The First iPhone Was Released on June 29, 2007

Before June 29th, 2007, everyone (somehow!) lived without an iPhone.

2007 might not seem like that long ago, but can you imagine functioning without your iPhone? In 2007, you would have had to brave the world without a mini computer in your pocket, and that makes it feel very far away.

That’s right! We’re celebrating the ninth anniversary of the release of the iPhone this month!

On January 9th, 2007, Steve Jobs introduced the world to the iPhone, promising it would hit the market that summer. When it did a few months later – on June 29th, 2007, to be exact – it made quite a splash. Hundreds of customers lined up outside of Apple stores anticipating the 6:00 p.m. release. Technology analysts estimate that as many as 700,000 iPhones were sold during the first week alone. And the rest is history.

Only 74 days after the iPhone launched, Apple announced that iPhone sales surpassed 1 million.  To truly grasp the genius behind Steve Jobs, I would suggest reading the fairly comprehensive biography, “Steve Jobs” by Walter Isaacson.  I was impressed, saddened, shocked, and in awe of the man that he was.  He changed the way we use our telecommunication devices and our lives will never be the same.

Time Magazine declared the iPhone the “Best Invention of the Year” in November 2007.  The article stated that the iPhone distinguished itself by its appearance, feel, operating system, and most of all, how it redefined mobile phones.

Life without the iPhone is hard to imagine. We’ll be thinking about this important technological milestone on June 29thThe Maria Sanchez Show will also be covering major events like the iPhone release on our newest program, Shadow Politics with Senator Michael D. Brown. Tune in on Sundays at 4:00 p.m. PDT/7:00 p.m. EDT.
