THE iPHONE. SIDNEY ALEXANDRIA MINOR 1 1 3 1 3 1 1 1 3 5 History H The Physics
& How It Works P U Uses Who invented the iPhone? Steve Jobs What is the history? In January of 2007, Apple announced that they would enter into the cellular market. In the same year in the month of June, Apple released the first iPhone. Steve Jobs described it as a wide-screen iPod with hand controls, a mobile phone, & an Internet communication device.

Ever since 2007, Apple has made many changes and improvements to the function of the iPhone. Some changes are simple bug fixes that require updates; whereas, the major changes produced the next new iPhone.

These changes have lead to the creations of the iPhone 2, iPhone 3, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, and the iPhone 5. The iPhone The iPhone 2 The iPhone 3 The iPhone 4 The iPhone 4S The iPhone 5 Physics Concepts: The iPhone uses a number of different physics concepts.

The main physics concept involved with cell phones are microwaves which are used by phones to carry data between the phone and the transceiver. The transceivers make sure that you can make voice, video and data calls on your phone.

Cellphones use microwave technology. These waves can pass through buildings and other thick materials. They are resistant to being affected which makes them perfect for transferring data from one place to another.

The technology has come under watch because of its danger to children that are 7 years and younger. Radiation produced may be harmful to children' s brains, and it's advised to not allow small children to use mobile phones for prolonged periods of time. Physics Concepts (continued): Another physics concept in the iPhone is the lenses located in the camera. The basic principles of lenses are all the same.

The image created by a camera requires light. This location is the lens works much like the human eye.

Light enters the lens and projects an upside down image in the camera.

Unlike the human brain, a camera uses mirrors to turn the image right-side-up. The image created by a camera lens is projected onto a surface that "saves" the image. The surfaces used today are film and digital sensors. HOW DOES THE iPHONE WORK? The iPhone is very complex. The iPhone starts to "work" when you sign up with a carrier. By signing up with a carrier, you allow the radio-waves from your phone to connect to your carrier's transceivers.

When you are connected to the transceiver, you allow your phone to make and receive calls and texts, access the internet, and many of the other features provided on the phone.

*It's extremely important for your phone to be connected with a transceiver. If your phone isn't connected, you will typically recieve the message "NO SERVICE." This means that there is no connection which stops your phone from functioning properly. Physics Concepts (Continued): The lithium battery allows you to charge your battery for longer periods of time .

DC power allows you to charge your phone from your house due to direct current. HISTORICAL & CURRENT USES OF THE iPHONE Between the iPhone and the iPhone 5, the uses are basically the same.

The iPhone is used as a typical mobile cell phone, a way to access and use your email, an iPod for listening to music and watching videos, an on-the-go camera, a place to store and read books, a tool for navigation, and a way to access the internet whenever, wherever.

However, one great feature of the iPhone is to allow users to customize how they use their phone by providing the APP STORE. THE APP STORE The APP STORE has given consumers the ability to customize and change/ alter the function of their iPhone.

A business person might purchase apps that manage her schedule, meetins, and events.

A music producer might have more apps that involve music and mixing beats.

A teenager might have more apps for games, social networks, and pictures. FUTURE USES OF THE iPHONE
& 'OFFSPRING' DEVELOPMENTS Future uses of the device will be the same as the previous and current uses of the device; however, there will more than likely be a new version of the iPhone that allows the basic functions and apps to function more efficiently.

'Offspring developments' from the iPhone will be newer, better versions. The iPad, which is a tablet also designed by Apple, is an offspring development from the iPhone. BIBLIOGRAPHY

The DC flow allows for your phone to be charged directly from the house. He was an American entrepreneur and inventor. He was best known as the co-founder, chairman, and CEO of Apple Inc.
