Have you ever wondered how we got from no phones at all to today's iPhone in a little over 100 years? Consider this brief history.

The first acoustic telephone was developed in 1672, operating much like toys consisting of two tin cans connected by a wire. It wasn't until the 1800s, however, that the first telephone cables were laid.

These spanned the Atlantic Ocean and allowed telegraph messages in Morse code between Europe and America.

In 1876, Alexander Graham Bell invented the modern telephone, allowing speech to be transmitted electronically. Wired telephones became popular during the 1900s - first in public places, and later in individual homes.

The first commercial cellular network - 1G Generation - was launched in 1981. Cell phones at that time were described as "bricks." During the 1990s and 2000s, cell phone designs became smaller and flip phones were developed.

Today, touchscreens are the norm, and most people use a smartphone. For many, the smartphone is also their primary computer.

The Apple iPhone is one of the most popular brands. It was first released in 2007, and nearly 2 billion have been sold around the world. The technology used to develop the iPhone has also enhanced drones, home appliances, watches, self-driving cars, and more.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing an iPhone

iPhone Drawing - Step 1


1. Begin by outlining the cartoon phone and its screen. Start by drawing a large rectangle with rounded corners. This outlines the device.

Then, within the first rectangle, draw a slightly smaller rectangle. Notice the bulge at the top of the screen; use additional straight lines to create this small, rounded trapezoid shape.

2. Use a curved line to enclose the areas beneath the bulge. Inside this shape, shade a small rounded rectangle. This is the phone's speaker. Then, enclose narrow trapezoids with rounded corners on both sides of the phone. These are the buttons.

3. Draw a small circle next to the speaker to indicate the camera. Next, we'll learn how to draw the back of the phone. First, enclose a large rectangle with rounded corners to outline the shape of the phone.

Then, draw a square with rounded corners in one corner of the rectangle. This is where the phone's camera is located.

4. Draw three circles within the square to indicate the camera lenses. Then, enclose several narrow trapezoids with rounded corners on each side of the phone. These should be a mirror image of those on the front view.

5. Draw two more smaller circles within the square. Then, draw a circle within each of the three original circles. In each of these, shade an even smaller circle.
