Fifteen years ago to this day, the revolutionary device iPhone introduced to the world by the late Steve Jobs officially went on sale.
The first iPhone was announced by Steve Jobs on January 9, 2007, and went on sale on June 29, 2007. “One iPod, one phone, one mobile Internet communicator… these are not three separate devices,” he said. Jobs. “Today, Apple is going to rebuild the phone,” he said.
Since its launch, the iPhone has changed the world and the mobile technology industry forever. After its launch on June 29, 2007, it took just 74 days for Apple to announce that it had sold over 1 million iPhones. The first iPhone sold for $499.
Fifteen years later, the iPhone has fully evolved, with iOS and the App Store featuring advanced display capabilities and cameras that the first iPhone did not have. In an interview published yesterday ahead of the anniversary, Greg Joswiak of Apple and other Apple executives involved in the development of the iPhone discussed what it was like to launch the iPhone and how it would define the industry for years to come.
