Exactly one year later, in June 2008, Apple came up with the successor of the original Apple. This came in the shape of the iPhone 3G that was much cheaper than its predecessor. This new model had the faster connection to the 3G networks, offered more storage space, and had an inbuilt GPS. It was available as an 8GB and a 16GB version. In June 2009, at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, Steve Jobs announced the launch of its next smartphone known as the iPhone 3GS.

The iPhone 4 was revealed to the world in June 2010 and made it different from the previous one was its new design and the additional features known as FaceTime video chat and the very first HD retina screen. This model could be bought as either a 16GB or a 32GB model. Apple changed its pace afterward and came up with the iPhone 4S in late 2011, just a few weeks after its CEO Steve Jobs resigned from his post due to some health issues, It was Tim Cook, the new CEO who unveiled the iPhone 4S with a dual-core processor, similar to the one used on the iPad 2. This time, apart from the usual 16GB or 32GB models, Apple also released a 64GB version.

The size of the screen got bigger while the shape got slipper on the iPhone 5 that arrived in September 2012. This upgrade of the last version was shown during a one-and-a-half-hour presentation by Tim Cook in San Francisco. During his speech, he mentioned that the iPhone 5 is the biggest innovation to happen after the original iPhone. In September 2013, iPhone 5C and 5S were rolled out simultaneously by Tim Cook. Apart from picking from the white or black casing, you could now also pick the gold version. The iPhone C was less expensive than the iPhone 5S, and it was mostly an improved iPhone 5. As for the 5S, it included a motion data processor, considered as the foundation of fitness and health apps. It also had an innovative Touch ID.

iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were unveiled together a year after and the main attractive feature they had were their enlarged screens. The iPhone 6 has a 4.7-inch screen, while the iPhone 6 Plus boast of a much bigger 5.5-inch screen. They both have the innovative A8 processor that is more efficient and faster than the previous models and they also have upgraded cameras. The 6 Plus model is, however, more expensive than its smaller twin.

For the third year in a row, Apple released two new iPhones simultaneously in 2015. These two new models are the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. It has the 3D touch technology, as well as an improved 12-MP iSight camera that can be used to make 4K videos. They both are functional on an A9 processor and come in a rose-gold model as well.
