Why iPhone ?
•1. Every detail has been considered: It’s
nearly impossible to make a device so thin

10 hours of video playback.
4. Millions of ways to be entertained: The
more apps, music, movies, and TV shows

there’s almost no limit to what iPhone can
do. With iPhone, all that content comes
from one source: Apple.

you do every day.
