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.

When does Apple release new iPhones?

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.

Who invented the Apple iPhone?

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.

Where are Apple iPhones made?

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.

Apple iPhone 6 (8th Gen) - 2014

The Apple iPhone 6 was considered the most radically different model since the design of the iPhone 4. The iPhone 6 was taller, wider, thinner, and rounded at the corners. The change in dimensions was due to a desire to increase screen size while maintaining the same aspect ratio and pixel density. Another external change was the relocation of the power button from the top of the phone to the right side of the case. A software addition included a double tap gesture, making the top half of the larger screen accessible for those with smaller hands.

The Apple iPhone 6 (8th Gen) has height of 5.44” (138.1 mm), width of 2.64” (67 mm), depth of .27” (6.9 mm), and weighs 4.6 oz (129 g). The screen size is 4.7” (120 mm) diagonal with a resolution of 1334 x 750 px at 326 ppi.

Apple iPhone 5C (6th Gen) - 2013

The Apple iPhone 5C, a variant of the iPhone 5, was released in September of 2013. It replaced the aluminum shell of the previous model with a hard-coated, polycarbonate one. This material change made the iPhone 5C both thicker and heavier, which ultimately led to it being received and praised as the most durable iPhone to date. Other visual updates included its availability in a variety of colors (blue, green, yellow, pink, white, etc.). Instead of following the usual routine of lowering the price of the previous model, Apple decided to sell this newest version at a lesser price.

The Apple iPhone 5C (6th Gen) has height of 4.9” (124.4 mm), width of 2.33” (59.2 mm), depth of .35” (9 mm), and weighs 4.66 oz (132 g). The screen size is 4” (100 mm) diagonal with a resolution of 1136 x 640 px at 326 ppi.
