Three more ways the iPhone changed the world: 1. IMAGE-CONSCIOUS CONSUMERS By including a camera, the iPhone ensured that people would be able to take photographs at any time, wherever they went, in virtually unlimited quantity. It also gave rise to photo-based social apps like Instagram and Snapchat. 2. PRODUCTS AS ACCESSORIES More than even Apple’s beloved Macintosh, the iPhone has shown how important it is to connect elegant industrial design with beautiful and intuitive interfaces. Words like simple, magical, and delightful now rule product design. 3. THE NEED FOR SPEED In order to keep up with the increased demand for data following the iPhone’s initial release, AT&T—the product’s original exclusive carrier—introduced nationwide 3G service, at a cost of $20 billion. Today, every major carrier in the U.S. supports 4G speeds that are fast enough to rival that of broadband. [Illustrations: @claudiadraws, Tom Brown of @reneerhynerco, @patternsandpatterns]
