– The original iPhone had a 3.5-inch capacitive touch screen with a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels. The user interface was based on touch gestures, a novelty at the time.

– It had a physical home button on the front, volume buttons on the left side, a mute switch and a power button on the top right.

It ran iPhone OS 1.0, the precursor to what is now known as iOS. It included built-in applications such as Phone, Mail, Safari (web browser), and iPod (music player).

– It was equipped with a 2 megapixel rear camera without video recording capability.

– It had storage options of 4GB, 8GB and later, 16GB.

Despite some initial criticism about the lack of certain features (such as the absence of 3G and the ability to record video), the iPhone was acclaimed for its innovative design and ease of use. In its first weekend, Apple sold 270,000 units of the iPhone, and during the first year, more than 6 million units were sold.
