History and availability

Main article: History of iPhone See also: List of iOS devices

Development of what was to become the iPhone began in 2004, when Apple started to gather a team of 1000 employees to work on the highly confidential "Project Purple", including Jonathan Ive, the designer behind the iMac and iPod Apple CEO Steve Jobs steered the original focus away from a tablet, like the iPad, and towards a phone Apple created the device during a secretive collaboration with AT&T Mobility—Cingular Wireless at the time—at an estimated development cost of US$150 million over thirty months

Apple rejected the "design by committee" approach that had yielded the Motorola ROKR E1, a largely unsuccessful collaboration with Motorola Instead, Cingular gave Apple the liberty to develop the iPhone's hardware and software in-house and even paid Apple a fraction of its monthly service revenue until the iPhone 3G, in exchange for four years of exclusive US sales, until 2011

Jobs unveiled the iPhone to the public on January 9, 2007, at the Macworld 2007 convention at the Moscone Center in San Francisco The two initial models, a 4 GB model priced at US$499 and an 8 GB model at US$599 both requiring a 2-year contract, went on sale in the United States on June 29, 2007, at 6:00 pm local time, while hundreds of customers lined up outside the stores nationwide The passionate reaction to the launch of the iPhone resulted in sections of the media dubbing it the 'Jesus phone' Following this successful release in the US, the first generation iPhone was made available in the UK, France, and Germany in November 2007, and Ireland and Austria in the spring of 2008

Worldwide iPhone availability:   iPhone available since its original release   iPhone available since the release of iPhone 3G   Coming soon

On July 11, 2008, Apple released the iPhone 3G in twenty-two countries, including the original six Apple released the iPhone 3G in upwards of eighty countries and territories Apple announced the iPhone 3GS on June 8, 2009, along with plans to release it later in June, July, and August, starting with the US, Canada and major European countries on June 19 Many would-be users objected to the iPhone's cost, and 40% of users had household incomes over US$100,000

The back of the original first generation iPhone was made of aluminum with a black plastic accent The iPhone 3G and 3GS feature a full plastic back to increase the strength of the GSM signal The iPhone 3G was available in an 8 GB black model, or a black or white option for the 16 GB model The iPhone 3GS was available in both colors, regardless of storage capacity

The iPhone 4 has an aluminosilicate glass front and back with a stainless steel edge that serves as the antennas It was at first available in black; the white version was announced, but not released until April 2011, 10 months later

The iPhone has gained positive reviews from such critics as David Pogue and Walt Mossberg The iPhone attracts users of all ages, and besides consumer use, the iPhone has also been adopted for business purposes

Users of the iPhone 4 reported dropped/disconnected telephone calls when holding their phones in a certain way This became known as antennagate

On January 11, 2011, Verizon announced during a media event that it had reached an agreement with Apple and would begin selling a CDMA iPhone 4 Verizon said it would be available for pre-order on February 3, with a release set for February 10 In February 2011, the Verizon iPhone accounted for 45% of all iPhone ad impressions in the US on Millennial Media's mobile ad network

From 2007 to 2011, Apple spent $647 million on advertising for the iPhone in the US

On Tuesday, September 27, Apple sent invitations for a press event to be held October 4, 2011, at 10:00 am at the Cupertino Headquarters to announce details of the next generation iPhone, which turned out to be iPhone 4S Over 1 million 4S models were sold in the first 24 hours after its release in October 2011 Due to large volumes of the iPhone being manufactured and its high selling price, Apple became the largest mobile handset vendor in the world by revenue, in 2011, surpassing long-time leader Nokia American carrier C Spire Wireless announced that it would be carrying the iPhone 4S on October 19, 2011

In January 2012, Apple reported its best quarterly earnings ever, with 53% of its revenue coming from the sale of 37 million iPhones, at an average selling price of nearly $660 The average selling price has remained fairly constant for most of the phone's lifespan, hovering between $622 and $660 The production price of the iPhone 4S was estimated by IHS iSuppli, in October 2011, to be $188, $207 and $245, for the 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB models, respectively Labor costs are estimated at between $1250 and $30 per unit, with workers on the iPhone assembly line making $178 an hour

In February 2012, ComScore reported that 124% of US mobile subscribers used an iPhone Approximately 64 million iPhones are active in the US alone

On September 12, 2012, Apple announced the iPhone 5 It has a 4-inch display, up from its predecessors' 35-inch screen The device comes with the same 326 pixels per inch found in the iPhone 4 and 4S The iPhone 5 has the SoC A6 processor, the chip is 22% smaller than the iPhone 4S' A5 and is twice as fast, doubling the graphics performance of its predecessor The device is 18% thinner than the iPhone 4S, measuring 76 millimetres 03 in, and is 20% lighter at 112 grams 4 oz

On July 6, 2013, it was reported that Apple was in talks with Korean mobile carrier SK Telecom to release the next generation iPhone with LTE Advanced technology

On July 22, 2013, the company's suppliers said that Apple is testing out larger screens for the iPhone and iPad "Apple has asked for prototype smartphone screens larger than 4 inches and has also asked for screen designs for a new tablet device measuring slightly less than 13 inches diagonally, they said"

On September 10, 2013, Apple unveiled two new iPhone models during a highly anticipated press event in Cupertino The iPhone 5C, a mid-range-priced version of the handset that is designed to increase accessibility due to its price is available in five colors green, blue, yellow, pink, and white and is made of plastic The iPhone 5S comes in three colors black, white, and gold and the home button is replaced with a fingerprint scanner Touch ID Both phones shipped on September 20, 2013

On September 9, 2014, Apple revealed the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus at an event in Cupertino Both devices had a larger screen than their predecessor, at 47 and 55 inches respectively

In January 2015, "Apple stands on second slot ie only 31% in US market" Competing devices with Android operating system have a market share approximately 62% of the US, 827% of the Chinese market, and 733% of the European market countries such as the UK, France, Germany Spain and Italy

In 2016, Apple unveiled the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, which add water resistance, improved system and graphics performance, a new dual-camera setup on the Plus model, new color options, and remove the 35 mm headphone jack

Sales and profits

Apple sold 61 million first generation iPhone units over five quarters Sales in the fourth quarter of 2008, temporarily surpassed those of Research In Motion's RIM BlackBerry sales of 52 million units, which briefly made Apple the third largest mobile phone manufacturer by revenue, after Nokia and Samsung However, some of this income is deferred Recorded sales grew steadily thereafter, and by the end of fiscal year 2010, a total of 735 million iPhones were sold

By 2010, the iPhone had a market share of barely 4% of all cellphones, however Apple pulled in more than 50% of the total profit that global cellphone sales generate Apple sold 141 million iPhones in the third quarter of 2010, representing a 91% unit growth over the year-ago quarter, which was well ahead of IDC's latest published estimate of 64% growth for the global smartphone market in the September quarter Apple's sales surpassed that of Research in Motion's 121 million BlackBerry units sold in their most recent quarter ended August 2010 In the United States market alone for the third quarter of 2010, while there were 91 million Android-powered smartphones shipped for 436% of the market, Apple iOS was the number two phone operating system with 262% but the 55 million iPhones sold made it the most popular single device

On March 2, 2011, at the iPad 2 launch event, Apple announced that they had sold 100 million iPhones worldwide As a result of the success of the iPhone sales volume and high selling price, headlined by the iPhone 4S, Apple became the largest mobile handset vendor in the world by revenue in 2011, surpassing long-time leader Nokia While the Samsung Galaxy S II has proven more popular than the iPhone 4S in parts of Europe, the iPhone 4S is dominant in the United States

In January 2012, Apple reported its best quarterly earnings ever, with 53% of its revenue coming from the sale of 37 million iPhones, at an average selling price of nearly $660 The average selling price has remained fairly constant for most of the phone's lifespan, hovering between $622 and $660

For the eight largest phone manufacturers in Q1 2012, according to Horace Dediu at Asymco, Apple and Samsung combined to take 99% of industry profits HTC took the remaining 1%, while RIM, LG, Sony Ericsson, Motorola, and Nokia all suffered losses, with Apple earning 73 cents out of every dollar earned by the phone makers As the industry profits grew from $53 billion in the first quarter of 2010 to $144 billion in the first quarter of 2012 quadruple the profits in 2007, Apple had managed to increase its share of these profits This is due to increasing carrier subsidies and the high selling prices of the iPhone, which had a negative effect on the wireless carriers AT&T Mobility, Verizon, and Sprint who have seen their EBITDA service margins drop as they sold an increasing number of iPhones By the quarter ended March 31, 2012, Apple's sales from the iPhone alone at $227 billion exceeded the total of Microsoft from all of its businesses $174 billion

In the fourth quarter of 2012, the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S were the best-selling handsets with sales of 274 million 13% of smartphones worldwide and 174 million units, respectively, with the Samsung Galaxy S III in third with 154 million According to Strategy Analytics' data, this was "an impressive performance, given the iPhone portfolio’s premium pricing," adding that the Galaxy S III’s global popularity "appears to have peaked" the Galaxy S III was touted as an iPhone-killer by some in the press when it was released While Samsung has led in worldwide sales of smartphones, Apple's iPhone line has still managed to top Samsung's smartphone offerings in the United States, with 214% share and 378% in that market, respectively iOS grew 35% to a 378%, while Android slid 13% to fall to a 523% share

The continued top popularity of the iPhone despite growing Android competition was also attributed to Apple being able to deliver iOS updates over the air, while Android updates are frequently impeded by carrier testing requirements and hardware tailoring, forcing consumers to purchase a new Android smartphone to get the latest version of that OS However, by 2013, Apple's market share had fallen to 131%, due to the surging popularity of the Android offerings

Apple announced on September 1, 2013, that its iPhone trade-in program would be implemented at all of its 250 specialty stores in the US For the program to become available, customers must have a valid contract and must purchase a new phone, rather than simply receive credit to be used at a later date A significant part of the program's goal is to increase the number of customers who purchase iPhones at Apple stores rather than carrier stores

On September 20, 2013, the sales date of the iPhone 5S and 5C models, the longest ever queue was observed at the New York City flagship Apple store, in addition to prominent queues in San Francisco, US and Canada; however, locations throughout the world were identified for the anticipation of corresponding consumers Apple also increased production of the gold-colored iPhone 5S by an additional one-third due to the particularly strong demand that emerged Apple had decided to introduce a gold model after finding that gold was seen as a popular sign of a luxury product among Chinese customers

Apple released its opening weekend sales results for the 5C and 5S models, showing an all-time high for the product's sales figures, with 9 million handsets sold—the previous record was set in 2012, when 5 million handsets were sold during the opening weekend of the 5 model This was the first time that Apple has simultaneously launched two models and the inclusion of China in the list of markets contributed to the record sales result Apple also announced that, as of September 23, 2013, 200 million devices were running the iOS 7 update, making it the "fastest software upgrade in history"

An Apple Store located at the Christiana Mall in Newark, Delaware, US claimed the highest iPhones sales figures in November 2013 The store's high sales results are due to the absence of a sales tax in the state of Delaware

The finalization of a deal between Apple and China Mobile, the world's largest mobile network, was announced in late December 2013 The multi-year agreement provides iPhone access to over 760 million China Mobile subscribers

Apple Upgrade Program

The Apple Upgrade Program was designed for consumers to be able to purchase an iPhone 6s or 6s plus directly from Apple by paying monthly installments for 24 months The benefit of this program is that consumers can trade in their iPhone every 12 months for the latest iPhone models directly through Apple, without having to wait till their carrier contract ends Each iPhone bought under this program will include 2 years of Apple Care+ protection plan and will not be network locked, hence it can be used with any carrier

Although the program has benefits, there are downsides For instance, the plan does not include cell phone service Apple will only send the unlocked iPhone itself, so consumers will need to pay for their cell phone service separately In addition, it can be more costly to pay for the iPhone over 24 months, than paying up front


Before the release of the iPhone, handset manufacturers such as Nokia and Motorola were enjoying record sales of cell phones based more on fashion and brand rather than technological innovation The smartphone market, dominated at the time by BlackBerry OS and Windows Mobile devices, was a "staid, corporate-led smartphone paradigm" focused on enterprise needs Phones at the time were designed around carrier and business limits which were conservative with regards to bandwidth usage and battery life Phones were sold in a very large number of models, often segmented by marketing strategy, confusing customers and sapping engineering resources For example, phones marketed at business were often deliberately stripped of cameras or the ability to play music and games Apple's approach was to deliberately simplify its product line by offering just one model a year for all customers, while making it an expensive, high-end product

Apple's marketing, developing from the success of iPod campaigns, allowed the phone to become a mass-market product with many buyers on launch day Some market research has found that, unusually for a technology product, iPhone users are disproportionately female Ars Technica noted in 2012 that Apple had avoided 'patronizing' marketing to female customers, a practice used often to sell low-quality, high-priced products by many of its competitors

When then-CEO of Research in Motion Mike Lazaridis pried open an iPhone, his impression was of a Mac stuffed into a cellphone, as it used much more memory and processing power than the smartphones on the market at the time With its capacitive touchscreen and consumer-friendly design, the iPhone fundamentally changed the mobile industry, with Steve Jobs proclaiming in 2007, that the phone was not just a communication tool but a way of life

The dominant mobile operating systems at the time such as Symbian, BlackBerry OS, and Windows Mobile were not designed to handle additional tasks beyond communication and basic functions These operating systems never focused on applications and developers, and due to infighting among manufacturers as well as the complexity of developing on their low-memory hardware, they never developed a thriving ecosystem like Apple's App Store or Android's Google Play IPhone OS renamed iOS in 2010 was designed as a robust OS with capabilities such as multitasking and graphics in order to meet future consumer demands Many services were provided by mobile carries, who often extensively customized devices Meanwhile, Apple's decision to base its OS on OS X had the unexpected benefit of allowing OS X developers to rapidly expand into iOS development Rival manufacturers have been forced to spend more on software and development costs to catch up to the iPhone The iPhone's success has led to a decline in sales of high-end fashion phones and business-oriented smartphones such as Vertu and BlackBerry and respectively, as well as Nokia Nokia realised the limitations of its operating system Symbian and attempted to develop a more advanced system, Maemo, without success It ultimately agreed to a technology-sharing deal and then a takeover from Microsoft


Up to the iPhone 4, all iPhone models, as well as other iOS devices were manufactured exclusively by Foxconn, based in Taiwan In 2011, after Tim Cook became CEO of the company, Apple changed its outsourcing strategy, for the first time increasing its supply partners The iPhone 4s in 2012, was the first model which was manufactured simultaneously by two stand-alone companies; Foxconn as well as Pegatron, also based in Taiwan Although Foxconn is still responsible for the larger share of production, Pegatron's orders have been slowly increased, with the company being tasked with producing a part of the iPhone 5C line in 2013, and 30% of the iPhone 6 devices in 2014 The 6 Plus model is being produced solely by Foxconn


Screen and input

The touchscreen on the first five generations is a 9 cm 35 in liquid crystal display with scratch-resistant glass, while the one on the iPhone 5 is 4 inches The capacitive touchscreen is designed for a bare finger, or multiple fingers for multi-touch sensing The screens on the first three generations have a resolution of 320×480 HVGA at 163 ppi; those on the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S have a resolution of 640×960 at 326 ppi, and the iPhone 5, 640×1136 at 326 ppi All iPhones were and still are equipped with LCDs The initial models were using twisted-nematic TN LCDs Starting with iPhone 4, the technology was changed to in-plane switching IPS LCDs The iPhone 5 model's screen results in an aspect ratio of approximately 16:9

The touch and gesture features of the iPhone are based on technology originally developed by FingerWorks Most gloves and styli prevent the necessary electrical conductivity; although capacitive styli can be used with iPhone's finger-touch screen The iPhone 3GS and later also feature a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating

The top and side of an iPhone 5S, externally identical to the iPhone 5 From left to right, sides: wake/sleep button, silence switch, volume up, and volume down

The iPhone has a minimal hardware user interface, featuring five buttons The only physical menu button is situated directly below the display, and is called the "Home button" because it closes the active app and navigates to the home screen of the interface The home button is denoted not by a house, as on many other similar devices, but a rounded square, reminiscent of the shape of icons on the home screen However, the Home button on iPhones with Apple's fingerprint recognition feature Touch ID which use the Home button as the fingerprint sensor have no symbol

A multifunction sleep/wake button is located on the top of the device It serves as the unit's power button, and also controls phone calls When a call is received, pressing the sleep/wake button once silences the ringtone, and when pressed twice transfers the call to voicemail Situated on the left spine are the volume adjustment controls The iPhone 4 has two separate circular buttons to increase and decrease the volume; all earlier models house two switches under a single plastic panel, known as a rocker switch, which could reasonably be counted as either one or two buttons

Directly above the volume controls is a ring/silent switch that when engaged mutes telephone ringing, alert sounds from new & sent emails, text messages, and other push notifications, camera shutter sounds, Voice Memo sound effects, phone lock/unlock sounds, keyboard clicks, and spoken autocorrections This switch does not mute alarm sounds from the Clock application, and in some countries or regions it will not mute the camera shutter or Voice Memo sound effects All buttons except Home were made of plastic on the original first generation iPhone and metal on all later models The touchscreen furnishes the remainder of the user interface

A software update in January 2008 allowed the first-generation iPhone to use cell tower and Wi-Fi network locations trilateration, despite lacking GPS hardware Since the iPhone 3G generation, the iPhone employs A-GPS operated by the United States Since the iPhone 4S generation the device also supports the GLONASS global positioning system, which is operated by Russia

The iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, introduced in 2015, feature "force-touch" displays which allows the screen to recognise how hard it is being pressed An example of how this technology will be used is lightly pressing the screen to preview a photograph and pressing down to take it


Latest iPhone devices feature seven sensors, which are used to adjust the screen based on operating conditions, enable motion-controlled games, and location-based services

Proximity sensor

A proximity sensor deactivates the display and touchscreen when the device is brought near the face during a call This is done to save battery power and to prevent inadvertent inputs from the user's face and ears

Ambient light sensor

An ambient light sensor adjusts the display brightness which saves battery power and prevents the screen from being too bright or too dark


A 3-axis accelerometer senses the orientation of the phone and changes the screen accordingly, allowing the user to easily switch between portrait and landscape mode Photo browsing, web browsing, and music playing support both upright and left or right widescreen orientations Unlike the iPad, the iPhone does not rotate the screen when turned upside-down, with the Home button above the screen, unless the running program has been specifically designed to do so The 30 update added landscape support for still other applications, such as email, and introduced shaking the unit as a form of input The accelerometer can also be used to control third-party apps, notably games It is also used for fitness tracking purposes, primarily as a pedometer


A magnetometer is built-in since the iPhone 3GS generation, which is used to measure the strength and/or direction of the magnetic field in the vicinity of the device Sometimes certain devices or radio signals can interfere with the magnetometer requiring users to either move away from the interference or re-calibrate by moving the device in a figure 8 motion Since the iPhone 3GS, the iPhone also features a Compass app which was unique at time of release, showing a compass that points in the direction of the magnetic field

Gyroscopic sensor

Beginning with the iPhone 4 generation, Apple's smartphones also include a gyroscopic sensor, enhancing its perception of how it is moved


The iPhone contains a chip capable of receiving radio signals, but Apple has the FM radio feature switched off, citing lack of demand as users have switched to data-streaming apps

Fingerprint sensor

The iPhone 5S, 6, 6 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus, SE, 7, and 7 Plus feature Apple's fingerprint recognition sensor, which is located on the Home button

Audio and output

From left to right is the headphone jack, microphone, Lightning connector, and built-in speaker on the base of the iPhone 5S

On the bottom of the iPhone, there is a speaker to the left of the dock connector and a microphone to the right There is an additional loudspeaker above the screen that serves as an earpiece during phone calls The iPhone 4 includes an additional microphone at the top of the unit for noise cancellation, and switches the placement of the microphone and speaker on the base on the unit—the speaker is on the right Volume controls are located on the left side of all iPhone models and as a slider in the iPod application

The 35mm TRRS connector for the headphones is located on the top left corner of the device for the first five generations original through 4S, after which time it was moved to the bottom left corner The headphone socket on the 1st-generation iPhone is recessed into the casing, making it incompatible with most headsets without the use of an adapter Subsequent generations eliminated the problem by using a flush-mounted headphone socket Cars equipped with an auxiliary jack allow handsfree use of the iPhone while driving as a substitute for Bluetooth The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have no 35mm headphone jack, and instead headsets must connect to the iPhone by Bluetooth, use Apple's Lightning port which has replaced the 35mm headphone jack, or for traditional headsets use the Lightning to 35mm headphone jack adapter, which still plugs into the Lightning port

Apple's own headset has a multipurpose button near the microphone that can play or pause music, skip tracks, and answer or end phone calls without touching the iPhone Some third-party headsets designed for the iPhone also include the microphone and control button The current headsets also provide volume controls, which are only compatible with more recent models A fourth ring in the audio jack carries this extra information

The built-in Bluetooth 2x+EDR supports wireless earpieces and headphones, which requires the HSP profile Stereo audio was added in the 30 update for hardware that supports A2DP While non-sanctioned third-party solutions exist, the iPhone does not officially support the OBEX file transfer protocol The lack of these profiles prevents iPhone users from exchanging multimedia files, such as pictures, music and videos, with other Bluetooth-enabled cell phones

Composite or component video at up to 576i and stereo audio can be output from the dock connector using an adapter sold by Apple IPhone 4 also supports 1024×768 VGA output without audio, and HDMI output, with stereo audio, via dock adapters The iPhone did not support voice recording until the 30 software update


Replacing the battery requires disassembling the iPhone unit and exposing the internal hardware

The iPhone features an internal rechargeable lithium-ion battery Like an iPod, but unlike most other mobile phones at the time of its launch, the battery is not user-replaceable The iPhone can be charged when connected to a computer for syncing across the included USB to dock connector cable, similar to charging an iPod Alternatively, a USB to AC adapter or "wall charger," also included can be connected to the cable to charge directly from an AC outlet

Apple runs tests on preproduction units to determine battery life Apple's website says that the battery life "is designed to retain up to 80% of its original capacity after 400 full charge and discharge cycles", which is comparable to iPod batteries

The battery life of early models of the iPhone has been criticized by several technology journalists as insufficient and less than Apple's claims This is also reflected by a J D Power and Associates customer satisfaction survey, which gave the "battery aspects" of the iPhone 3G its lowest rating of 2 out of 5 stars

If the battery malfunctions or dies prematurely, the phone can be returned to Apple and replaced for free while still under warranty The warranty lasts one year from purchase and can be extended to two years with AppleCare The battery replacement service and its pricing was not made known to buyers until the day the product was launched; it is similar to how Apple and third parties replace batteries for iPods The Foundation for Taxpayer and Consumer Rights, a consumer advocate group, has sent a complaint to Apple and AT&T over the fee that consumers have to pay to have the battery replaced

Since July 2007, third-party battery replacement kits have been available at a much lower price than Apple's own battery replacement program These kits often include a small screwdriver and an instruction leaflet, but as with many newer iPod models the battery in the first generation iPhone has been soldered in Therefore, a soldering iron is required to install the new battery The iPhone 3G uses a different battery fitted with a connector that is easier to replace

A patent filed by the corporation, published in late July 2013, revealed the development of a new iPhone battery system that uses location data in combination with data on the user's habits to moderate the handsets power settings accordingly Apple is working towards a power management system that will provide features such as the ability to estimate the length of time a user will be away from a power source to modify energy usage and a detection function that adjusts the charging rate to best suit the type of power source that is being used

The iPhone 4 is the first generation to have two cameras The LED flash for the rear-facing camera top and the forward-facing camera bottom are available on the iPhone 4 and subsequent models


The 1st-generation iPhone and iPhone 3G have a fixed-focus 20-megapixel camera on the back for digital photos It has no optical zoom, flash or autofocus, and does not natively support video recording iPhone original & 3G can record video via a third-party app available on the App Store, and jailbreaking also allows users to do so IPhone OS 20 introduced geotagging for photos

The iPhone 3GS has a 32-megapixel camera with autofocus, auto white balance, and auto macro up to 10 cm Manufactured by OmniVision, the camera can also capture 640×480 VGA resolution video at 30 frames per second, although unlike higher-end CCD-based video cameras, it exhibits the rolling shutter effect The video can be cropped on the iPhone and directly uploaded to YouTube, MobileMe, or other services

The iPhone 4 introduced a 50-megapixel camera 2592×1936 pixels that can record video at 720p resolution, considered high-definition It also has a backside-illuminated sensor that can capture pictures in low light and an LED flash that can stay lit while recording video It is the first iPhone that can natively do high dynamic range photography The iPhone 4 also has a second camera on the front that can take VGA photos and record SD video Saved recordings may be synced to the host computer, attached to email, or where supported sent by MMS

The iPhone 4S' camera can shoot 8-MP stills and 1080p video, can be accessed directly from the lock screen, and can be triggered using the volume-up button as a shutter trigger The built-in gyroscope can stabilize the image while recording video

The iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S, running iOS 6 or later, can take panoramas using the built-in camera app, and the iPhone 5 can also take still photos while recording video

The camera on the iPhone 5 reportedly shows purple haze when the light source is just out of frame, although Consumer Reports said it "is no more prone to purple hazing on photos shot into a bright light source than its predecessor or than several Android phones with fine cameras"

On all five model generations, the phone can be configured to bring up the camera app by quickly pressing the home key twice On all iPhones running iOS 5, it can also be accessed from the lock screen directly

The iPhone 6S and 6S Plus are outfitted with 12 megapixel camera, with 4K HD video capability Just as well, the user may change the resolution between 4K and 1080p from settings

The iPhone 7 features Optical Image Stabilization on its rear camera, and the 7 Plus is the first iPhone to feature dual-lens camera both 12 MP, and they both have a 7 MP front-facing camera The second camera on the iPhone 7 Plus is a telephoto lens, which enables 2x optical zoom and up to 10x digital zoom The rear cameras on the 7 and 7 Plus are both f/18 aperture


The iPhone was initially released with two options for internal storage size: 4 GB or 8 GB On September 5, 2007, Apple discontinued the 4 GB models On February 5, 2008, Apple added a 16 GB model The iPhone 3G was available in 16 GB and 8 GB The iPhone 3GS came in 16 GB and 32 GB variants and remained available in 8 GB until September 2012, more than three years after its launch The iPhone 4 was available in 16 GB and 32 GB variants, as well as an 8 GB variant to be sold alongside the iPhone 4S at a reduced price point The iPhone 4S was available in three sizes: 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB The iPhone 5 and 5s were available in the same three sizes previously available to the iPhone 4S: 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB The lower-cost iPhone 5C model was initially available in 16 GB and 32 GB models; a 8 GB model was added later The iPhone 6 and 6S are available in three sizes: 16 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB The iPhone SE is available in 16 GB and 64 GB variants By the time the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus was released, Apple ditched the based model from 16 GB to 32 GB as the base storage Both 7 & 7 Plus has a configuration of 32, 128, & 256 GB storage option And Apple also doubled the storage on the iPhone 6s & 6s Plus in 2 configurations 32 GB & 128 GB

SIM card

An iPhone 5S with the SIM slot open The SIM ejector tool is still placed in the eject hole

GSM models of the iPhone use a SIM card to identify themselves to the GSM network The SIM sits in a tray, which is inserted into a slot at the top of the device The SIM tray can be ejected with a paper clip or the "SIM ejector tool" a simple piece of die-cut sheet metal included with the iPhone 3G and 3GS in the United States and with all models elsewhere in the world Some iPhone models shipped with a SIM ejector tool which was fabricated from an alloy dubbed "Liquidmetal" In most countries, the iPhone is usually sold with a SIM lock, which prevents the iPhone from being used on a different mobile network

The GSM iPhone 4 features a MicroSIM card that is located in a slot on the right side of the device

The CDMA model of the iPhone 4, just the same as any other CDMA-only cell phone, does not use a SIM card or have a SIM card slot

An iPhone 4S activated on a CDMA carrier, however, does have a SIM card slot but does not rely on a SIM card for activation on that CDMA network A CDMA-activated iPhone 4S usually has a carrier-approved roaming SIM preloaded in its SIM slot at the time of purchase that is used for roaming on certain carrier-approved international GSM networks only The SIM slot is locked to only use the roaming SIM card provided by the CDMA carrier
In the case of Verizon, for example, one can request that the SIM slot be unlocked for international use by calling their support number and requesting an international unlock if their account has been in good standing for the past 60 days This method only unlocks the iPhone 4S for use on international carriers An iPhone 4S that has been unlocked in this way will reject any non international SIM cards AT&T Mobility or T-Mobile USA, for example

The iPhone 5 and later iPhones use the nano-SIM, in order to save more space for internal components

Liquid contact indicators

All iPhones as well as many other devices by Apple have a small disc at the bottom of the headphone jack that changes from white to red on contact with water; the iPhone 3G and later models also have a similar indicator at the bottom of the dock connector Because Apple warranties do not cover water damage, employees examine the indicators before approving warranty repair or replacement

The iPhone's indicators are more exposed than those in some mobile phones from other manufacturers, which carry them in a more protected location, such as beneath the battery behind a battery cover The iPhone's can be triggered during routine use, by an owner's sweat, steam in a bathroom, and other light environmental moisture Criticism led Apple to change its water damage policy for iPhones and similar products, allowing customers to request further internal inspection of the phone to verify if internal liquid damage sensors were triggered

Included items

The contents of the box of an iPhone 4 From left to right: iPhone 4 in plastic holder, written documentation, and top to bottom headset, USB cable, wall charger

All iPhone models include written documentation, and a dock connector to USB cable The first generation and 3G iPhones also came with a cleaning cloth The first generation iPhone included a stereo headset earbuds and a microphone and a plastic dock to hold the unit upright while charging and syncing The iPhone 3G includes a similar headset plus a SIM eject tool the first generation model requires a paperclip The iPhone 3GS includes the SIM eject tool and a revised headset, which adds volume buttons not functional with previous iPhone versions

The iPhone 3G and 3GS are compatible with the same dock, sold separately, but not the first generation model's dock All versions include a USB power adapter, or "wall charger," which allows the iPhone to charge from an AC outlet The iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS sold in North America, Japan, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru include an ultracompact USB power adapter


Main articles: iOS and iOS version history The iPhone Home screen shows most of the applications provided by Apple Users can download additional applications from the App store, create Web Clips, rearrange the icons, and create and delete folders

The iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad run an operating system known as iOS formerly iPhone OS It is a variant of the same Darwin operating system core that is found in Mac OS X Also included is the "Core Animation" software component from Mac OS X v105 Leopard Together with the PowerVR hardware and on the iPhone 3GS, OpenGL ES 20, it is responsible for the interface's motion graphics The operating system takes up less than half a gigabyte

It is capable of supporting bundled and future applications from Apple, as well as from third-party developers Software applications cannot be copied directly from Mac OS X but must be written and compiled specifically for iOS

Like the iPod, the iPhone is managed from a computer using iTunes The earliest versions of the OS required version 73 or later, which is compatible with Mac OS X version 1039 Panther or later, and 32-bit Windows XP or Vista The release of iTunes 76 expanded this support to include 64-bit versions of XP and Vista, and a workaround has been discovered for previous 64-bit Windows operating systems

Apple provides free updates to the OS for the iPhone through iTunes, and major updates have historically accompanied new models Such updates often require a newer version of iTunes—for example, the 30 update requires iTunes 82—but the iTunes system requirements have stayed the same Updates include bug fixes, security patches and new features For example, iPhone 3G users initially experienced dropped calls until an update was issued

Version 31 required iTunes 90, and iOS 4 required iTunes 92 iTunes 105, which is required to sync and activate iOS 5, requires Mac OS X 1058 or Leopard on G4 or G5 computers on 800 MHz or higher; versions 103 and 104 and 105–1057 are no longer supported

From September 9, 2014, all new iPhone models released were expected to include a new mobile wallet feature developed in conjunction with major credit card issuers American Express, MasterCard, and Visa Support was later added for Discover and UnionPay cards


The interface is based around the home screen, a graphical list of available applications iPhone applications normally run one at a time Starting with the iPhone 4, a primitive version of multitasking came into play Users could double click the home button to select recently opened applications However, the apps never ran in the background Starting with iOS 7, though, apps can truly multitask, and each open application runs in the background when not in use, although most functionality is still available when making a call or listening to music The home screen can be accessed at any time by a hardware button below the screen, closing the open application in the process

By default, the Home screen contains the following icons: Messages SMS and MMS messaging, Calendar, Photos, Camera, YouTube, Stocks, Maps Google Maps, Weather, Voice Memos, Notes, Clock, Calculator, Settings, iTunes store, App Store, on the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 Compass, FaceTime and GameCenter were added in iOS 40 and 41 respectively In iOS 5, Reminders and Newsstand were added, as well as the iPod application split into separate Music and Videos applications iOS 6 added Passbook as well as an updated version of Maps that relies on data provided by TomTom as well as other sources iOS 6 also added a Clock application onto the iPad's homescreen YouTube no longer came as a pre-installed application Docked at the base of the screen, four icons for Phone, Mail, Safari Internet, and Music delineate the iPhone's main purposes On January 15, 2008, Apple released software update 113, allowing users to create "Web Clips", home screen icons that resemble apps that open a user-defined page in Safari After the update, iPhone users can rearrange and place icons by holding down on any icon and moving it to the desired location once they start shaking on up to nine other adjacent home screens, accessed by a horizontal swipe

Users can also add and delete icons from the dock, which is the same on every home screen Each home screen holds up to twenty icons for iPhone 2G, 3G, 4 and 4S, while each home screen for iPhone 5 holds up to twenty-four icons due to a larger screen display, and the dock holds up to four icons Users can delete Web Clips and third-party applications at any time, and may select only certain applications for transfer from iTunes Apple's default programs, could only be removed since the iOS 10 update The 30 update adds a system-wide search, known as Spotlight, to the left of the first home screen

Almost all input is given through the touch screen, which understands complex gestures using multi-touch The iPhone's interaction techniques enable the user to move the content up or down by a touch-drag motion of the finger For example, zooming in and out of web pages and photos is done by placing two fingers on the screen and spreading them farther apart or bringing them closer together, a gesture known as "pinching"

Scrolling through a long list or menu is achieved by sliding a finger over the display from bottom to top, or vice versa to go back In either case, the list moves as if it is pasted on the outer surface of a wheel, slowly decelerating as if affected by friction In this way, the interface simulates the physics of a real object

Other user-centered interactive effects include horizontally sliding sub-selection, the vertically sliding keyboard and bookmarks menu, and widgets that turn around to allow settings to be configured on the other side Menu bars are found at the top and bottom of the screen when necessary Their options vary by program, but always follow a consistent style motif In menu hierarchies, a "back" button in the top-left corner of the screen displays the name of the parent folder


When making a call, the iPhone presents a number of options, including FaceTime on supported models The screen is automatically disabled when held close to the face

The iPhone allows audio conferencing, call holding, call merging, caller ID, and integration with other cellular network features and iPhone functions For example, if music is playing when a call is received, the music fades out, and fades back in when the call has ended

The proximity sensor shuts off the screen and touch-sensitive circuitry when the iPhone is brought close to the face, both to save battery and prevent unintentional touches The iPhone does not support video calling or videoconferencing on versions prior to the fourth generation, as there is only one camera on the opposite side of the screen

The iPhone 4 supports video calling using either the front or back camera over Wi-Fi, a feature Apple calls FaceTime Voice control, introduced in the iPhone 3GS, allows users to say a contact's name or number and the iPhone will dial it The first two models only support voice dialing through third-party applications

The iPhone includes a visual voicemail in some countries feature allowing users to view a list of current voicemail messages on-screen without having to call into their voicemail Unlike most other systems, messages can be listened to and deleted in a non-chronological order by choosing any message from an on-screen list

A music ringtone feature was introduced in the United States on September 5, 2007 Users can create custom ringtones from songs purchased from the iTunes Store for a small additional fee The ringtones can be 3 to 30 seconds long from any part of a song, can fade in and out, pause from half a second to five seconds when looped, or loop continuously All customizing can be done in iTunes, or with Apple's GarageBand software 411 or later available only on Mac OS X or third-party tools

With the release of iOS 6, which was released on September 19, 2012, Apple added features that enable the user to have options to decline a phone call when a person is calling them The user can reply with a message, or to set a reminder to call them back at a later time


The layout of the music library is similar to that of an iPod or current Symbian S60 phones The iPhone can sort its media library by songs, artists, albums, videos, playlists, genres, composers, podcasts, audiobooks, and compilations Options are always presented alphabetically, except in playlists, which retain their order from iTunes The iPhone uses a large font that allows users plenty of room to touch their selection

Users can rotate their device horizontally to landscape mode to access Cover Flow Like on iTunes, this feature shows the different album covers in a scroll-through photo library Scrolling is achieved by swiping a finger across the screen Alternatively, headset controls can be used to pause, play, skip, and repeat tracks On the iPhone 3GS, the volume can be changed with the included Apple Earphones, and the Voice Control feature can be used to identify a track, play songs in a playlist or by a specific artist, or create a Genius playlist

The iPhone supports gapless playback Like the fifth-generation iPods introduced in 2005, the iPhone can play digital video, allowing users to watch TV shows and movies in widescreen Double-tapping switches between widescreen and fullscreen video playback

The iPhone allows users to purchase and download songs from the iTunes Store directly to their iPhone The feature originally required a Wi-Fi network, but now since 2012, can use the cellular data network if one is not available

The iPhone includes software that allows the user to upload, view, and email photos taken with the camera The user zooms in and out of photos by sliding two fingers further apart or closer together, much like Safari The camera application also lets users view the camera roll, the pictures that have been taken with the iPhone's camera Those pictures are also available in the Photos application, along with any transferred from iPhoto or Aperture on a Mac, or Photoshop on a Windows PC

Internet connectivity

Wikipedia Main Page on the iPhone Safari web browser in landscape mode

Internet access is available when the iPhone is connected to a local area Wi-Fi or a wide area GSM or EDGE network, both second-generation 2G wireless data standards The iPhone 3G introduced support for third-generation UMTS and HSDPA 36, the iPhone 4S introduced support for HSUPA networks 144 Mbit/s, and support for HSDPA 72 was introduced in the iPhone 3GS Networks accessible from iPhone models include 1xRTT represented by a 1x on the status bar and GPRS shown as GPRS on the status bar, EDGE shown as a capital E on the status bar, UMTS and EV-DO shown as 3G, a faster version of UMTS and 4G shown as a 4G symbol on the status bar, and LTE shown as LTE on the status bar

AT&T introduced 3G in July 2004, but as late as 2007, Steve Jobs stated that it was still not widespread enough in the US, and the chipsets not energy efficient enough, to be included in the iPhone Support for 8021X, an authentication system commonly used by university and corporate Wi-Fi networks, was added in the 20 version update

By default, the iPhone will ask to join newly discovered Wi-Fi networks and prompt for the password when required Alternatively, it can join closed Wi-Fi networks manually The iPhone will automatically choose the strongest network, connecting to Wi-Fi instead of EDGE when it is available Similarly, the iPhone 3G and onwards prefer 3G to 2G, and Wi-Fi to either

Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 3G on the iPhone 3G onwards can all be deactivated individually Airplane mode disables all wireless connections at once, overriding other preferences However, once in Airplane mode, one can explicitly enable Wi-Fi and/or Bluetooth modes to join and continue to operate over one or both of those networks while the cellular network transceivers remain off

The iPhone 3GS has a maximum download rate of 72 Mbit/s Furthermore, email attachments as well as apps and media from Apple's various stores must be smaller than 20 MB to be downloaded over a cellular network Larger files, often email attachments or podcasts, must be downloaded over Wi-Fi which has no file size limits If Wi-Fi is unavailable, one workaround is to open the files directly in Safari

Safari is the iPhone's native web browser, and it displays pages similar to its Mac and Windows counterparts Web pages may be viewed in portrait or landscape mode and the device supports automatic zooming by pinching together or spreading apart fingertips on the screen, or by double-tapping text or images Safari does not allow file downloads except for predefined extensions The iPhone does not support Flash

Consequently, the UK's Advertising Standards Authority adjudicated that an advertisement claiming the iPhone could access "all parts of the internet" should be withdrawn in its current form, on grounds of false advertising In a rare public letter in April 2010, Apple CEO Steve Jobs outlined the reasoning behind the absence of Flash on the iPhone and iPad The iPhone supports SVG, CSS, HTML Canvas, and Bonjour

Google Chrome was introduced to the iOS on June 26, 2012 In a review by Chitika on July 18, 2012, they announced that the Google Chrome web browser has 15% of the iOS web browser market since its release

The Maps application can access Google Maps in map, satellite, or hybrid form It can also generate directions between two locations, while providing optional real-time traffic information During the iPhone's announcement, Jobs demonstrated this feature by searching for nearby Starbucks locations and then placing a prank call to one with a single tap Support for walking directions, public transit, and street view was added in the version 22 software update, but no voice-guided navigation

The iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 can orient the map with its digital compass Apple also developed a separate application to view YouTube videos on the iPhone, which streams videos after encoding them using the H264 codec Simple weather and stock quotes applications also tap into the Internet

IPhone users can and do access the Internet frequently, and in a variety of places According to Google, in 2008, the iPhone generated 50 times more search requests than any other mobile handset According to Deutsche Telekom CEO René Obermann, "The average Internet usage for an iPhone customer is more than 100 megabytes This is 30 times the use for our average contract-based consumer customers" Nielsen found that 98% of iPhone users use data services, and 88% use the internet In China, the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS were built and distributed without Wi-Fi

With the introduction of the Verizon iPhone in January 2011, the issue of using internet while on the phone was brought to the public's attention Under the two US carriers, internet and phone could be used simultaneously on AT&T networks, whereas Verizon networks only support the use of each separately

However, in 2014, Verizon announced that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus would allow simultaneous voice and data over its LTE Network T-Mobile and Sprint have enabled calls over Wi-Fi, with Verizon and AT&T soon doing the same

Text input

The virtual keyboard on the first generation iPhone touchscreen

For text input, the iPhone implements a virtual keyboard on the touchscreen It has automatic spell checking and correction, predictive word capabilities, and a dynamic dictionary that learns new words The keyboard can predict what word the user is typing and complete it, and correct for the accidental pressing of keys near the presumed desired key

The keys are somewhat larger and spaced farther apart when in landscape mode, which is supported by only a limited number of applications Touching a section of text for a brief time brings up a magnifying glass, allowing users to place the cursor in the middle of existing text The virtual keyboard can accommodate 21 languages, including character recognition for Chinese

Alternate characters with accents for example, letters from the alphabets of other languages and emoji can be typed from the keyboard by pressing the letter for 2 seconds and selecting the alternate character from the popup The 30 update brought support for cut, copy, or pasting text, as well as landscape keyboards in more applications On iPhone 4S and above, Siri allows dictation

Email and text messages

The iPhone also features an email program that supports HTML email, which enables the user to embed photos in an email message PDF, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint attachments to mail messages can be viewed on the phone Apple's MobileMe platform offers push email, which emulates the functionality of the popular BlackBerry email solution, for an annual subscription Yahoo! offers a free push-email service for the iPhone IMAP although not Push-IMAP and POP3 mail standards are also supported, including Microsoft Exchange and Kerio Connect

In the first versions of the iPhone firmware, this was accomplished by opening up IMAP on the Exchange server Apple has also licensed Microsoft ActiveSync and supports the platform including push email with the release of iPhone 20 firmware The iPhone will sync email account settings over from Apple's own Mail application, Microsoft Outlook, and Microsoft Entourage, or it can be manually configured on the device itself The email program can access almost any IMAP or POP3 account

Text messages are presented chronologically in a mailbox format similar to Mail, which places all text from recipients together with replies Text messages are displayed in speech bubbles similar to iChat under each recipient's name The iPhone has built-in support for email message forwarding, drafts, and direct internal camera-to-email picture sending Support for multi-recipient SMS was added in the 113 software update Support for MMS was added in the 30 update, but not for the original first generation iPhone and not in the US until September 25, 2009

Third-party applications

See also: iOS SDK and App Store

At WWDC 2007 on June 11, 2007, Apple announced that the iPhone would support third-party web applications using Ajax that share the look and feel of the iPhone interface On October 17, 2007, Steve Jobs, in an open letter posted to Apple's "Hot News" weblog, announced that a software development kit SDK would be made available to third-party developers in February 2008 The iPhone SDK was officially announced and released on March 6, 2008, at the Apple Town Hall facility

It is a free download, with an Apple registration, that allows developers to develop native applications for the iPhone and iPod Touch, then test them in an "iPhone simulator" However, loading an application onto a real device is only possible after paying an Apple Developer Connection membership fee Developers are free to set any price for their applications to be distributed through the App Store, of which they will receive a 70% share

Developers can also opt to release the application for free and will not pay any costs to release or distribute the application beyond the membership fee The App Store was launched with the release of iOS 20, on July 11, 2008 The update was free for iPhone users; owners of older iPod Touches were required to pay US$10 for it

Once a developer has submitted an application to the App Store, Apple holds firm control over its distribution Apple can halt the distribution of applications it deems inappropriate, for example, I Am Rich, a US$1000 program that simply demonstrated the wealth of its user Apple has been criticized for banning third-party applications that enable a functionality that Apple does not want the iPhone to have: In 2008, Apple rejected Podcaster, which allowed iPhone users to download podcasts directly to the iPhone claiming it duplicated the functionality of iTunes Apple has since released a software update that grants this capability

NetShare, another rejected app, would have enabled users to tether their iPhone to a laptop or desktop, using its cellular network to load data for the computer Many carriers of the iPhone later globally allowed tethering before Apple officially supported it with the upgrade to the iOS 30, with AT&T Mobility being a relative latecomer in the United States In most cases, the carrier charges extra for tethering an iPhone

Before the SDK was released, third parties were permitted to design "Web Apps" that would run through Safari Unsigned native applications are also available for "jailbroken" phones The ability to install native applications onto the iPhone outside of the App Store is not supported by Apple, the stated reason being that such native applications could be broken by any software update, but Apple has stated it will not design software updates specifically to break native applications other than those that perform SIM unlocking

As of October 2013, Apple has passed 60 billion app downloads As of September 2016, there have been over a 140 billion apps downloaded from the App Store

Accessibility features

Starting with the iPhone 4S, Apple added an accessibility feature to optimize the function of the iPhone with hearing aids Apple released a program of Made for iPhone Hearing Aids These hearing aids deliver a power-efficient, high-quality digital audio experience and allow the user to manage the hearing aid right from your iPhone Made for iPhone hearing aids also feature Live Listen With Live Listen the iPhone acts as a remote microphone that sends sound to a Made for iPhone hearing aid Live Listen can help the user hear a conversation in a noisy room or hear someone speaking across the room

The Braille Displays for iOS program was announced by Apple coinciding with the release of the iPhone 3GS, iPad and iPod Touch 3rd Generation This program added support for more than 50 Bluetooth wireless braille displays that work with iOS out of the box The user only needs to pair the keyboard to the device to start using it to navigate the iOS device with VoiceOver without any additional software iOS supports braille tables for more than 25 languages

IPhone lets the user know when an alert is sent to the it, in a variety of notice methods It delivers both visual and vibrating alerts for incoming phone and FaceTime calls, new text messages, new and sent mail, and calendar events You can set an LED light flash for incoming calls and alerts Or have incoming calls display a photo of the caller Users can choose from different vibration patterns or even create their own

The iPhone can enlarge text to make it more accessible for vision-impaired users, and can accommodate hearing-impaired users with closed captioning and external TTY devices The iPhone 3GS also features white on black mode, VoiceOver a screen reader, and zooming for impaired vision, and mono audio for limited hearing in one ear Apple regularly publishes Voluntary Product Accessibility Templates which explicitly state compliance with the US regulation "Section 508"

With the release of the newer iOS 9 for all iPhones, users now have the ability to choose between 2 different screen view options The user can choose to have a standard view or zoomed view When the iPhone is placed in a standard view setting, the icons are normal size and the text remains the same With a zoomed view option, the icons on the screen and the text become slightly larger This enables the user to have a more customized appearance and it can potentially help some users read the screen easier

AssistiveTouch helps to adapt the Multi-Touch screen of an iOS device to your unique physical needs This can be of great assistance to those who have difficulty with some gestures, like pinch, one can make them accessible with just a tap of a finger The user can create their own gestures and customize the layout of the AssistiveTouch menu If the user has trouble pressing the Home button, it can be set so that it can be activated with an onscreen tap Gestures like rotate and shake are available even when if the iOS device is mounted on a wheelchair

Guided Access helps people with autism or other attention and sensory challenges stay focused on the task or app at hand With Guided Access, a parent, teacher, or therapist can limit an iOS device to stay on one app by disabling the Home button, and limit the amount of time spent in an app The user can even restrict access to the keyboard or touch input on certain areas of the screen So wandering taps and gestures won’t distract from learning

Intellectual property

Apple has filed more than 200 patent applications related to the technology behind the iPhone

LG Electronics claimed the design of the iPhone was copied from the LG Prada Woo-Young Kwak, head of LG Mobile Handset R&D Center, said at a press conference: "we consider that Apple copied Prada phone after the design was unveiled when it was presented in the iF Design Award and won the prize in September 2006"

On September 3, 1993, Infogear filed for the US trademark "I PHONE" and on March 20, 1996, applied for the trademark "IPhone" "I Phone" was registered in March 1998, and "IPhone" was registered in 1999 Since then, the I PHONE mark had been abandoned Infogear trademarks cover "communications terminals comprising computer hardware and software providing integrated telephone, data communications and personal computer functions" 1993 filing, and "computer hardware and software for providing integrated telephone communication with computerized global information networks" 1996 filing

Infogear released a telephone with an integrated web browser under the name iPhone in 1998 In 2000, Infogear won an infringement claim against the owners of the iphonescom domain name In June 2000, Cisco Systems acquired Infogear, including the iPhone trademark On December 18, 2006, they released a range of re-branded Voice over IP VoIP sets under the name iPhone

In October 2002, Apple applied for the "iPhone" trademark in the United Kingdom, Australia, Singapore, and the European Union A Canadian application followed in October 2004, and a New Zealand application in September 2006 As of October 2006, only the Singapore and Australian applications had been granted

In September 2006, a company called Ocean Telecom Services applied for an "iPhone" trademark in the United States, United Kingdom and Hong Kong, following a filing in Trinidad and Tobago As the Ocean Telecom trademark applications use exactly the same wording as the New Zealand application of Apple, it is assumed that Ocean Telecom is applying on behalf of Apple The Canadian application was opposed in August 2005, by a Canadian company called Comwave who themselves applied for the trademark three months later Comwave has been selling VoIP devices called iPhone since 2004

Shortly after Steve Jobs' January 9, 2007 announcement that Apple would be selling a product called iPhone in June 2007, Cisco issued a statement that it had been negotiating trademark licensing with Apple and expected Apple to agree to the final documents that had been submitted the night before On January 10, 2007, Cisco announced it had filed a lawsuit against Apple over the infringement of the trademark iPhone, seeking an injunction in federal court to prohibit Apple from using the name More recently, Cisco claimed that the trademark lawsuit was a "minor skirmish" that was not about money, but about interoperability

On February 2, 2007, Apple and Cisco announced that they had agreed to temporarily suspend litigation while they held settlement talks, and subsequently announced on February 20, 2007, that they had reached an agreement Both companies will be allowed to use the "iPhone" name in exchange for "exploring interoperability" between their security, consumer, and business communications products

The iPhone has also inspired several leading high-tech clones, driving both the popularity of Apple and consumer willingness to upgrade iPhones quickly

On October 22, 2009, Nokia filed a lawsuit against Apple for infringement of its GSM, UMTS and WLAN patents Nokia alleges that Apple has been violating ten Nokia patents since the iPhone initial release

In December 2010, Reuters reported that some iPhone and iPad users were suing Apple Inc because some applications were passing user information to third-party advertisers without permission Some makers of the applications such as Textplus4, Paper Toss, The Weather Channel, Dictionarycom, Talking Tom Cat and Pumpkin Maker have also been named as co-defendants in the lawsuit

In August 2012, Apple won a smartphone patent lawsuit in the USA against Samsung, the world's largest maker of smartphones

In March 2013, an Apple patent for a wraparound display was revealed

Secret tracking

Since April 20, 2011, a hidden unencrypted file on the iPhone and other iOS devices has been widely discussed in the media It was alleged that the file, labeled "consolidateddb", constantly stores the iPhone user's movement by approximating geographic locations calculated by triangulating nearby cell phone towers, a technology proven to be inaccurate at times The file was released with the June 2010 update of Apple iOS4 and may contain almost a year's worth of data Previous versions of iOS stored similar information in a file called "h-cellsplist"

F-Secure discovered that the data is transmitted to Apple twice a day and postulate that Apple is using the information to construct their global location database similar to the ones constructed by Google and Skyhook through wardriving Nevertheless, unlike the Google "Latitude" application, which performs a similar task on Android phones, the file is not dependent upon signing a specific EULA or even the user's knowledge, but it is stated in the 15,200 word-long terms and conditions of the iPhone that "Apple and partners and licensees may collect, use, and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of Apple computer or device"

The file is also automatically copied onto the user's computer once synchronized with the iPhone An open source application named "iPhoneTracker", which turns the data stored in the file into a visual map, was made available to the public in April 2011 While the file cannot be erased without jailbreaking the phone, it can be encrypted

Apple gave an official response on their web site on April 27, 2011, after questions were submitted by users, the Associated Press and others Apple clarified that the data is a small portion of their crowd-sourced location database cache of Wi-Fi hotspots and cell towers which is downloaded from Apple into the iPhone for making location services faster than with only GPS, therefore the data does not represent the locations of the iPhone The volume of data retained was an error Apple issued an update for iOS version 433, or 428 for the CDMA iPhone 4 which reduced the size of the cache, stopped it being backed up to iTunes, and erased it entirely whenever location services were turned off The upload to Apple can also be selectively disabled from "System services", "Cell Network Search" Regardless, in July 2014, a report on state-owned China Central Television labeled the iPhone a "national security concern"

A feature that can be found under "location services" in the settings of the iPhone has also been found to be secretly tracking the user's information This feature is called "frequent locations" and it can either be kept on or turned off This feature is said to help the accuracy of the GPS and Apple Maps since it can log information about the locations the user has frequently visited However, this feature also keeps track of the number of times that he/she has been to that location, the dates, and the exact times A lot of people have found this feature to be intrusive of their personal lives and have since then had an option to keep it on or shut it off

Encryption and intelligence agency access

It was revealed as a part of the 2013 mass surveillance disclosures that the American and British intelligence agencies, the National Security Agency NSA and the Government Communications Headquarters GCHQ have access to the user data in iPhones, BlackBerrys, and Android phones, respectively They can read almost all smartphone information, including SMS, location, emails, and notes

According to a The New York Times article titled "Signaling Post-Snowden Era, New iPhone Locks Out NSA", Apple has developed a new encryption method for iOS 8, described as "so deep that Apple could no longer comply with government warrants asking for customer information to be extracted from devices"

Throughout 2015, prosecutors in the United States argued for the US government to be able to compel decryption of iPhone contents After the 2015 San Bernardino attack, the FBI recovered an iPhone 5C that was issued to one of the shooters by his employer, and iCloud backups of that phone from a month and a half before the shooting The shooters had destroyed their personal phones The US government attempted to use the arcane and outdated All Writs Act to obtain a court order ordering Apple to produce an IPSW file that would allow investigators to brute force the passcode of the iPhone, which would equate to modernized slavery Tim Cook responded on the company's website, outlining a need for encryption, arguing that if they produce a backdoor for one device, it would inevitably be used to compromise the privacy of other iPhone users On February 19, Apple communicated to journalists that the password for the Apple ID for the iPhone had been changed within a day of the government obtaining it, preventing Apple from producing a workaround that would only target older devices See FBI–Apple encryption dispute

As of April 2016, Apple's Privacy Policy addresses requests from government agencies for access to customers' data: "Apple has never worked with any government agency from any country to create a “backdoor” in any of our products or services We have also never allowed any government access to our servers And we never will" In 2015 the Electronic Frontier Foundation awarded Apple 5 out of 5 stars “commend Apple for its strong stance regarding user rights, transparency, and privacy”


See also: Hardware restrictions § Apple devices

Apple tightly controls certain aspects of the iPhone According to Jonathan Zittrain, the emergence of closed devices like the iPhone have made computing more proprietary than early versions of Microsoft Windows

The hacker community has found many workarounds, most of which are disallowed by Apple and make it difficult or impossible to obtain warranty service "Jailbreaking" allows users to install apps not available on the App Store or modify basic functionality SIM unlocking allows the iPhone to be used on a different carrier's network However, in the United States, Apple cannot void an iPhone's warranty unless it can show that a problem or component failure is linked to the installation or placement of an after-market item such as unauthorized applications, because of the Federal Trade Commission's Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975

The iPhone also has an area and settings where users can set restrictions or parental controls on apps that can be downloaded or used within the iPhone The restrictions area requires a password


The iPhone normally prevents access to its media player and web features unless it has also been activated as a phone with an authorized carrier On July 3, 2007, Jon Lech Johansen reported on his blog that he had successfully bypassed this requirement and unlocked the iPhone's other features with a combination of custom software and modification of the iTunes binary He published the software and offsets for others to use

Unlike the first generation iPhone, the iPhone 3G must be activated in the store in most countries This makes the iPhone 3G more difficult, but not impossible, to hack The need for in-store activation, as well as the huge number of first-generation iPhone and iPod Touch users upgrading to iPhone OS 20, caused a worldwide overload of Apple's servers on July 11, 2008, the day on which both the iPhone 3G and iPhone OS 20 updates as well as MobileMe were released After the update, devices were required to connect to Apple's servers to authenticate it, causing many devices to be temporarily unusable

Users on the O2 network in the United Kingdom, however, can buy the phone online and activate it via iTunes as with the previous model Even where not required, vendors usually offer activation for the buyer's convenience In the US, Apple has begun to offer free shipping on both the iPhone 3G and the iPhone 3GS when available, reversing the in-store activation requirement Best Buy and Walmart will also sell the iPhone

Unapproved third-party software and jailbreaking

See also: iOS jailbreaking and iPhone Dev Team

The iPhone's operating system is designed to only run software that has an Apple-approved cryptographic signature This restriction can be overcome by "jailbreaking" the phone, which involves replacing the iPhone's firmware with a slightly modified version that does not enforce the signature check Doing so may be a circumvention of Apple's technical protection measures Apple, in a statement to the United States Copyright Office in response to Electronic Frontier Foundation EFF lobbying for a DMCA exception for this kind of hacking, claimed that jailbreaking the iPhone would be copyright infringement due to the necessary modification of system software However, in 2010, Jailbreaking was declared officially legal in the United States by the DMCA Jailbroken iPhones may be susceptible to computer viruses, but few such incidents have been reported

iOS and Android 233 'Gingerbread' may be set up to dual boot on a jailbroken iPhone with the help of OpeniBoot or iDroid

In 2007, 2010, and 2011, developers released a series of tools called JailbreakMe that used security vulnerabilities in Mobile Safari rendering to jailbreak the device which allows users to install any compatible software on the device instead of only App Store apps Each of these exploits were quickly fixed by iOS updates from Apple Theoretically these flaws could have also been used for malicious purposes

In July 2011, Apple released iOS 435 4210 for CDMA iPhone to fix a security vulnerability with certificate validation

Following the release of the iPhone 5S model, a group of German hackers called the Chaos Computer Club announced on September 21, 2013, that they had bypassed Apple's new Touch ID fingerprint sensor by using "easy everyday means" The group explained that the security system had been defeated by photographing a fingerprint from a glass surface and using that captured image as verification The spokesman for the group stated: "We hope that this finally puts to rest the illusions people have about fingerprint biometrics It is plain stupid to use something that you can't change and that you leave everywhere every day as a security token"

SIM unlocking

United States

iPhone 3G shown with the SIM tray partially ejected

Most iPhones were and are still sold with a SIM lock, which restricts the use of the phone to one particular carrier, a common practice with subsidized GSM phones Unlike most GSM phones however, the phone cannot be officially unlocked by entering a code The locked/unlocked state is maintained on Apple's servers per IMEI and is set when the iPhone is activated

While the iPhone was initially sold in the US only on the AT&T network with a SIM lock in place, various hackers have found methods to "unlock" the phone from a specific network Although AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon are the only authorized iPhone carriers in the United States, unlocked iPhones can be used with other carriers For example, an unlocked iPhone may be used on the T-Mobile network in the US but, while an unlocked iPhone is compatible with T-Mobile's voice network, it may not be able to make use of 3G functionality ie no mobile web or e-mail, etc More than a quarter of the original 1st generation iPhones sold in the US were not registered with AT&T Apple speculates that they were likely shipped overseas and unlocked, a lucrative market before the iPhone 3G's worldwide release

On March 26, 2009, AT&T in the United States began selling the iPhone without a contract, though still SIM-locked to their network The up-front purchase price of such iPhone units is often twice as expensive as those bundled with contracts

Outside of the United States, policies differ, especially in US territories and insular areas like Guam; GTA Teleguam was the exclusive carrier for the iPhone since its introduction, as none of the four US carriers AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon have a presence in the area Since 2013, Docomo Pacific ended GTA's exclusivity starting with the iPhone 5

Beginning April 8, 2012, AT&T began offering a factory SIM unlock option which Apple calls a "whitelisting", allowing it to be used on any carrier the phone supports for iPhone owners

It has been reported that all of the Verizon 4G LTE phones come factory unlocked After such discovery, Verizon announced that all of their 4G LTE phones, including iPhones, would remain unlocked This is due to the regulations that the FCC has placed on the 700 MHz C-Block spectrum, which is used by Verizon

United Kingdom

In the United Kingdom, O2, EE, 3, Vodafone, and Tesco Mobile sell the device under subsidised contracts, or for use on pay as you go They are locked to the network initially, though they can usually be unlocked either after a certain period of contract length has passed, or for a small fee with the exception of the 3 network, which will unlock the device at any time for no charge However, all current versions of iPhone are available for purchase SIM-free from the Apple Store or Apple's Online Store, consequently, they are unlocked for use on any GSM network too

Australia and other countries

Four major carriers in Australia Optus, Telstra, Virgin Mobile, and Vodafone offer legitimate unlocking, now at no cost for all iPhone devices, both current and prior models

Internationally, policies vary, but many carriers sell the iPhone unlocked for full retail price

Legal battles over brand name


In 2003, four years before the iPhone was officially introduced, the trademark iFone was registered in Mexico by a communications systems and services company, iFone Apple tried to gain control over its brandname, but a Mexican court denied the request The case began in 2009, when the Mexican firm sued Apple The Supreme court of Mexico upheld that iFone is the rightful owner and held that Apple iPhone is a trademark violation


In Brazil the brand IPHONE was registered in 2000 by the company then called Gradiente Eletrônica SA, now IGB Eletrônica SA According to the filing, Gradiente foresaw the revolution in the convergence of voice and data over the Internet at the time

In Brazil, the final battle over the brandname concluded in 2008 On December 18, 2012, IGB launched its own line of Android smartphones under the tradename to which it has exclusive rights in the local market In February 2013, the Brazilian Patent and Trademark Office known as "Instituto Nacional da Propriedade Industrial" issued a ruling that Gradiente Eletrônica, not Apple, owned the "iPhone" mark in Brazil The "iPhone" term was registered by Gradiente in 2000, 7 years before Apple’s release of its first iPhone This decision came 3 months after Gradiente Eletrônica launched a lower-cost smartphone using the iPhone brand

In June 2014, Apple won, for the second time, the right to use the brandname in Brazil The court ruling determined that the Gradiente's registration does not own exclusive rights on the brand Although Gradiente intended to appeal, with the decision Apple can use freely the brand without paying royalties to the Brazilian company


In the Philippines, Solid Group launched the MyPhone brand in 2007 Stylized as "my|phone", Solid Broadband filed a trademark application of that brand Apple later filed a trademark case at the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines IPOPHL against Solid Broadband's MyPhone for "confusingly similar" to the iPhone and that it may likely "deceive" or "cause confusion" among consumers

However, on May 19, 2015, Apple lost the trademark battle over Solid Group The decision was signed by IPO director Nathaniel Arevalo, who also reportedly said that it was unlikely that consumers would be confused between the "iPhone" and the "MyPhone" "This is a case of a giant trying to claim more territory than what it is entitled to, to the great prejudice of a local "Pinoy Phone" merchant who has managed to obtain a significant foothold in the mobile phone market through the marketing and sale of innovative products under a very distinctive trademark," Arevalo later added

Solid Broadband noted that Apple can still appeal the IPO's decision within 30 days after receipt of a copy of the decision The decision becomes final and executory if no appeal is filed on time
