Every time a new iPhone is released, people line up for days just to buy one. We just don't stop prying the phone and mugging up the spec sheet.
Sure, it looks cool, but do you know anything else about it, aside from what the news and websites tell you?
As of now, iPhone is pulling millions of new and old Apple customers back to stores; it's the perfect time to sneak through a curtain and look for interesting facts and trivia about our favorite smartphone.
Do you know that Apple persisted with their first icon as a featuring image of Isaac Newton reading a book under an apple tree? Well, the company whip up a furious squall, every time there's a new product launch, and smartly chose a simple and iconic icon.

Unfortunately for Apple, they can't market their phones in Brazil ever since IGM Electronica owned the trademark. And due to this, iPhone costs twice the US price in Brazil.
iPhone6 sets record sale in the first three days of launch with 10 Million units sold. Can you count the profit by that sale? It would take three more days for me in figuring it out.
Regardless of the indictment that iPhones are for technology hipsters without a clue, that is honestly a surprising amount.
You simply aren't aware that the remote control that you are ignoring on your headphones can be used to set off the camera. Yes, you can take selfies using your ear-plugs.

All Apple ads have a time of 9.40 AM and that's for a far more boring reason. Any guesses? Well, it's because all the big revelations occur 40 minutes into a presentation.
The original Apple Maps icon suggested 'suicide.' It had a Fast & Furious style jump off an overpass. Thankfully, Apple has now changed this, but how many people blindly used that map as an indication of a real way to get there? Probably, not very many!

I was expecting some sort of iPancake, but luckily, when tested, the screen was cracked, but it still answered the incoming calls. Now, this counts as a win.
The first iPhone was a land-line, with a built-in stylus controlled interface and was invented in 1983.
You could mindlessly put it down to jealousy. Though Samsung trashes iPhone, in Galaxy smartphone commercials, but they are in a way being self-critical, since the computer chip that powers the iPhone is apparently made by Samsung.
As previously we established that Apple wasn't the first to register the iPhone, at least in Brazil. But, they have bigger problems in the wake of the phone's general announcement in 2007.
