Apple Inc. created something of a revolution in 2007 when it introduced the original iPhone in 2007! Technology had the world in its firm grip like never before and every bit of information about the devices was absorbed by a global audience hungry for more. In an instant, the iPhone nearly made all other smartphones obsolete and had competitors scrambling to introduce innovations in their own products. The prices of the conventional mobile devices of the iPhone 3G and 3GS dropped and the iPhone 4 and 4s brought us Retina and Siri. Later, Apple brought a faster and taller smartphone, the iPhone 5; The iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s literally put the future in our hands! The iPhone 6 series was equipped with new hardware and introduced a newer and more sensitive way of interacting with the smartphone with the 3D touch.
Apple’s goal of obtaining a monopoly on the mobile phone and smartphone market has been achieved, albeit with some pitfalls and some corporate battles involving patents and designs with competitors. But the sheer symmetry and functionality of an iPhone is unmatched and the millions of happy users testify to this indisputable fact. With each new design and improved versatility and performance, Apple is getting more people to buy phones faster. An iPhone as the first mobile instrument is a proud achievement for thousands of people around the world.
In recent news, Apple is unlikely to make any major changes to the design of its next iPhone product. The corporate announcement said the tech giant is breaking the pattern of reviewing iPhone design every two years; Only subtle changes are expected for the fall release of its latest model. Confirmed analyst reports say the new phones will keep the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays, a throwback to the larger-screen models unveiled by the company in 2014.
IPhones have not been without their controversies and downsides. The 16GB capacity of iPhones has received a lot of criticism from users who feel that it is nothing short of a scam, as almost 7GB is used for software and applications. Not allowing users to remove custom apps didn’t help Apple’s image either. It appears that the company has noticed feedback from loyal customers and is abandoning smaller capacity devices; the next iPhone 7 lineup will start with 32GB storage tiers.
Storage has been the biggest issue for customers and Apple doesn’t make sure this issue is addressed as soon as possible. In all likelihood, Apple iOS software is very likely to exceed 16GB, and therefore producing phones with this capability will not enhance Apple’s corporate image and branding. In all likelihood, the 64GB option will also be dropped and future devices may offer 128GB or even 256GB. This fact makes perfect sense in light of the fact that the company is considering purchasing high-capacity flash for its iPad Pro.
