29 June 2017

Apple Inc's iPhone turns 10th Anniversary on Thursday. Evoking memories of a rocky start for the device that ended up doing most to start the smartphone revolution and stirring interest in where it will go from here. >>> CNET EDITOR-IN-CHIEF,  LINDSEY TURRENTINE <<< "It essentially has to overcome itself, it has to continue to have a reason for people to buy new iPhones because as the form factor kind of slows down a little bit in its evolution, there's nothing to revolutionary about what we can do with these rectangles that we carry around. There cameras have gotten better and better to the point that it's hard to best them, it's going to be hard for people to want to buy new iPhones if they're still happy with what they have."  According to data from eMarketer, more than 2 billion people now have smartphones.
