History of iOS

  • Published on Sep 14, 2018
  • iOS is a mobile operating system that Apple created for use on their iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Now iOS is one of the world's most popular mobile operating systems despite only running on Apple’s own hardware. Compare this to the Android mobile operating system, which is licensed by Google to various hardware manufacturers and wireless carriers. Now the debate over which approach is better is a topic we’re not getting into today, because in this video, we’re going to focus on the history of iOS and its development from 2007 to 2018.

    The companies which took the iPhone seriously took off and the one's that didn't died. This product changed the world forever. Smartphones have put computers in the hands of more people than even Microsoft arguably.

    Wow funny how when Steve job was around Apple actually listened to customers. It makes me wonder how Steve would think of Apple today with $599 back screen replacements, $7 dongles, s devices instead of a new device that literally is the same phone with a better battery and more storage. And what seems like a lack of commitment to change. Apple had blackberry which was years behind. Now its closest competitors almost all have the same if not better os. Where is the ambition!

    Until today maps is still not that useful than google maps. We used it to track places but points it out wrong. So we were like a little lost.

    umm..two things:
    1- Antennagate was a design flaw, otherwise you wouldn't have Steve Jobs rushingly stating "Fools, you're holding it wrong!!"
    2- Scott Forstall was FIRED from Apple BECAUSE of the Maps Fiasco, he did not just "leave" because of the "heated internal debate over Tim Cook's apology.."
    Please brush up your whitewashing skills :)

      Redstone Nguyễn - RedGreenBlue123 good to know someone who already upgraded his/hers IPad. Well, I was taking months to think if I upgrade from iOS 11 to 12 in my iPad Mini 2, but if you said it’s bad, then I will not upgrade.
