The iPhone from 2007 to 2017
At the Macworld 2007 event in San Francisco, Steve Jobs unveiled a three-in-one product. It was “a widescreen iPod with touch controls, a revolutionary mobile phone and a breakthrough internet communications device.”
Now that we are in 2017, the iPhone has continuously enriched people’s lives with over one billion sold. The latest incarnation of the product is now the iPhone 7. Before that, the device has quickly grown into a revolutionary platform for software, hardware and services integration.
The company did not stop there. Soon, it inspired new products, the iPad and the Apple Watch. Furthermore, millions of mobile apps were created essentially helpful to people’s daily lives.
“iPhone is an essential part of our customers’ lives, and today more than ever it is redefining the way we communicate, entertain, work and live,” said Apple’s current CEO Tim Cook. “iPhone set the standard for mobile computing in its first decade and we are just getting started. The best is yet to come.”
