Apple iPhone 3GS

Brilliant Design meets Elegant Interface

Since its release in 2007, the revolutionary iPhone has managed to corner a significant portion of the market. Each successive iPhone model has sported exciting new features that have solidified its brand appeal.

Year after year the iPhone manages to maintain a comfortable familiarity and pleasant consistency that longtime users appreciate, while iOS is undoubtedly the most intuitive mobile operating system in existence.

The iPhone has been available in 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB configurations and has remained a solid smartphone choice for nearly a decade.

From the Apple initiate to the technically savvy, all will enjoy the elegant interface, beautiful design, and intuitive nature of the iPhone.
