It is no secret that, since the release of the first Apple iPhone in 2007 to the release of the iPhone 4S in 2011, the smartphone industry has changed tremendously – along with communication in modern society.

That being said, it is hard to believe just how far the iPhone has evolved in just the past 5 years. A timeline of the iPhone’s evolution (posted below) was recently published by toptienmobiel.nl that presents a lot of information regarding the evolution of the iPhone, the technologies used to create the iPhone, the number of applications available for the iPhone and the number of iPhone users.
