No other product has brought Apple so much success as the iPhone. Thanks to the smartphones, “Apple” brand has become the most recognizable in the world. But creating such a product cost the company a serious effort. The first version of the iPhone was developed in complete chaos. In Cupertino do not have the necessary staff, equipment and, most importantly, experience in the development and production of smartphones. The creation of a fundamentally new device in such conditions took 2.5 years and $ 150 million. However, the game was worth the candle.
Apple introduced the original smartphone at MacWorld in 2007. He had an aluminum rear panel and a small plastic cover at the bottom of the body closed GSM antenna receiver and wifi/Bluetooth. Novelty immediately attracted the interest of the public: after the start of sales were sold out 700,000 units. Metal body, no physical keyboard or stylus, control using your fingers. It all seems so commonplace today, but 9 years ago it was a real breakthrough.
Apple managed to unite your smartphone out of your phone, music player and PDA. The device had a 3.5-inch touch screen with a resolution of 480 x 320 pixels (165 ppi), CPU ARM 11 412 MHz, 256 GB of RAM and 2-megapixel camera. As the first version of the operating system used in iPhone OS.
Looking back, it seems amazing how far the iPhone from simple devices with a half a dozen applications to advanced computing devices, all of which are unknown until the end of the ordinary user.
Presented in September this year, the iPhone 7 is the pinnacle of Apple smartphones. The device is equipped with a 4-core processor Apple Fusion A10 with a frequency of 2.4 GHz, which is 120 times more productive than the first iPhone chip, 2 GB of RAM, 12-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization, a display with extended color gamut.
