In January 2007, Apple co-founder and CEO announced that the company would launch a revolutionary mobile phone. At the time, he described the device as a touchscreen iPod. On June 29 of the same year, the marketing guru introduced the first iPhone. At the launch event, he said Today Apple will reinvent the phone”. However, this genius visionary had not been able to capture the impact that his company’s device globally. Today, the Apple iPhone officially turns 15 and it has been and remains a decent device. Apple has not lost touch for the past 15 years. Even when it does not really bring any innovation, it has a way of convincing the market to pay more for its devices.

Apple iPhone at 15

The iPhone is extinguishing 15 candles today and some say that this device is the crown of modern human civilization. The development of smartphones surpasses other technological trends like electric cars and others. In fact, smartphones touch more lives and reach more people than more advanced technologies like aeroplane technology.

Concerning the impact of the iPhone, a survey will most likely reveal mixed reactions depending on the people responding to the survey. However, one thing is certain, the iPhone has been a source of inspiration to many brands. The company is also radically changing the way billions of people communicate, entertain, work and socialize.

The iPhone has been a technological bulldozer. However, in recent times, it appears that the company has been technologically slow. Nevertheless, Apple has one thing it can boast of, it does things better. So even when the company is five years late, its users console themselves with the fact that when it eventually releases the feature, it will be better than what the market already has. In all, the Apple iPhone is 15 years today and for smartphone enthusiasts, it is worth celebrating.

Which 34 Models Have You Used?

Yesterday, 15 years ago, the first generation iPhone was officially launched in San Francisco. This device comes with a 3.5-inch TFT screen and supports a resolution of 480 x 320. Interestingly, the original iPhone does not come with a front-facing camera. Although these configurations are very “crotchless” now, the original iPhone at that time can be said to be an epoch-making work.

In just 74 days, the original iPhone sold more than 1 million units. Today, 15 years later, the shape of the iPhone has also undergone tremendous changes. From iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4… iPhone 6… iPhone X to today’s iPhone 13 Pro Max, in 15 years, Apple has used 34 models to secure its position as the top smartphone.

Today, the topic of #iPhone 15th Anniversary# has also aroused heated discussions. Many people are posting the first iPhone model that they had to purchase.

Some netizens said: “The first one was the iPhone 6, which I bought after the college entrance examination. You can’t afford an Apple iPhone until you start working. How could you have spent so much money on a mobile phone before?”

Another said “My sister had to work super hard to buy the iPhone 5. I also did the same, it’s my first iPhone and I never forget it”

iPhone 14 will be more expensive

The latest iPhone in the market is the iPhone 13 series. However, the company will release the iPhone 14 later this year. There are reports that due to the increase in the price of raw materials as well as labour costs, the iPhone 14 will be more expensive. In addition, the company will also bring some upgrades for this device.

According to supply chain sources, the starting price of the iPhone 14 in China will rise to 6,199 yuan ($926). In addition, the 1TB version of the iPhone 14 Pro Max will reach more than 14,000 yuan ($2092). So, the question is, which of the 34 iPhones did you use?

Steve Jobs did something magnificent 15 years ago

Fifteen years ago, the late Steve Jobs showed the world a revolutionary device that changed the company and the world: the iPhone. “An iPod, a telephone, an Internet mobile communication device… these are not three separate devices,” Jobs added: “Today, Apple will reinvent the mobile phone.”

The original iPhone was announced by Steve Jobs on January 9, 2007, and went on sale on June 29, 2007. Since its debut, the iPhone has forever changed the world and the mobile technology industry. Just 74 days after its launch on June 29, 2007, Apple announced that it had sold more than 1 million iPhones, with the original iPhone retailing for $499. Fifteen years later, the iPhone has completely evolved, with powerful computing power, a great camera, and an iOS and App Store that didn’t exist when the first iPhone was released in 2007.

However, some people believe that after Steve Jobs, innovation at Apple seems to be slowing down. This is not entirely the case because, like most technologies, smartphone tech is slowly hitting its peak. We are at a point where there are not many effective upgrades that can be done quickly. At the moment, any upgrade will require years of research and development. Thus, we do not expect to see the “every year” upgrade as it used to be. What is happening in the Android camp is technology stacking some of which the devices don’t need.

Because Android has several brands, they do not really care if the technology is mature enough. They release it to the market and upgrade it in subsequent models if need be. This is what Apple will not do. For Apple, if the technology is not ready, it is not and fan boys will have to wait.
