That first year 1.4 million iPhones were sold, since then they have sold over 421 million iPhones. The device has caused legendary lines outside of apple stores all over the world. In November 2007 Time magazine named the tiny device the invention of the year. Each new phone launch from competitors is not held up against this device as the gold standard in high-tech smart phones.
