    On January 9, 2007, Steve Jobs announced the iPhone at the Macworld convention, receiving substantial media attention.[16] Jobs announced that the first iPhone would be released later that year. On June 29, 2007, the first iPhone was released.

    Apple's second iPhone was a big departure from the original. The iPhone 3G dropped in price thanks to a new plastic rear, but also gained 3G connectivity, GPS, third-party apps, and a white model to choose from. A rounded rear completed the look, and button placements remained the same.
  • 3GS

    Apple's third iPhone is practically identical to its second. The iPhone 3GS has the same plastic rear, but Apple made the iPhone text stand out with a silver color. Inside, Apple focused on speed improvements and a 3-megapixel camera capable of recording video. Apple also introduced a voice control feature alongside a highly requested cut, copy, and paste feature in iOS 3.

    Apple’s first major redesign of the iPhone featured a combination of stainless steel and glass. Both the front and back of the iPhone 4 is covered in glass, and the square and flat look is a radical departure from the previous 3GS model. Apple also introduced a forward-facing camera with FaceTime, a 3.5-inch Retina display, and a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash.
  • 5S

    Continuing the S trend, Apple’s iPhone 5S is almost identical in appearance to the iPhone 5 at first glance. New color combinations differentiate it from the 5, and a gold option offered an alternative to the typical black or white. Apple also redesigned its home button for the first time with the iPhone 5S, adding a fingerprint Touch ID sensor to unlock the device by simply touching your finger on the home button.
  • 5C

    While many were expecting the iPhone 5C to be a budget iPhone, it debuted as an iPhone 5 with a plastic rear. That made it slightly cheaper, but its internal components are identical to the iPhone 5. While Apple had always stuck to black and white color combinations for its iPhone, the iPhone 5C introduced some much needed color to the range.

    We're back up to date with the iPhone 6 Apple launched last year and the one still currently on sale as the flagship. As well as another design revamp, the iPhone 6 extended the display size to 4.7 inches and added in more pixels to boot. Also worth noting is the introduction of NFC for Apple Pay and other services, plus a significant upgrade for the camera, giving better photo and video results than ever before.
  • 6S

    The iPhone 6S is almost identical to 2014's iPhone 6, to the point that we could barely tell the difference between the two in the hand, with a little extra thickness and weight to give you the clue that you're holding a next-gem phone in your hand. But while the outside is identical, the stuff that Cook's Crew crammed inside is a change - hence Apple's decision to give this phone the tagline: 'The Only Thing That's Changed Is Everything' http://www.t3.com/features/a-brief-history-of-the-iphone
  • SE

    This one was a bit of a surprise. We'd expected a smaller iPhone with a lower price tag, but we didn't expect it to look like the iPhone 5 but with completely up-to-date innards. In our iPhone SE review we said "you won't buy this phone - but you will tell someone else to". Compared with its bigger screened bretheren it represented genuine value for money - although not compared to the huge number of Android alternatives of course.

    There's one divisive change to iPhone 7 over the iPhone 6S and you've probably heard about it. You've made your mind up about it, whatever we say in the next sentence. But the fact is the lack of headphone jack matters not. If you've got Bluetooth headphones you're sorted. Usually use the EarPods in the box? They're still in the box. If you use expensive wired cans, there's an adapter.
