Compare Every iPhone Model Ever Made

Chart the evolution of the iPhone

iPhone 8 series
image credit: Apple Inc.

Each successive generation of the iPhone has added new features and, in almost all cases, they've gotten better. From the original iPhone (which looks kind of old and pokey now, but was a pretty big step forward in terms of ease of use and multitouch) through to the iPhone X and 8 series, each step in iPhone history has introduced big changes to the iPhone line up.

The chart below compares the hardware specifications of each generation of the iPhone so you can get an easy sense of how things have changed through iPhone history.

 This chart is useful if you're not a history buff, too.

While you can't readily buy an iPhone 3GS (and what would be the point? It can't run the new OS or any new apps anyway), it's still easy to get 7 Plus, 6S Plus, or 6. So when you're thinking about what phone to buy—especially if you're looking to get the best deal—being able to easily compare features in this way can help you make the right choice.
