At the auction, an original, unopened iPhone 1 from 2007 could fetch $50,000

A sealed, original iPhone


The most recent iPhone is the iPhone 14, launched last September, but it all started way back in 2007, and the very first Apple-made smartphones that were launched in that year are now worth rather more than their initial $499 asking price.

An original, unopened iPhone 1 is now up for auction (via AppleInsider). and is expected to fetch as much as $50,000 (that’s about £41,480 or AU$72,235 at today’s exchange rate). That’s not a bad return on an investment after 16 years.
