Although introduced by Steve Jobs as a groundbreaking mobile phone and Internet communication device, the original iPhone had unexpected truths.
Iphone is no longer a strange name to many people. With continuous improvement and reputation, this is a phone brand that makes people and families love. Although known as a smartphone device with many features to serve people, not everyone knows that the first iPhone has many limitations compared to later versions. First, there’s the copy/paste feature that wasn’t available with the first iPhones.
At the time of the launch of the first products of this brand, many smartphone users only liked the “defective apple” house because of the lack of the important copy / paste function. Although Apple has made this less necessary with enhanced sharing between apps, this shortcoming is still quite a serious limitation and annoying for users. Also, browsing the web on phones at the time was a mess as most mobile browsers on desktop versions of websites were inherently heavy, unsuitable with little scaled graphics or completely removed.
Not to mention, mobile mail applications also face similar limitations that make surfing the web and sending mail a disappointing job, without much novelty or breakthrough. In particular, besides web browsing and mail, touch screen keyboards were also controversial at the time as mobile phones at the time were based on physical keyboards.
Although many people believed that Apple would get rid of it, thanks to its advanced autocorrect algorithm as well as smart user interface features, it has helped “apple” to convince users. , because there is no App Store and YouTube is not optimized for iPhone, Apple decided to build its own YouTube app and bring it to iPhone, which allows users to browse, search, watch and share YouTube videos .
Not only that, image-related factors such as not supporting video recording or the front camera or messages without images made the original iPhone very limited. Specifically, the 2 MP camera on the iPhone can take dozens of photos, but the hardware can’t meet the task of recording standard resolution videos and there is no front camera.
Furthermore, although the SMS app on early iPhones could present text message conversations in a nice chat bubble view, it lacked support for a multimedia messaging service called MMS inherently allows users to attach videos and images. In terms of audio, the original iPhone was limited to a mono headset configuration, designed for making calls, not listening to music. At that time, before AirPods appeared, Apple created its own mono Bluetooth headset and became a major revolution with tight iPhone integration.
The advantage after improvement is the compactness, which comes with a special USB-to-Dock Connector cable that allows users to seamlessly pair and charge with iPhone, helping to display the charging status and battery level of the headset on the device. screen. Finally, having its roots in the iPod, the iPhone is akin to an iPod with the ability to sync with iTunes to download any content. At the time, iTunes was also a means of transferring data such as contacts and calendars from a Mac or PC to an iPhone.
