    It was very cool then but now I look around and see what ‘smart phones’ and ‘social media’ have done to western society and wonder how things’d turned out if this never happened

      ...but it's not the fault of the devices. It's more what a significant amount of people is interested in and using it for. I'm confident that these things will develop as time goes by, too.

      @A.T It's the ingenious iPhone that is enslaving people from living their lives? Wow, what power Steve Jobs had! That's what he intended all right. c'mon - people have always enslaved themselves. This technology has always been fascinating.

    • Moaath

      Then sell your phone

    • eric brown

      That’s right

    • A.T

      I just bought a pre-owned Walkman W800i. Nothing beats the classics. The Iphone today is now less of a phone and more of a device to enslave people to keep from living their lives. That was the intention when designing it. Now, don’t get me wrong - it has benefits. But mostly, it’s a liability, for many of us. Though, you might not realise it.

    "We have invented a new technology called multi-touch" they adopted the technology , but certainly didn't invent it

    • Matt

      @Tim Suetens he didn't say they invented the mouse.

    • A.T

      @Tim Suetens Yeah, I thought it sounded a little weird when he said that too...

    I've always hated Apple, and considering how little innovation they bring to their products today, still do, but I have to admit, the world would have been different have they not introduced so many great and absolutely game-changing technologies... Apple shaped the maket of the time, and they always tried to do something completely new, even if it was risky. Thank you Steve

    • A.T

      “Thank you” is taking it a bit too far. I agree that the Iphone has its benefits, but mostly it’s just a liability for me.

      @Jonathan Aguilera how does that have to do with "left wing". i personally dislike apple because of its capitalist exploitation and ridiculously overpriced products. i am what you would consider "left wing". but hold your sweet horses for a second. what does "left wing" have to do with anything? excuse me for assuming you are from the usa, but just a little reminder: you are gay. "left wing" is not the cause for everything bad. in fact its the usa. the capitalist gays. i would use the h word, but sadly youtube, a capitalist american piece of a joke, doesnt allow me to do that.

    Steve the loser was only after people's money and Apple today is stealing from their dumb followers ... Long live Microsoft and Google

    • A.T

      @chrnaf A major reason I despise Apple products is that they’re designed to break. Your battery’s dead? Well too bad. You’ll have to get a new phone. Android phones suck too, but at least you can switch out the batteries on most, if not all of them.

    • A.T

      You’re a fool if you prefer Microsoft and Google over Apple. The truth is all three of these brands are equally bad.

    • chrnaf

      They created the first smart phone that a 2 year old can use, and yet your grandmother can use, and everyone else between. Meanwhile, other operating systems were too busy spamming you with 7 layers of popups and a stylus that kept breaking or getting lost. It's sad that over a decade later, people like you are unable to appreciate how Apple restructured the market. When an android user has a problem with a smart phone, they have to ask: 1. Is the problem with the hardware of the phone, made by (Samsung etc. Company)? 2. Is it caused by the operating system made by Google? 3. Is it the app made by (insert random third party software company here)? Apple user has a problem: Contact Apple. Once stop shop to resolve anything. THAT is the business model that most Americans choose, THAT'S why most smart phones in America in 2021 are iPhones. If I wanted poorly made cheaper products, I'd settle for Android, as most of the world has to. If you have the money for the best, it's Apple.

    1:42 I love his facial expression right there he looks like he was thinking: I know what you're thinking of, I know you are just applauding because it's Apple and new - but you have no idea what innovation you're witnessing as the first ones in the world. it will blow your minds. and yo have no idea. I wonder if/how it didn't leak - such an innovation in technology must have been too exciting for the engineers and developers

    I was only 4 when Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone!😮 I miss Steve Jobs everyday and the world isn’t the same without him. But when Tim Cook sadly passes away, The whole world is going to drop as everyone is grieving him. It is like when Kobe bryant,Carl from Dhar Mann,Caleb Leblanc and of course Steve Jobs sadly passed away from pancreatic cancer.😢😭

    God I remember this moment so well. I got goosebumps when I realized along with the audience that it was all one device. And this video is so old I probably already put this exact same comment on here lmfao. But I really miss Steve's keynotes, he was one of a kind with them. The apple keynotes now are so full of cringe they are very painful to watch.

      Man I remember watching this live I bought the first iPhone and still have it to frame it one day in memory of Steve Jobs. I have been a Samsung owner since after the iPhone 5S and I'm glad I love Samsung but with that said Steve Jobs started Samsung innovation I know nobody wants to admit it but I believe if he didn't get the iPhone out Samsung wouldn't be where it is today!

    Without the iPhone we would have POS Samsung Galaxy phones...I dont think Steve would approved of this NEW THING with not allowing us to swap out the Battery now they just glue the back on so you are FORCED to buy a new phone.

      Galaxy is not a POS lol you are just some goofy fan boy

  • Nathan2055

    I still can’t get over the fact that they hadn’t even finished getting it to work by this point. Steve was covertly switching phones under his podium every time he showed off a new app because the OS (it wasn’t even called iOS yet) wasn’t stable enough to handle more than one app at a time. The engineers are backstage during all of this playing a game where you could start drinking if Steve managed to get through your part of the demo without anything crashing. Somehow, it actually went great without any problems during the presentation, they worked out the bugs before launch, and the rest is history.

    Watching this makes my heart race. Just the impact the iPhone brought to the world. Hardly anyone uses Blackberry's anymore in America, the leap of faith from the iPhone Steve is holding, and the uniqueness of the product when it came out. I watched news coverage of later iPhone Gens being revealed, and lines would form at stores. The payphone died indefinitely when this came out. I bet you don't have a home phone anymore, only mobile phones.

    I wonder what the exact tipping point was. Obviously high technology has not been good for the overall well being of humanity. People waste huge portions of their limited life staring at a screen or worrying about what so and so posted on the ‘gram. I’m old enough to remember life before cell phones and the internet. If you never knew that time and you think that things are better now….it’s unfortunate you never had that experience. The impact of high tech, internet and phones can never be truly quantified. Life was just better before. People actually lived it

    • ChrisTX

      Even thinking about this gives me a headache. Life without smartphones was slower but it must have been so much more relaxed. Just a slower pace of things which gives you more time to think, or rest, or just live life without giving a d*mn about 'social' media.

    Why is nobody still legitimately complaining that Apple is not including the wall charger with their devices. Since when in history has it been okay for a company to sell an expensive item and then turn around and gouge their customers for more money if you actually wanted to use that item?
