Watch 3 Interesting Videos on the History of iPhone
If you’re a fan of Apple history and iPhone lore (the iPhone is 10 years old this year!), you’ll enjoy watching this trio of video clips featuring various interviews with some of the original iPhone team members who were tasked with developing the project.
Below you will find a 10 minute clip from The Wall Street Journal featuring interviews with various former Apple executives, an 8 minute clip from CBS, and a lengthy discussion and interview from The Computer History Museum, each about the development of the iPhone.
WSJ Video: “How The iPhone Was Born: Inside Stories of Missteps and Triumphs”

On the iPhone’s 10th birthday, former Apple executives Scott Forstall, Tony Fadell and Greg Christie recount the arduous process of turning Steve Jobs’s vision into one of the best-selling products ever made.
If the embedded video doesn’t work for whatever reason you can watch it on WSJ.com instead.
Computer History Club Interview with Scott Forstall
If you found that shorter clip of Apple history and iPhone history to be interesting, you’ll likely enjoy another recent interview with ex-Apple employee Scott Forstall at The Computer History Museum, this one is 40 minutes long and is also embedded below for easy viewing:
The lengthy interview with Scott Forstall might make you wish he was still at Apple working on the iPhone and other projects he clearly was (is) passionate about, but he was widely assumed to be fired from the company after Steve Jobs passed away.
CBS: “Happy 10th birthday, iPhone”
Another interesting 8 minute video segment comes from CBS on the same topic, described as follows:
In June 2007 Apple released the very first iPhone – an iPod, phone and Internet connection all in one, operated via touchscreen and as futuristic-looking as a sci-fi gizmo. The earliest iPhone didn’t have all the features or apps it has today, but it was revolutionary nonetheless. David Pogue, of Yahoo Tech, who was one of the very first journalists to play with the iPhone before its release, reports on the history of the personal device that changed the world.
With this year being the 10th year anniversary of the iPhone launch – it’s public unveiling was January 9, 2007 and it was first made available to purchase on June 29, 2007 – we’re likely to see more noteworthy clips and interviews too.
