The iPhone ( EYE-fohn)
is a line of smartphones designed and marketed by Apple Inc. It runs Apple's iOS mobile operating system. The first generation iPhone was released on June 29, 2007;[16] the most recent iPhones, the seventh-generation iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S, were introduced on September 10, 2013.

The user interface is built around the device's multi-touch screen, including a virtual keyboard. The iPhone has Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity. An iPhone can shoot video (though this was not a standard feature until the iPhone 3GS), take photos, play music, send and receive email, browse the web, send texts, and receive visual voicemail. Other functions — video games, reference works, GPS navigation, social networking, etc. — can be enabled by downloading application programs (‘apps’); as of October 2013, the App Store offered more than 1 million apps by Apple and third parties.

The iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad run an operating system known as iOS (formerly iPhone OS). It is a variant of the same Darwin operating system core that is found in Mac OS X. Also included is the "Core Animation" software component from Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard. Together with the PowerVR hardware (and on the iPhone 3GS, OpenGL ES 2.0), it is responsible for the interface's motion graphics. The operating system takes up less than half a gigabyte.

The iPhone Home screen of iOS 7 shows most of the applications provided by Apple.

Haiku Time: an iPhone Haiku Generator
by Scott Metz on January 3, 2010
A young programmer (and Yale student), Luke Bradford, has created a haiku generator application for the iPhone and iPod Touch, called Haiku Time.

Here are some haiku that Haiku Time has generated:

Snow by the meadow
Sighing gently with the stars
The voice of the clouds

Spring day on the shore
The night laughing to the sea
Tell me of the dawn

Rose in the sunlight
Writing love songs to the sky
Murmurs of the past

THF Haiku
By Luke Bradford

A collection of hundreds of beautiful poems from around the world, THF Haiku puts haiku at your fingertips so you can enjoy them anywhere. Search through the library by author, source, or content, or shake your phone for a random selection from the entire collection.

As Jim Kacian, founder of The Haiku Foundation, says:
"Live with these poems a little bit every day and you will find yourself entering a world of special noticing, heightened significance, and more natural relationships."
