Other significant features on the phone include a “Voice Memo Option”, a “help feature”, a “auto text option”, and a “key lock on demand feature” (Sweeny, 143).

Iphones also have a camera that supports video recording via third-party software. Iphones have a massive storage which is dedicated to storage of songs and videos. It should be noted that Iphones also have a central processing system clocked differently depending on the model, and they come with inbuilt memory, to support their functioning. Iphones also run an operating system, known as Iphone OS (Mark, Nutting and LaMarche, 45).
