Revolutionary Phone

iPhone is a revolutionary new mobile phone that allows you to make a call by simply tapping a name or number in your address book, a favorites list, or a call log. It also automatically syncs all your contacts from a PC, Mac, or Internet service. And it lets you select and listen to voicemail messages in whatever order you want — just like email.

With iPhone, making a call is as simple as touching a name or number. In addition, you can easily construct a favorites list for your most frequently made calls, and quickly merge calls to create conference calls.


iPhone includes an SMS application with a predictive QWERTY soft keyboard that prevents and corrects mistakes, making it easier and more efficient to use than the small plastic keyboards on many smartphones.


An industry first, Visual Voicemail allows you to go directly to any of your messages without listening to the prior messages. So you can quickly select the messages that are most important to you.


With a 2-megapixel camera and an advanced photo management application, iPhone goes beyond anything on a phone today. It automatically syncs photos with your PC or Mac when you dock. Displays albums with a flick of a finger. And can post your pictures directly to a .Mac Web Gallery.



You can create iPhone ringtones from over 500,000 songs on the iTunes Store. You can even pick the section of the song you want. Just choose a track with a ringtone symbol, then get creative. You can edit, loop, fade in and out, preview, and play around until your ringtone is just the way you want it. And each ringtone is only 99¢ plus the cost of the song.

Widescreen iPod

iPhone is a widescreen iPod with touch controls that lets you enjoy your content — including music, audiobooks, videos, TV shows, and movies — on a beautiful 3.5-inch display. It allows you to sync the content from the iTunes library on your PC or Mac and access it all with the touch of a finger.

The iTunes Wi-Fi Store


The iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store on iPhone puts a music superstore in your pocket. Just find a Wi-Fi hot spot, tap the iTunes button and you can browse, preview, buy, and download music on the go. And all the music you buy while you’re out syncs back to your iTunes library on your computer when you dock your iPhone.

High Technology

iPhone introduces the most revolutionary user interface since the mouse, the most advanced software ever engineered, and true state-of-the-art technology that will change the way you think about a mobile device. With over 300 patents, iPhone is years ahead of any other phone available today.

With its large multi-touch display and innovative new software, iPhone lets you control everything using only your fingers. You can type using the predictive keyboard, glide through albums with Cover Flow, scroll through photos with a flick, or zoom in and out on a section of a web page — all with the iPhone multi-touch display.


iPhone uses OS X, the world’s most advanced operating system. Which means you have access to the best-ever software on a handheld device, including rich HTML email, full-featured web browsing, and favorite applications including Address Book and Calendar. iPhone is also fully multi-tasking, so you can read a web page while downloading your email in the background. This software completely redefines what you can do with a mobile phone.


iPhone uses quad-band GSM, the global standard for wireless communications. It also supports AT&T’s EDGE network, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR, which links to Apple’s compact Bluetooth headset. When you move around, iPhone automatically switches between EDGE and Wi-Fi to provide the fastest data connection possible. To set up your own Wi-Fi network, check out the AirPort Extreme Base Station.


The accelerometer detects when you rotate iPhone from portrait to landscape, then automatically changes the contents of the display, so you immediately see the entire width of a web page or a photo in its proper landscape aspect ratio.

Proximity Sensor

When you lift iPhone to your ear, the proximity sensor immediately turns off the display to save power and prevent inadvertent touches until iPhone is moved away. Another power-saving feature is the ambient light sensor. This intelligent sensor automatically adjusts the display’s brightness to the appropriate level for the current ambient light.
