The first iPhone was released in June 2007 and was revolutionary when first released. The iPhone was first released with only 16 GB of space for all your music and pictures as this iPhone didn’t have the App Store when released and came in the next model. The back camera on this device only had 2.0 megapixels which is crazy to think about now!

One year later, Apple released their next model a year later and although it wasn’t much in different in the iPhone internally and externally, this was the first iPhone to give users 3G connectivity allowing for the App Store in with users could download apps for the first time.

The next revolutionary iPhone was of the iPhone 4 which gave Apple fans their first change in design from the originally rounded 3GS. This iPhone was the first square iPhone with this design being the sleekest yet and also was the first iPhone to offer a front facing camera which started the selfie craze.

The iPhone 5c and 5s offered Apple fans the first chance to pick between a premium and budget options and was the first time that Apple’s sales figures doubled in size to 9 million sales in the first weekend.

With all these advances in technology, other industries such as online casinos have benefitted from these for example through the use of apps. You can find them at Maximum Casinos as they have one of the best online casino apps on the market.

iPhone 6s and the 6s Plus offered larger options for consumers as well as a huge leap in camera quality from 8 MP to 12 MP. The only other significant feature on this series was the introduction of 3D touch.

The iPhone 7 caused a lot of controversy as it was the first iPhone as it was the first iPhone that didn’t have a headphone port for users. This was mainly down to the fact that Apple were bringing out their hugely successful Airpods.

The iPhone X was the first iPhone that got rid of the home button on the front screen and offered a full screen display and therefore unlocked the phone through Face ID – something we couldn’t live without now.
