The iPhone is iconic as the culmination of all modern technology and engineering in one instrument. Although taken for granted sometimes, all smartphones are incredible and sophisticated devices consisting of many different and unique parts. Not only do they facilitate modern communication, but they have powerful computation ability, GPS, gyroscopes, interactive touchscreens, multiple cameras, and impressive battery lives.
All these very different technologies have different paths of how they came to be, and this infographic explains how we got to this iPhone Era of technology history. Over centuries mathematicians, chemists, engineers, and other scientists have devoted their entire lives to move incrementally in their field towards today’s tech.
Not for the faint of heart, everything here is tracked all the way back to ancient times.
