iPhone: The First Five Years


It’s hard to believe that the iPhone just celebrated its fifth birthday. In fact, life before the iPhone feels like a distant memory. The sleek design, smooth touch interface and its smartphone capabilities soon became an industry standard. As we remember how far the iPhone has come, we can’t help but wonder (daydream) what Apple has up its sleeve for the rumored iPhone 5 release later this year. Only time will tell.
