11 Sep Evolution Of The iPhone
As Apple gear up for their September 12 press release, which will almost certainly reveal the new iPhone, we thought we would reflect on the evolution of the iPhone.
This animated history of the iPhone created by CNET, starts right from the beginning and gives some context in relation to the evolving technology used in the development of the iPhones.
Of course, the video missed the iPhone 4S (which many thought would be the iPhone 5). The iPhone 4S was released October 4 2011 and though it brought with it a much better user experience with the introduction of Siri, a new camera and faster processing speeds, many were disappointed with the lack of radical change in design. Despite this, the iPhone 4S sold more than 4 million iPhones in the first three days following the release.
So, will history repeat itself or will Apple bring out something that really sets the iPhone 5 apart from its predecessors?
While rumours have been plentiful, concrete conjectures are few and far in between. However, if the rumours become fact we could see a fairly different design for the iPhone 5.
Even though many of the rumours will be laid to rest in Apple’s press event tomorrow, here is what is expected.
