Not many companies in the world can make that amount of profit which Apple does from the iPhone. Smartphone was a new product category been created. Even 10 years back there was no such product like iPhone which the iPhone and its imitators could represent that in recent times is most desired by the humans.

1. Liquid crystal display

2. Memory chips

3. Tiny microprocessors

6. Fast-Fourier- Transform algorithms – clever bits of maths that make it possible to swiftly turn analogue signals such as sound, visible lights and radio waves into digital signals that computer can handle.

7. The Internet – a smartphone is not a smartphone without internet.
