Introduction

Apple's famous line of iPhones needs little introduction. Since the 2007 debut of the original iPhone, these touchscreen smartphones have changed the face of the mobile industry. Combining striking physical design and excellent build quality with highly flexible functionality and an intuitive interface, each successive generation of iPhones has proved to be wildly popular.

There are currently four iPhone models available, with variations of each available offering more or less storage space. The two latest iPhones, the Apple iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S, are currently available in 64, 32, or 16 Gigabyte versions in white or black. The iPhone 4, which preceded the 4S, is available in 32 or 16 GB versions in white or black. Finally, the iPhone 3G S is the oldest iPhone still widely distributed, currently available only in an 8GB black edition.

iPhone 5

The iPhone 5 is the most advanced iPhone currently available. Its most visible diversion from earlier models is its expanded 4” Retina Display, which has a widescreen aspect ratio of around 16:9. To accommodate the larger screen, the iPhone 5 has a new physical design, featuring a glass front panel and a two-tone aluminium back.

Internal upgrades are wide-ranging. The A6 processor offers twice the CPU and graphics performance of the A5 that the iPhone 4S is equipped with, and the 8 megapixel camera has been upgraded to offer improved low-light performance and a panorama mode.

iPhone 4S

The iPhone 4S preceded the iPhone 5 and was released in 2011. While retaining the acclaimed stainless steel and glass exterior design of the iPhone 4, the 4S introduced a host of upgraded hardware and software features.

Prominent among the upgrades of the iPhone 4S was its A5 dual-core processor, which offers twice the power of the preceding A4 and seven times faster graphics. The iPhone 4S was the first iPhone to feature a significantly upgraded 8 megapixel camera with redesigned optics and the unique personal assistant Siri.

iPhone 4

The Apple iPhone 4 is the 4th generation iPhone and was originally released in 2010. Although superseded by the iPhone 4S in 2011 and the iPhone 5 in 2012, the iPhone 4 remains one of the most popular and best selling handsets on the market thanks to a timeless design and excellent hardware and software features.

The iPhone 4 was the first iPhone to feature Apple's FaceTime video calling feature and also the first to boast Apple's high-resolution 'Retina Display'. The iPhone 4 supports the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system, iOS 5.1, and offers an excellent iPhone experience at a lower price point than the top-of-the-range iPhone 4S.

iPhone 3G S

The iPhone 3G S was initially introduced in 2009 and is the predecessor to the iPhone 4. As the oldest iPhone model still in widespread distribution, the iPhone 3G S represents the most affordable option for those in the market for a new iPhone.

Despite its age, the iPhone 3G S continues to offer solid performance and an enviable range of features, including access to the wide range of apps on Apple's App Store. While it lacks some of the more sophisticated features and advanced hardware of its successors, the iPhone 3G S remains a highly capable and desirable smartphone at a more modest price point.
