iOS Visual History Specs and Features

  1. 1. IOS VISUAL HISTORY By Verge Staff via Presentation Created by App Developers at Cygnis Media
  3. 3. IOS  HISTORY Apple's Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone to the world on January 9th, 2007. In the five-plus years since then, the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch have literally redefined the entire world of mobile computing. That world is moving so quickly that iOS is already amongst the older mobile operating systems in active development today.
  4. 4. IOS ACTUALLY BEGAN LIFE WITH A DIFFERENT NAME: OS X  During the original iPhone announcement, Apple touted that it ran on the same Unix core as Mac OS X and that it used many of the same tools. However, it was clear even then that while there may be some shared elements between OS X and this new phone OS, it was a different-enough beast to warrant its own branding. When the original iPhone launched, the OS was called "iPhone OS" and it kept that name for four years, only changing to iOS with the release of iOS 4 in June of 2010. For the sake of simplicity (and because it's a muchless awkward phrase), I'm going to indulge in a little revisionist history here and refer to all versions of the operating system as "iOS" in this piece.

  15. 15. WHAT'S NEXT FOR IOS?  In the six years since iOS was unveiled, we've seen the conversation move from "Is this a true smartphone?" to "Can this replace a computer?" That change is a testament not just to the march of technological progress, but to Apple's ability to reinvent its operating system over the years. Reporting by Dieter Bohn and Aaron Souppouris.
