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 4 received generally positive reception. with critics praising its revamped design and more powerful hardware in comparison to previous models.[7] The iPhone 4 also introduced Apple's new highresolution "Retina Display". 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. spanning close to four years and available in some developing countries until early 2014.
