Infograph details ten years of the Apple iPhone
Ok iPhone owners, who is taking their handset to Chuck E. Cheese's on Thursday to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the smartphone's first launch? Yeah, technically this is an anniversary and Chuck E. Cheese's is more suited for birthday celebrations. Still, you get the idea. On June 29th, 2007, Apple launched the iPhone after consumer demand was brought to a boil between the January unveiling of the phone and the actual launch.

Since the original iPhone model, a lot of changes have been made to the product including the introduction of the App Store, the release of different variants of the device with varying screen sizes, and more. It certainly has been quite a ride for Apple iPhone fans and users. Apple is now the most valuable company in the world, led by sales of its handset. And the iPhone is the most used camera in the world.

A company called Neerja Softwares has taken the time to produce an infographic that details the major events related to the Apple iPhone from 2007 to 2017. You don't have to be an iPhone user or Apple fan to enjoy reading about the device that gets credit for kicking off the world's love affair with the smartphone. To start viewing the infographic, click on the slideshow below. We've cut it up into handy, easy to read bite-sized images just for you.

Sounds like an Apple advertisement to me. Wish my Ad Blocker would catch these types of articles.

"Wish my Ad Blocker would catch these types of articles." LMAO... But I gotta agree, though.

Chevy back in the old days had an S-10. How much you bet the Samsung S10 will be wayyyyyyyy better than Apple I-10? lol On topic. Its nice to see that the iPhone has lasted 10 years. Looking back from now back to then, not much has changed. Apple still riding on the backs of others to stay on top, but not offering much unique or their own. The iPhone has been a great device, it just not what I would expect from a company with Apple's money. Its leaps ahead in nothing, and behind in almost every category. Takes the worse pictures in its price range. Has the most mediocre displays in its price range, slowest charging phone in its price range. The iPhone today is exactly what it was in 2007. A Feature-phone with some "smart" abilities. Can't compare to competition, because no one with a highend phone, has one as bad as this one.

I have a serious question: Why do people even come to this site if their just gonna bitch every time one of these "paid Apple ads" comes about? Aren't you already contradicting your own viewpoint as soon as you click said article? Isn't the whining only gonna generate MORE clicks? They run ads for Sammy and the gang every other day and, spoilers, I don't read them. If you want fluff pieces to cease... stop engaging them!

Because people hate apple, for only one reason, apple is number one company in the world and people hate that. I’m not apple fan, but this’s the true.

And that type of thinking shoud change; to hate a brand just because it's number one. What happens when Samsung overtakes Apple, will the so-called 'loyal fans' start hating Samsung instead? I don't think think that would suit the definition of sensibility or adulthood.

I can say people hate Samsung for the same reason- success.

But more people seem to hate Apple here, though.

No one here hates Apple. We hates their fans because they don't come here to talk tech and enjoy all tech as a great awesome benefit to mankind. We watch instead them fodder on phone sthat they dont like, make false claims about their overpriced POS, while trying to down-talk everyone else's shoice. We dont have an issue with Apple, or these male APple articles. What we do get tired of is all the ass-kissing and sausage deep-throating of Apple and not other worthy tech companies, no matter who it may be. They all offer things of benefit to us no matter the brand. The Fanboys are what makes it suck to come here an read and that includes the douchebag Apple kissing writers especially. Apple isn't number one, except at bulls**t, just like what you're spewing! Lots of people who come here dont have or own Samsung devices and they dont like these articles. So the fact you keep even mentioning Samsung as if they are the only Android OEM, makes you look like the stupidest troll you are.

I've been commenting here since 2008. So, unlike you, I've seen the change here. It's definitely a pro Apple website.

off topic questions, in a way,.. didn't Apple acquire Liquid Metal tech licensing, or something like that, a couple of years back?! did that ever make it to any of the iphone/ipad? just wondering, since no iphone 8 rumors mention that, ...yet.

An iPhone 8 rumor mentioned liquidmorphium being used for the chassis of the next iPhone, some time ago.

This articles says and I quote - Nothing really going on in Apple's world, so let's just make up and article so no one forgets about Apple. Because the day won't be right without an Apple article. Even though literally there is a phone coming out that can fill the space every day almost.

Phonearena gallery viewer sucks on desktop - so mush screen space wasted on that grey background. I want to see the pictures fill my screen - not bloody grey nothingness and an oversize ad!

What doesn't suck.........ads, comments section, troll bans, pop-ups and referrals, techiexp1969, etc. Lesson: All the annoyance in the above things need to stop. Such as ads redirecting us to external sites and Techie saying in post no.12 that 'no one here hates Apple'. I mean, it couldn't be techie definitely, could he be??
