The very first iPhone from Apple was launched way back in 2007 (can you believe it has been that long already?), and changed how we look at mobile communications forever. This smartphone has been getting better and better ever since, with new technology and better functionality upgrades on every release.
In recent years, the latest versions of the iPhone have shifted to much larger screens. The first model launched with a 3.5 inch screen, whilst now the smallest screen available is on the iPhone SE at 4.7 inches, and the iPhone 11 Pro can be bought with a 5.8 or 6.5 inch Super Retina XDR display, a far cry from the original iPhone.
Much like the display, the camera of the iPhone range has seen dramatic shifts in terms of quality and features. The very first model launched with a 2 MP rear camera, before the iPhone 4 changed the world with the first ever front-facing camera, throwing selfies into the mainstream and launching Facetime video chat.
The latest models now feature not just one, but three different 12 MP cameras; one telephoto, one wide and one ultra wide. On top of this, they also have capability to record in 4K at 60 fps, meaning regular people can use apps like Instagram, TikTok and Snapchat to document their lives in ultra-high quality with near professional level photos.
The original iPhone launched with a maximum capacity of 16 GB of storage space. Apple quickly realised that, with the launch of the App Store and the 3G era, they needed a whole lot more storage, so a 32 GB iPhone 3G was released.
Today's new and vastly improved models come with a minimum of 64 GB and can reach up to 512 GB, which should be enough storage space for most people. With their ability to sync up with your favourite wearable tech such as the Apple Watch, the sky really is the limit!
