Let’s Celebrate! The iPhone Turns 10 Years Old

January 12, 2017

Once upon a time, not so long ago, people did not have smartphones like we see today. Gasp! This is true. In fact, the image below was one of the coolest phones of those times, the Motorola Razr. The phone could store 5.5 MB of data (about the size of … wait for it … two photos!) and if you were okay with really, really slow speed, you could send and receive emails and browse the web.

So what changed? Well, 10 years ago, Apple launched the iPhone. Steve Jobs, the CEO of Apple Computers, went on stage and said, “Every once in a while, a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything.” Then he pulled out the iPhone. The crowd went wild after seeing what the phone could do. (A great camera! Visual voicemail! An easy interface, and most importantly, a touch screen! )The iPhone has been credited with starting a revolution of smartphones that continues to this day. Happy 10th birthday, iPhone!
