The iPhone, a game-changing piece of technology that was unveiled to the world by the late Steve Jobs, was made available for purchase exactly fifteen years ago today.
In 2007, Steve Jobs announced the first iPhone, which went on sale on June 29th of the same year. A phone, an iPod, and an internet mobile communicator are not three independent devices, as Jobs famously declared. He went on to say that “Apple is going to reinvent the phone” today.

The iPhone has had a profound impact on the world and the mobile technology sector since its debut. Only 74 days after the iPhone’s June 29, 2007 introduction, Apple revealed that it had sold over 1 million units. The original iPhone cost $499.
The iPhone has undergone a major transformation over the past 15 years, with new features like iOS and the App Store, which were not available on the original model. In an interview published yesterday, Apple’s Greg Joswiak and other executives involved in the iPhone’s development talked about what it was like to debut it, and how it shaped mobile technology for years to come.
