On June 9, 2008, Apple announced its successor, the iPhone 3G. The original iPhone has not received software updates from Apple after iPhone OS (now iOS) 3.1.3.

Since June 11, 2013, the original iPhone has been considered “obsolete” in Apple retail stores, “vintage” by other service providers in the US, and “obsolete” in all other regions. Apple does not service vintage or obsolete products, and replacement parts for obsolete products are not available to service providers.

Release

The iPhone was released on June 29, 2007 in the United States where thousands of people were reported to have waited outside Apple and AT&T retail stores days before the device’s launch; with many stores reporting stock shortages within an hour. To avoid repeating the problems of the PlayStation 3 launch, which caused burglaries and even a shooting, off-duty police officers were hired to guard stores overnight.

It was later made available in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Portugal, the Republic of Ireland and Austria in November 2007.

Six out of ten Americans surveyed said they knew the iPhone was coming before its release.

Seventeen-year-old George Hotz sold the first unlocked iPhone in the United States for three locked iPhones and a Nissan 350Z.

Software

During release, the iPhone was marketed as running “OS X”. The name of the operating system was revealed as iPhone OS with the release of the iPhone SDK. The original iPhone supports three major versions: iPhone OS 1, 2, and 3.
