The technology has advanced by leaps and bounds throughout all these years and this is something noticeable in the devices of the Cupertino company. This is also extrapolated to the Android operating system, although the improvement has not suddenly been so significant. It is precisely for this reason that it is worth exploring the path to the success of the iPhone.
The iPhone 6 started the revolution
The generations before Iphone 6 They did not enjoy extreme popularity like the current ones, except with the exception of the iPhone 5, which was the first to introduce Touch ID. However, it would be the following model that would become the iPhone with larger dimensions so far with a size of 5.5 inches and that I would bet on curved edges for its architecture.
It was also the first time that Apple introduced two phones from the same family. The storage capacity increased to 128 GB and was characterized by having a 1,810 mAh battery. Instead, the screen I used was an IPS panelwhich would continue until much later.
With the arrival of the iPhone 7 in 2016 we appreciate a performance evolutionsince it integrated the Apple A10 Fusion chip compared to the A8 that the iPhone 6 had. Home button became haptic, that is, it could not be pressed, but responded to tactile sensitivity. The internal memory became a maximum of 256 GB and the screen again reduced its size to 4.7 inches while maintaining a practically identical battery and equipped with the same IPS panel.
The most impressive evolution.
As of 2017, 5 years ago, it would be when we would begin to appreciate a drastic improvement compared to the previous ones. Although it is true that the iPhone 8 It is not the one to talk about evolution, since it maintained a screen under the same conditions and a battery with a lower capacity than that of the iPhone 7. The only innovation of this phone was the introduction of wireless chargingbut nothing more remarkable, above all, because he continued with the excellent photographic level that previous generations of Apple had shown.
However, it would be iPhone X the one that showed that the Cupertino company could dominate the market at will with a terminal of unquestionable quality and becoming the best iPhone in history until then. The design completely changed to be completely renewed and put aside the haptic button to offer a iPhone all screen with the exception of the top notch.
Also, increased size and weight of the device until reaching 5.8 inches and 174 grams, respectively. Two of the most significant advances at this time was the Face ID to achieve face unlock high security and OLED display to represent the content with much more striking colors and details. The battery also underwent an upgrade of up to 1,000 mAh to reach 2,716 mAh maximum capacity. Likewise, the arrival of the iPhone XS variant marked the beginning of Apple’s photographic dominance with a consistent improvement in low-light captures.
On the other hand, the iPhone 11 It came with a chip that is two generations ahead of the iPhone 10, so performance has improved remarkably in all aspects. An interesting quality is that he was the first to have a second ultra-wide camera and include night mode; while the Pro model did the same with a triple lens configuration and the iPhone 11 Pro Max with the best battery seen in an Apple phone.
Apple has stalled
Since the year 2020, with the landing of the series iPhone 12the American brand opted for a new version named as Mini, a compact device that continued to enjoy the power of the higher models. This was when 5G connectivity came into playAlthough it was also when Apple began reserving the best battery for Pro Max phones.
In 2021, Tim Cook’s company listened to user criticism regarding autonomy and improved both its general capacity and the iPhone 13 battery energy efficiency. A decisive addition for the camera was the cinema mode to obtain high-quality recordings and put the finishing touch to sensors that take perfect photos under any condition. The evolution in this generation occurred with the arrival of 120 Hz to the screens of the Pro and Pro Max variants.
Already in the middle of 2022, with the landing of the recent iPhone 14 familywe have appreciated a series of criticisms from the community towards Apple not only for the insignificant changes of the latter, but also by the price increase that they have suffered Most notable is the disappearance of the iPhone Mini to the detriment of the iPhone 14 Plus.
However, the standard variants of the phone were left without evolution and even maintained the same processor as the iPhone 13. They have been the versions of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max those that boast innovations, such as the Dynamic Island, a pill that changes shape to display content; a 48 MP camera for more detail; and the Always On Display screen that we had been seeing on Android for so long. So Apple’s evolution has stalled, so we just have to wait and see if they reverse the situation.
