On this day 13 years ago, Apple unveiled the first iPhone
13 years ago, late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs took to the stage at Macworld in San Francisco to unveil the first iPhone.
The introduction of the iPhone, which Steve Jobs first had the audience believing was three separate products: a wide-screen iPod with touch controls, a revolutionary mobile phone, and a breakthrough internet communications device was arguably one of the most iconic Apple product launches in history, with well over a billion iPhones sold since the device went on sale in 2007.
The iPhone was released in the United States on June 29, 2007 at the price of $499 for the 4 GB model and $599 for the 8 GB model. Unlike today’s iPhone 11 Pro Max which boasts a 6.5-inch OLED display, the original iPhone had a 3.5-inch screen with 320 x 480 pixel resolution compared to the 2688 x 1242 resolution 458 ppi found on today’s top model.
