New book reveals that Steve Jobs wanted a back button for the Apple iPhone
The One Device, a new book about the OG iPhone, launches today
The comments made by Chuadhri are found in the new book, "The One Device: The Secret History of the iPhone." According to the book, Chaudri was able to talk Jobs out of this notion. He did this by telling him that to make people trust that the device will do what they want it to do, there should be no second button available on the iPhone.
The One Device, written by Brian Merchant, launches today and is available from Amazon for $19.04. That is a discount of $8.96 or 32% from the list price of $28. You don't have to be an Apple fan or even an iPhone user to find this a fascinating look at how one of the most important consumer products in history was made. It also gives readers a ringside seat during the sparring that took place during certain times when big decisions, like whether or not to include a back button, were made.
