Meanwhile, weeks go by and we know more and more about this renewal of the iPhone, thanks to the leaks and models we have been seeing for a few months now.

Specifically, these three former Apple executives begin by going back to 2005, when Steve Jobs first showed them the iPhone interface based on the terminal’s touch screen , which at the time was something new and even risky.

The first demonstration of the operating system that Steve Jobs showed these managers was on a table with a projection where they could see how this first interface based on a touch screen worked. All this happened back in 2005, and once visualized they started to improve it until they had the version that was presented together with the original iPhone .

Of course the development of this new interface created by the people of the apple went through some bumps like the one that happened in 2006, when its development was stopped to focus only and exclusively on the development of the keyboard of this operating system , as it was not practical to write even a simple email.

It was precisely the proposal of a developer that came out as the keyboard alternative for this operating system, as it was the most advanced and offered certain advantages such as the prediction of certain words .

Perhaps this chapter within the history of Apple is one of the most important, when dealing with the principle of what today is the operating system of the people of Cupertino, with very similar bases and that even with the update to iOS 11 we have returned to a calculator design very similar to the original of the Californians.
