"Every once in a while a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything."

With those words Apple CEO Steve Jobs began his keynote address at Macworld San Francisco on January 9, 2007. In typical Jobs fashion, he went on to say that Apple was introducing "three revolutionary products" that day. The first was a widescreen iPod with touch controls, the second was a "revolutionary mobile phone" and the third was "a breakthrough internet communications device."

They were, of course, three products rolled into one: the iPhone. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Jobs died 10 years ago, but the iPhone has only gotten more ubiquitous. In the past 15 years, Apple has released at least one new iPhone every year, with the latest being its iPhone 13 lineup (the rumored iPhone 14 should be here in the fall).
