Apple reinvents the (i)Phone.
Since the first iPhone launched in 2007, we’ve all become familiar with this slogan. And just last week, Apple announced it would do it again with the iPhone 14. So of course, we had to make an iPhone infographic to celebrate!
Packed with a whole new host of innovative features — a 48 MP camera, an A16 Bionic Chip, Emergency SOS via Satellite, Crash Detection, all-day battery life and a reimagined Dynamic Island, to name a few — Apple’s latest instalment promises to deliver big.
Curious to see how the iPhone has progressed over the years, and how different models and features stack up?

3 design tips, based on this #inspographic
1. Text-heavy? Establish a clear hierarchy
Since the goal of infographics is to simplify complex data, add visual appeal and defend against information overload, establishing a clear visual hierarchy is key.
As a design principle, visual hierarchy helps organize information so viewers can scope out important details and stay engaged with what’s on the page. This is particularly important for information-rich content!
Though text-heavy — necessarily so, given the task at hand — this evolution of the iPhone infographic avoids overwhelming thanks to a focused layout that uses repetition, emphasis (more on this in a second) and consistent alignment.
The bottom line? With a clear visual hierarchy, any design can pack an educational, yet digestible, punch.
2. Create brand consistency and visual appeal with pops of color
While we chose a light background in our iPhone infographic to enhance legibility, don’t feel like you need to shy away from color completely!
Notice how each icon features a bright hue derived from Apple’s brand color palette. This adds visual interest in a way that stays consistent with the brand.
What’s more, the pops of color work to reinforce our infographic’s visual hierarchy — capturing readers’ attention while carrying sight lines down the page.
3. Emphasize for easy comparison
Looking for a way to help readers scan the page and make comparisons easily? Make sure to incorporate emphasis into your design!
As a design principle, emphasis signals important information at a glance, so viewers can identify and cross reference features without reading everything. Our evolution of the iPhone infographic accomplishes this by varying font weights. Specifically, our designer emphasized the model numbers, tech specs and iOS updates.
