That’s how Apple reinvented the phone. The mobile industry was revolutionised from keyboard to touch screen, camera pixels, high end technological updates and many more.

From iPhone to iPhone 7 and 7+ today, Apple has proved its words. A lot has changed in the last 10 years.

Steve jobs introduced the iPhone with these words : 

You know, everybody has a cell phone, but I don’t know one person who likes their cell phone. I want to make a phone that people love.

So let’s not use a stylus. We’re going to use the best pointing device in the world. We’re going to use a pointing device that we’re all born with – born with ten of them. We’re going to use our fingers. We’re going to touch this with our fingers. And we have invented a new technology called multi-touch, which is phenomenal. It works like magic.

First was the mouse. The second was the click wheel. And now, we’re going to bring multi-touch to the market. And each of these revolutionary interfaces has made possible a revolutionary product – the Mac, the iPod and now the iPhone.

Steve Jobs, 2007.
