History of the iPhone 3GS 32GB
More than 1 million people, in only eight countries, queued up to own Apple's third generation smartphone, the iPhone 3GS. New and existing customers were not only excited about the updated operating system that was twice as fast as the 3G model, but they were also thrilled to have a 32GB model that provided four times as much storage space as the original version.
Although the iPhone 3GS 32GB smartphone was released as Apple's high-end model in June 2009, just one year later is was discontinued and replaced with the fourth generation iPhone 4. Before its retirement, the 3GS did receive the iPhone 4's updated operating system, which introduced a multitude of enhancements. The phone continues to be supported with important upgrades, and with its availability in more than 80 countries, it is still a highly sought after product.

The phone also included copy and paste functions, stereo Bluetooth and an iPhone version of Spotlight search.
Exclusive features included text zoom, a color inverter and a remote wipe security program in case the phone was lost or stolen.

Students were targeted with access to free educational materials on iTunes U, while fitness buffs were able to use the smartphone with Nike + shoes that incorporated a sensor for tracking running miles and communicating with technologically advanced gym systems.Sell a Different iPhone >>
