At this time, the store has more than 2 billion applications and games. Apple and its App Store pushed the industry toward developing what could not exist without that of smartphones. Without smartphones there would be Uber and Lyft, Instagram and WhatsApp.

During the presentation of the first iPhone, Steve Jobs said: "We were all born with the best device for finger input and the iPhone used to create the most revolutionary UI."
The Apple boss might even have imagined, as far as he was right. The emergence of тачскринов made Microsoft embed the support of touch controls on its way, and from other manufacturers to create smartphones, tablets and computers with touch screens. Today more than strange to see a gadget without touch screen.

The iPhone reinvent the idea of a mobile industry. Projects like that of Angry Birds, where you can play each, have become very popular, has changed the way monetization of video games. Now most of the games are free, instead of charging for the download, the developers implement in the game of purchase.

Social networks have moved to mobile devices. At Facebook's request, 84% of the company's advertising revenue is precisely derived from advertising on mobile gadgets.
At the same time, the iPhone account is attributed to the lack of attention and hyperactivity of children. The government uses smartphones to monitor people, and consumers provide a huge amount of personal information in exchange for Google services or a trip in Uber.
But even with all its flaws, no one is willing to give up iPhone.
