Yesterday was the 10th anniversary of the Apple iPhone's release, which is pretty crazy when you think about it, especially given the fact that the mobile devices have changed the way the world works and plays on a cell phone.

And while we all anticipate the upcoming iPhone 8 later this year—with many searching for juicy details about what it might look like and how it may work—a new video just hit the Internet that has people wondering what a first gen iPhone may have looked like.


According to the video which was posted by YouTube user Sonny Dickson, the prototype iPhone doesn't use the modern touch-driven interface IOS, but instead an on-screen click wheel, which occupied the bottom part of the screen—which is similar to how the first iPods looked (see below).

Dickson, the man who posted the video, is an apparent "Apple insider"—his website first started with the iPhone 4 leaks—so he has an idea of what he's talking about.

Steve Jobs may have tried to keep things under wraps for 10 years, but, with this video, the world now knows at least one of his secrets as to how the original iPhone may have operated.
