What kind of phone do you have, nestled there in your pocket? Chances are that it's an iPhone. In fact, in Australia, Apple owns around a 40% share of the smartphone market. That is a lot of iPhones. (update in March 2018 ZDNet reported: Apple has taken a 56.2 percent share of the Australian smartphone market, compared to 43.8 percent for Android, according to the research firm IDC.)
iPhones are what made Steve Jobs a household name and are responsible for many millions of hours wasted on Candy Crush.
The way that Apple managed to revolutionise the smartphone industry, through using clear, simple and easy interfaces is one of the biggest stories of the underdog rising up against its competitors.
Way back in the mid 2000's Apple was busy making iPods and the best selling phones were Nokias (like the 6270) and Motorolas (like the KRZR K1) and PCs were still king with Microsoft top of the pack. Apple were known for making fast hardware, an alternative computer for those people who didn't like Windows, and clever MP3 players. That was all before one event that managed to change the computing landscape forever: the birth of the iPhone.
In January of 2007, Jobs announced that Apple were to debut a phone. They were planning to release the iPhone: a phone that was built entirely from Apple software and hardware from the ground up. The iPhone was released in June of that year.
Sold originally only through AT&T in the US, people scrambled to get their hands on one. When they were released people lined up waiting outside stores. Customers from other service providers' jail broke iPhones just so they could own one.
From that first release, Apple have come a long way. A year after the initial release of the iPhone they put out the iPhone 3G, which incorporated new technologies such as 3G and GPS. A year later came the 3GS: an updated version of the 3G with an S for Speed. It had higher performance, camera resolution and voice control.
Australia did not officially get the original iPhone. The first model for Australian release was the iPhone 3G.
Another year later, 2010, signalled the release of the iPhone 4 which, at the time, was the thinnest smartphone available. With Retina Display for high definition, a front facing camera (fantastic for selfies) and an improved multitasking chip, it was everything customers had hoped for and more.
Before the iPhone release this year however, Apple had something new to market: the iPad. Intended for heavier use than an iPhone but for those that didn't need (or want) a computer, the iPad - a tablet computer without an external keyboard. Sales were astronomical. In the early 2000's, Microsoft had tried - and failed - to get a foothold with Microsoft Tablet PCs. It was a new birth for tablet computers.
The following year came the next iPhone - the 4S - with an S for Siri. This iPhone 4 upgrade also had a more capable camera, faster processing speeds and introduced iCloud. The iPad 2 was also released.
Then the next year, 2012, came the iPhone 5. It was thinner and lighter than its predecessors and had a significant increase in screen size. It also introduced the new Lightning dock connector. As before, there were new iPad versions out too - the iPad 3, the iPad 4, and a new kid on the block, the iPad mini, a smaller version of the iPad.
The next year saw the release of two upgrades to the iPhone 5: the iPhone 5c, which used polycarbonate as its casing and came in a wide variety of colours, and the iPhone 5S which had a new home button, fingerprint recognition, an updated camera and a heavily beefed up hardware set with a 64 bit chip and the M7 processor. The iPad Mini 2 came out along with a new version of the iPad - the iPad Air, neatly tying in with Apple computer sales of the Macbook Air.
Another year on saw the release of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. These iPhones were larger still than the iPhones before them - especially the iPhone 6 Plus which is a phablet size. The updates included adding an NFC payment system, a faster processor again and better wifi connectivity. iPad Mini 2 and iPad Air 2 also saw releases. 2014 also saw Apple's latest tech offering release - the iWatch - the much hyped wearable tech to help you use your iPhone more conveniently.
Every yearly release there were people queued up to get their hands on the latest Apple product, the latest iPhone. They've incited phone-induced hysteria. The queue for an iPhone 6 release down in the Meatpacking District in NYC stretched for 4 blocks. People camp out for days just to be the first in line. One man spent 10 days outside an Apple store in London just to be the first in the door. It creates a buyer rush unlike no other we see. This stopped at the release of the iPhone 6S release as Apple started to take preorders and also allowed its Telco partners to take preorders, after it has announced that year's lineup.
The iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus were released on September 25, 2015. This continued Apple's pattern of a major release then a minor update the year after.
The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were the tenth generation of the iPhone. These models were announced on September 7, 2016, by Apple at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. The announcement was made by Apple CEO Tim Cook. These models were released on September 16, 2016.
The following year Apple skipped the iPhone 7s model that many people were expecting and went straight to the iPhone 8. There was a plus sized version of this model that was named as expected the iPhone 8 Plus. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were released on September 22, 2017. On April 9, 2018, Apple also released an iPhone 8 with a red color finish and a black front, in support of their partnership with Product Red and their AIDS fundraising campaign. 2017 also saw the iPhone X which was unveiled in September 2017 and released on November 3 2017.
The 2018 iPhones were announced by Phil Schiller on September 12, 2018, at the Steve Jobs Theater in the Apple Park campus. The models were the iPhone XR, the higher-priced iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max. Pre orders commenced on October 19, 2018. The official release on October 26, 2018.
The 2019 iPhones were announced by Apple at its fall 2019 event. These phones, the iPhone 11, the iPhone 11 Pro, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max were released on September 20th. Pre orders for the 2019 iPhones began on September 13th 2019.
2020 saw a delayed release of the that years' models. But the extra wait was well worth it. This iPhone 12 range includes the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max. These were the first iPhones to operate on 5G. The range also saw Magsafe introduced. The iPhone SE 2020 was also released earlier in 2020 (this is not a 5G handset).
At the end of Jobs' speech way back in that January of 2007 he gave this pearl:
"From this day forward we're going to be known as Apple, Inc. We've dropped the computer from our name." And then he quoted ice skating legend Wayne Gretzky. "'I skate to where the puck is going to be, not to where it's been.' That's what we try to do at Apple."
Jobs knew way back then in 2007, that computers were going to be old news. The spooky thing is that it has come true: iOS sales this year are predicted to overtake PC sales. Even if a person does not own a computer, they'll still get an iPhone and/or an iPad. For those that don't work when they're at home or do studies, passion projects or gaming that requires a PC, there is now little reason to own a PC.
Apple sold almost 75 million iPhones worldwide in the final quarter of 2014, for the first time overtaking Samsung in smartphone sales. This is no mean feat, considering iPhones are all costly devices, whereas Samsung produce lower-end smartphones also.
Now, the iPhone is a staple for everyone from high school students through to business people. There are technicians out in the field using custom built iPhone apps to run diagnostics on their equipment. It is expected in some schools that children will need to purchase an iPad to complete all of their lesson plans.
Not only has iOS (that's the operating system that runs on all iPhones and iPads) become ubiquitous with personal computing since its release, with the device also comes a slew of possible accessories that are needed to pair with the device to get the most out of the technology. Read more about the Apple range of products.
A necessary accessory - the iPhone or iPad case. There are a multitude of case options to choose from, depending on which is deemed more important; style, shock proof abilities or feel. The ten different types of cases are as follows: Skins - with a thin rubber or silicone layer that is fitted around the body. It provides minimal improved shock protection while keeping the device slim. Shells- made out of plastic or metal and generally only provides scratch protection with a cool design. Wallets - for iPhones, with a flip open style that carries credit cards too, handy for those that don't want to carry a wallet and a phone.
From there your iPhone or iPad may also need a screen protector to protect it from scratches. These come in either a plastic type material for general scratch protection, or a tempered glass design, that makes the screen extremely resistant to scratches.
There are also many different types of iPhone chargers that can be purchased for the device. Ensure checking whether the charging port is a Lightning model or the previous 30 pin model. For the different types of chargers - there are MFI wall chargers, for home and office use, there are car chargers, for a quick charge in the car, there are iPhone car cradles and antennas, that also provide a great hands free option for GPS directions and there are powerbanks, for charging on the go. Have a look at the amplitude out to ascertain how fast the device will charge - higher amplitude generally means a faster charge.
For hands free operation of the iPhone, since speakerphone is not always the best or most convenient option, there is the option of iPhone Bluetooth car kits to use in combination with the phone. It uses near field communications technology so there is no need for any wires, unlike a traditional headset.
And last but not least, the iPhone Bluetooth speakers. After all, with a massive iTunes collection and Spotify account it'd be silly to just use the iPhone speaker. Speakers come in a range of different types and qualities so choosing carefully is needed if the music is going to be up loud.
