If you were in grade school in the mid 1990’s, it wouldn’t be hard for you to remember how popular MAC computers were back then. MAC computers were well preferred over Microsoft windows based software, because of their user-friendly operating system. However, in the late 1990’s windows PC became more popular than the MAC. Nevertheless, when Apple announced the release of the iPhone, people had high expectations; the iPhone was a new revolution that had re-defined the standards of how a cell phone should be, in fact it became so popular that Apple has sold over 100 million phones since its launch in 2007. So how did the iPhone become so popular? First of all, don’t forget that the iPhone is manufactured by Apple Inc. Apple has managed to established an excellent reputation over the past decade, because Apple had a history of being able to deliver what the average consumer is looking for. Second reason: Steve Jobs was an icon for many people; time after time, Jobs had been rated the best CEO in the technology industry and met the expectations of his followers by delivering innovative products. Third Reason: touch screens; although touch screen technology was already in the market, it was pathetic. Apple managed to perfect this technology and utilize it in its iPhone. The result, a touch screen phone that feels so natural, people immediately became use to the idea of using it. Third reason: elimination of the physical keyboard; Jobs held the belief that keyboards are relics and the future lies in touch technology, as a result, Jobs took the gamble of eliminating the physical keyboard from the iPhone and it paid off.
Even today the iPhone is at the top, despite the fact that Apple’s competitors are coming out with cheaper alternatives, similar to the iPhone, such as Android and Windows phones. Nonetheless, like all other mobile devices, iPhones do not have built in file security software which means that your personal files and images can be accessed by anyone who has physical access to your iPhone. Imagine if your iPhone gets lost and you had stored personal information such as credit card numbers on your iPhone, to add insult to injury, an identity thieve discovers your phone. He takes your phone home and starts searching for personal information on you. He finds your detailed credit card information stored on your iPhone, naturally, he charges up thousands of dollars, until it’s too late. Right about now, you’ll be telling yourself, that’s never going to happen with me; conversely, you couldn’t be more wrong. The question is not if you will become victim of ID theft, it’s a question of when and where. Now might be shaking in your boots just thinking about what can happen with your personal information and might be contemplating the idea of deleting your personal information before something bad happens to you.
