Apple iPhones are amazing devices make no doubt about it. They are literally a phenomenon that has swept the globe and if you look around on any train carriage it becomes immediately apparent that the best proportion of the population all own them instead of other phones. This is because they are so practical and entertaining, owing much to their constant internet connection and their other functions such as GPS and compass.
The really revolutionary part is the fact that they allow us to download new applications on the fly which other users upload. This has opened up the phone to a wealth of creative new programmes which has made it exponentially more powerful and useful than it otherwise might have been. You can use an iPhone to call people of course, but you can also use it to wake you up in the morning, to convert currency, to locate nearby restaurants, to direct you in the car, to entertain you with games, to watch television, to listen to the radio, to shop online quickly and easily and to manage your finances among many many other things.
However despite all the amazing aspects of these wondrous phones, they do seem to get broken quite often and there are a number of reasons for this. The first reason is the fact that these phones are so useful, thus meaning that we take them out …show more content…
This then means that it can more easily than most phones slip out of your grasp and fall. That then means that on a night out or when getting it out of your pocket in a hurry it is fairly easy to drop and break it. This is not helped by the fact that so many iPhone games involve what is called an 'accelerometer' which means that you have to violently shake and swing the phone in some cases to do well in the games. This then means that the phone can slip out of your hand during such activities resulting in your throwing it a long
The sensation of the iPhone is obvious in person; everywhere you go, someone has one of these devices in their possession. With millions of units selling every year, it is no wonder that the device is becoming highly ubiquitous and iconic. Like other Apple products, the iPhone is something that is easily recognized all around the world. The same phone has been selling for over four years now with cosmetic and hardware updates for each year’s new iteration, along with an operating system that is becoming more refined. Since its release in 2007, the iPhone has been a massively successful product for Apple, who has sold more than 100 million units in the iPhone's first four year, including 18.6 million in the first quarter of 2011 (Artman). Other competitors make smartphones that are better than the iPhone in many ways, yet Apple is selling more than ever. Other companies release new phones faster than the yearly refresh of Apple’s iPhones, but the latest isn’t always the greatest. It isn’t the technology that makes the iPhone successful, but rather the cool factor that the device expresses (Mintz).
The functionality of the iPhone’s operating system is so smooth and advanced, it out performs Android operated device. Apple’s innovation and creativity has helped it to become the best mobile operating system on the market, “Because Apple makes both the hardware and the operating system for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, everything is designed to work
When Steve Jobs unveiled the iPhone at the Macworld convention in January of 2007, a tidal change in the way users communicate with one another was unleashed. The phone, which combined the already popular attributes of an iPod with the traditional cell phone, was an instant success, selling millions of units even at the initially haughty price of $599 each (Vogelstein, 2008). The theory behind the creation of the phone was deceptively simple: combine an MP3 player with a Blackberry, camera, and regular cell phone operating on a sleek touch-screen controlled software system. Consumers were finally freed from carrying separate devices to perform all they tasks they now wanted to away from home. In one simple hand-held device they could take pictures, listen to music, play games, communicate with friends and family, and even surf the Internet. This one device changed the way that people began sharing information, allowing them to instantly access information anywhere in the world while also transmitting it just as quickly. The iPhone is now universally recognized and has become a cultural artifact in our times.
New top-end mobile phones such as the Apple Iphone are allowing a new class of mobile to emerge in the world today.

Over the last decade, electronic-based companies such as Samsung and Apple have collaborated with cellular-phone carriers, and have studied the average consumer to find endless ways to improve the cellular phone. As a result, the smart phone was born. With their ability to provide users with instant access to communication, entertainment, Internet access, calendar, news, social media, and much more, the smart phone revolutionized and shifted the path of modern technology.

Being the first proper smart phone, many other companies attempted to mimic the unbeatable features and technology that Apple had included with the iPhone.
Without saying, the iPhone does no less of a job than any of the smart phones out in the market. More importantly, Apple has re-demonstrated to the world that their logo represents innovation and reliability. The advantages of having a big brand name means that people know your product, and believe in it. What Apple has over small companies and startup companies is a financial leverage over them. Instead of mass advertisement, apple can feed more of its money into R & D which can allow them to fuel the economy with new innovating idea’s and products. Strengths: 1) Brand name- Highly recognized name from previous products like Apple computers and iPod & iTunes. Known for offering multi-functional, reliable and cutting edge products- that is design capabilities of products. 2) Capital- profits from its long established operations give iPhone financial leverage or R & D Startup Company’s lack. Weaknesses: Like almost all products, the iPhone is not entirely flawless. Its major weakness is its limited channels of distribution. Unlike the IPod, which are sold through many retailers, the iPhone canonly be sold in AT&T stores, T-mobile, and Apple stores. Although AT&T is the largest phone service provider in the United States, they only currently serve 58 million out of 2.14 billion cell phone subscribers. Besides for their poor channels of

It is a strategy that may expand Apple's sphere of influence. Apple elegantly combined a mobile phone, mp3 player, and personal digital assistant (PDA) on the same machine characterized by its unique, innovative design.
The cell phone today can do just about anything needed, and is an outstanding improvement from when the first cell phone was invented. Major improvements such as its appearance, and its overall usefulness and capability. Though the first cell phone was an extreme breakthrough for modern technology at the time, the technological advancement today has made the cell phone not only extremely handy, but considered by most as a necessity. Only time can tell what future cell phones will be like and how we can compare them to the way we use them
