iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c reviews: 3 months later

Three months ago Apple, for the first time ever, released not one but two new iPhones in the same year - the forward thinking iPhone 5s and the fun and friendly iPhone 5c. Both were variants on last year's iPhone 5. The 5s kept the same design but added a monstrous new 64-bit Apple A7 chipset, Apple M7 motion coprocessor, an even better iSight camera, and the Touch ID fingerprint identity scanner. The 5c kept most of the same internals but switched to brightly colored plastic backs. It's a little early to determine just how successful Apple's strategy will be over the course of the year, but having used the new phones for 90 days, it's absolutely long enough to see how both phones are doing for us the consumers. Often lost among the endless marketshare, profit share, and usage share metrics are what matters most to us, the people that buy and live with the phones - how well they work for us not just on launch day, but every day.

How Google had to 'start over' on Android the day the iPhone was announced

Back when the very first iPhone was announced in 2007, it took many of us by surprise, including Google. What Steve Jobs held in his hand on stage that day was unlike any smartphone we'd seen to that date, and it set the precedent for what we see today not only from Apple. In a piece on The Atlantic, excerpts from Fred Vogelstein’s Dogfight: How Apple and Google Went to War and Started a Revolution, illustrate what happened next:

How carriers and subsidies are more like sharks and loans

Last week AT&T's Randall Stephenson was once again repeating the familiar refrain: that Apple and the iPhone (and now other premium smartphones, like Samsung's) demand far too high an up-front price from carriers. If anyone should be charging anyone too much, dammit, it's the carriers! Jean-Louis Gassée, once of Apple, now of Allegis Capital, lays out the case for their shameless complaints in his Monday Note:

Everything is a remix - even the iPhone!

Everything is a remix - the popular series that showed how films, including Star Wars, are never as original as we think they may be - has shifted attention towards the iPhone. In the video above, Kirby Ferguson highlights both the real-world object influence on the original iPhone design (skeuomorphism) and the influence of Android and Windows Phone on iOS 7.

Which iPhone was the most ground-breaking?

Every once in a while, a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything. Those were the words spoken as Steve Jobs hit the stage and introduced the very first iPhone to the world after having spent two and a half years working on the device. Looking back at that keynote, I'm not so sure everyone at that time felt the same way about it but if they didn't then, the chances are good that they do now.

The iPhone as a product has arguably gone on to reshape not only the smartphone industry but the wireless industry as a whole and while the very first iPhone takes much of that credit for a lot of people, a recent thread in the iMore Forums asks which iPhone do you think broke the most ground for Apple? Was it really the very first iPhone that took it mainstream popularity or was it another iteration?
