Apple has been around for about 43 years and has created at least 20 different products, from computers to phones to headphones, according to source. It released its first iPhone on June 29, 2007. This first phone was called the iPhone 2G. The cell phone was $499 for the 4GB and $599 for the 8GB.
The new iPhone is offered in green, blue, coral and several other colors. However, the iPhones all looked similar until the iPhone 7 plus which had two cameras on the back, a fingerprint lock and was larger overall.
When the iPhone X’s were released, the world was shocked, according to Forbes magazine. There was no home button. There was also a bunch of conspiracies following the new phone because it used facial recognition to unlock the phone rather than using one’s finger.
According to The Next Web, many people didn't want the phone because, “they didn't want the government to see you or recognize you.” However, people still bought the phone because of the camera quality and how useful it really was.
Then came the iPhone 11 and the iPhone 11 Pro. The iPhone 11 is the newest member of the Apple family and the most advanced by far. The iPhone apparently has a battery life that lasts all day, and it comes in the colors purple, green, yellow, white, black and red.
Sophomore Brodie Dial has the new iPhone and said, “I’m on my phone all day, and by the end of the day it’s only on 50 percent.”
“The iPhone has a back design that is precision milled and sculpted from a single piece of the toughest glass yet. There is also a water resistance for two meters for up to 30 minutes”, according to Apple.
The phones are powered with the latest silicon called the A13 chip and it succeeds the previous bionic chip that was in the 2018 models. It the "fastest CPU and GPU in a smartphone." CPU and GPU mean Central Processing Unit and Graphics Processing Unit.
These units are the soul of the phone. They help to power everything else.
The Bluetooth range is wider and more spaced out than the original phones. There is a new sensor that allows the phone to pick up someone’s location in 3D space and the facial recognition captures more angles than before. The phone is able to make out the owner’s features faster to unlock the phone at a faster speed.
The cameras on the iPhone 11 have a new dual lens system. It includes new sensors and a new ultra-wide-angle lens that provides a 120-degree field of view. With the iPhone 11 Pro, users get a triple lens system with wide, ultra-wide and telephoto lenses.
Sophomore Casey Muhlenthaler has the regular iPhone 11 and she said, “My favorite feature is the camera quality or having no home button.”
