Smart phones are a dime a dozen in today’s world. With so many brands and models to choose from, it can be expected that people will automatically just pick out the first one that comes their way, right? In truth, however, for the most discerning of customers, nothing beats having an iPhone around.
Designed by Apple, the iPhone was first introduced to the market in 2007. Its interface was similar to the earlier iPod touch. The main difference between the two, however, is the fact that iPhones cannot be used to make and accept calls as well as send and receive SMS. Both, however, have multi-touch screen as well as a virtual keyboard, something that is not so popular at that time. Aside from being able to connect to the Internet using Wi-Fi, the iPhone was also able to make use of mobile data in order for the user to be able to surf.
Since its introduction to the market in 2007, Apple has already produced seven models of iPhone, with the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c being the latest. The two came about a year after the relatively successful release into the market of the iPhone 5, which featured a number of improvement compared to its predecessor, the iPhone 4.
The iPhone 5 came with such features as a better iOS which allowed the owner to make use of the iPhone as a Wi-Fi hotspot. Since it also came with Siri, users can make use of their voice in order to create as well as send text messages. With the new iOS, this Smartphone was able to support Passbook, which is Apple’s way of helping the user store his or her tickets, boarding passes, store cards, and mobile payment codes. This iPhone model is also the first in the line-up to come with the Facebook platform already integrated with the system. It also allowed for limitation in ad tracking which the user himself can control.
Aside from the upgrade in the operating system, this model of the iPhone also makes use of an aluminum composite frame. With the redesign, this model was able to boast of being 18% thinner, 20% lighter, and 12% lower volume as compared to its predecessor.
With the introduction of iPhone 5 also came the introduction of the Apple A6 processor, replacing the previous A5 processor that the iPhone 4 series carried. It is said to allow the smartphone to run twice as fast as its predecessor and has double the power when it comes to graphics.
The introduction of the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c, sadly, also spelled the discontinuation of its predecessor owing to the fact that many people had a number of issues with the said unit, including the infamous maps, which had incorrect information; the appearance of a purple shade in photos, and the fact that the coating tends to chip easily. The two variants not only dealt with this concerns but also provided a way for clients to have a more affordable iPhone in the form of the iPhone 5c.
