Newly released video shows off dummy of upcoming iPhone in closer detail

The iPhone 10 years on: from innovation to compromise

Supersized smartphones is clearly the trend of 2017: massive new displays crammed inside phones with super skinny bezels.

The back of the iPhone 8 probably has the most "noise" and even then it is very minimal. "It is hard to think of another platform that has had such an impact in terms of changing consumer behaviour and providing new possibilities for businesses to change the way they interact with customers". But first - a look back from our man on the ground at its exciting announcement at Macworld 2007...

Do you have any moments to share about the first iPhone? Sure, feature phones have third party applications too, but these are relatively weak and limited applications that work with the middleware such as Java and BREW.

It was ten years ago, on June 29, 2007, when the first Apple iPhone went on sale.

Steve Jobs unveiled the device with a classic quote. He was one of four reviewers to first receive an iPhone. When he finished, everyone rose to their feet to give a wild ovation. Or vice versa. The smooth rounded edges of the iPhone 8 is nothing we haven't seen before.

Steve Ballmer said the iPhone had "no chance".

But as the iPhone grew in popularity due to its functionality, Apple also developed a following akin to a cult, based on some accounts.

First off, where did this money come from, and why had I gotten accustomed so quickly with cycling through this tech? "I can check Facebook whenever and it's great".

Take a look at the screen above and you'll notice an important icon is missing: the App Store.

In an attempt to cater to folks who still preferred Apple's smaller screens, which Apple ditched with the iPhone 5, Apple introduced the iPhone SE in 2016.

The next iPhone launched with what it was lacking the previous year. The 2MP camera and its big, blurry viewfinder was also for emergencies only. And there could be something even bigger on the way. Are you getting it? "Thank you to everyone at Apple for helping change the world every day", Cook said.

After the iPhone 3G, Apple began to release phones in a two-year cycle. The culmination of this work would finally be released to the world on 29 June 2007 as the iPhone, setting a standard in mobile design that would remain relatively unchanged for nearly a decade. I declined. I had breaking news from throughout the day, such as the riveting moments before the doors opened to the 100 people waiting in line; the chilling early-evening wait, as we learned AT&T might be sold out; and then the crushing last moments of the day, as 100 people on line outside the store were told the iPhone was sold out. Drawing to a close arguably one of the best action/thriller trilogies of the 21st century, The Bourne Ultimatum saw Matt Damon's amnesiac assasSin tying together threads that had kept fans in thrall since the first film five years previously.

Equipped with a stylus and touchscreen, the phone wasn't exactly a looker and it was never released to market, but it's interesting to see evidence of the process behind the creation of Apple's revolutionary device.

"For millions of people worldwide, the iPhone is about the internet and the camera", Ms Boyle said. Or so we thought...
