Watch Steve Jobs Introduce the Original iPhone in 2007
Ten years ago today, on January 9, 2007, Steve Jobs introduced iPhone to the world.
In a highly anticipated keynote presentation, Jobs famously announced what seemed like three different products: a widescreen iPod with touch controls, a revolutionary mobile phone, and a breakthrough internet communications device… of course this was soon to be revealed as all contained within the same device; the iPhone. The rest, as they say, is history.
As iPhone turns ten years old, it’s worth watching the full MacWorld 2007 presentation of Steve Jobs introducing the very first iPhone to the world. If you’re feeling nostalgic or just want to see one of Jobs most legendary presentations, it has been embedded below for easy viewing:
Whether you’ve had an iPhone since the very beginning, or are a newcomer to the platform, it’s fun to look back a decade and see how the genuinely revolutionary product was unveiled and demoed. It’s not hyperbole to say the iPhone changed consumer electronics, cell phones and smartphones forever, completely changing the expectations of what a phone can do and what a phone should be.

A month after the device debuted on stage, the very first iPhone commercial was aired on TV, which is a classic worth watching as well.
It certainly makes you wonder, where will iPhone be in another 10 years?
