The iPhone Revolution

January 18th, 2020 | Category: Technology

When the first iPhone came out on June 29, 2007, it didn’t have a keyboard, no copy and paste, had only limited e-mail options and cost $600 a piece. Since then, Apple has sold 217 million iPhones worldwide. The Apple culture is imbedded in our society and the younger generation can’t get enough of it.


The author of iDisorder: Understanding Our Obsession with Technology and Overcoming Its Hold on Us states that “The iPhone has changed everything about how we relate to technology”. He further states that 30 percent of people born after 1980 get anxious if they can’t check Facebook every few minutes. It has become an obsession.

The Cupertino, California based Apple’s revenue increased from $24 billion in 2007 to $108 billion in 2011. Telecommunication companies such as AT&T are also benefitted from the Apple success during this time period. The Apple’s App Store generates more jobs and handsome revenue to many app developers. The App Store currently offers over 650,000 apps that covers almost all aspect of our lives.

In the near future there will be more mobile phones than the world population. The iPhone will continue to enhance our lives and help the humanity during crisis such as natural disasters.
