Because if it’s not an iPhone, it’s not an iPhone
30 Jan 2016
That’s a statement most Apple users often make, and there’s a hint of pride that comes along with it. Why not? When Apple strives to innovate with every new addition to its phone collection and give a reason to their loyal customers to be proud of. This tiny device (maybe not so tiny anymore) can do so much more. It is extremely user-friendly and users absolutely love them. A look at the Apple iPhone Prices will tell you this phone is not for just anyone.
Let’s look at the evolution of the iPhone and what it is that we are looking forward to with a new launch.

Apple launched its 3G compatible phone in the year 2008. It came with a built-in GPS and offered more storage space. The new iPhone was cheaper than the earlier one. The iPhone 3G was priced at $199 for the 8 GB model. Around June 2009, Apple came out with the iPhone 3GS. With similar features to its predecessor, this one was said to be twice as fast!

With the iPhone 5 Apple increased its screen size from the original 3.5 to 4-inches. It was launched in the year 2012. This one was available in 8, 16 and 64 GB versions. The new 5C was supposed to be the less expensive iPhone. For the first time, Apple launched phones in different colours like blue and yellow too. The iPhone 5S was faster with a 64-bit A7 SoC. It also came with a fingerprint scanner to unlock the phone.

The 6S versions came with some really revolutionary upgrades, including a 3D touch technology and a 12-megapixel camera that could now shoot 4K videos. The 6S versions run on an A9 chip making them function even faster.
