History of the smartphone

History of Smartphones: How the mobile phones evolved to the amazing modern age smartphones?

It took smartphones more than two decades to become a highly sophisticated and essential piece of our daily life.

Mobile phones started large and bulky with very little functionality. They were a luxury that only a few could afford. Today we have more than 70% of the global population using affordable smartphones that also have processing power thousands of times more than what the first generation could provide. Today’s smartphones are millions of times faster than the computer that took humans to the moon.

Before smartphones

Mobile phones were a luxury that could only make calls and send text messages. There existed another category of devices called personal organizers or personal digital assistant (PDA), used for business purposes these had a digital calendar, you could take notes and write emails.

Mobile phones then could merely be used for calling and did not serve any other function due to lack of processing power.

1992: The First Smartphone

IBM the biggest computer company in the 90s and wanted to expand its business in its quest for new tech that could fit into the company’s portfolio they decided to take a computer and shrink it down so it fits in your pocket. This idea started the project which later would be termed as the first true modern-day smartphone.


IBM revealed the device that can be called the first smartphone in 1992, a revolutionary device that was way beyond its time. It had a touch screen, and various apps such as an address book, a calendar, an appointment scheduler, a calculator, a world time clock, an electronic notepad, handwritten annotations, etc. This revolutionary device IBM was called Simons Personal Communicator.

The term smartphone didn’t exist then, but the IBM Simons is the first mobile device advanced enough to be called the first modern age smartphone.

1999: The age of Blackberry


Blackberry launched its first hardware device the Blackberry 850 in the year 1999. The BlackBerry 850 did fall in the category of two-way pager. The Blackberry was the largest smartphone manufacturer of the time. The company’s mobile phones provided features that no other manufacturer could provide, email on the go with great wireless network connectivity. Blackberry also had an instant messenger called the BBM a long before Whatsapp and others were even an idea. The Blackberrys also had super secure connectivity and messaging protocols making it a great choice for those who were worried about their confidential data being stolen from their devices. These features took Blackberry in hands of almost every Business customer across the globe.

2001: Mobile and the Internet

It took almost a decade to get a proper 3G connection to smartphones, in 2001 a mobile protocol was built to allow mobile devices to connect with the internet wirelessly. This allowed various new applications and features but these were again not for everyone. The price of the devices had been down but the cost of data was wasn’t worth it for most. Later as the prices of data started going down more and more people started using mobile internet.

2007: Apple & Steve Jobs Changed the World

In the year 2007, Steve Jobs unveiled one of the most influential smartphones in history, A device that defined what the future should look like, a device that reinvented mobile phones, the Apple iPhone. The iPhone was the sleekest touchscreen device ever made, it featured a large glass screen and a single button in the front.

When Apple revealed the iPhone, it received criticism from other mobile phone manufacturers calling the iPhone a gimmick and a waste of money. The press referred to it as a gamble. Five months later when the device hit stores, people lined up outside Apple Stores to get their hands on the future.


“Every once in a while, a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything, Apple’s been very fortunate. It’s been able to introduce a few of these into the world. Well, today, we’re introducing three revolutionary products of this class. The first one is a wide-screen iPod with touch controls. The second is a revolutionary mobile phone. And the third is a breakthrough internet communications device. An iPod, a phone, and an internet communicator. An iPod, a phone … are you getting it? These are not three separate devices: This is one device, and we are calling it iPhone.” said Steve Jobs during the legendary keynote that gave the world the most influential piece of technology it ever had.

While the sales started to fall after most enthusiasts had bought the first iPhone, Apple realized that with so much screen real estate what apps could do was just limited by the imagination of the human brain. Apple launched the AppStore in 2008 one year after the iPhone launch giving users a way to install apps and go beyond what Apple provided. This new addition was one of the major reasons behind the iPhone being a massive hit in times to come.

Google follows with Android

While every major mobile phone company at the time was mocking Apple for the iPhone and its new touch screen keyboard and completely new user interface there was one company that knew Apple had made the future. Google was about to launch its first Android phone just a few months after the announcement of the Apple iPhone but seeing Apple unveil the iPhone on stage google knew it had to completely rebuild Android.

The device that almost made it to market was canceled and Google engineers got back to the drawing board, rethinking every aspect of its Operating System.

The HTC Dream released in 2008 became the first Android smartphone. The first Android gained criticism due to lacking features when compared to iOS and Blackberry but it was set to become one of the most famous operating systems in the world due to its open nature.

2021: Entire world just a click away

Today 14 years and 27 iPhones later, we can do almost everything with just a few clicks on the touchscreen. Today we do everything from reading news, chatting with friends and family, playing highly sophisticated games and listen to any song in the world, sending emails, and doing all sorts of business stuff.

The smartphone also gave rise to a new industry of apps that is now bigger than Hollywood. Smartphone along with cheaper mobile internet is now changing how everything works. It is changing entire industries and also building new industries such as ed-tech and video and music streaming.

Apple Sues Pegasus

Apple sues Pegasus spyware maker NSO group.

Israel based NSO group was in the news earlier this year for its spyware known as Pegasus was used by various governments to target activists, journalists and even the government’s own officials.

Apple Inc has sued the NSO Group to prevent any more abuse and harm to its users. The iPhone maker is also seeking a permanent injunction to ban the NSO Group from using any of Apple’s products, services and devices. 

To deliver the spyware attackers created Apple IDs to maliciously send data to victims’ device and install the spyware. Though the vulnerability is now fixed Apple claims that Apple’s services were misused to deliver FORCEDENTRY. Apple claims that none of their servers were hacked or compromised.

“Apple devices are the most secure consumer hardware on the market — but private companies developing state-sponsored spyware have become even more dangerous.” Said Craig Federeghi, Apple’s Senior VP of Software Engineering. 

Apple claims that Pegasus attack only impacted a very small number of iPhone and Mac users but the company takes these attacks very seriously and is continuously working on strengthening its security and privacy protections. 

Windows For Arm

Windows for Arm might come to M1: Playing AAA Windows games on Mac with Apple Silicon could soon be possible.

Apple in 2020 announced it will be transitioning all of its mac line from intel to its own custom-built silicon. This shift meant that bootcamp would no longer work as Windows for ARM was only available from OEM unlike regular X86 based Windows which can be downloaded from the Internet. 

Microsoft apparently had a deal with Qualcomm which made Qualcomm the exclusive manufacturer for the ARM based chips that would run Windows for ARM. Two people familiar with the deal told XDA that the deal is “Set to expire soon” but no exact date is put for when will the deal expire. 

Apple Silicone based Macs are insanely power and the hardware is absolutely capable to run almost any AAA game title. With the latest integrated GPU in the M1 Max comparing to a RTX 3080 Mobile while still consuming a lot less power. 

Apple M1 Pro M1 Max M1 Max GPU Performance vs High End PC 10182021 Smartphone

Only limitation these new machines have is the lack of available titles for macOS. End of the Microsoft Qualcomm deal might mean that Microsoft could allow Apple users to install Windows for ARM using bootcamp. 

Although Apple Silicon Mac don’t offer Boot Camp now, but we can hope that Apple would bring in the feature once Windows on Arm is available to install. Considering the fact that Craig Federighi, Apple’s VP of Software Engineering in November of 2020 said Windows for Arm can natively run-on Apple Silicon, but it is up to Microsoft to let it, we can assume that Apple wont mind bringing back Bootcamp. 

Now there are still some problems left with Running AAA titles on these new machines including the fact that all these games are built for the X86 Architecture and not the ARM architecture. But building an emulation layer for X86 based apps for ARM is absolutely possible as we see with the Rosetta 2 emulation layer on MacOS. 

Windows Games on Mac

Now gaming using an emulation layer is not the most ideal but if Microsoft could speed things up a little bit and try to get performance as close to native as they could the games would definitely be playable at a reasonable resolution and refresh rate. 

While the deal is still in place apps like CrossOver allow users to run Windows software on Mac. Users can also use Parallels to run an Insider Preview Build on Windows on the M1 series Macs using virtualisation. 

These solutions does not allow users to play every Windows game ever, but running a lot of Windows-only apps and software is possible also allow playing Windows games on Mac. 

TSMC Apple Modem

Apple’s mind-blowing custom built 5G modem to be built by TSMC.

Apple has been trying for several years now to shift away from Qualcomm to custom built modems. They also bought Intel’s modem division back in 2019 to get started with the development of the custom built 5G Apple modem. 

Apple Inc has always tried to have the complete vertical control over their devices from the processor to the software. This gives the company a greater control over their product cycle and reduced the dependence on other companies. 

The iPhone maker has been relying on Qualcomm for quite some time now for some of iPhones most vital components. Qualcomm being the market leader globally charges very high patent fees while still leaving all the control over the quality and speed to Qualcomm. 

The Cupertino giant is expected to turn away from Qualcomm and use its own custom built modems as soon as 2023. These will be manufactured by Tiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company who have been making Apple’s A series and the new M series processors for iPhone and Mac respectively. 

The custom build will be based on TSMC’s new 4 nanometer process and would save Apple millions of dollars in licensing fees. Apple is also working on its on radio frequency and millimetre wave components. 

We expect this new modem to come built into the newer A-series and maybe also the M-series chipsets making the entire architecture unified and providing better transmission speeds and network bandwidth. 

iPhone Self Service Repair

Apple is Going a New Direction: The Self Service Repair Announcement.

Apple Inc on Wednesday announced a “Self Service Repair” programme that lets customers repair their Apple device by themselves.

Customers that are comfortable with the process will have access to genuine Apple parts and tools and Documentation will be provided for the same. Beginning in 2022 Apple will start providing parts, tools and documentation for the iPhone 12 lineup and the iPhone 13 lineup. Later the same year Macs featuring Apple Silicone inside will get support for the Self Service Repair programme. 

The programme will be available beginning from the United States and will later expand to more countries.

This announcement comes as a result of the right to repair movement that has been gaining supporters globally. Apple seems to have taken a step back and is listening to what the customer wants first by bringing back ports to the MacBook Pro and then by providing users with everything they need to fix their own devices by themselves. 

This programme will initially only support screen, battery and camera related repairs which happen to be the three most common type of repairs at Apple Stores. Apple will be currently providing more than 200 individual parts and tools for performing these repairs. 

Customers can place order for these parts at the Apple Self Service Repair Online Store and can get the Repair manual on the website as well. Customers who return the used part for recycling will receive a credit towards their purchase. 

Apple said the programme is for people with knowledge and experience to repair electronic devices and the vast majority of people without any experience should prefer taking their devices certified repair shops as unexperienced customers could end up damaging the device even more. 

Apple has been considered as one of the biggest opponent to the right to repair movement and this Self Service Repair programme from Apple marks a major win of the movement. The Cupertino Giant being one of the most influential company in the world also now marks a shift through the Tech industry. 

Though just allowing screen, battery and camera might be a very small portion of repairs but still marks a massive win for the consumers as they now have an option to get their hands on fixing their Apple devices. 

iMac Pro

iMac Pro: Going beyond Pro/Max?

Apple Silicone based iMac Pros might replace the current 27” iMac in the first half of 2022. The Pro moniker would be reserved only to the 27” model and would distinguish the 27” model from the 24” model.

These new machines will be available with the latest M1 Pro and M1 Max chipsets available with the MacBook Pros there will also be a newer more powerful chipset that will make the more expensive model. The device will also have a mini-LED display and will be launched in the first half of 2022. 

New Design:

The 2022 iMac Pro is expected to carry a brand new design with thinner bezels. These bezels will be black in color to distinguish the Pro line-up from the regular cheaper models. The iMac will also have a chin similar to the 24” iMac but would seem smaller due to the larger screen and a thicker overall body of the device. The device according to leaker Dylandkt the device would look a lot similar to the Pro Display XDR and the 24” iMac.

Similar to the MacBook Pro and the iPad Pro the iMac Pro will have a mini-LED display that will allow the display to provide deeper blacks and brighter colors, this new technology that is also used in the Pro Display XDR will allow the iMac to work better with HDR and will allow for Pro Motion.

Pro Motion is the 120Hz adaptive refresh rate display technology that makes the screen look a lot smoother.

Some rumours suggest the screen size to go up in a similar fashion to the 21.5” iMac turning to 24” but according to display analyst Ross Young (who has a 100% accuracy according to AppleTrack) the screen size will remain unchanged. 

Going beyond Max

 The M1 Pro and M1 Max are pretty impressive chips but still lack behind the massive Intel i9 chip and the Radeon 5700XT that are available with the current iMac model. Going back to a leak from Mark Gurman from December 2020, Apple has been working on a 20 core CPU comprising of 16 high performance and 4 efficiency cores. This new 20 core CPU will also allow for a 128GBs of RAM unlike the current M1 Max which is capped at 64GB. 

The iMac Pro might still have models with the M1 Pro and M1 Max available for lower price and then the newer bigger CPU model which will likely cost significantly more. 

This can be backed by the fact that the MacOS Monterey has various references to multi-die SoC and the IRQ controllers on the M1 Pro and Max have a second half that is currently unused. This points to the 20 core SoC actually being 2 M1 Max put together.

This also means that the all-in-one will have double the number of video encoders and decoders, double the number of ProRes accelerators and double every of the highly specialised components.


The iMac Pro can be expected to have a similar port configuration to the current MacBook Pros and might also host a few more USB-C ports in the higher spec versions considering more available bandwidth due to presence of an extra M1 Max die. The desktop computer will also have an Ethernet port which can be expected to be present on the power adapter similar to the 24” iMac. 

7018D087 FB61 4CC8 A1E5 DB5F11AE096A Smartphone


Although a definitive price isn’t out yet we can expect the price to range from $2000 for the M1 Pro upto $10,000 for a fully maxed out model. 

Going Pro

The 27” iMac is internally called the iMac Pro and the same is expected to be its official launch name. The Pro suffix will differentiate the device from the 24” iMac. This will allow Apple to market the device to a wider range of audience from self claimed Pros to Industry Professionals. 

Apple plans on announcing this new iMac Pro in the first half of 2022 which indicate to a March event that will also feature the launch of a new iPad Pro.

Apple Business Essentials

Apple Business Essentials is a subscription service that helps small businesses.

Apple Business Essentials

Apple has been adding a lot of services to its catalogue and these services are becoming a major part of the business adding to this the company announced a new subscription service that it calls Apple Business Essentials. 

Business Essentials is a set of services for small and mid-sized companies using all Apple devices to manage IT within one single MDM management tool. The service includes Device Management, iCloud Storage per user, 24×7 phone support, and on-site repairs from Apple technicians.

The service is meant to streamline the processes of onboarding or managing business apps as well as managing disk encryptions and Lost Mode. The service uses the power of iCloud and Apple ID to manage all of the devices and users easily. 

Apple Business Essentials also automates services and permissions, and iscan configure an employee’s personal device to safely, securely, and privately carry work-related data. It does this through support for two Apple IDs on the device, the managed ID and the employee’s own. This allows to keep the user data private while also keeping company data secure.

The service will initially only be available in the US with price ranging from $2.99 to $12.99 a month per user which depends on amount of iCloud storage and number of devices needed per user. 

The Apple Business Essentials app can be used by the employees to install assigned work apps and request support.

“Apple Business Essentials is designed to help streamline every step of employee device management within a small business — from setup, onboarding, and upgrading, to accessing fast service and prioritised support, all while keeping data backed up and secure, so companies can focus on running their business.” Said Apple’s VP of Enterprise and Education marketing, Susan Prescott. 

Apple is also promising an AppleCare+ for Business Essentials which will be available after the service officially launches in spring 2022. This is an optional feature which would most likely cost extra, although the prices are unclear we can expect the onsite service and 24×7 Tech Support to be a bit expensive.

macOS Monterey-title

MacOS Monterey is live: Find out what’s new and is your Mac eligible for the upgrade.

Unveiled at the World Wide Developer’s Conference, Apple’s macOS Monterey the latest version of the beautifully built operating system for the company’s laptops and desktops is rolling out for supported Mac devices. The new system brings around several changes and also drops support for a few of the older devices. Although Apple users with the older Intel version of Macs can still get the upgrade they will be missing out of several of the new features that depend on the Apple Silicon. 

New in macOS Monterey

One of the most interesting of the new features coming to the latest macOS is what Apple calls Universal Control, this new feature lets users use one single set of Keyboard,Mouse and/or trackpad across all your Mac and iPad devices. This is build over iCloud and allows to move the pointer from the screen of one device to another and also dragging and dropping files across your devices. 

macOS Montery Universal Control

Another new and interesting feature coming to the Mac is Shortcuts. The same app that allows users to automate and create a bunch of very interesting features into your iPhone and iPad. Now that Macs run on chips based on the same architecture Apple is bringing the comparatively easy to use app to the Mac replacing the Automator which was a bit of a hassle to use for a non tech person. 

Although the Automator app will still be supported for those who have created very complex workflows in it, but that we expect will only last till the Shortcuts app catches up. Apple also made it possible to import automator workflows to the Shortcuts app.

AirPlay to Mac in the macOS Monterey now makes it possible for iPhones and iPads to stream media to your iMac, Mac mini or Mac Pro using AirPlay. The feature wirelessly as well as over a USB connection. 

Safari Monterey

The new feature list also includes likes of a new and updated Safari with a UI refresh, Focus which allows users to focus on what’s important at the specific time, SharePlay allowing content sharing over video calls and conferences, Live Text to use the neural engine to make text from images interactive, newer and more detailed Map and more.

Eligible devices

The newer version of macOS usually drops out support for some of the older devices which do not have enough power to run the latest updates. As for macOS Monterey the list of devices eligible for the upgrade is as given below.

iMac – 2015 and later

iMac Pro – 2017 and later

MacBook Air – Early 2015 and later

MacBook Pro – Early 2015 and later

Mac Pro – Late 2013 and later

Mac mini – Late 2014 and later

MacBook – Early 2016 and later

Things to check before upgrading to macOS Monterey

Check if you have at least 15-20 GB of free storage before you upgrade to the latest and greatest.

Create a complete backup of your all your data as if the device encounters any issue during the installation all your data could be damaged.

Make sure you have a fast and stable internet connection and enough data to download the package.

M1 Pro , M1 Max

Apple vs Apple: Comparing the M1, M1 Pro and M1 Max.

With the launch of the Pro MacBooks Apple released two new SoCs (M1 Pro & M1 Max) that deliver higher performance than the current M1 SoC. These new processors are product of Apple’s transition to custom in-house silicon that the company announced back in 2020. 

These custom ARM based chipsets first debuted in the form of the extremely popular M1 alongside the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. The recently announced M1 Pro and M1 Max are a step further in the direction to going completely free from the slow Intel timeline.

[metaslider id=1627 cssclass=””]

Apple’s M1 series of Chips are based off the A series chips that the company uses in its iPhones. This allows the Mac systems to be extremely energy efficient while still being very powerful.

These Intel killers have separate high-performance and high efficiency cores, they also have a set of GPU cores and a dedicated neural engine for machine learning tasks. These also have various hardware accelerators giving the devices a major advantage in specific tasks. This philosophy of designing hardware for specific tasks has been proving to be superior to Intel’s method of designing cores that compute very type of task given to it.

M1 Pro, M1 Max CPU Charts

The M1 was already an impressive piece for Apple’s first attempt at making a chip for Laptops and Desktops, and was already making Intel and AMD’s offerings look inferior. The M1 Pro and M1 Max take the entirety of the M1 chipset and almost doubles and at some tasks even quadruples what the already breathtaking M1 can do. The M1 Pro and Max are aimed at professionals and Apple seems to have taken care of every single issues they might have faced using the standard first gen silicon. 

[metaslider id=1636 cssclass=””]

Choosing the right chip for you could be a bit confusing considering the fact that there are multiple variations in these chipsets carrying the same name. With different numbers of CPU and GPU cores Apple brought in variation but the way it is done could be a bit intimidating to the buyer. The M1 Pro for instance has two versions, one with 8 CPU cores and 14 GPU cores and one with 10 CPU cores and 16 GPU cores. The M1 Max has versions with 10 CPU cores and either 24 or 32 GPU cores.

Apple releases M1 based MacBook Pros: The M1 is going Pro.

On 18th of October at its “Unleashed” event Apple released its most awaited product of the year the Apple silicon based MacBook Pro. The new MacBook Pro series comes with bigger so-called up versions of the M1 SoC which the company calls M1 Pro and the top of the line M1 Max. The notebook is available in 14-inch and 16-inch display variants and will be the biggest update to the MacBook in the past couple of years where Apple almost messed up the Pro workflow.

The new M1 Pro and M1 Max are beefed up versions of the already excellent M1 and do allow upto 10-core CPU and 32-Core GPU with upto 64 GB of unified memory.

New Silicon

The Cupertino giant revealed the plan to transition from Intel to its own custom in-house silicon in 2020. The M1 which was Apple’s first custom SoC in a Mac was ARM based hence provided huge performance improvements while still consuming a lot less power.

Today the iPhone maker announced the M1 Pro and the M1 Max which are further supposed to increase performance using more high performance cores. 

MacBook Pro M1 Pro Max

The M1 Pro as well as M1 Max have a total of 10 CPU cores of which 2 are high-efficiency and 2 high 8 high-performance. Both the SoCs have a 16 core neural engine. And while M1 Pro has a maximum of 16 core GPU with 32 GB of unified memory, the M1 Max has 32 Core GPU and upto 64GB of unified memory.

The marketing charts and numbers given by Apple show that the M1 Pro and M1 Max show upto 1.7 times more power while still using upto 70% less power. The M1 Pro’s GPU is 2 times faster than the M1 while the M1 Max is 4 times faster than the M1 in GPU performance. 


The MacBook Pro 2021 has a completely new display panel now with a notch for the camera and thinner bezels. The Display itself if a MiniLED panel giving out a 1000 nits of full screen brightness, 1600 nits of peak brightness and 10,00,000:1 contrast ratio. The display now also supports Apple’s ProMotion or adaptive refresh rate with upto 120Hz. The notch at the top of the screen hosts a new 1080p FaceTime camera but despite the massive size lacks other sensors required for FaceID. 

Apple MacBook Pro Connectivity 10182021 Smartphone

The display supports the complete P3 wide colour gamut, HDR, and XDR output. 


In 2016 Apple gave the MacBook Pro a major redesign making the device thin light and portable and in the process got rid of a lot of very important ports. This time around Apple went back and brought back the HDMI port and the SD card slot along with three USB-C thunderbolt 4 ports. Bringing a relief to the professionals as they no longer have to carry around weird dongles for basic functionality. 

Apple MacBook Pro Ports 10182021 Smartphone

Apple has also brought back the MagSafe magnetic connecter for charging the device. However users can still use the USB-C port for charging the device similar to current devices.

The 14” model now provides a 17 hour battery life while the 16” model boasts a massive 21 hour battery life. The company also claims that the device now uses a newer thermal system that can move upto 50% more air even at lower fan speeds. 

New speaker system on these MacBook Pro models include 6 speakers of which 2 are tweeters while other 4 are force-cancelling woofers.

Apple claims that using its new M1 Max chip, pros can edit up to 30 streams of 4K ProRes video or up to seven streams of 8K ProRes video in Final Cut Pro — more streams than on a 28-core Mac Pro with Afterburner.

Apple MacBook Pro 16 inch Workflow 10182021 Smartphone

Both M1 Pro and M1 are also paired with a 16-core Neural Engine that helps enhance machine learning capabilities on the new MacBook Pro models. As per some numbers shared publicly, the built-in Neural Engine delivers up to 8.7 times faster object tracking performance in Final Cut Pro with M1 Pro and up to 11.5 times faster with M1 Max. There is also up to 2.6 times faster performance when selecting subjects in images in Adobe Photoshop. 

The MacBook Pro 2021 will come preinstalled with the MacOS Monterey and the OS will also be available to older devices running the MacOS BigSur. The MacBook Pro with the M1 Pro and M1 Max are true Pro machines and do provide the power needed by the creative professionals claims Apple.
