Time flies when you’re having fun. It’s hard to imagine that it has been eight years since the announcement that had Apple’s former CEO, Steve Jobs, on stage announcing what would ultimately become one of the most popular devices on the planet.
On January 9, 2007, Steve Jobs announced the original iPhone. Back then it was missing things like copy and paste, could only connect to “2G” networks, and there wasn’t even an App Store to download all those great things we take advantage of these days. It may not seem like a long time, but in the technology world eight years seems like an eternity.
So sit back and check out the original announcement of the iPhone in all of its glory in the video below. And tell us, where were you when the original iPhone was announced?
