 10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About the iPhone

10 things what you probably didn’t know about the iPhone:

1. The first iPhone was invented in 1983! Naturally, this wasn’t anything like the rectangular cell phone we know today. It was a land line phone with, instead of a touch screen, a built in stylus controlled interface.

2. In 2013, the iPhone5 is faster than desktop computers from 10 years ago.

3. One third of U.S. High School students now have iPhones.

4. After just five years, the iPhone is now available in over 100 countries.

5. In 2012, Apple sold 125.000.000 Iphones.

6. iPhones can survive falls of over 13,000 feet. A skydiver lost his iPhone 4 in midair after jumping from 13,500 feet. Using a GPS tracking app, Jarrod McKinney was able to locate his runaway phone a half mile away on top of a building. Thankfully the phone landed on a building and not on a person’s head, or McKinney would be in a lot of trouble. The screen was cracked, but not only was he able to track it down, he was also still able to answer incoming calls with it!
7. Apple’s App Store has sold 50 billion apps.

8. All advertisements for the iPhone show a time of 9:42.

9. Apple currently has 1298 mobile patents.
