16 years ago very few people had mobile phones with QWERTY keyboards. Many attended the presentation of a revolutionary product with a common device that “only” calls and sends SMS. On January 9, 2007, Steve Jobs showed the world the first iPhone.

The presentation took place outside of that year’s CES at Macworld San Francisco, and the keynote began with the Apple founder inviting audiences to “make history together.” However, before it reaches iPhone, It covered changes in Mac computers, data on iTunes music and movie sales, and how the iPod became the world’s most popular music player..

But after the 24-minute presentation, the then-CEO of the Cupertino company got to the point that no one knew he was waiting for. At the time, there were several rumors that Apple was getting into the mobile phone business. “This is the day I’ve been waiting for two and a half years,” Jobs said.

At the time, Apple was hoping to get a 1% share of the mobile phone market, which would mean selling 10 million iPhones in the first year as there were about 1 billion devices. LIt took just 74 days for the company to sell the first million of the new phones.it reached users only after five months.

16 years later, Apple still struggles to reach sales of 2 billion iOS devices (including iPad and iPod touch). This could have been mid-2021 without the Covid-19 pandemic, but slowdown in sales delayed the milestone.

What is known is that there are over 1 billion active iOS devices.. All this after that Steve Jobs presentation, which can be watched in full and with subtitles on YouTube:
