An Animated History of the iPhone

by Joey deVilla on October 18, 2011

Here’s a clever, just-under-four-minutes animated history of all the things leading up to the iPhone created by CNET UK. It includes:

  • Steve Jobs
  • The Motorola Dynatac, and later the ROKR
  • Sony portable tape players (which would lead to the Walkman)
  • ARPANET
  • Tim Berners-Lee and his NeXT cube
  • Apple’s Jony Ive and his spiritual predecessor, Braun’s Dieter Rams
  • NeXTSTEP
