Steve Jobs once said, “Every once in awhile a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything.
Apple’s been very fortunate in that it’s introduced a few of these.”
Arguably, Apple’s most iconic product – the iPhone, which turned 10 recently – seems to epitomise this, with consumers buying more than a million Apple smartphones to date.
The impact the iPhone has had on people’s everyday lives, and as a revolutionary technology in itself, has allowed companies to jump on the smartphone bandwagon.
It also catalysed the growth of social media platforms including Facebook and Twitter.
While Apple has become the dominant player on the market, many people tend to forget that they weren’t the first who looked to combine the internet with mobile services.
