It's hard to believe that 10 years have passed since the first iPhone was released.

Today, the Apple smartphone is ubiquitous. Anywhere you go, you're likely to hear its signature ringtone. In fact, as of March, more than 700 million iPhones were in use worldwide, according to Fortune.

While the novelty of these brilliant devices has surely worn off, that hasn't stopped droves of techies from lining up at stores whenever a new generation becomes available.

That of course was the case on June 29, 2007, when the iPhone first hit the shelves. To commemorate the 10-year anniversary of the popular smartphone that has since become a global staple, here's a look at how The Jersey Journal covered the much-anticipated release:

Scores of technophiles thronged to the AT&T store on Washington Street yesterday for the much-hyped “world premier” of the Apple iPhone – the combination cellphone, iPod and high-speed Internet device expected to do just about everything for its u..

Forget the Galaxy S8, the OnePlus 5, and any other top Android handsets that features the exact same specs. The iPhone 8 will be the most powerful smartphone on the market when it launches later this year. In fact, the iPhone 7s may deliver the same tremendous performance too. And we already have evidence to prove it.

Don't Miss: Google Play is hosting a huge sale on must-have Android apps and movies

The guys over at Tech Insights analyzed the A10X chip found in the brand new 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros and discovered that it’s unlike the A10 Fusion chip in one major way.

The A10X is Apple’s first 10nm chip, which is a surprise, considering that Apple introduces new chip technology alongside a new iPhone. We would have expected the A10X CPU to be built on the same 16nm tech as the A10 Fusion that powers the iPhone 7 series.

As soon as the new iPad Pros were launched a few weeks ago, we learned they are capable of delivering monster performance both when it comes to singl..

Did you know it was the iPhone's 10th anniversary on Thursday? The Vergecast knows. Nilay, Dieter, and Paul talk about what the iPhone means to them, to the industry, and to the entire universe. With just a slight tangent to talk about Orbs for Kings.

Better yet, Nilay interviewed Verge reporter Russell Brandom about the Petya ransomware. It's a segment Russell calls “CyberTalk,” but Nilay wants to call it “Brandom Security with Russell Brandom.” Please vote in the comments.

1:00 – The iPhone turns 10

21:56 – iPhone or smartphones: which had the bigger impact?

31:50 – Petya ransomware in “Brandom Security with Russell Brandom” / “CyberTalk”

Apple’s Jet Black iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are without question the most stunningly beautiful iPhones Apple has ever created… for about the first 10 seconds after you take them out of the box. After that, the fragile Jet Black finish begins to scratch. Then it scratches some more. And more. Then it begins to fade. Then it begins to complete rub off in the spots that hit your pants the most as you slide it in and out of your pocket each day. Eventually, you’re left with the chewed up remains of a once-beautiful finish.

The Jet Black iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were almost impossible to find when they were first released, and plenty of people opted for a different color instead of waiting. If you were one of those people and you still feel a little buyer’s remorse to this day because you don’t have a Jet Black iPhone in your pocket, we’re about to change your mind.

Don't Miss: Sorry, but Apple probably won’t release an iPhone 8, 7s, or 7s Plus this year

Every so often, someone p..

SugruUsually, when something goes wrong with your iPhone or Mac, the first move is to an Apple Store to get it looked at by a professional.

But the Apple store can be expensive for repairs, and minor problems can often be solved at home with stuff you already have lying around.

Over the past eight years, Apple users have found all sorts of clever hacks to fix your iPhone without going out and buying pricey parts or accessories.

Some hacks can even make your iPhone better than it was out of the box.

So the next time you're having iPhone issues, try a DIY solution first. Not only will it save you a trip, but it could also save you some cash.

The iPhone really did change everything.
Sure, there were smartphones before Apple's came along in 2007, but BlackBerry and Windows Mobile devices were largely the tools of white-collar workers and productivity beasts who needed to have e-mail all the time. The iPhone was the first smartphone that anyone could easily use — even if the original was expensive and surprisingly slow.
With Thursday being the 10th anniversary of the launch of the original iPhone, we of course chose our Thursday show for this week's extended edition. Watch special guests Scott Stein and Sharon Profis share their thoughts, which quickly go from dark to quirky and back again.
As a treat over this long weekend, here's our full, extended YouTube show, complete with extra-long pre- and post-taping segments.
The 3:59 gives you bite-size news and analysis about the top stories of the day, brought to you by the CNET News team in New York and producer Bryan VanGelder.

Ten years ago, we wrote about a new high-tech device that transfixed us even before it reached the market: the iPhone.
Skeptics in our ranks predicted that the iPhone would flop because it wasn’t really necessary. They already had flip cellphones for calls, BlackBerrys for emails, digital or film cameras for snapping photos, Garmins or MapQuest printouts for street navigation, and iPods for music. Why, they reasoned smugly, did they need an iPhone?
A billion phones and all those selfies and texts and adorable guinea pig videos later, we all know why.

No one then could fathom or predict how profoundly the iPhone and its competitors would shape everyday life — and demolish industries.
What’s even more fascinating than celebrating the 10th anniversary of the iPhone’s release on June 29, 2007? Anticipating its eventual demise and the tech marvels that will take its place.
Wall Street Journal writer Christopher Mims predicts that by the iPhone’s 20th anniversary, the phone will have morph..
