It’s been 10 years now, iPhones are still sensational!
Apple iPhone launched in 2007, has found its way into people’s hand, pocket and lives. This device has become one of world’s biggest tech success stories.
The original iPhone (2007) had a 3.5-inch screen with 480×320 pixels, 412 MHz single core CPU, 128MB RAM, 4GB storage, 2MP rear camera, no front camera, running on iOS 3.0.
Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO had then said, “IPhone set the standard for mobile computing in its first decade and we are just getting started.” He added, “The best is yet to come.”
Since the original device was launched, ten years back, Apple has continued to procreate better smartphones with enhanced cameras, waterproof designs, fingerprint scanners and faster processors to its iPhone. Till date, Phone has sold over one billion units.
Apple’s iPhone juggernaut has been losing its popularity since past 12 to 18 months.
Are iPhones losing their glint?
Rumours are making rounds that Apple has slashed iPhone productions. It did so during the iPhone 6S &6S Plus market debut; and now with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus it has cut the production by 10%.
This cut down on production, coincides with the downfall of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7, which took place at the time of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus launch. Several international reports are blaming iPhone’s lack of innovative tech and compelling features as the reason for reduced consumer interest.
The annulment of invention
The creativeness once adhered by the Apple iPhone faded. Competitors like Samsung and other Android manufacturers are overtaking the iPhone in terms of innovative features. It is a known fact that iPhone 7 Plus was not the first phone with features like stereo speakers, dual cameras and a water-resistant body. Their competitors had introduced octa-core or even deca-core chip-enabled smartphones in the market where the iPhone 7 Plus lagged behind with just a quad-core chip.

Despite of many ‘ups and downs’, the Apple and its iPhones has managed to maintain its hold in the Indian Market. The sales escalated after the 8 th November demonetisation announcement. Let’s await for the announcement for iPhone 8, in September this year, which will also mark the 10 th anniversary of the iPhone.
