On June 29, 2007, Apple released the first-generation iPhone. Apple's extraordinary mobile device put the world in your hand: You could make calls, listen to music, keep a calendar, browse the Web, send texts and emails, and ... use third-party webapps. It would be another year before the iPhone gained the ability to run native third-party apps (with the launch of the App Store and its initial 500 apps on July 11, 2008). Today, several million apps power every aspect of our digital lives -- communicating, mapping routes, checking the weather, travel planning, booking rides, editing photos and video, word processing, playing video games, binge-watching TV and movies, and finding romance.
The 4GB model cost $499, with the 8GB model going for $599 on-contract.
Over 1 billion iPhones have been sold worldwide since 2007.
Today, there roughly 2.2 million apps in Apple's app store.
