Where were we before the first iPhone?
Without a doubt, our generation would be labeled the “smartphone generation,” but which smartphone suits you best?
As an avid iPhone user, I am definitely hooked. This year, I bought my second iPhone, the iPhone 5C. This newly improved iPhone has an interesting trait as it is plastic, unlike every other iPhone that has come out.
Like anyone else, I tend to drop my phone just about every other day, so the new plastic iPhone comes in handy as I no longer have to worry about my glass shattered phone, which is an obvious perk.
Much of the time, I do my research for projects, papers and other school work on my iPhone without the thought of viruses even crossing my mind. iPhones come with their own software, IOS, which guarantees virus free internet browsing.
A bonus to drivers or anyone who needs a hands-free device is a feature called Siri, which is an iPhone only feature. Siri allows iPhone users to speak what they need, whether it be directions, time, calling, etc. This feature is fairly accurate in terms of picking up what the iPhone user is saying or demanding. It allows iPhone users to receive the information they need quickly and safely while driving.
Last but not least, my favorite part of the iPhone is the application store. When handed an iPhone, many feel like they are being handed unlimited tickets to arcade games.
As an iPhone user, we are able to get first picks on our favorite apps because they are sent to the iPhone store before they are sent to the Android market.
Another perk of the iPhone application store is we never have to worry if our apps are safe to download or not. iPhone apps are put up for the users by Apple, whereas Android apps are put up by third party users.
The iPhone is sensational technology that allows users to experience a level of genius.
