"It's hard to remember that at first, the iPhone didn't really have a fast internet connection, it was behind the other phones with an edge so it wasn't meant to play videos and it couldn't record videos", said Stein.

The iPhone 4, launched in 2010, introduced yet another redesign, this time with a glass body. It also lacked video recording, third-party apps, and Global Positioning System. And you could only get it on AT&T.

By now we're all abundantly aware of Apple's penchant for hyperbole, but back in 2007 Steve Jobs confidently changed the way Silicon Valley would stage their product reveals forever. Engineers and marketing executives alike anxious the new device would kill the iPod market that had driven Apple's corporate resurgence for five years.

"Its impact is huge", Tuong Nguyen, principal research analyst at Gartner told NBC News. There were many instances when Jobs took an example of other smartphones like the Moto Q, Blackberry, Palm Treo and the Nokia E62 and altered their flaws in favor of the iPhone.

Like many observers, Ad Age predicted it would fail because it was a "convergence device" - ie it did everything, as compared to Apple's iPod which did one thing very well.

The specs of the first iPhone are nearly comically basic compared to Apple's current offerings. By grouping suppliers together in close proximity so that they could rapidly collaborate to address changes in hardware or design, and demanding new untold levels of efficiency from the workforce, he set the stage for the modern model of device manufacturing-and the human rights woes that accompany it.

"Computing used to be something you do on a PC - now, who would have guessed ten years later you literally have a computer in your pocket?" "Today that app store is controlled by Apple". Now, anyone with coding skills has a chance to make create apps - and reap the rewards.

We still may not quite have internalized the sheer scale of the app economy that Apple spawned. And the original size looks quaint 10 years later - Apple now sells versions that are almost two times as big. The iPhone was the total opposite in comparison, offering a wider selection of apps and a better user experience.
