The Making of iPhone 5 : Evolution and Timeline Of iPhones


This Infographic is courtesy Dusan Belic from IntoMobile and you can see the full infographic below this story.  This data shows the iPhone evolution from the first iPhone back in January 2007 and Beyond. Starting then with the original iPhone,iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and the as yet unreleased iPhone 5.

The infographic shows various categories for all the iPhone models including the processor, display, connectivity, camera, apps and more and it shows how far Apple has progressed with the iPhone in a relatively short space of time. For example the processor of the first iPhone was a 412MHz ARM 11 and by the iPhone 4 that had evolved to a 1GHz A4 processor. The iPhone 5 expected processor is shown as a 1GHz A5 dual-core processor.

The camera  has moved up, from a 2-megapixel fixed-focus shooter on the original iPhone, moving to an auto-focus 3.2-megapixel on the iPhone 3GS and what is predicted to be an 8-megapixel auto-focus for the iPhone 5. When the initial iPhone was first announced back in 2007 there were no apps However,  post the iPhone 3GS in 2009 there were 50,000 apps available and by October 2011, when we expect to see the iPhone 5 launched, there will be a staggering 500,000+ apps available.

Developers Preference On Mobile Apps

Flurry (mobile analytics firm) tracks the activity of 45,000 developers who have built 90,000 different applications. Every time a developer starts a new project, Flurry knows which platform the developer is working on.
Last week, Apple reported that it had sold a cumulative 200 million iOS devices. Currently the App Store contains more than 425,000 apps, with total downloads surpassing 15 billion. From the developer’s point of view, the most attractive aspect of the iOS consumer audience is that they all have credit cards on file with iTunes. This means 100% of them can seamlessly pay for apps and in-app purchases. All told, the App Store offers a powerful business opportunity to developers and has attracted leading mobile developer support

As you can see in this chart, developers started fewer Android projects in the second quarter of the year than the first. Flurry speculates the change was driven by the Verizon iPhone and the popularity of the iPad 2.
