Before iPhones came into the market in 2007, the best phones were made by Nokia and Blackberry. Since that time, iPhones have become the basis of what we call a smartphone. Apple has continually improved on its iPhones, releasing products that significantly changed how people around the world obtain information, communicate, and entertain themselves.
As of 2020, there were more than 1 billion active iPhone users around the world. In the first quarter of 2021, Apple shipped 55.2 million iPhones. The whole of 2020, the total number of iPhones shipped stood at 206.1 million headsets. The figures were 7.9% higher compared to the previous year. These staggering figures reaffirm the popularity of iPhones.
The iPhone has become part of our lives, and it has replaced a wide range of other devices. For instance, one can use an iPhone instead of using a personal communicator with the calendar and notes. With an iPhone, no one needs an alarm clock. It has also replaced the popular in-car GPS device, flashlights, MP3 players, and many more.
