Steve Jobs Introducing The iPhone At MacWorld 2007
The Epic Launch 👇🏻 clearly states how a narrower product scope and focus may make a world of difference.
On January 9, 2007, Steve Jobs unveiled the first iPhone. According to all accounts, it had been a long and winding road; some of the engineers who had worked on it were reportedly pounding Scotch in the Moscone Center crowd, fearful that something would go wrong.
The unveiling went off without a hitch.
It didn't matter that the first iPhone didn't have multitasking; consumers still purchased it. But did you notice what Apple did? A multi-touch interface that astounded everyone. That was the "focus item" on which Apple engineers concentrated their efforts.
Do you know why?
Because it caused people's mouths to expand wide. No one cared about connection or battery life after seeing that, at least not for the time being. They were interested in the ability of a single gadget to integrate the functions of an iPod, a mobile phone, and the internet.
Hats Off, Jobs!🕺
