance with the new A9 processor and allegedly twice the RAM than its predecessor. The cameras have also improved with the ability to record in 4K, and pink promises to cause a sensation.
iPhone 6s Plus
Obviously, the iPhone 6s Plus is more or less the iPhone 6 Plus. This model becomes the best iPhone ever in terms of performance with the new A9 chip, improved camera at 12 and 5 Mpx respectively, and the arrival of 3D Touch this new phone.
iPhone 6 SE
The iPhone marked a return to the small screen (in this case, 4 inches) after Apple’s foray into increasingly larger diagonals. In terms of design, its appearance is almost identical to the iPhone 5s (same screen resolution), but with somewhat better components, doubling the RAM, increasing battery capacity and maintaining the same rear camera that the iPhone 6S.
The iPhone 7 launched just today brings revolutionary new features to the iPhone including the new SoC A10 Fusion, water and dust resistant qualities, AirPods with lightening connectors, Retina HD display that is brighter and colorful, improved speed and updated iOS version 10. With this all, iPhone 7 introduces two new colors called Jet Black (gloss black) and Black (black) to its iPhone color range.
