2007 When the iPhone was first announced, Steve Jobs said, “It’s an iPod, a phone, and an Internet communicator all in one.

The iPhone has dramatically changed the way we communicate and access the Internet, creating a huge impact and revolution around the world.

The first iPhone laid the foundation and ushered in an era where it became a pocket-sized computer that could be used to look up just about anything with a tap, and operating it with one hand became the norm for many people.

Today, we can do a lot of work, communicate with others, travel, shop, manage our money, and even experience entertainment, all on our smartphones.

The online gaming industry, in particular, has been affected by this small, portable computer, and a large part of gaming is shifting from video games to online games, free stuff with new games etc…

When smartphones were first introduced, many people were fascinated by their futuristic designs. These devices are now commonplace, but 15 years ago, everything was new and hopeful.

The advent of the iPhone hit the Japanese electronics industry hard, and even large international companies like NEC and Panasonic could not compete with Apple in the cell phone market and were later forced to withdraw from the cell phone market.

The iPhone has evolved at a dizzying pace, and we can expect more to come.

When and where was the iPhone first released?

The first generation iPhone (iPhone/iPhone2G/iPhone1) was first announced on January 9, 2007.

It was then released in the US on June 29th of the same year, followed by the UK, France, and Germany in November of the same year, and then Ireland and Austria.

The “iPhone 3G” was the first model of iPhone to be available for purchase in Japan. When it was released, it was so popular that many stores had long lines of over 1,000 people and sold out in an hour.

One of the features of the first iPhone was that you had to sign a contract with the carrier yourself, just like a PC provider. After purchasing the first iPhone, users would connect their home or office PC to iTunes and sign a contract with the carrier.

  • Connect your iPhone to your Mac or Windows PC via USB 
  • select a rate plan 
  • enter your personal information 
  •  sign a contract with the carrier.

In the event of a problem with the iPhone, resetting (initializing) the device would return it to factory settings, from which the initial settings would need to be made.

The iPhone will continue to evolve

Today, it is said that 60 to 70% of Japanese people use iPhones. The secret of the iPhone’s popularity is that it is simple and easy to use, and it was a cell phone that perfectly fit the Japanese people who love new things. The high level of specifications and the ease of use of the dedicated design have also won high praise.

What to expect in the future of iPhone

As the iPhone continues to evolve with the changing times, what features are Japanese users looking for in the next generation of iPhones?

What was unattainable when the first generation iPhone was released is now commonplace, and there is a great deal of interest in what kind of design and functions will be available in the future.

Expected features of these iPhones

  • Increased storage capacity
  • Miniaturization
  • Camera features that allow you to take pictures like a pro
  • Enhanced cables
