16 years ago, a server wrote about Apple as a layman on a personal blog that I don’t even remember the name of or the domain it was hosted on. I was 22 years old (who had them now) and my partner Pedro Aznar (among others) started Applesfera as a side project to Xataka.
It was almost a year before I started writing in this house, but I was very careful principle that happened. 16 years ago, Steve Jobs made history by introducing the iPhone and changing the world forever.
First came the smartphone. Then came the iPhone
There were rumors of the arrival of an Apple phone, but that was just the tip of the iceberg of what we got to see that day. The company had kept the iPhone that way top secret project, accessible only to the smartest workers. Whoever started developing the iPhone is gone. Nobody knew what he was doing or where he was.
We’re not exaggerating when we say that the iPhone changed the world. No one remembers the PDAs or Blackberries of yesteryear and that’s the iPhone’s fault. If you see a photo of them, they look like pots to us antediluvian, with incomprehensible keyboards and operating systems that relied too heavily on their desktop interfaces. All of that was destroyed when Steve Jobs scrolled through an iOS menu for the first time.
Applesfera was very young when the original iPhone was announced. The article we dedicated to him at the time reflected our astonishment and makes clear the time difference: what we highlighted were the possibilities of consulting complete web pages and emails and we already considered the interface of this “iPhone OS” historic. And that was just the beginning: The App Store was to come a year later and change everything again.
Fifteen years later, with linear improvements (the iPhone 15 is rumored to be following this trend), it seems that we’ve reached a “ceiling” of development across the device industry. smartphone. The future seems to come in other waysalthough it will be a long time before we know it well and everything is governed by increasingly strict regulations.
But today, January 9th, the iPhone deserves recognition. No matter how much time passes and no matter how many obstacles and setbacks it faces, this small, pocket-sized device has managed to change everything. Happy Anniversary, iPhone; And thanks to Apple for making it possible.
