Apple's iPhone: a definitive history in pictures

In the build up to the launch of the iPhone 8 in September, we look back across the history of the iPhone – ten years on.

The first ever iPhone was unveiled by Steve Jobs at the Macworld Conference and Expo in San Francisco in January 2007. Its limited functionality in its early days – including not being able to connect to the internet independently of WiFi, meant it was effectively an entire computer that happened to make phone calls.

On Wednesday, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) display supplier Japan Display, reported its financial results for the first quarter of its fiscal 2017.

The company said that its revenue of 188.6 yen ($1.7 billion) came in “modestly” ahead of its forecasts , as display shipments to the United States and Europe made up for a “slowdown” in the company's shipments to China.

Unfortunately, the company reported an operating loss of 14.4 billion yen ($130 million) — larger than the 3.4 billion yen ($31 million) loss it booked in the same quarter a year ago — as the company sped up development of organic light emitting diode (OLED) display technology and began mass production at its Hakusan manufacturing plant.

Although Japan Display is clearly investing heavily in trying to develop OLED technology — its research and development costs rose from 3.4 billion yen ($31 million) in fiscal Q1 2016 to 5.6 billion yen ($50 million) in its most recent quarter — the company's t..

If you’re in the market for a new iPhone, you may want to wait awhile. Apple’s 10th anniversary iPhone, widely referred to as the iPhone 8, is expected to be released soon. Rumors suggest it’ll boast an all-new design. And if history is any indication, we’ll definitely see discounts on the iPhone 7 once the iPhone 8 makes its debut.
So when should you pounce on that new handset? Read on for our full analysis.

Why you should wait to buy an iPhone
DealNews keeps exhaustive records of iPhone price trends dating back to 2011. Our data shows that older iPhones are generally discounted in the fall, after the latest-generation model is announced. So, if you’re still toting around an iPhone 6s or later, you should definitely wait to upgrade.
If you’re looking for maximum savings, you should push your iPhone purchase back until February.
However, if you’re looking for maximu..

Mockups Imagine What Apps Might Look Like on iPhone 8

As the launch of Apple's “iPhone 8” approaches, we've seen multiple images and dummy models outlining what the device will look like, but non-functional dummy devices don't include software and don't offer a complete picture of what we can expect.

Designer Maksim Petriv has mocked up several iPhone 8 images that take into account current rumors to demonstrate what iOS 11 might look like on the new device.

Rumors and leaked firmware information suggest the iPhone 8 includes both a top notch that houses the front-facing camera and sensors for a facial recognition system and a function area with a virtual Home button, both of which are imagined in Petriv's images.

Petriv's photos include status bar information located at the top of the device on either side of the notch, and a small Home button area at the bottom. We're not yet sure what Apple plans to do with that area of the iPhone 8, but we do..

Barclays has bad news for Apple if it decides to price the its upcoming high-end iPhone at more than $1,000.

In an investor note, Barclays said that just 11 percent of its survey respondents would spend more than $1,000 on an iPhone. Most folks only want to spend $582, or $48.50 per month on a 12-month device installment plan.

The tables turn a hair in Apple's favor among current iPhone owners — 18 percent of consumers who already own an iPhone are willing to spend more than $1,000, Barclays said.

This could spell bad news for Apple. Reports have suggested its new iPhone 8 will cost $1,200 or even as much as $1,400.

Here's why investors might not need to worry, though: Apple's most hi..

As far as we’re concerned, the best way to celebrate the beginning of another weekend is with a fresh selection of paid apps gone free. That’s exactly what we’ve got here today — 8 to be exact — but if that’s somehow not enough to fill up your phone, you can always check yesterday’s post as well.

Don't Miss: New video showcases how the iPhone 8 stacks up against the iPhone 7s Plus

This post covers paid iPhone and iPad apps that have been made available for free for a limited time by their developers. BGR is not affiliated with any developers. There is no way to tell how long they will be free. These sales could end an hour from now or a week from now — obviously, the only thing we can guarantee is that they were free at the time this post was written. If you click on a link and see a price listed next to an app instead of the word “get,” it is no longer free. The sale has ended. If you download the app anyway, you will be charged by Apple.
