Apple iPhones are a product line of smartphones built around a multi-touch user interface. Introduced in 2007 by Apple Inc, the iPhone has been through eleven generations of hardware model updates, along with twelve versions of the iOS operating system. The Apple iPhone is constantly one of the most widely used smartphones in the world and it was hailed as ‘revolutionary’ when it was released.
Apple typically releases new iPhones in early September every two years. New iPhones are made available to the public for purchase before the end of the month. The iPhones are introduced with a period of press and pre-order options. A new version of Apple’s iOS is also released at this time.
The Apple iPhone was invented by Steve Jobs and his team. The Apple designers that were important in the creation of the Apple iPhone were John Casey and Jonathan Ive. The first iPhone was announced on January 9, 2007 by Steve Jobs at the Macworld Convention and went on sale on June 29, 2007.
Apple iPhones aren’t made in one location specifically as Apple has manufacturers all around the world for different parts of the iPhone. For example, the camera, compass, and LCD screen come from Japan while the gyroscope is manufactured in Switzerland. The assembly of the iPhone takes place in Taiwan, and is done by the companies, Foxconn and Pegatron.
