Everything you need to know about Apple's Retina-display packing, Apple A4 chipset running, FaceTime video calling, 720p video recording, totally re-designed iPhone 4
Steve Jobs returned to the WWDC keynote stage on June 7, 2010 to show us something we'd only thought we'd seen before. It had over 100 new features. Released on June 24 for $99/$199 on contract, it had an all-new design made of glass and stainless steel, with the antenna-band on the outside, an all-new 5mp/720p camera on the back, and a FaceTime camera on the front. It also had an all new 960x640 high-density Retina display and an Apple A4 processor that combined an ARM Cortex A8 and and PowerVR SGX535. It would also go on to become the first iPhone available on the Verizon network in the U.S. It was hot. It was the iPhone 4.
Code-named N90, it was version iPhone3,1, and model number A1332 (GSM) and A1349 (CDMA), Apple dropped the price of the iPhone 4 to $99 on contract in 2011, and $0 on contract in 2012. Although it remains available in China, the iPhone 4 was discontinued in the rest of the world in 2013.
