A side by side comparison of the original iPhone camera vs the camera of the iPhone 7 Plus.

This week marks the milestone 10th anniversary for Apple’s iPhone. Launched at the start of 2007, the original iPhone was hailed as a revolutionary step forward for smartphones. Even so, the first iPhone looks positively primitive compared to the latest iPhone, and CNET has published a side-by-side comparison showing just how far the iPhone has come in the past 10 years.

The most striking difference between the iPhone then and now is size. While the iPhone 7 Plus has a 5.5” full HD screen, the original iPhone’s screen was just 3.5” and had a paltry 320×480 resolution. The iPhone camera has also come a long, long way. In sharp contrast to the iPhone 7 Plus’ 12 MP dual rear cameras, the original iPhone maxed out at 2 MP, didn’t have a front-facing lens, and couldn’t even shoot video.
