The original iPhone cost a whopping $600 (with a two-year contract, later reduced to $400) when it launched on June 29, 2007, but that didn't stop people from forming a quarter-mile-long line at Apple's flagship store in NYC to be the first to get it.

The device was revolutionary, of course, but many criticized its lack of 3G connectivity at the time.

Before this, iPhones used larger 30-pin dock connectors.

The presence of Siri on the device is a big hint; this is the first phone she ever appeared on.

Siri was a major selling point of the Apple iPhone 4S, released Oct. 14, 2011.

According to Apple CEO Tim Cook, the "S" in the phone's name stands for Siri.
