An iPhone home screen from 2010 might as well be a relic to iPhone owners today, nearly decade later.

How to update Snapchat on your iPhone in the App Store, if it isn't updating automatically

  How to update Snapchat on your iPhone in the App Store, if it isn't updating automatically You can manually update Snapchat on your iPhone by going to the App Store. Snapchat will often update automatically on your iPhone, but if it hasn't, you'll see the option to update to the most recent version in the App Store. Here's how to update Snapchat on an iPhone.Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.Snapchat is constantly rolling out new changes, improvements, and bug fixes to improve its mobile app.Major updates in the past have included the addition of group chats, the incorporation of Bitmojis, and the ability to send interactive filters - just to name a few.

The most obvious difference between a home screen from long-ago 2010 and today is the size. Though the iPhone arguably changed the game and ushered us into an age of smartphones, old screens from 2010 now look dated and tiny. The iPhone 4 had a 3.5-inch display, compared to a 4.7-inch display on the iPhone 8, and the largest-yet 6.5-inch iPhone 11 Pro Max display.

How to select multiple photos on your iPhone, or select all photos in your Photos app at once

  How to select multiple photos on your iPhone, or select all photos in your Photos app at once You can select multiple photos on your iPhone at once using the "Select" command. The Photos app has a "Select" command on every screen and in every folder, so you can use it anywhere. You can also select all the photos in a folder or all the photos on your iPhone by tapping and dragging your finger around. You'll select all the photos in the current location as the iPhone scrolls through photos.After making your selection, you can tap the "Delete" or share button to delete or share them.Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

The screen didn't take up the whole iPhone, either - this model still had the home button, although it was pre-Touch ID.

In 2010, iPhones came with some of the same built-in apps that they do today, like Photos, Messages, Camera, and Notes, but the icons are notably different. Settings, Photos, and Maps, in particular, have been updated since - this is what they look like today, compared to the photo above:

iOS 4, which came out along with the iPhone 4, also changed the possibilities of home screens with the addition of folders. Like "utilities" on the above example, iPhone owners could finally combine apps by category, function, or however else worked best for them.

Finally, the 2010 home screen is missing some apps that would become nearly essential to smartphone owners within a few years. For example, Instagram launched in 2010, but it lacked many of the features that made it popular. Snapchat and Tinder didn't exist until 2012, and the new home of viral content,TikTok, wouldn't launch in the US until August 2018. This iPhone also had iTunes, one of Apple's all-time most hated products, which is officially on its way out.
