This year the iPhone 2G was ten years old. Let us remember each presentation of Apple smartphones.
The first iPhone 2G was working on the iPhone OS. It was equipped with 17 applications and system updates were free, which set it apart from the iPod Touch, where the new system functions requested $ 20. The main differences became large display — 3.5 inches, capacitive. No stylus with the buttons — only control with your finger. Camera 2 MP, removable battery, the ability to choose a model with a memory of 4, 8 or 16 GB.
What was the most important, is the design, it was very good. Jobs has always attached importance to the details. How can you doubt the success of the first model, if a relatively large price of $ 500-600 for instance, Apple managed to sell about 7 million units and to reach a large market of mobile devices.
At WWDC 2008 introduced the iPhone 3G, which was deprived of hardware and software faults and worked on the new operating system iPhone OS 2.0. The mobile was cheaper than its predecessor and was sold in USA with contract operator. This, incidentally, was the first iPhone with a Russian localizaca. Was supports work in 3G networks, from which it gets its name.
One of the most important advances was the advent of the App Store with a bunch of programs that extend the capabilities of the device. To what extent increased sales? More than 5 times. Success is unconditional.
the iPhone 3GS is faster, because the “S” in the title meant the speed. Fans to play on the phone would just need to buy a new model, as updated stuffing began to resemble the hardware of the laptop — CPU Cortex-A8 with a frequency of 600 MHZ, 256 MB of RAM, separate graphics module PowerVR SGX 535. Smartphone became available in configurations of 8, 16 and 32 GB.
In iPhone OS 3.0 introduced a new function: copy and paste, send MMS, Spotlight, Speak Notes, Find my iPhone, the ability to download directly to the device television shows, music videos, movies and audiobooks, and more. Also in the system is multitasking, which meant the operation of various instant messengers, calculators, and other programs in the background.
2010 was a year of large-scale renovation. iPhone 4 presented a radical new design, but with preservation of distinctive features. Glass on both sides and metal frame. The new Retina display, A4 chip, 5 MP main camera and camera for video calls.
But the smartphone is lost, the network cost is wrong to take it in your hand, for which Apple later paid, paying compensation, giving free cases. But remember that this can not be done.
The new iOS — Yes, the presentation system we have grown accustomed now to all the name, a number of changes and improvements.
In October 2011, correcting important issues of the previous generation, Apple is releasing the iPhone 4S with iOS 5 and the next day after the presentation of the dying company founder Steve jobs.
The main feature of the model is the virtual assistant Siri. He helped to interact with the device and at the time had a fairly good functionality. The network problem also has been fixed. From that moment he began to produce models to 64GB.
The first iPhone presented without Steve — the iPhone 5. He became more. The display grew to 4″, which was the major innovation for all generations released to him. Another equally important innovation was the replacement of the old and familiar port 30-pin to Lightning. He was smaller than the previous connector and connect either side than not could boast of other standards, like Apple and competitors with microUSB.

Case not everyone liked it, but quickly got used to it. There was a modification with 128 GB of memory, a new processor Apple A8 and the coprocessor M8.
