Why do we need the iPhone?
Narration An iPhone functions as a camera phone including text messaging and visual voicemail, a portable media player, and an Internet client, with e-mail, web browsing, and Wi-Fi connectivity. The user interface is built around the device's multi-touch screen, including a virtual keyboard rather than a physical one. Third-party applications are available from the App Store, which launched in mid-2008 and now has well over 200,000] "apps" approved by Apple. These apps have diverse functionalities, including games, reference GPS navigation, social networking, and advertising for television shows, films, and celebrities. The iPhone helps to streamline your life! The iPhone actually provides access to three electronic devices in one; cell phone, iPod or media device and PDA

Research Podcast & PowerPoint
In this section we will learn about the research that went into the development of the iPhone including;
(a) organization/people who developed the innovation,
(b) findings of their research,
(c) “lead thinkers,” for the innovation
d) how they convinced a manufacturer to produce the innovation
Organization that Developed the iPhone Podcast & PowerPoint
Development of the iPhone began with Apple CEO Steve Jobs' direction that Apple engineers investigate touchscreens. Apple created the device during a secretive and unprecedented collaboration with AT&T Mobility—Cingular Wireless at the time—at an estimated development cost of US $150 million over thirty months. Apple rejected the "design by committee" approach that had yielded the Motorola ROKR E1, a largely unsuccessful collaboration with Motorola. Instead, Cingular gave Apple the liberty to develop the iPhone's hardware and software in-house
Research Findings Podcast & PowerPoint Slide
There have been four generations of iPhone hardware, and they have been accompanied by four major releases of iOS (formerly iPhone OS).
The original iPhone established design precedents like screen size and button placement that have persisted through all models.
The iPhone 3G brought 3G cellular network capabilities and A-GPS location.
The iPhone 3GS brought a compass, faster processor, and higher resolution camera, including video.
The iPhone 4 has two cameras for FaceTime video calling and a higher resolution display. It was released on June 24, 2010 in certain countries and is in the process of being released worldwide.

Development Problems Podcast & PowerPoint
Critical iPhone 4 Issues
Yellow Display - iPhone’s “Retina Display” is susceptible to a yellow discoloration, either as a thin line of yellow or as a circular tint.
Reception - holding the new iPhone by its sides can decrease reception quality. The metal bands of the iPhone 4 also act as antennas for the device.
Intended Market Podcast & PowerPoint The intended market for the iPhone 4 is any Cell phone user who also would like to have access to three technologies in one package including the capabilty to surf the net, video phone, GPS as wall as access to thousands of applications.
Accessibility Podcast & PowerPoint
The iPhone can enlarge text to make it more accessible for vision-impaired users, and can accommodate hearing-impaired users with closed captioning and external TTY devices. The iPhone 3GS also features white on black mode, Voice Over (a screen reader), and zooming for impaired vision, and mono audio for limited hearing in one ear. Apple regularly publishes Voluntary Product Accessibility Templates which explicitly state compliance with the US regulation "Section 508".
Production Release, Manufacturing & Packaging Podcast & PowerPoint
Jobs unveiled the first iPhone to the public on January 9, 2007 in a keynote address. Apple was required to file for operating permits with the FCC, but since such filings are made available to the public, the announcement came months before the iPhone had received approval. The iPhone went on sale in the United States on June 29, 2007, at 6:00 pm local time, while hundreds of customers lined up outside the stores nationwide. The original iPhone was made available in the UK, France, and Germany in November 2007, and Ireland and Austria in the spring of 2008.
On July 11, 2008, Apple released the iPhone 3G in twenty-two countries, including the original six.Apple has since released the iPhone 3G in upwards of eighty countries and territories. Apple announced the iPhone 3GS on June 8, 2009, along with plans to release it later in June, July, and August, starting with the U.S., Canada and major European countries on June 19. Many would-be users have objected to the iPhone's cost,and 40% of users have household incomes over 100,000 US$. In an attempt to gain a wider market, Apple has retained the 8 GB iPhone 3G at a lower price point. This is the latest of several price reductions since the iPhone's release in 2007; it now[ when ? ] sells for one-sixth of the price of the original 8 GB iPhone when it first became available. In the U.S., it now[ when ? ] costs $99, down from $599, although it requires a two-year contract and a SIM lock.
Apple sold 6.1 million original iPhone units over five quarters. The company sold 3.8 million iPhone 3G units in the second quarter of fiscal 2009, ending March 2009, and 12.6 million 3G and 3GS combined, totaling 33.75 million iPhones sold to date (Q4 2009).
