IPhone: Revolution phone

Since the advent of cell phones as we know them, the way we use them has not changed much. Many of the features of the phone were very well known. The method of calling is like landlines. There are buttons on the screen that we press numbers and ask the person we want. Text messages were an extension of ideas carried by the resonator (pager), while memorizing numbers and information are things we knew from personal organizations before that. Among the first major transfers of mobile phones were (Bluetooth) technology, media playback, and photography at the end of the 1990s. But the big revolution in the phone industry came with the launch of the iPhone, when Apple changed the way we use phones forever.

A historical look and the beginning of the iPhone
Some believe that the iPhone was Apple's first attempt in the mobile world, but that is not entirely true. Apple began working on its own phone since 2004, when a team of 1,000 employees was created to work on a highly classified project under the nickname “Project Purple”. Initially, Apple provided a phone in cooperation with Motorola, and it was the Motorola ROKR E1 phone, and it is considered the first phone to provide iTunes service within its contents, but it failed commercially, which kept Apple away from this trend. Apple was working on the iPhone in secret cooperation with AT&T, which was then known as Cingular Wireless. The agreement provided for Apple to obtain a percentage of the subscription fees in the network, in exchange for AT&T obtaining exclusive rights to sell the phone for a period of 4 years. The project started at a cost of $ 150 million and runs for 30 months. Cingular saw that it gives Apple confidence to develop the phone entirely internally rather than collaborating with external phone companies.

The first iPhone that we know very well was unveiled on January 9, 2007 by Steve Jobs, who was on the podium at the Apple conference at the Macworld 2007 in San Francisco. The initial release of the device was in America only, as large numbers lined up in front of stores to get it and it had huge media coverage at the time. The phone was released in America in June 2007, then was released in Britain, France and Germany 5 months later, and finally in Ireland and Austria in 2008. The following two devices are iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS obtained official global versions in a greater number of countries, and Including the official versions in the Arab countries as well.

Apple has started a new revolution in the world of phones, and the focus is now on powerful smartphones that are able to offer advanced functions. The original iPhone was able to achieve sales of 6.1 million units with the first 15 months of its release. By the end of the 2010 fiscal year, Apple had sold nearly 73.5 million iPhones globally. In terms of the percentage, Apple only had 4% of the market, but on paper the company attracts nearly 50% of the income of the global phone market, due to the high price of the iPhone being an advanced phone and not as economical as the rest of the competitors ’phones. Apple later toppled a lot of giants in the phone market, including RIM, or as Blackberry is now known, which lost sales and high popularity in America with time. Globally, Apple managed to overthrow the Nokia giant in 2011, in the annual income from mobile phone sales. IPhone has completed its journey to become one of the global leaders in the phone market and a permanent competitor for the first positions, despite the great challenges that have emerged later from the Android system and Galaxy devices from Samsung.
