In 2010, with an intention to cripple the increasing stiffening competition from companies like the giant internet search engine company Google and others who are engaged in the smart phone business, Apple launched a new model of the iPhone that had a camera on the front face meant for video chats. The fourth generation phone became the most talked about smart phones among consumers, thus making it the most successful phone ever launched by Apple.
