The original iPhone and the iPhone 4 pages are my favourite. I think it may be due to the black background, but it makes the iPhones look pretty slick. Especially the page showing the iPhone 4.

It's lovely to see them all grouped together like that.

That's awesome! I love how bold the original ad was, it's nice. The progression to a more understated approach is cool too, though.

Yep, and than the more grey ones. Last place: all white.

Kinda funny that the '09 homepage chose the Compass.app as something to highlight.

Sweet thread, though. Fun to look at those images. Immediately makes me think of the EveryAppleAds YouTube channel.

Neat! It's kinda fun and nostalgic looking at the original iPhone marketing stuff.

It does make me think of one small issue about iOS that has been bothering me lately. Here we are, 5.5-6 years later, and some of those icons still look the exact same and are starting to look dated. I know, some have been updated and some still stand the test of time. It's a small issue, and I'm really nitpicking here, but it'd be nice to see some of those icons get a facelift...particularly the "Photos" app icon. I find it completely dated and hideous at this point. The Safari icon is pretty bland and ugly to look at as well. A lot of people are complaining about iOS starting to look/feel boring and "blah" and "same old same old"...maybe doing something small like refreshing/updating the icon set entirely would add a fresh little twist on the OS. Just a thought. And like I said, I'm really nitpicking here.

For those looking for other Apple homepages, the best place I've found is this guy who saves them on Flickr:

Check it out, Intel chips sure do suck, huh?

Q2 1998: profit of $55 million
Q2 2012: profit of $11 billion

Crazy.

Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

I wonder how much business Frank's Pizza got after the iPhone was introduced. I'm curious to know if there was a marked increase in sales or not.

Haha, nice thread. I have to say, my favourite home page was the iPhone 4 one.

Totally had a similar thought when I first opened this thread.

Also, having not searched around, does anyone know the significance of the original iPhone, iPhone 3G, and iPhone 3GS having the displayed time in ads as 9:42 AM and then the iPhone 4, 4S, and 5 showing 9:41 AM?
