Happy Birthday to iPhone! Today is the day when Apple’s late Chief Executive Officer (CEO) introduced the first-ever Apple’s smartphone. Yes, the original version of Apple’s smartphone was unveiled on 9th January 2007 in San Francisco.
Apple’s first smartphone was a combination of three products—a mobile phone, a music player, and an Internet device with a number of tools. At that time, it was not an ordinary smartphone for the people and it attracted almost every mobile phone user, but not everyone was able to afford it. iPhone is now ten years old and a lot of new features have been introduced in this device.
To compete with iPhone, the world’s largest search engine Google created Android operating system, which is now available in most of the modern smartphones from famous companies like the HTC, Sony, Samsung, Huawei, and more. Although Android offers a bundle of apps and games through Google’s Play Store, the people who love Apple’s devices still use iPhone.
With the introduction of Apple’s first smartphone, one of the biggest smartphone manufacturing company BlackBerry suffered from massive financial loss.
The first version of Apple’s smartphone came with a 3.5-inch display with an average resolution of 320×480 pixels. The device was available in 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB memory choices and featured a 2MP basic camera with no support for selfies. For web browsing, there was a basic Safari web browser, which used basic 2G connectivity.
The iPhone of today comes with a modern 5.5-inches display with 3GB RAM and 12MP rear camera, 7MP front shooter for taking some selfies. The device is powered by a 2900 mAh battery and has a fingerprint scanner. Apple is now reportedly working on iPhone 7S, 7S-Plus, and iPhone 8 and the analysts are saying that the modern features in today’s iPhone are just the beginning, and we will see even more options in this smartphone in future.
