Ever since the invention of the first iPhone in 2007, Apple’s signature mobile phone is pretty much a household name. Over the years, this unbelievable piece of technology has affected everyone no doubt, some less and some more so, but one thing is for certain, it has affected them all. Apart from affecting people’s life and the way they do things, iPhone has also set in motion a few trends that wouldn’t have been possible if there was no iPhone in this world. So without further ado, let’s take a look at 6 of the most distinctive ways, the iPhone has affected mankind.
The concept of 24/7:
Before the invention of iPhone, we used to use a lot of different equipment for different purposes. For instance, in the earlier days you would turn on your computer, connect to the internet via a dial-up connection, and use a web browser to surf the internet. But nowadays, you can just use your phone, connect to the Wi-Fi or just use your network data package, to not just dial and receive calls, but also send and receive texts, compose e-mails, browse the internet without a browser, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for the rest of your life.
iPhone jailbroke, before Jailbreaking was cool:
The iPhone is a pretty sophisticated bit of technology that is making a lot of money for Apple, and so it should. Therefore, it seems natural to think that the company would want this to device to remain the flagship product, and to do just that, they would want everyone to use it. But when you want everyone to use it, you need to make a few compromises, such as Apple did, by letting iPhone go jailbroke. All versions iPhone can now be unlocked without much fuss and hassle, and there are so many tutorials available online that would teach you on how to unlock iphone 5.
The power of touch:
Before the invention of the iPhone, there was no significant development in the field of haptics as the primary source for operating your phones. In those days, the stylus was considered the most stylish concept available. But after the arrival of iPhone and its later versions, the rate of new phones using touch screen spiked so ferociously that it is still the norm right now. Be it Samsung, Nokia, Sony, or any other brand of new phones, Apple’s iPhone is the one that brought about this significant change in the way we use our mobile phones.
An alternative to a Portable camera:
Before the first iPhone hit the market, there were a few cell phone companies which put cameras in their phones, but the camera used in these iPhones was head and shoulder above the rest. iPhone’s HD camera was the first of its kind, and really revolutionized the entire process. There was no need for people to keep a portable camera on them at all times, all they had to do was buy an iPhone. Another important innovation that the iPhone brought, was the front camera, and this, as we all know it, is the basis for the new craze that is taking selfies.
All in one:
THE most important change that the iPhone has brought about since its revelation, is the ability to keep it all in one place. Your calls, texts, mails, photos, videos, music, calculators, maps, GPS, games, and so much more, are now in just a single device. Before the arrival of the iPhone, this concept was totally unheard off. iPhones are now not only the symbol of status, but also the need of the people. Apple’s relationship with its customers has always been a great talking point, with many people talking about the string of unbelievably insane changes that the newer versions of the phone have seen, but there is no doubt about the fact that people will still buy them.
