The first iPhone wasn’t really a smartphone

At the age of fifteen, the iPhone is a very well-rounded and self-confident teenager. Few things have seen so much flattery and refinement during their relatively short lifespan. This may be due to the extensive scrutiny the iPhone faced even before the late Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs took the stage at Macworld to unveil it on January 9, 2007.

The original iPhone — sometimes referred to as the “Jesus Phone” due to its ability to power and elevate an entire industry — was a pretty big deal. And a big risk. No other phone manufacturer, not the then-dominant BlackBerry or T-Mobile with the hugely popular Sidekick, has taken such a big swing.
