History of iPhone: From revolution to what comes next

Apple introduced the original iPhone back in 2007, instantly obsoleting every other smartphone on the planet in every way that mattered. Over the next two years, with the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS, Apple increased functionality while simultaneously lowering price, taking the smartphone fully out of the niche and making it mainstream. The iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S continued that trend, bringing support for broader carriers and faster speeds, better displays and new, natural language interfaces. iPhone took manufacturing to new levels and the screen to new heights, but most importantly it set the stage for what's coming next - iOS 7 and the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, and more. Before we embark on that brave new future, however, we're going to take a look back. This is the story of Apple's phone. Of Steve Jobs' phone. Of the iPhone. And for many of us, our phone.

Nokia claims Lumia 925 takes better pictures than iPhone 5. Well, we'll be the judge of that!

In Apple's own ads for the iPhone 5 they claim that more photos are taken every day on the iPhone than on any other camera. Nokia has taken this theme with a "better photos every day" claim.

Bored again: Does the iPhone lull have you checking out other phones?

It's easy to succumb to envy in the mobile world. The iPhone 5 is currently the oldest flagship smartphone on the market. Meanwhile Android OEM's such as Samsung, Sony, LG, HTC, and Motorola seem to be releasing new phones every week. Nokia is dropping new Windows Phones fairly regularly, and even BlackBerry has put out three new phones in the last six months. Against all that, it's easy to see why gadget geeks with big phone love could be eyeing - or even trying - alternate phones while they wait. Given some thought the iPhone 5 was boring at launch, is it possible even iPhone owners are bored now?

Belkin Charge and Sync Dock for iPhone 5 review: A stylish and practical addition to your desktop or nightstand

For years, Apple made an official dock to accompany a wealth of their products in the iPod and iPhone line. With the replacement of the 30-pin dock connector in the iPhone 5 with Lightning, many – myself included – would have hoped, perhaps expected a new dock from Apple to go with it. That never happened, and so we must look towards the third-party manufacturers, like Belkin. I recently picked up one of their Charge and Sync Docks, and it's a pretty nice little accessory to have sat on my desk. It's good, but by no means perfect. Let's take a look.

From 2G to 4G: How to make sure you get the T-Mobile iPhone 5 performance you deserve!

After its failed merger with AT&T, it seemed that T-Mobile was doomed. But the company has come roaring back with a 4G network buildout, game-changing contract deals for its customers, and an agressive marketing campaign. I decided to switch to T-Mobile when I got my iPhone 5, but I ran into a few roadblocks that finally got sorted this past weekend. I figured I'd pass along some pointers for others stuck in the same boat.
