Apple’s Secret iPhone Launch Team: The Event That Began It All

Steve Jobs was born February 24, 1955 in San Francisco, California .He was married Laurene  Powell. He had several children called Lisa (by Chrisann Brennan), Reed, Erin, Eve. Steve was the biological child of Abdulfattah Jandali and Joanne Schieble, he was later adopted by Paul Jobs and Clara Hagopian. During his high school years, Jobs worked summers at Hewlett-Packard and became partners with Steve Wozniak.

As an undergraduate, he studied physics, literature, and poetry at Reed College in Portland, Oregon. Formally, he only attended one semester there. However, he remained at Reed and crashed on friends’ sofas and audited courses that included a calligraphy class, which he attributes as being the reason Apple computers had such elegant typefaces. He pursued his education from Reeds College. He had won Awards and Honours in National Medal of Technology (with Steve Wozniak), Jefferson Award for Public Service, named the most powerful person in business by Fortune magazine, Inducted into the California Hall of Fame, inducted as a Disney Legend.

He died in October 5, 2011 in Palo Alto, California. He is best remembered as the co-founder of Apple Computers and playing a pioneering role in the development of personal computing. He teamed up with inventor Steve Wozniak to create one of the first ready-made PCs. Besides his legacy with Apple, Jobs was also a smart businessman who became a multimillionaire before the age of 30. In 1984, he founded NeXT computers. In 1986, he bought the computer graphics division of Lucas Film Ltd and started Pixar Animation Studios.

After leaving Oregon in 1974 to return to California, Jobs started working for Atari, an early pioneer in the manufacturing of personal computers. Jobs’ close friend Wozniak was also working for Atari. The future founders of Apple teamed up to design games for Atari computers.

Jobs and Wozniak proved their skills as hackers by designing a telephone blue box. A blue box was an electronic device that simulated a telephone operator’s dialling console and provided the user with free phone calls. Jobs spent plenty of time at Wozniak’s Homebrew Computer Club, a haven for computer geeks and a source of invaluable information about the field of personal computers.

Steve Wozniak

By the late 1970s, Jobs and Wozniak had learned enough to try their hand at building personal computers. Using Jobs’ family garage as a base of operation, the team produced 50 fully assembled computers that were sold to a local Mountain View electronics store called the Byte Shop. The sale encouraged the pair to start Apple Computer, Inc. on April 1, 1979.

The Apple Corporation was named after Jobs’ favourite fruit. The Apple logo was a representation of the fruit with a bite taken out of it. The bite represented a play on words: bite and byte.

Jobs co-invented the Apple I and Apple II computers together with Wozniak, who was the main designer, and others. The Apple II is considered to be one of the first commercially successful lines of personal computers. In 1984, Wozniak, Jobs, and others co-invented the Apple Macintosh computer, the first successful home computer with a mouse-driven graphical user interface. It was, however, based on (or, according to some sources, stolen from) the Xerox Alto, a concept machine built at the Xerox PARC research facility.

According to the Computer History Museum, the Alto included:

A mouse

.Removable data storage

.Networking

.A visual user interface

.Easy-to-use graphics software

.“What You See Is What You Get” (WYSIWYG) printing, with printed documents matching what users saw on screen.

.E-mail. Alto for the first time combined these and other now-familiar elements in one small computer.

During the early 1980s, Jobs controlled the business side of the Apple Corporation. Steve Wozniak was in charge of the design side. However, a power struggle with the board of directors led to Jobs leaving Apple in 1985.

NeXT

After leaving Apple, Jobs founded NeXT, a high-end computer company. Ironically, Apple bought NeXT in 1996 and Jobs returned to his old company to serve once more as its CEO from 1997 until his retirement in 2011.

The NeXT was an impressive workstation computer that sold poorly. The world’s first web browser was created on a NeXT, and the technology in NeXT software was transferred to the Macintosh and the iPhone.

Disney Pixar

In 1986, Jobs bought “The Graphics Group” from Lucas film’s computer graphics division for $10 million. The company was later renamed Pixar. At first, Jobs intended for Pixar to become a high-end graphics hardware developer, but that goal was never met. Pixar moved on to do what it now does best, which is make animated films. Jobs negotiated a deal to allow Pixar and Disney to collaborate on a number of animated projects that included the film “Toy Story.” In 2006, Disney bought Pixar from Jobs.

Expanding Apple

After Jobs returned to Apple as its CEO in 1997, Apple Computers had a renaissance in product development with the iMac, iPod, iPhone, iPad, and more.

Before his death, Jobs was listed as the inventor and/or co-inventor on 342 United States patents, with technologies ranging from computer and portable devices to user interfaces, speakers, keyboards, power adapters, staircases, clasps, sleeves, lanyards, and packages. His last patent was issued for the Mac OS X Dock user interface and was granted the day before his death.

Death

Steve Jobs died at his home in Palo Alto, California, on October 5, 2011. He had been ill for a long time with pancreatic cancer, which he had treated using alternative techniques.

Legacy

Steve Jobs was a true computer pioneer and entrepreneur whose impact is felt in almost every aspect of contemporary business, communication, and design. Jobs was absolutely dedicated to every detail of his products—according to some sources, he was obsessive—but the outcome can be seen in the sleek, user-friendly, future-facing designs of Apple products from the very start. It was Apple that placed the PC on every desk, provided digital tools for design and creativity, and pushed forward the ubiquitous smartphone which has, arguably, changed the ways in which humans think, create, and interact.

What we today know as ‘iPhone’ could have been named ‘iPad’. According to a latest revelation by Apple advertising lead Ken Segall, Apple had mulled over many names before it ended up calling its smartphone ‘iPhone’.

Ken Segall, at an event at the University of Arizona’s Department of Marketing, divulged details regarding the naming behind Apple’s popular smartphone iPhone. Before Apple resolved to call it ‘iPhone’, it had considered a few other names ‘iPad’, ‘Telepod’, ‘Mobi’, ‘Tripod’. While the iPad ended up being the name for Apple’s tablet PC, the name was considered to be used for the smartphone.

According to Segall, “Apple considered calling the device ‘Telepod’ because it sounded like a futuristic twist to the word ‘telephone’.” Apple had also thought of naming its smartphone ‘Mobi’ – a shortened version of the word ‘mobile’.

The report says, The name ‘Tripod’ “did not win out, it did make a big impact on Apple’s original presentation and marketing for the iPhone. ‘Tripod’ stems from the iPhone being a combination phone + iPod + Internet communications device.”

Prior to the iPhone, smartphones were often, bulky, unreliable, and prohibitively expensive. The iPhone was a game-changer. While its technology was state-of-the-art at the time, since more than 200 patents went into its original manufacture, there’s no pinpointing a single person as the iPhone’s inventor. Still, a few names—including Apple designers John Casey and Jonathan Ive—stand out as being instrumental in bringing Steve Jobs’ vision for a touchscreen smartphone to life.

iphone release: While Apple had produced the Newton Message Pad, a personal digital assistant (PDA) device, from 1993 to 1998, the first concept for a true iPhone-type device came about in 2000 when Apple designer John Casey sent some concept art around via an internal email for something he called the Telipod—a telephone and iPod combination.

The Telipod never made it into production but Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs did believe that cell phones with a touchscreen function and access to the Internet were the future of accessible information. Accordingly, Jobs set a team of engineers to tackle the project.

Apple’s First Smartphone

Early iphone Model

Apple’s first smartphone, the ROKR E1, was released on Sept. 7, 2005. It was the first mobile phone to use iTunes, the music-sharing software Apple had debuted in 2001. However, the ROKR was an Apple and Motorola collaboration, and Apple was not happy with Motorola’s contributions. Within a year, Apple discontinued support for the ROKR. On Jan. 9, 2007, Steve Jobs announced the new iPhone at the Macworld Convention. It went on sale on June 29, 2007.

What Made the iPhone So Special

iphone release: Apple’s chief design officer from 1992 to 2019, Jonathan Ive, was largely responsible for the look and feel of the iPhone. Born in Britain in February 1967, Ive was also the principal designer of the iMac, the titanium and aluminium PowerBook G4, MacBook, unibody MacBook Pro, iPod, iPhone, and iPad.

The first smartphone with no dedicated keypad for dialling, the iPhone was entirely a touchscreen device that broke new technological ground with its multitouch controls. In addition to being able to use the screen to select and use apps, users could scroll and zoom as well with a finger swipe.

The iPhone also introduced the accelerometer, a motion sensor that allowed the user to turn the phone sideways and have the display automatically rotate to suit. While it was not the first device to have apps or software add-ons, it was the first smartphone to manage the apps market successfully.

Siri

iphone release: The iPhone 4S was released with the addition of a personal assistant called Siri, a voice-controlled, artificial intelligence-based assistant that could not only perform numerous tasks for the user, it could also learn and adapt to better serve that user, as well. With the addition of Siri, the iPhone was no longer a mere phone or music player—it literally put an entire world of information at the user’s fingertips.

Waves of the Future

Apple iPhone X Unboxing!

Since it made its debut, Apple has continued to improve and update the iPhone. The iPhone 10 (also known as iPhone X), released in November 2017, is the first iPhone to use organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screen technology, wireless charging, and facial recognition technology to unlock the phone.

iphone release: In 2018, Apple released three versions of the iPhone X: iPhone Xs, iPhone X Max (a larger version of the Xs), and the budget-friendly iPhone Xr, all with improved camera technology that enables what Apple terms, “Smart HDR” (high dynamic range) photography. Going forward, Apple is expected to continue with OLED displays for its 2019 devices, and there are some rumours that the company plans to soon retire its earlier LCD (liquid crystal display) displays altogether.

Founded in a garage in 1976 by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne, Apple began as a personal computer pioneer that today makes everything from laptops to portable media players. Headquartered in Cupertino, California, the consumer electronics giant entered the smartphone market with the iPhone in 2007, and the tablet market with the iPad in 2010, and the smart watch market with the Apple Watch in 2014.

Apple’s latest mobile launch is the iPhone 11 Pro. The smartphone was launched in 10th September 2019. The phone comes with a 5.80-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1125 pixels by 2436 pixels at a PPI of 458 pixels per inch.

Benefits and Features

iphone release: The phone packs 64GB of internal storage cannot be expanded. As far as the cameras are concerned, the iPhone 11 Pro packs a 12-megapixel (f/1.8) + 12-megapixel (f/2.4) + 12-megapixel (f/2.0) primary camera on the rear and a 12-megapixel front shooter for selfies.

The iPhone 11 Pro runs iOS 13. It measures 144.00 x 71.40 x 8.10 (height x width x thickness) and weigh 188.00 grams.

The iPhone 11 Pro is a dual SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM and eSIM. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi standards supported, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, Lightning, 3G and 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks in India). Sensors on the phone include Face unlock, 3D face recognition, Compass Magnetometer, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Ambient light sensor, Gyroscope and Barometer.

The phone comes with a 5.80-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1125×2436 pixels at a pixel density of 458 pixels per inch (ppi) and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. Apple iPhone X is powered by a 2.39GHz hexa-core Apple A11 Bionic processor. It comes with 3GB of RAM

iphone release: The iPhone X, pronounced “iPhone 10,” was introduced at Apple’s September 2017 event as a classic “One more thing…” addition to the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus product line-up. The iPhone X has since been replaced by the iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max, and Apple has discontinued the device to focus on the newer iPhones.

Apple’s aim with the iPhone X was to create an iPhone that’s all display, blurring the line between physical object and experience. The 5.8-inch front screen melts into a highly polished curved-edge stainless steel band encircling a durable all-glass body available in two pearlescent finishes: Space Gray and Silver. Both feature a black front panel.

The edge-to-edge top-to-bottom Super Retina display adopts OLED technology for true-to-life colours, deep blacks, and a million-to-one contrast ratio. It features a 2436 x 1125 resolution and 458 pixels per inch. It supports HDR, wide colour, 3D Touch, and True Tone for adjusting the white balance of the display to match the ambient lighting.

At 5.8 inches diagonally, the iPhone X has a larger display than prior-generation iPhones, but with no bezels aside from a notch housing the camera and sensors, it fits comfortably in the hand. At 143.6mm tall by 70.9mm wide by 7.7mm deep, it’s not much bigger than an iPhone 8, and it’s smaller than an iPhone 8 Plus.

The glass body of the device is IP67 water and dust resistant and it enables support for inductive wireless charging. The iPhone X adopts the Qi wireless standard and can charge through the glass back using any Qi-certified charging accessory.

iphone release: With an edge-to-edge design, there is no room for a Home button, so the iPhone X adopts an updated user experience. A swipe up at the bottom of the screen brings up the Home screen, while a swipe and a hold brings up App Switcher. There’s a Tap to Wake feature for looking at notifications, the side button can be pressed and held to activate Siri, and the Control Centre is accessed by swiping downwards from the top status bar.

No Home button also means no Touch ID, so unlocking the device is done with a Face ID facial recognition system. Face ID uses the TrueDepth front-facing camera system to create a 3D map of your face that’s used much like a fingerprint for unlocking the iPhone, authenticating Apple Pay purchases, making App Store purchases, and accessing pass code protected apps.

Face ID uses infrared camera technology so it works in the dark. It also uses machine learning and detects your face with hats, glasses, beards, and other objects obscuring your face. Because it uses a 3D map of the face, Face ID cannot be fooled by photos, masks, or other facial replicas. As an added layer of security, Face ID is “attention aware” and unlocks your iPhone only when you’re looking at it.

Face ID is powered by a state of the art dual-core neural engine built into the A11 Bionic chip, data stored in the Secure Enclave and all processing done on-device. The A11 chip includes a total of six cores, with two performance cores and four high-efficiency cores, including the neural engine.

The performance cores are 25 percent faster than the A10, while the high-efficiency cores are 70 percent faster. An upgraded GPU is 30 percent faster, and there’s 3GB of RAM in the device.

iphone release: With a second-generation Apple-designed performance controller, all six cores in the A11 chip can be accessed at the same time, resulting in much improved performance, especially when it comes to multi-threaded workloads. The A11 also features a faster GPU, an Apple-designed image signal processor and video encoder, an A11 motion coprocessor, and the Secure Enclave for Face ID.

With efficiency improvements enabled by the A11 Bionic chip, the iPhone X offers two hours more battery life than the iPhone 7, but the battery falls short of the battery in the iPhone 7 Plus.

The same 7-megapixel TrueDepth camera that powers Face ID enables a feature called Animoji. Animoji are 3D emoji able to mimic your facial expressions. The TrueDepth camera tracks more than 50 facial muscle movements and translates them to the Animoji, which can be used in the Messages app.

Apple’s TrueDepth camera also introduces Portrait Mode for the front-facing camera and enables Portrait Lighting, a feature for adjusting the lighting in a portrait image taken by the front or rear camera.

At the rear, the iPhone X features a vertical 12-megapixel dual-lens camera arrangement with an f1.8 wide angle lens and an f/2.4 aperture telephoto lens. Both lenses support optical image stabilization and have improvements like an updated colour filter, deeper pixels, better low light zoom, and improved video stabilization. Between the two cameras, there’s a quad-LED True Tone flash.

With the individually calibrated cameras, an updated accelerometer and gyroscope, tuning for ARKit, and the powerful A11 chip, the iPhone X has been designed for a better augmented reality experience. Developers can take advantage of both the rear camera and the TrueDepth camera to create unique AR apps with unparalleled face tracking capabilities.
