The history of the iPhone line of smartphones begins with a direction from Steve Jobs to Apple

Inc.'s engineers, whereby he asked them to investigate touchscreens and a tablet computer, which
later came to fruition with iPad.[1][2][3][4] Also, many have noted the device's similarities to Apple's
previous touch-screen portable device, the Newton MessagePad.[5][6][7][8] Like the Newton, iPhone is
nearly all screen. Its form factor is credited to Apple's head of design, Jonathan Ive.[3][9]
In April 2003 at the "All Things Digital" executive conference, Jobs expressed his belief that tablet
PCs and traditional PDAs were not good choices as high-demand markets for Apple to enter, despite
many requests made to him that Apple create another PDA. He did believe that cell phones were
going to become important devices for portable information access, and that what mobile phones
needed to have was excellent synchronization software. At the time, instead of focusing on a followup to their Newton PDA, Jobs had Apple put its energies into iPod, and the iTunes software (which
can be used to synchronize content with iPod devices), released January 2001. [10][11][12][13] On
September 7, 2005, Apple and Motorola released the ROKR E1, the first mobile phone to
use iTunes. Jobs was unhappy with the ROKR, feeling that having to compromise with a non-Apple
designer (Motorola) prevented Apple from designing the phone they wanted to make. [14] In
September 2006, Apple discontinued support for the ROKR and released a version of iTunes that
included references to an as-yet unknown mobile phone that could display pictures and video. [15] Ed
Zander (Motorola CEO at the time) inspired Steve Jobs with Moto's multimedia (e.g., iTunes) +
smartphone product concept. In result, Apple gained new product concept which was named
"iPhone" while Motorola ironically walked away with limited version of iTunes app for Rokr/Slvr.
On January 9, 2007 Steve Jobs announced iPhone at the Macworld convention, receiving
substantial media attention,[16] and that it would be released later that year. On June 29, 2007 the first
iPhone was released.
On June 11, 2007 announced at the Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference that iPhone would
support third-party applications using the Safariengine on the device. Third parties would create
the Web 2.0 applications and users would access them via the internet.[17] Such applications
appeared even before the release of iPhone; the first being "OneTrip", a program meant to keep
track of the user's shopping list.[18] On June 29, 2007, Apple released version 7.3 of iTunes to
coincide with the release of iPhone.[19] This release contains support for iPhone service activation
and syncing.
According to The Wall Street Journal, iPhone is manufactured on contract in the Shenzhen factory of
the Taiwanese company Hon Hai (also known as Foxconn).[20]

Exclusivity tying of iPhone to AT&T[edit]


When Apple initially released iPhone on June 29, 2007,[21] it was sold exclusively
with AT&T (formerly Cingular) contracts in the United States.[14] The tying arrangement between
Apple's smartphone and a specific service provider caused some controversy, bringing the concepts
of jailbreaking and bricking into the mainstream debate over the future of smartphone technology.
[citation needed]

History[edit]

iPhone series (front)

After a year and a half of negotiations, Steve Jobs reached an agreement with the wireless division
of the telecom giant AT&T (Cingular at the time) to be the iPhone's carrier. In return for five years of
exclusivity, roughly 10 percent of iPhone sales in AT&T stores, and a thin slice of
Apple's iTunes revenue, AT&T granted Apple roughly $10 a month from every iPhone customer's
AT&T bill.[citation needed] In return, consumers were unable to use any other carrier without heavily
modifying their device.
Apple retained complete control over the design, manufacturing, and marketing of iPhone. [22]
Since some customers were trying to jailbreak their iPhone to avoid the AT&T network, AT&T
decided to charge consumers if they were to leave the network. This caused complaints among
many consumers, as they were forced to pay an additional early termination fee of $175 to end the
contract, and the device would remain locked.[23] Other companies such as Google complained that
tying encourages a more closed-access-based wireless service.

The iPhone is the first smartphone model designed and marketed by Apple. It is the first
generation of iPhone that was announced on January 9, 2007 after years of rumors and speculation.
[8]

It was introduced in the United States on June 29, 2007, and it featured quad-band GSM cellular
connectivity with GPRS and EDGEsupport for data transfer.
On June 9, 2008, Apple announced its successor, the iPhone 3G. The original iPhone has not
received software updates from Apple after iPhone OS (now iOS) 3.1.3.
Since June 11, 2013, the original iPhone has been considered "obsolete" in Apple retail stores,
"vintage" by other service providers in the US, and "obsolete" in all other regions. [9] Apple does not
service vintage or obsolete products, and replacement parts for obsolete products are not available
to service providers.

On July 11, 2008, Apple released the iPhone 3G across twenty-two countries in two storage options,
8GB and 16GB. The 16GB model was produced in either black or white. [11][12]
Following the release of the successor iPhone 3GS model one year later, the iPhone 3G remained
on sale but became Apple's budget phone offer, with its price cut in half. This $99 iPhone 3G
required a two-year contract and was available only in black and with 8 GB of storage, but came
bundled with updated iPhone OS 3.0 software.[13] On June 7, 2010, the iPhone 3G was finally

discontinued, and replaced as Apple's budget phone by an 8 GB iPhone 3GS selling for the same
price of $99 with a 2-year contract.

The iPhone 3GS (originally styled iPhone 3G S [7]) is a smartphone that was designed and marketed
by Apple Inc. It is the thirdgeneration iPhone, successor to the iPhone 3G. It was introduced on June
8, 2009,[8] at the WWDC 2009 which took place at theMoscone Center, San Francisco.

This iPhone is named "3GS" where "S" stood for Speed (Phil Schiller had mentioned it in the launch
keynote[9]). Improvements include performance, a 3-megapixel camera with higher resolution and
video ability, voice control,[10] and support for 7.2 Mbit/sHSDPA downloading (but remains limited
to 384 kbps uploading as Apple had not implemented the HSUPA protocol).[11] It was released in the
USA, Canada, and six European countries on June 19, 2009,[4] in Australia and Japan on June 26,
and internationally in July and August 2009.
The iPhone 3GS runs Apple's iOS operating system. It is controlled mostly by a user's fingertips on
a multi-touch display. It was succeeded as Apple's flagship smartphone in 2010 by the iPhone 4;
however, the 3GS continued in production until September 2012 when the iPhone 5 was announced.

The iPhone 4 is a smartphone that was designed and marketed by Apple Inc. Following a number of
notable leaks, the iPhone 4 was first unveiled on June 7, 2010, at Apple's Worldwide Developers
Conference in San Francisco,[6] and was released on June 24, 2010, in the United States, United
Kingdom, France, Germany and Japan. It is the 4th generation of iPhone, succeeding the 3GSand
preceding the very similar 4S.

The iPhone 4 introduced a new hardware design to the iPhone family, which Apple's CEO Steve
Jobs touted as the thinnest smartphone in the world at the time; it consisted of an uninsulated
stainless steel frame which doubles as an antenna, with internal components situated between
chemically strengthened aluminosilicate glass.[7] The iPhone 4 also introduced Apple's new highresolution "Retina Display"; while maintaining the same physical size and aspect ratio as its
precursors, its liquid crystal display had apixel density of 326 pixels per inch. The iPhone 4 also
introduced Apple's A4 system-on-chip, along with iOS 4which notably introduced multitasking
functionality and Apple's new FaceTime video chat service. The iPhone 4 was also the first iPhone to
include a front-facing camera, and the first to be released in a version for CDMA networks,
ending AT&T's period as the exclusive carrier of iPhone products in the United States.
It was succeeded as Apple's flagship smartphone in 2011 by the iPhone 4S. However, iPhone 4
continued to be produced until 2013.
The iPhone 4 received generally positive reception, with critics praising its revamped design and
more powerful hardware in comparison to previous models. While it was a market success, with over
600,000 pre-orders within 24 hours, the release of the iPhone 4 was plagued by highly publicized
reports that abnormalities in its new antenna design caused the device to lose its cellular signal if
held in a certain way. Most human contact with the phone's outer edge would cause a significant
decrease in signal strength.
The iPhone 4 spent the longest time as Apple's flagship iPhone model at fifteen months, and had the
longest lifespan of any iPhoneever produced, spanning close to four years and available in
some developing countries until early 2014.

The iPhone 4S (retroactively stylized with a lowercase 's' as iPhone 4s as of September 2013[8]) is
a smartphone that was designed and marketed by Apple Inc. It is the fifth generation of the iPhone,
[9]

succeeding the iPhone 4 and preceding the iPhone 5. Announced on October 4, 2011 at Apple's

Cupertino campus,[10] its media coverage was accompanied by news of the death of former
Apple CEO and co-founder Steve Jobs on the following day.
Orders could be placed on October 7, 2011 and mainstream availability in retail stores began on
October 14, 2011 in the United States, Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany,
and Japan, sales peaked over its predecessor with more than a million sales in the first twenty-four
hours of order availability and more than four million sales in the first four days of retail availability.
Further worldwide rollout, including 22 additional countries on October 28, came over the next
several months.[11]
This iPhone was named "4S" where "S" stood for Siri (Apple CEO Tim Cook confirmed that during
the Q&A session at the D10 conference in May 2012, [12][13]) an iPhone 4S-exclusive intelligent
personal assistant that was later included in future generations of mobile Apple products. Retaining
the most of the external design of the iPhone 4, the 4S hosted revised hardware specifications, most
notably an upgrade to the Apple A5 chipset, and an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p video recording.
It debuted with iOS 5, the fifth major version of iOS, Apple's mobile operating system, that introduced
features including iCloud, iMessage, Notification Center,Reminders, and Twitter integration.

The iPhone 5 is a smartphone that was designed and marketed by Apple Inc. It is the sixth
generation of the iPhone, succeeding theiPhone 4S and preceding the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C.
Formally unveiled as part of a press event on September 12, 2012, it was released on September
21, 2012.[12] It was the first iPhone to be completely developed under the guidance of Tim Cook.
The iPhone 5 featured major design changes in comparison to its predecessor. These included an
aluminum-based body which was thinner and lighter than previous models, a taller screen with a
nearly 9:16 aspect ratio, the Apple A6 system-on-chip, LTE support, and Lightning, a new
compact dock connector which replaced the 30-pin design used by previous iPhone models. This
was the second Apple phone to include its new Sony made 8MP Camera, first introduced on
the iPhone 4S.
Apple began taking pre-orders on September 14, 2012,[2] and over two million were received within
24 hours.[6] Initial demand for the iPhone 5 exceeded the supply available at launch on September
21, 2012, and was described by Apple as "extraordinary", with pre-orders having sold twenty times
faster than its predecessors. While reception to the iPhone 5 was generally positive, consumers and

reviewers noted hardware issues, such as an unintended purple hue in photos taken, and the
phone's coating being prone to chipping. Reception was also mixed over Apple's decision to switch
to a different dock connector design, as the change affected iPhone 5's compatibility with
accessories that were otherwise compatible with previous iterations of the line.
The iPhone 5 was officially discontinued by Apple on September 10, 2013 with the announcement of
its successors, the iPhone 5Sand the iPhone 5C.[13] The iPhone 5 had the shortest lifespan of any
iPhone ever produced with only twelve months in production.

The iPhone 5S (marketed with a stylized lowercase 's' as iPhone 5s) is a smartphone designed and
marketed by Apple Inc. Part of the iPhone series, the device was unveiled on September 10, 2013 at
Apple's Cupertino headquarters. It was released on September 20, 2013 along with its mid-range
counterpart, the iPhone 5C.[12]

The iPhone's SIM card tray is made of aluminium and it is a nano-SIM tray.

The iPhone 5S maintains almost the same design to its predecessor, the iPhone 5. A redesigned
home button with Touch ID, afingerprint recognition system which can be used to unlock the phone
and authenticate App Store and iTunes Store purchases, has been introduced. The camera has
been updated with a larger aperture and a dual-LED flash optimized for different color temperatures.
It also introduced the A7 dual-core processor, which the company proclaimed to be the first 64bit processor to be used on a smartphone, accompanied by the M7 "motion co-processor". Unlike
previous models, the iPhone 5S shipped in a white/gold color scheme in addition to white/silver and
gray/black.
The iPhone 5S was the first Apple device to ship with iOS 7, which introduced a revamped visual
appearance and other new features. Designed by Jonathan Ive, iOS 7 departs
from skeuomorphic elements used by previous versions of iOS in favor of a flat, colorful design.
Among new software features introduced to the iPhone 5S include AirDrop, an ad-hoc Wi-Fi sharing
platform, Control Center, a control panel containing a number of commonly used functions,
and iTunes Radio, an internet radio service. Earphones known as EarPods are included with the
iPhone 5S. Apple has released accessories including a case and a dock for the iPhone 5S.

Reception towards the device was generally positive, with some outlets considering it to be best
smartphone available on the market due to its upgraded hardware, Touch ID, and other changes
introduced by iOS 7.[13] However, others criticized the iPhone 5S for being too similar to its
predecessors,[14] while others expressed security concerns about the Touch ID system. [15] Nine million
units of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C were sold on their weekend of release, breaking Apple's sales
record for iPhones.[16] The iPhone 5S was the best selling phone on all major U.S. carriers in
September 2013.

The iPhone 5C (marketed with a stylized lowercase 'c' as iPhone 5c) is a smartphone designed and
marketed by Apple Inc. The device was part of the iPhone series and was unveiled on September
10, 2013,[3][4] and released on September 20, 2013,[5][6] along with its higher-end counterpart,
the iPhone 5S.
The iPhone 5C is a variant of the iPhone 5, with similar hardware specifications but a hardcoated polycarbonate shell instead of the aluminium of the original iPhone 5. The iPhone 5C was
available in several color options, and shipped with iOS 7. The iPhone 5C was sold at a discounted
price point in comparison to the 5S: unlike Apple's prior practice of lowering the price of the previous
model upon release of a new version, the iPhone 5 was explicitly discontinued and replaced by the
5C. On September 9, 2014, the 16 and 32 GB iPhone 5C models were replaced by the 8 GB model
with the announcement of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. On September 9, 2015, the 8 GB version
was discontinued upon the announcement of the iPhone 6S.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are smartphones designed and marketed by Apple Inc. The
devices are part of the iPhone series and were announced on September 9, 2014, and released on
September 19, 2014.[16] The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus jointly serve as successors to the iPhone
5c and iPhone 5s.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus include a number of changes over their predecessor, including
models with larger 4.7 and 5.5 inches (120 and 140 mm) displays, a faster processor, upgraded
cameras, improved LTE and Wi-Fi connectivity and support for anear field communicationsbased mobile payments offering.[17][18]
The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus received positive reviews, with critics regarding their improved design,
specifications, camera, and battery life as being improvements over previous iPhone models.
However, aspects of the design of iPhone 6 were also panned, including plastic strips on the rear of
the device for its antenna that disrupted the otherwise metal exterior, and the screen resolution of
the standard-sized iPhone 6 being lower than other devices in its class. Pre-orders of the iPhone 6
and iPhone 6 Plus exceeded four million within its first 24 hours of availabilityan Apple record.
[19]

More than ten million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices were sold in the first three days,

another Apple record.[20]


Despite their positive reception, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have been the subject of several hardware
issues, including most prominently, being susceptible to bending under pressure (a design flaw
nicknamed "Bendgate"), and as a byproduct of this lack of rigidity, the touchscreen's hardware being
susceptible to losing its connection to the phone's logic board (nicknamed the "touch disease"). The
iPhone 6 Plus was also the subject of camera issues, including some devices with
malfunctioning optical image stabilization or otherwise faulty rear cameras.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were discontinued on September 7, 2016 when Apple released
the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

The iPhone SE (iPhone Special Edition[3]) is a smartphone designed and marketed by Apple Inc. as
part of the iPhone series of devices. It was unveiled on March 21, 2016, at Apple's Cupertino
headquarters and was released on March 31, 2016. It serves as a replacement for iPhone 5S as a
lower-cost entry in the iPhone product line; combining the updated processor, rear camera and other
features from the high-end iPhone 6S with the smaller 4-inch display and nearly identical styling to
the iPhone 5S, the only differences are the available colors (same as the iPhone 6S models) and the
matte chamfered edges. It is designed for users who prefer smartphones with smaller screens and is
a cheaper alternative to the iPhone 6S.
The iPhone SE is available in silver, space gray, gold and rose gold finishes,[4] and are priced

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are upcoming smartphones that are designed by Apple Inc. They
were announced on September 7, 2016 at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco by
Apple CEO Tim Cook. The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are the flagship iPhones, succeeding

the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. They are scheduled to be released on September 16, 2016, with
pre-orders beginning on September 9, 2016.[3]
The iPhone 7 features a new quad-core system-on-chip with improved system and graphics
performance; an updated display screen; water resistance; stereo speakers; upgraded cameras, and
a new dual-camera system on the 7 Plus model.[3] The 3.5 mmheadphone jack was removed, but
Apple included an adapter, along with earphones that connect to the Lightning port as an alternative.

Apple Inc., formerly Apple Computer, Inc., is a multinational corporation that creates consumer
electronics, personal computers, servers, and computer software, and is a digital distributor of media
content. The company also has a chain of retail stores known as Apple Stores. Apple's core product
lines are the iPhone smart phone, iPad tablet computer, iPod portable media players,
and Macintosh computer line. Founders Steve Jobsand Steve Wozniak created Apple Computer on
April 1, 1976,[1] and incorporated the company on January 3, 1977,[2] in Cupertino, California.
For more than three decades, Apple Computer was predominantly a manufacturer of personal
computers, including the Apple II, Macintosh, andPower Mac lines, but it faced rocky sales and low
market share during the 1990s. Jobs, who had been ousted from the company in 1985, returned to
Apple in 1996 after his company NeXT was bought by Apple.[3] The following year he became the
company's interim CEO,[4] which later became permanent.[5] Jobs subsequently instilled a new
corporate philosophy of recognizable products and simple design, starting with the original iMac in
1998.
With the introduction of the successful iPod music player in 2001 and iTunes Music Store in 2003,
Apple established itself as a leader in the consumer electronics and media sales industries, leading
it to drop "Computer" from the company's name in 2007. The company is now also known for
its iOS range of smart phone, media player, and tablet computer products that began with
the iPhone, followed by the iPod Touch and then iPad. As of 30 June 2015, Apple was the largest
publicly traded corporation in the world by market capitalization,[6] with an estimated value of US$530
billion as of February 2016. Apple's worldwide annual revenue in 2010 totaled US$65 billion, growing
to US$127.8 billion in 2011[7] and $156 billion in 2012.[8]
