iPhone 1 was a revolution which set out with a 3.5 inch screen and started the journey of iPhones. The iPhone has brought about the introduction of smartphones, as the first phone that possessed a touchscreen and access to worldwideweb. The pixel density of the display was 320 x 480 which was regarded as the best option at the time. This phone was also equipped with a storage capacity of 8GB and 2-megapixel camera. This was back ten years ago, in the year 2007, when such technology was just a dream.

Steve Jobs, in California’s Macworld Conference & Expo, introduced the phone as the three devices combined: a breakthrough internet communicator, a revolutionary mobile phone and an iPod with touch controls. This phone is considered to be revolutionary as it changed the way people interacted with their phones. The mobile computing platform that was created by iOS was like no other. The smartphone revolution leader is the iPhone.

The successor of iPhone 1 was launched after a year of its introduction. The next phone was the second generation, and was named 3G for marking the new 3g feature that was offered with it. This phone offered much faster connectivity, GPS and 3G data service. It was also the onset of the App Store that is seen today.

In 2011, the iPhone 4s was launched and Siri came to life along with it. The exclusive intelligent personal assistant came to life with the Iphone 4s and was the first time any user had experienced such Artificial Intelligence. It was the forerunner of the Artificial Intelligence war involving Apple, Microsoft, Google and Amazon that is seen today.
