The internet revolution
The iPhone literally put the internet in everyones pocket. Steve Jobs described the first iPhone as a revolutionary mobile phone and a break through Internet communications device.
According to Ericsson, there is no match between voice and data traffic. Data traffic has gone up to nearly 10 TB over the last decade whereas voice traffic has been nowhere near this huge figure.

Photography From a hobby to part of everyday lives
Smartphones have allowed us to take photos everywhere we go. With photo-editing apps and rise of social media platforms, it gave us a great reason to post our photos regularly.
According to Key Point Intelligence forecast for 2017, almost 1.2 trillion digital photos will be taken out of which 85% will be taken on smartphones. Now thats something huge and clearly shows the trend being changed.

A fast becoming obsession
Thanks to smartphones, people all over the world spent their majority time consuming media last year. Socialising now occurs on various social media platforms and over mobile connections. This has also resulted in less reading of physical newspapers and watching television.
