    The S in 3GS stood for speed, as the phone was more powerful, zippier, but its most important novelty was probably that it was the first iPhone that could record video. The iPhone 3GS' new 3-megapixel camera debuted a video mode and was able to record videos at VGA (480p) resolution.

    The iPhone 4 was the first major redesign within the iPhone series, introducing a stunning for the time glass construction with a metal frame. It was also the first iPhone to come with a 'Retina' display, a new screen resolution of 640 x 960 pixels that was so sharp.

    The iPhone 5 marked a monumental moment for Apple: it was the first phone with a chip that Apple itself made. The iPhone 5 impressed with its design and speed improvements. The new iPhone 5 design was also thinner and lighter.

    For the first time ever, the non-Pro versions stick with mostly the same Apple A15 processor used in the previous generation, while only the Pro editions get the new Apple A16 chip. The other big news is that the Pro models get an upgrade to a larger-sensor, 48MP main camera. Cinematic Mode now works in 4K too, and supports both 24fps and 30fps.
