Now that we are the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, it’s hard to believe how far we have come along with these phones. Did you know that the original iPhone, also known as iPhone 1, iPhone 1G, and iPhone 2) came out in January 2007, after years and years of speculations? Hard to believe it was about 8 years ago.
Almost a year later, Apple introduced the iPhone 3G and the original iPhone is now considered to be obsolete. Rightfully so as we are well into the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
As Apple launches have come to be known for, the original iPhone also caused a lot of media attention; customers were lined up outside Apple and AT&T stores to get their hands on the precious device.
It’s funny to think that Steve Jobs imagined a device that would become this popular all over the world. Also extremely hard to process the fact that Jobs has passed away, yet had such a meaningful (and technological) impact… globally. In fact, Jobs remained true to this word when he introduced his world changing, innovative device: “I have been looking forward to this for two and a half years. Today, Apple is going to reinvent the phone.”
Boy, he knew that, now, didn’t he?
Just like that, the cell phone industry changed. Now, people had access to a mini “laptop” with the phone in their hands. Think about it: the ability to connect to the internet, browse, text message, along with tons of other applications (creating a multi-million dollar application business along the way!), games, and the ability to make video calls or regular calls.
The iPhone became infamous. While Android is loved as well, iPhone supporters are extremely loyal to the brand. Want an iPhone charger or headphones? How about a dock? There are tons of accessories that make the iPhone a lot of fun to use. Heck, some people don’t own tvs nor laptops, so they watch Netflix on their iPhones. iTunes is also on iPhone and almost everyone with one uses it for exercising purposes.
There are some phenomenal video editing and image editing apps as well as the American Sign Language app. How many worlds have been connected due to the creativity of Steve Jobs? Just the vision of man.
The man is so inspiring that Banksy recently created an art piece based on him. Of course, a movie was filmed and released shortly after his death and did well. To learn more about Jobs or Apple, all you need to do is do a simple search on the internet.
