The First Ever iPhone Commercial [Video]
This is where it all started from, the classic “Hello” iPhone commercial for the very first iPhone. The TV ad was an almost instant classic that featured scene after scene of famous actors answering phones in famous movies.
As you watch, you undoubtedly will recognize many of these from movies and moments in cinematic history. And, as if Apple knew it would be cementing it’s place in popular culture, the commercial wraps up with a “Hello” on a first-gen Apple iPhone with a call from ‘John Appleseed’, before flashing an Apple logo.
Embedded below, years past the original Apple iPhone commercial is still well worth watching again:
This first aired on Oscars night in February of 2007, and it was the very first commercial to show off the iPhone, a full four months before it was officially released in June of 2007.
Do you remember this commercial airing on TV? It sure seems like a while ago doesn’t it? And here we are, years later, with a myriad of other great iPhone advertisements and TV spots, but even after all this time, this one is still special.
And in case you forgot, here’s what the original first generation iPhone looked like:
I think the first iPhone actually aged very well, the aluminum back is beautiful, and the shiny Apple logo matches the front glass and shiny bezels well. Perhaps the only thing that didn’t age gracefully was the super early iOS (then called iPhone OS), or the now considered tiny 3.5″ color display. But it’s still a beauty, and a classic.
