GADGET : APPLE iPHONE
History and original development of the iPhone
The Apple iPhone’s history is fairly easy to trace. There were many events that led to the invention of the iPhone however the original iPhone was released on the 29th June 2007 to the public. Before Apple created the iPhone, it went into partnership with a company called Motorola to develop a phone that used iTunes to integrate and manage both music, contacts and data information. The new ROKR E1 PDA (personal digital assistant) was released on the 7th September, 2005. Steve Jobs was the man who was involved in the design and technology of the iTunes. He was unhappy with the phone’s design when it came out. Apple stopped supporting the ROKR in September 2006, just a year after the phone’s release. Both Steve Jobs and Apple released a new ‘smartphone’ that was capable of displaying video and picture content and combining cell phones with data and PDA functions – hence the invention of the iPhone. Without iTunes, the iPhone would not exist today. iTunes is the foundation upon which Jobs’ vision for the future was built and it is the platform upon which the iPhone is build.
