Ten Years Later – A Look Back at the History of the iPhone

Ten Years ago today – June 29, 2007 – the device that would change the world was released.

About six months after Apple CEO Steve Jobs took the stage at Macworld in San Francisco to announce the first iPhone, it finally arrived on store shelves for the eager masses.

The iPhone’s impact on technology, culture and the way we communicate with each other can’t be overstated. And while the Rocket Yard team could go on and on about the iPhone, we think it’s better to let those involved in its creation take you on a stroll down memory lane.

The recently released The One Device: The Secret History of the iPhone offers a look at the iPhone’s origin story. And you can get a sample of the deep insight in the book with an excerpt recently shared by The Verge.

As for the original unveiling by Jobs, you can see the entire presentation in the video below:
