Apple Executives Past and Present Recall 15 Years of the iPhone [VIDEO]

The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday premiered a new video series exploring 15 years of the iPhone through interviews with Apple executives, past and present. Apple’s first iPhone, the iPhone 2G, went on sale on June 27, 2007.

“Through interviews with current and former Apple executives, WSJ’s Joanna Stern traces how Apple’s invention matured and changed all of us—perhaps the youngest generation most of all,” the publication said about the new series.

Episode 1 of The iPhone Baby: How 15 Years Shaped a Generation is now available on The Wall Street Journal‘s website.

One of The Wall Street Journal‘s former columnists, tech enthusiast Walt Mossberg, was actually one of the first people (barring Apple employees) to go hands-on with the original iPhone back in the day.

Steve Jobs introduced the world to the iPhone on January 9, 2007. Apple executives from across the years also reacted to the 15th anniversary of the original iPhone’s launch earlier this year.

At WWDC 2022 earlier this month, Apple previewed iOS 16 — the latest iteration of the software that powers the iPhone experience. The Cupertino, California-based tech giant is expected to launch its upcoming iPhone 14 lineup later this year in September.
