iPhone 7The next iPhone 7 from Apple – Steve Jobs announced the iPhone, the first Apple-branded consumer device to run on OS X, on January 9, 2007 at the Macworld convention. This marked Apple’s entry into the cellular phone marketplace. Jobs described the iPhone as a wide-screen iPod with hand controls, a revolutionary mobile phone, and a breakthrough Internet communications device. The history of the iPhone is started with a direction from Steve Jobs to Apple’s engineers. He asked them to investigate touchscreens and a tablet computer. The company had the Newton MessagePad before, which had some similarities with the iPhone.

iPhone 7 story

Short story before the iPhone 7 presence. On June 29, 2007, the first iPhone was released. The iPhone had a touch-based user interface with a single button and was controlled using a variety of one- and two-finger gestured. It had 3.5-inch multi-touch display at 320×480 and 163ppi, a custom version of Safari, iPod interface with CoverFlow, integrated acess to YouTube and Google Maps, as well as a standard set of cellphone apps, such as a calendar, an address book and a calculator. It also had a quad-band 2G EDGE data radio, 802.11b.g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0 EDR, and a 2 megapixel camera. The first iPhone was powered by an ARM-based Samsung 1176JZ(F)-S processor and PowerVR MBX Lite 3D graphics, with an 1400 mAh battery, and had 128MB of RAM on board, as well as 4GB or 8GB of NAND Flash storage. The iPhone could also synced to iTunes. The iPhone was available exclusively with AT&T voice/data plans. Consumers were unable to use any other carrier without heavily modifying their device. This caused some controversy. The iPhone also included several sensors like an accelerometer, a proximity sensor that could automatically turn off the screen when close to the face, and an ambient light sensor to automatically adjust brightness.
