The smartphone is well-known to most people.

Fast Forward to 2022 and now the device is a  household name, and it’ll tricky to unearth a person who isn’t aware of it.

Apple’s CEO, Steve Jobs, presented the smartphone in Jan 2007 calling it a “groundbreaking web communicator” that combined the features of an iPhone and a headset. As a result of the iconic statement, the handheld phone market was forever transformed.
