There’s a video on YouTube making the rounds that shows the different speeds of all the different iPhone models that have come out over the years.
It was put together by Everything Apple Pro, a great blog for keeping up to date on classic and modern Apple products – especially the iPhone.
The video is great, but we also wanted to break down some of the facts about the various iPhones that have come out over the years.
More on All the Apple iPhones
Here’s a look at some of the milestones that Apple iPhones have made over the years.
First to Market – Back in 2007, the idea of a smartphone was relatively new. Then the first iPhone – back on 2G networks – was released. People were amazed by the phone and it was a huge hit when it came to sales.
First 3G – The first 3G compatible iPhone had come a long way since the original version. It’s not as fast as the current iPhone 5, of course, but it was one of the fastest on the market when it was first released.
The iPhone 4 – What seems like only yesterday, the iPhone 4 series was released, with the introduction of Siri and a lot faster phone – not to mention better battery life and more stability.
New iPhone 5S – The iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S aren’t very different when it comes to speed. The latter comes in the gold color everyone wants, but when it comes to speed you don’t really need to upgrade your iPhone 5, which is definitely the fastest of the bunch.
iPhone 5S Review
Quite a few reviews of the new iPhone 5S exist online, so we’re just going to give you some of the specifics really quickly so you can make up your own mind.
Better Siri – Since its introduction, Siri has had a lot of improvements. While the search assistant still had some oddities – like asking what happens on July 27, 2014 – but it’s still very useful in a lot of different situations.
Stable Maps – The maps app in the iPhone 4 was laughable and a real pain, but Apple has fixed a lot of the problems and the maps in the iPhone 5S are reliable and responsive in most situations.
Better Screen – The screen in the iPhone 5S is top notch. While not the largest screen available, iOS does a pretty good job of utilizing the available screen space on the phone. And this is all that really matters.
