iPhone 15 launch: A look at the big iPhone launches of the past

Apple is ready to unveil its highly anticipated new iPhone 15 series at its “Wonderlust” event on Tuesday, September 12th. In addition to the iPhone 15 series, the event will also see some major other product launches, including the latest version of the Apple Watch. Interestingly, the company is expected to bring a number of updates and features with the iPhone 15 series, which will include the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.

The Wonderlust event, which takes place once a year, is typically known for some big hardware launches and has resulted in a number of new product releases from the company in recent years.

Apple has come a long way since launching the first iPhone in January 2007. It’s clearly been more than a decade and the evolution of iPhones over the years is worth remembering.

Before today’s launch of the iPhone 15 series, let’s take a look at the iPhone history.
