The first iPhone went on sale to the public on June 29, 2007. It seems like it’s been with us forever, but the handset that changed the entire smartphone space is only just five years old today.Its keyboard-touting competitors at the time, HP and RIM, are now dead or dying, while the upstart Android OS now duels Apple’s iOS for market dominance, and late entrant Windows Phone vies for market credibility. But although the smartphone spaced has changed incredibly over these past five years, the iPhone continues to be a leader in terms of design and innovation, as well a top seller.

In all, it’s generated more than $150 billion in revenue for Apple.
