It’s good that you are looking forward to knowing when was the first iPhone comes out? For the starters, the first Apple iPhone was announced back on 9 January 2007, and later after five months Steve Jobs decided to launch the first iPhone on 29 June 2007 and did it successfully. We are living in 2020, so it’s been 13 years since Apple iPhone is winning the hearts of the people and incredibly expanding the business around the world, who would not want to buy iPhone that offers brilliant Camera Quality, Enhanced Security, Clean and Fast Interface, and one of the best Operating System.
Before iPhone was launched, there were still smartphones available, but you might be happy to use it due to its irrelevancy or display, however, in 2007 Apple turned the tables after pushing the iPhone in the Market. Let’s dig deeper and see Who Invented the iPhone? And Evolution of iPhone to date.
iPhone History Timeline and Success journey
Who Invented the iPhone?
The man behind iPhone is Steve Jobs, well it’s up to you, how do you take it, some people will say Steve Jobs and his team bought the iPhone in this world, while some will say Steve Jobs invented iPhone. That day Steve Jobs addressed iPhone as a “revolutionary and magical product that is literally five years ahead of any other mobile phone”, this line is may sound false during the release, but it all came true.
Then the iPhone became the undivided part of Apple, which was basically founded by Steve Jobs and Stephen Wozniak in 1976. Previously, Apple Corporate introduced the Macintosh in 1984, the very first computer to fit the Graphical User Interface and in 2001 they came up with a portable music player named iPod.

How Long are iPhones Built to Last?
That’s apparently a typical question to answer, though I’ll try to answer. The iPhones lifeline totally is up to the individual, how a user maintains the iPhone, how rough the user uses the iPhone, how well the iPhone battery is performing? and more.
I’m taking my case study and use-case to explain to you better the iPhone’s life. I’ve brought my first ever iPhone in 2014, that was iPhone 6, enriched with the latest functions, camera, and many more things that I was enjoying. Till date, I have that iPhone 6, roughly its been 6 years that I have the iPhone 6 in working condition, the battery is good, the display is not broken yet, speakers are far better than expected, the camera doesn’t have any scratches so it is also good, but the one thing I don’t have is the latest iOS update.
Basically, Apple only provides the updates for three to four years, so by force people have to buy the new iPhone to get hands-on new features, and most important reason is, in many instances, the iPhone’s hardware parts don’t work with the latest iOS version, ultimately there is no meaning of releasing the updates to the older iPhones.
Coming back to the question, Apple has designed the iPhone to last longer than ever, only the battery and latest updates are the exceptions. You can use the iPhone for your entire life, however, compromising the latest features and may need to replace the battery.
