10 Years of iPhone

It’s been 10 years since the first iPhone was launched. On January 9th, 2007, When Steve Jobs stood on a stage and introduced the device that would come to define the biggest tech company in the world — the iPhone. Exactly ten years later, Apple is celebrating that announcement at Macworld 2007, remembering the “revolutionary product” that Steve Jobs promised, and the famous keynote in which he revealed its existence.
It was named the Phone, but Jobs described Apple’s new device a three-in-one product: “a widescreen iPod with touch controls, a revolutionary mobile phone and a breakthrough internet communications device.” His keynote may be a decade old, and the iPhone has gone through multiple revisions since, but how he envisaged the device being used is still accurate today. As well as being a functional phone, he described a device that could play movies, podcasts, and TV shows, as well as transfer your browser bookmarks and sync your photos.
