Steve Jobs unveiled the iPhone 10 years ago, revolutionizing our world.

The device has continually changed from one model to another; it can be hard to keep track. So here's a recap of how we got from the original iPhone to 2017's newest iPhone X.

Apple announced the iPhone in 2007, marketing it at $587.04 in today's money.

2008 brought the iPhone 3G at a fraction of the price: $224.6 in today's money.

The iPhone 3GS gave users an even faster experience while keeping to a lower price point.

Next came the iPhone 4 in 2010, again making huge leaps with the introduction of FaceTime video calling.

2011: iPhone 4S comes along.

Then 2012's iPhone 5 stretched the device, getting thinner too.

Multiple color options have come to market along the way, including bright choices with the iPhone 5C. This 2013 model was meant to provide a cheaper iPhone option, coming in at $103.50 of today's money in comparison to the $208.04 an iPhone 5S would have cost.

2014 brought the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, a dual announcement replicated in 2016 with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus (the iPhone 6S came in 2015, with prices spiking up to a minimum $668.69 in today's terms). 2016 also gave birth to a newer small-scale iPhone: the iPhone SE.

Then this Tuesday, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced the latest iterations of this ubiquitous device: the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X.

All three feature wireless charging. The iPhone X boasts a bigger screen with no home button and now uses "Face ID" to unlock the phone and perform authentication functions. This latest Apple product will cost you at least $999.
