The iPhone is the smartphone that changed the world. Its revolutionary design defined the way we interact with a touch screen using Multi-Touch and it showed how apps can be distributed in a seamless manner through an App Store.
In case you didn’t know, the iPhone was first released exactly 10 years ago on 29 June 2007 after it was first announced at Macworld on 9 January 2007. At that time, the first gen iPhone was offered in two options: a 4GB option at US$499 (RM1,721 in 2007) and an 8GB option at US$599 (RM2,066 in 2007) on a two year contract with Cingular in the US.
Now is probably the best time to pick up an iPhone 6s Plus. Retailer SenHeng is now offering RM700 off its official retail price and you can get an iPhone 6s Plus 32GB at only RM2,499. That’s a discount about 22% off.
It took a while but it’s finally here. After opening up to all Android (non-Galaxy) devices, the latest Samsung smartwatches and fitness band are now compatible on Apple’s iOS.
Today, the 9th of January 2017, marks 10 years since Apple introduced the first iPhone ever — though the actual device was put up for sale on the 29th of June 2007. In a press release commemorating this momentous occasion, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced that the “best is yet to come”.
Apple has just rolled out a new iOS 10.2 update which lets you express yourself in hundreds of new emojis. It is about 362MB in size and it is advisable to download this through an unmetered WiFi connection.
Apple has confirmed that several iPhone 6s units are having a battery defect which causes it to shut down unexpectedly. When the announcement was made, there’s no way to check if your unit is affected and you’re required to check with your nearest Apple service centre on ground. Now Apple has made it easier and you can check it online.
Apple has acknowledged an issue with the iPhone 6s where it may shut down unexpectedly. If you’re having the same issue, you could be entitled for a free battery replacement.
There aren’t many technological revolutions quite like Apple‘s original iPhone. It was so radical and revolutionary that it ushered on an entire generation of new devices that we now probably couldn’t live without.
That was almost a decade ago and Apple’s idea of the iPhone has changed over 10 different iterations. So, with the launch of the brand new iPhone 7, we thought we’d take a quick look back at one of the most storied smartphones in the world.

Before the iPhone 7 goes on sale globally this Friday, the latest iOS 10 is rolling out now to existing devices. This is their largest update yet with a new lock screen with quick camera launch, improved Force Touch functionality and revamped native apps.
Ah, the iPhone 7. Apple’s “best iPhone ever”. It is funny that they always say that because they’re realistically not going to make a worse iPhone right? At least they’re not going to say it’s worse than the older one even if it is.
Still, the iPhone 7 represented a lot of firsts for the tech giant. However, despite the launch of Apple’s most stunning iPhone ever, I honestly don’t think that it is the biggest (or indeed best) news from the launch.
Hear me out.
