No camera data[edit]

I didn't see any kind of information on the specifications of original iPhone camera. Can someone who knows it can add it, please? bladez (talk) 13:15, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Steve Jobs really?[edit]

This (awkward) sentence: "Steve Jobs, CEO at Apple Inc., conceived an idea of using a multi-touch touchscreen to interact with a computer in a way in which he could type directly onto the display, essentially removing the physical keyboard and mouse, the same as a tablet computer." essentially says that Steve Jobs invented the virtual/onscreen keyboard. Really??? Doubtful. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.27.226.98 (talk) 16:26, 3 August 2012 (UTC)


Seriously Wikiepdia =[edit]

Steve Jobs did not concieve of a touch screen concept! Nokia had a touchscreen phone years before the iphone. This is VERY SLOPPY Wikipedia! Fix this! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.73.88.73 (talk) 19:55, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

IBM Simon says hi from 1993 also. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IBM_Simon I agree the article makes it seem like steve jobs invented touch computers and phones, while it doesnt outright say it, these devices existed long before he "conceived" them in his mind. 24.61.67.38 (talk) 15:08, 17 December 2015 (UTC)

IPhone (original)iPhone (1st generation) – Conveniently matches iPad (1st generation), (3rd) and (4th). Apple might also go with its Macbook naming convention at some point for the iPhone. Marcus Qwertyus (talk) 02:38, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

  • Support this one is almost too obvious Hot Stop (Talk) 04:53, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Support - Less ambiguous title. (technically, couldn't the Newton be the first "iPhone"?) (X! · talk)  · @066  ·  00:35, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Suppost - straightforward and makes common sense Tiggerjay (talk) 04:53, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

Proposed move (which ordinal?)[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: page moved. Armbrust The Homunculus 23:26, 23 November 2013 (UTC)


IPhone (1st generation)iPhone (first generation) – The iPad series was recently moved to spelled out ordinals (e.g. iPad (first generation), iPad (third generation), iPad (fourth generation)). I have no opinion about which is the common name but spelled out is recommended by WP:ORDINAL, and is preferred in AP Style (up to nine) and Chicago Style (up to ninety-nine). The first-generation iPhone is more of a straight-forward case than the iPad situation since Apple identifies the two later iPad generations as "3rd," and "4th"; the original iPhone is not identified at all on its website as far as I can tell.

Why is everything say 1968 on this page, is it vandalism or programming error ?[edit]

Why is everything say 1968 on this page, is it vandalism or programming error ? Spike82 (talk) 03:49, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

It was vandalism. Thanks for pointing it out. Calidum Talk To Me 03:56, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

Move discussion in progress[edit]

There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:IPod Touch (fifth generation) which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RMCD bot 03:30, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

Discontinued Ability to Connect to iTunes?[edit]

Hi, it seems that Apple discontinued the ability to connect first gen iphones to iTunes.... I've looked and looked online and couldn't find anything that approaches WP:RS to support this--so it's just a personal observation. Maybe some iPhone cultees can verify better than I? If so, it would be appropriate to put in the article. --108.45.56.173 (talk) 20:03, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on IPhone (1st generation). Please take a moment to review my edit. You may add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it, if I keep adding bad data, but formatting bugs should be reported instead. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether, but should be used as a last resort. I made the following changes:
