Evolution of Apple iPhones



iPhone 5, 5c and 5s

The iPhone 5 models are all the same size. The 5 comes in different colors than the 5c. The main difference in their appeal is the home buttons. The iPhone 5 and 5c both have “normal” home buttons, but the iPhone 5S has a  fingerprint home button.

iPhone SE

The iphone SE is a smaller version of the Apple iphone 6. The SE still is capable of providing the technology that the iphone 6 does, just in the size of the 5 models.

Iphone 8 and 8 Plus:

The camera has had many advances including the enhancement of portrait mode. Portrait mode now has realistic 3d lighting effects. There is now wireless charging. The main difference between the two phones are the size.

Iphone X:

The Iphone X  has a borderless, OLED screen, wireless charging and facial recognition cameras that allow you into your phone. It now includes a new screen called a Super Retina display. Instead of a home button users will tap the phone to go to the home screen.


Overall, technology has revolutionized a lot. As you can see in the slideshow, a lot of features have been added as new models are being invented. Starting at the 7/7 plus there is now no headphone jack and it is water resistant. Now, the iphone X has no home screen button. These features were never on earlier versions of iphones until technology became more enhance.. Who knows, will the generation of iphones continue or will there be something much more extravagant that has flexible screens and unlimited battery?
