It was on the 9th day of January 2007, that the late Apple founder and then CEO, Steve Jobs mounted the stage at the company’s Macworld event to announce a new giant that will change the course of mobile technology and start properly the history of smartphones.
According to him, he was going to reveal an iPod, a Phone, and an internet communicator – but people thought he was referring to three different devices not knowing all three will be packed into one small, well-designed smartphone that grew to be the most talked about piece of Tech today.
Since then, the company has produced, shipped and sold more than one billion iPhones around the world putting it in the category of the wealthiest tech companies in the world.
However, in recent years, the competition has been so intense, more and more companies that had been sleeping in the dark suddenly woke up and now fighting their way into the list of top smartphone brands, companies like Google, Samsung, Hawai, HTC has squeezed the popularity Apple enjoyed back then into a tiny box. In fact, in 2016, Apple experienced the first time the sales of iPhone dropped tremendously low and this gives them something to worry about.
Since January 9th 2007 till January 9th 2017, apple has launched 16 iPhones, all of which made the headlines and sold millions of units on its launch. With Apple, drastically redesigning the devices, altering and introducing Jaw dropping features with any new launch has always left their fans only anticipating and gasping for more.
With the iPhone being unveiled, this gave birth to the creation of App Store, which launched in 2008 and since then it has being the home and shop for some huge mobile apps and games businesses like the Uber, Angry birds etc.
