Did you know that Steve Jobs introduced the original iPhone in 2007? The first iPhone was described as ‘revolutionary’. Designing and developing the iPhone started in 2004. The secretive project was called ‘Project Purple’. At the time, other ‘smart phones’ were only designed for making calls or other basic communication tasks. The iPhone was designed for communication, but also browsing the web, taking pictures or videos, listening to music, watching movies, playing games, and more. Since 2007 Apple has created 11 ‘generations’ of the iPhone, each with different or improved features.

At the time, other mobile phone companies created and sold many different types of handsets based on different intended markets (e.g. business or personal use). Depending on the market, the same handset might have features such as cameras, games, or the ability to play music added or removed. Apple streamlined its product line and offered one model of phone for all markets. The phone was higher-quality and cost more as well.
Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone as a “widescreen iPod with touch controls”, a “revolutionary mobile phone”, and a “breakthrough Internet communicator”. He said the phone was not just a communication tool, but a way of life.
The “i” in iMac, iPod, iPhone, or iPad stands for internet, individual, instruction, inform, or inspire.
