It was 10 years ago to the day when Steve Jobs stood on a stage at Macworld in San Francisco and gave the world its first glimpse of the iPhone. To mark the milestone, it is now possible to watch the Apple head honcho’s revolutionary keynote unveiling in full.
It’s difficult, if not impossible, to imagine a world without apps and mobile social networking, but back then a “tweet” was something associated with passerines and “uber” was a word only Germans were familiar with. In the sprawling speech, Jobs outlines his hopes for the technology and its capabilities, before cheekily dismissing the faculties of rival smartphones on the market. With well over 1 billion devices sold almost a decade on, it’s fair to say the Apple founder’s hubris was not misplaced.
Watch the footage above, and then take a 4K drone tour of Apple’s insane new campus.
