Apple iPhone is both a mobile phone as well as an iPod - made available within a sophisticated profile. Most of the features of the iPod are available in the Apple iPhone. A web browser, an organizer, a note taker and a camera make the Apple iPhone highly versatile in its capabilities and one of its kind. This revolutionary "handset-cum-iPod" combines the best of hardware as well as software features and is empowered to realize quite a few fantasies of tech-savvy users. As a matter of fact, the high-end functionalities of the Apple iPhone make it immensely popular among 'next-generation' users who are interested in trying out the latest gadgets - as soon as they hit the market.
Some features of the Apple iPod has been substituted and made all the more user-friendly in the Apple iPhone. The inaccuracy of the round click-wheel of the Apple iPod, for instance, has been done away with. The click-wheel has been replaced with a touch screen featuring Cover Flow in the Apple iPhone. Users could take advantage of the Cover Flow feature to flip though their collection of music files. Another merit of the iPhone is that the quality of audio is quite good. There is a built-in speaker that reproduces a range of audio frequencies during audio or video playback.
A physical mute switch is located above the rocker volume control. Users could use this switch to set the phone ringer and other audio signals to 'vibrate.' The Apple iPhone comes with earbud headphones; users need to just pinch these buttons to pause the music during incoming calls. However, there are some demerits to using the Apple iPhone as well. Users cannot copy files directly to the device. A direct access to a file system or a command line is conspicuous by its absence.
