The unopened first generation original Apple iPhone's original box featured a life-size image of the phone showing a phone screen with twelve icons meaning it is a 2007 edition iPhone as the iTunes icon, the 13th icon, only appeared on screens later in 2007.

In Steve Job's keynote speech to launch the iPhone he said  "iPhone is a revolutionary and magical product that is literally five years ahead of any other mobile phone,"

Collectors clearly agreed with the iPhone easily surpassing its $15,000 estimate, selling for $35,414 including auction fees.

It's been a remarkable year for Steve Jobs and Apple memorabilia with Jobs' original Apple Computer A proto-type selling for $677,196, and a cheque signed by him selling for $55,000 against an estimate of $25,000.
