    Usually Apple always puts milestones on their page, this is a huge one to say the least and no mention, why do you think?

    Probably because it's an artificial milestone rather than an accomplishment.

    I agree, especially the fact that iphones are like 70% of their total sales, and it doesnt hurt anyone to make a special mention and at the same time for steve jobs

    It would have been nice but Apple doesn’t normally celebrate these things. Positive note is that about every other website is celebrating :)

    I think the only time they'll really give it a mention is when the iPhone "8" is released

    But if someone unrelated to apple passes, they get their own page .. ppl die everyday, so it's not too far fetched they feel that the apple community is looking forward to the ten year date .. I can imagine it feels weird ignoring it.

    Because they are saving it for the new iPhone announcement?
    I mean why making it a huge deal now, taking a lot of the buzz away when they announce the new iPhone.

    I'm sure the mention is being saved for the iPhone 8 launch. Apple enjoys showing how far things have come (for example, comparing the 2016 MacBook Pro to the original 1990 PowerBook last year), and it's a good marketing strategy I think.

    If you look back and to the best of my knowledge, Apple has not celebrated or acknowledged other anniversary products either on their website, especially one's like the iMac/Apple I or Apple II, which defined this Company making computers. The iPhone likely falls in this situation, but likely will have a special presentation during the Fall Keynote.

    Fair enough, and while I agree .. they've made a few statements in the past and they're quite proud of the product that honestly saved the company and was a (and i quote them on it) revolution.

    I think it's not unreasonable to think 'ten year anniversary iphone release' vs 'exactly on this date'. But yeah, I was kind of expecting some tweet or something. I even expected samsung to try and release the note 7 again just today

    Tim Cook has Tweeted before in the past, but I believe for an iPhone launch or Apple Watch launch.

    I seemed to recall this nifty iMac timeline. Sure enough, it was there.

    Edit: This actually proves the point that Apple waits until major new product launches so that an old vs new comparison can be made. In this case it was the 2012 thin iMacs.

    Which is why indicated they likely will make some presentation in the new facility about the iPhone 8 and it's upbringing. That said, it makes sense if they were to demo some form of Generation of the iPhone history.

    I beginning to think there will not be an iPhone 8. I read a post today which I'm more incline to believe that the anniversary iPhone will be an iPhone 7(?) with a 6.6 screen, followed by two screen sizes the iPhone 7S Plus and iPhone 7S.

    I'm not sure what you read. But I highly doubt there will be a 6.6 inch iPhone display. I do agree there could be an iPhone 7s with the following variants of 4.7/5.5 LED and then the 5.8 OLED model. A 6.6 inch display seems highly unlikely and I have not read many reports other than the 5.8 rumor.

    Completely agree.

    This single event lead my career path from Windows based ( java ) development to Mac and iOS. I walked into the Apple store 29 Jun 2017 and picked up the first Apple product I have ever owned. Now, ten years later I have been through one Apple Watch, one MacAir, two iMacs, two Mac Minis, two Airport Extremes, three MacBook Pros and almost every iteration of the iPhone.

    Thank you iPhone for enticing me just enough to learn the Mac is actually based off of UNIX ( which I have always liked ) and then falling in love with the Mac operating system and development environment.

    Apple claims all the speculation about the new phones hurts them because it detracts buyers from the current models.

    Holding to that stance...it then becomes contrary to promote discussion by even mentioning any looming milestone.

    I guess what I'm predicting based on threads here at MacRumors is that there will be no iPhone 8. Instead, there will me 3 iPhones - an iPhone 7S Mega - a larger screen size that's bezel free, followed by the obvious, 7S Plus and 7S.

    It was the iPod that pretty much saved Apple, not the iPhone,

    Yeah, you're right. It's what got things started I guess.
