    Evolution of the iPhone

    Since the first iPhone Apple strived to make it better. From that point, they did bigger phones faster processing, advanced hardware, New and improved software, and so many accessories. The vision Apple had for the future of their company come into reality. Let me explain how through every iPhone.

    Ultimately, the iPhone 4 models are faster and have more RAM, better dual cameras, faster network support, better battery life, and newer iOS support than the iPhone 3GS. The iPhone 4 design itself with both a glass front and back can be less durable.

    The newer, faster iPhone 4S is the better choice. It has faster performance, faster mobile data support, a better camera, and support for iOS 9, whereas the iPhone 4 has limited iOS 7 support and no support for later versions of the iOS at all which made it better.

    Apple finally dropped the 16 GB base model option, with iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus base models starting at 32 GB of storage and going up to 256 GB. Apple also introduced a new shiny Jet Black color. The iPhone 7 Plus proved to be more popular than previous Plus models due to its new dual camera, which made a significantly improved zoom feature possible, and Portrait mode, a software update that let iPhone 7 Plus users take impressive photos using Depth of Field.
  • iPhone 8 & 8 Plus

    iPhone 8 & 8 Plus
    The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus introduced us to wireless charging with the glass cover on the back of the iPhone. The camera was awesome, with upgraded tools for editing and filtering our images. The true-tone display improved the viewing experience by automatically reducing blue-light exposure. Users eventually (mostly) got used to not having a headphone jack and began adapting to the wireless lifestyle.
  • iPhone X

    Skipping right over the iPhone 9, the iPhone X was released 10 years after the original iPhone. The iPhone X included an extra front-facing camera that let us take amazing selfies in Portrait mode.

    Apple announced the XS and XS Max at its September 2018 event in the Steve Jobs Theater. These models were well named, as they were definite upgrades along the lines of the iPhone X. Both models had a front-facing camera for Portrait-mode selfies. The displays were edge to edge, and it all looked great with the Super Retina HD display. The biggest upgrade might be the smallest; the A12 bionic chip increased the processing power while decreasing battery drain.
  • iPhone XR

    iPhone XR
    The iPhone XR was also announced at the September 2018 event but wasn't available right away. Because it was cheaper than the new models, quite a few people decided to wait for the XR to be available. These iPhones were smaller than the XS and XS Max (but still bigger than the 7 and 8 Plus). The display was not as crisp as the XS and XS Max, but with the Liquid Retina HD display, the difference wasn't too noticeable.
