Ten years of iPhone

Today marks the 10th anniversary of iPhone. I had to browse back ten years in the archive to find my old post Day of the iPhone release. I wrote stuff like “I just hope that the iPhone will live up to the hype”. Well, I guess we found out the answer to that one. :)

Ten years later, iPhone is one of the most iconic products of the modern era. Just as Steve Jobs said, it changed everything. And with reaching one billion sold units in 2016, Apple won’t kill it anytime soon.
