The iPhone is a line of Internet and multimedia enabled smartphones designed and marketed by Apple Inc.

Main interface components: Direct interaction, multi-touch contact, a multi-user experience, and object recognition. Direct interaction: Facility to manage digital information with hand gestures and touch instead on mouse and keyboard. Multi-touch contact: User need not use only one finger to manage digital data. If user dips five fingers in five different colors in the on screen paint palette and draws five lines with five fingers, you get five lines with five colors. Multi-user experience: Typical computers accept only one keyboard and a mouse. Microsoft Surface accepts multiple inputs from multiple users. More than one person sitting across the Surface, can do independent work on the same Surface. Object recognition: The system can identify physical objects placed on the Surface. It can relate the appropriate software for the appropriate item placed on surface. Objects may be recognized based on their shape or on special codes ( like barcodes) affixed to them.
