Apple Engineer Reveals How Original iPhone Was Created

As you know, Apple’s first-gen iPhone was released in 2007. The development of the device, however, began much earlier - in 2004. This is what Greg Christie, Apple senior software engineer, revealed in an interview to The Wall Street Journal a couple of days ago.

Take a look at the short extract from this interview (via iClarified):

In late 2004, Mr. Christie was working on software for Apple's Macintosh computers when Scott Forstall, a senior member of the company's software team, walked into his office, closed the door and asked if he wanted to work on a secret project, codenamed "purple." The team would develop a phone with an integrated music player, operated by a touch screen.

Apple made the information about the early development of iPhone available for public in order to show how innovative was this device and to prove that the company didn’t infringe on any of the Samsung’s patents.
