The first iPhone came in 2017, and it took the world by storm. The iPhone revolutionized the worldwide smartphone business by introducing novel features such as touchscreen displays and virtual keyboards.  The launch of the iPhone forced competitors to develop new products and operating systems in order to meet the new market demands.
