Here is how iOS evolved over the past 6 years

0. phoneArena 12 Jun 2012, 09:42 posted on

The year is 2007. Steve Jobs is on stage unveiling a new, revolutionary product with a name we are all so familiar with today – the iPhone. It looks nothing like a smartphone, or at least not like the smartphones we knew back then, for it had no hardware keyboard, a spacious, touch-sensitive screen, and ran a software platform that was sleek and highly simplified...

YES watch a snail move across your yard & that is EXACTLY how iOS has evolved in the last 6 years. lol

Wow Apple really is turning up the revolution in their brand new iOS 6.

iOS 6 is now on par with Android 1.6 Donut. (And that is being very nice!) I wonder how Android 4.1 Jellybean will push the OS THAT much further than iOS 6.

I really need to see a list with these 200 “phantom” features iOS 6 is claiming. lol

What? Are you talking about the far more advanced 3D map they already announced long before Apple, or the notification shade, or all the new features that they introduced that have been in Android for years? Vlingo also available for years owned by the same company that actually made Siri? Which one will Android copy again? The only similarities between the two now are that they both make phone calls and have touch screens.

Copy cat lol ok 3D maps on android was shown announced previously before WWDC where apple showed their 3D mapping., street look exists on android, and turn by turn navigations is been out for years, copy cat features like notification bar yes ios copied that, no multitasking on ios still how sad is that, when you switch from one app to another on ios u stop the other app completely, offline maps are coming to android, yes no cellular data required to run, facetime with cellular network finally? Took them that many years to get it working? And youtube app still lackluster, you cannot subscribe to people still, pretty lame, voice actions from android have been there since 2009 , so i dont think you can say much since android came with voice integration first.

You are such a brainwashed i5heep troll who actually thinks Siri was the first voice control on a phone. Please stop commenting and at least Google things before you speak.

moron alert moron alert

google maps went 3d like 2 years ago. Voice commands has been around for about 3 years, and Siri is just now getting updates that put its functionality on par with google's, while google is going for the next evolution beyond that with Majel.

S-Voice is nothing but VLingo app, which has been available on android SINCE THE BEGINNING, with the ability to accept multiple statements to do a command... which is all siri does differently.

Pretty much every feature that iOS got "updated with new features" to in the last 4 OS updates was catching up to android. Ya just dont get it. Your really want android but you cant admit it. time to come out of the fruit closet and try on the green suit.

He's right. No many changes with CoD over the years.

oh yeah apple is really trying to "catch up" with android. Apple sales has drastically fell off. you guys are so stupid, apple is not trying to be like them.if they did, they could have added live wallpapers and a different lock screen years ago. They're not going to change the look because they want to have their own identity.

Thanks remixfa, I just got back from lunch so I didn't have time to answer this moron. lol

destr0y3r (nice name lol) Just so you know these "new" features have been enjoyed by the Android community for years now. Apple didn't invent anything here, if anything they are emulating Android VERY hard.

So who is copying who? Looks like Apple = copy now. I am going to give you credit though. You do the i$heep thing very well. You even got the posting of completely wrong information 100% perfect. You indeed are a great i$heep. Good job giving the Apple fans a good name!

Who said we wanted the iPhone to be like Android? We're just noticing how much Apple apparently wants the iPhone to be like Android, as every year nearly every new feature they drop has been on Android for years.

then why bash Apple if it doesn't have Android features???.. fandroids should be happy that Apple is a closed OS and has a close ecosystem but fandroids are always bashing on it. demanding to keep up with Android??

coming from the king of idiot troll's yes-troll. It rings a little bit hollow.

wait.. when samsung introduced S-Voice, which was a rebranding of an already popular and very long standing app, Vlingo, wasnt it you and your troll puppetier that were screaming that it was a "siri copy"? Even though VLingo launched with android 1.6? Hmmm..

It's not an argument if it's true. You can't dispute that iOS 6 does resemble Android.

Anyway how have you been gallitoking? How are things in the desert? Man I am dying to see AZ.

I bash Apple because they constantly claim others are copying them, while they are copying away. And, even then I wouldn't care, but they take it even further and try to get phones banned and tie OEMs up in court.

Let me have the phone I want, and stop acting like a little bitch throwing a tantrum because everyone else can do everything you do and more.

but how does it hurt you in any way that you go into every Apple article to say the exact same thing... it doesn't matter what they claim.. don't worry about Apple worry about Android. unless you like Apple?...

i think the reason why ''fandroids'' keep on bringing it up is because ''isheeps'' have always been going on about how android copies and apple doesnt etc etc clearly ios 5 and 6 shows that apple does indeed copy just like everyone else and they are no different..people are just pointing out to the people who have always claimed apple is original etc and the apple users that dont say these stuff dont need to take notice of these comments.
