One of the most recognizable, as well as most commonly used phones in the world is the Iphone, as Apple has released a phone that many have found to be satisfactory for their communication needs. While not certainly everyone has one, and some even dislike the phone, the Iphone continues to bring in new customers with each newly added generation.
While the Iphone has many cool features and descriptions that make it stand out above other phones, their are many facts that many people don’t know about. Here are just four of the several facts that makes Iphones really unique in the cell phone world. Here are some interesting facts to remember about Iphones as mentioned in this infographic.

Through several tests and trials, users have found that the processing speed, memory size, and even the storage space are larger for the Iphone 5, when compared to the 2003 IMac G4. This is insane for the fact that the Iphone 5 only weighs 112 g, whereas the IMac weighs 10,400g.
2) The App Store Has Sold 50 Billion Apps.

This means their has been 50 billion downloads of apps from numerous sources, both free and premium games. This numerous is accurate as of 2012, so with the year being 2015, the store has probably sold even more apps, even billions more.
3) Iphone Is Available Globally.
While the Iphone certainly started out selling to only US and select country markets, the phone has made sales globally, with the phone being available in over 100 countries around the world. This was achieved in as little as 5 years, where the massive franchise of McDonald’s took over 50 years to reach its 100th country milestone.
