Technologies which were Killed by iPhone [Infographic]

Despite having lost its irreplaceable pillar — the one and only Steve Jobs — Apple Inc is still considered an innovative figure when it comes to the world of Technology. From old times itself, Apple has been successful in finding scope in once-dead industries and letting them resurrect — just as they did in the case of Smartphones, by introducing trend-setter Apple iPhone that has now reached its ninth version, named iPhone 6. This let-it-resurrect attitude of Apple is seen also in the case of other products such as Apple iPod, iPad, Macintosh-based computers and the newly arrived Apple Watch — the giant’s foray into wearable technology.

Having said all these, we have to agree with the fact that Apple iPhone is the most discussed, viral and trend-setting device that Apple Inc has ever brought to the stage and thus has put old concepts of technology into waste bin. Back in 2007, when Steve Jobs came in his usual dress and showed the world something incredibly unusual, what we had was a revolutionary Smartphone. From then on, intentionally or unintentionally, Apple iPhone was a part of killing a number of technologies by labeling them ‘outdated’.

For instance, when Jobs had showed the world power of touch and its flexibility through use of touch screen by iPhone, it had indirectly pitied the button-rich behaviour of devices, which were then considered smart. Similarly, recently, through introduction of its virtual assistant, Siri, Apple Inc set out a journey, at the end of which we will have no keyboards! And, the list is not over. In this infographic, you will be able to explore a number of technologies that were labeled ‘outdated’ or, literally, killed by Apple iPhone.

  • Hey Atish,

    GPS gadgets and cameras are seriously being killed by iPhone.

    The way Apple had improved the camera part in its iPhones and making it better day by day is truly amazing and it helped users to stay with their iPhone rather than carrying a separate camera for taking pictures..

    But for serious photographers, cameras are still best 🙂

  • Hi Atish,
    iPhone has really been a killer for most of the technologies for sure. The button format in cellphones is what it changed before anyone did. And with its first only gadget, it created a buzz. And I am damn sure that in coming days it will make other things vanish.
