The first iPhone was released in January 2007 and how it has become so popular is really astounding even though today it is taken for granted. Although it was not the first smart phone invented it really took over the market in the early years before android competitors like Samsung caught up to them. One major thing the iPhone did was give everyone access to the internet on the move. This then paved the way for apps like Facebook and Instagram amongst hundreds of other hugely popular apps. Not only did the iPhone bring the internet to people while mobile but it also gave access to a camera which has never so easily been accessed before.
Even on the now older models of iPhone like the iPhone 6S the camera is still high quality. These are still popular models as many people buy refurbished iPhone’s from companies like refurbishediphones.ie to escape the clutches of expensive phone networks and their contracts. Once everyone had access to such a high quality camera in the phone that can be accessed in seconds it meant that history will never be the same. Every little event is being recorded. Everything from music concerts to nights out with friends and negative things like fights are also recorded and highly viewed on Youtube.
From here on in we will have a record of almost anything where as since the start of human history we have only ever gone on word of mouth and old texts as well as some old pictures in places like Egypt. Not only will history be recorded at every step but peoples lives have changed. Whole new industries have been created and even the way people work.
Media consumption is at an all time high and many people exceed 50GB’s of data each month. This is a crazy amount of content. Although it is good for history it can still negatively impact peoples lives although there is no going back now.
