Either from the point of view of performance and influence on the market, iPhone 4 and iPhone 6s today can not be compared, but the former has shocked the world, but it is difficult to catch up with the younger generation. June 7, 2010 morning, when he was Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced the new design at the annual WWDC conference, and added a number of revolutionary features of iPhone 4.
Nostalgic summer of 2010
Unconsciously, from the generation of the classic iPhone 4 has been released in the past six years full time. During these six years, Apple still in accordance with the annual rate of the iPhone product line is updated (in addition to this spring's iPhone SE), Apple CEO Steve Jobs also made into a Cook. Either from the point of view of performance and influence on the market, iPhone 4 and iPhone 6s today can not be compared, but the former has shocked the world, but it is difficult to catch up with the younger generation.
To 2007, Apple re-invented the mobile phone
- 2008, Apple for the iPhone adds 3G network connectivity
- 2009, iPhone's raised the rate twice
To 2010, we will meet after the iPhone launch the most significant leap
Above this four, before the iPhone 4 was unveiled Jobs said. In the United States too western local time June 7, 2010 morning, when he was Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced the new design at the annual WWDC conference, and added a number of revolutionary features of iPhone 4 . Although this phone has been exposed before, but developers as well as the scene of the media reported that the iPhone 4 still warm applause.
"Once again, change everything," and this along with the iPhone 4 together is born the slogan now sounds still magnanimously. Because no matter which side, when the iPhone 4 in every respect almost ahead of the industry.
Classic can then copy it
Glass body, Retina display, FaceTime, 500-megapixel camera, these are the main highlights of iPhone 4. But if you want to say in the selection of one of the most important, and that is newly designed with the edges of flat glass body. Because until now, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s design is still considered by many designers since the launch of the iPhone classic. Although the iPhone-- including the latest iPhone 6s and the year before bursting with popularity of iPhone 6, but that milestone touched gone.
For before the iPhone 4 used by the edges and there is interest in graphic design style not only designers, in fact, Apple itself has not abandoned this idea, because there are patent documents, Apple has been in the development of a solution that provides intelligent phone metal frame flat shiny new method while sharp edges. Although Apple did not mention any iPhone 4 related words in a file, but the file description from the point of view Apple still want to make this style one day be able to meet again with the world.
Jobs at WWDC iPhone 4 will be designed as "a beautiful old Leica camera," as the foreign media in the evaluation of this phone is also very much agree with this view. Compared to the iPhone 3G and 3GS arc, plastic feel, silver side, Apple's new iPhone body and the surface becomes far richer detail and more complex. From design aesthetics to the manufacturing process, Jonathan took his team to subvert the expectations of the outside world on an iPhone, bringing Dieter Rams for Braun retro - future fashion design.
Foreign media that year, iPhone 4 in industrial design throw off the market almost all smart phones. It's like those very expensive products, such as Mobiado and Vertu, but the design better. And iPhone 4 not only looks good, material is also used in extraordinary feel. Engadget has lamented: the days we started testing, very worried about it has been dropped or lost. This is because the iPhone 4 is more or less holding, with the all so beautiful.
We look forward to the next "iPhone 4"
"Someone might have seen it, but believe me, no one really seen it," Jobs released iPhone 4 when opening such a joke, alluding to when the "Bar" incident.
Year's event is this: Apple engineers will first prototype lost in a bar, then this is Lost iPhone 4 outside the station was bought by Gizmodo and given exposure, and Gizmodo click-through rate soared since then. I had let the matter incensed Jobs, Apple also because this event blocked Gizmodo: prohibited personnel associated with the site and enter the WWDC or other new conference site.
Not only that, Gizmodo leaks iPhone 4 because the issue was CES (Consumer Electronics Show) censorship, the site with Apple before the "hatred" so be forged. But in the 2014 autumn conference, Apple through a piece of paper to defuse the hatred between the two sides: Gizmodo become Apple iPhone 6 conference was officially invite the media. This is since after 2009, Gizmodo first time Apple's new conference.
May 2015, Apple executives are changed, former senior vice president of industrial design Jonathan Ive promoted its chief design officer for Apple, which is probably good news for users who want to see the new design for the iPhone. Because Jonathan promotion at the same time, his original position of director of industrial design also go to the "iPhone 4" Father Richard Ho Worth (Richard Howarth) body.
There are some comments that, to some extent iPhone design has reached its peak, and a rounded rectangular shape of the device, and not too variable manner. Today's mobile phones are basically on the outer border of the screen pattern or tricks, more unique and stand out Samsung should double curved screen design, so many people look forward to Apple can reshape a design. Combined with the tenth anniversary of the Imagination iPhone launch next year, we can not expect a surprise?
