The latest infographic below, from digital publishing start-up Uberflip, comes on the heels of Apple’s iPhone 5 announcement yesterday. It takes a look at how the iPhone has grown exponentially in many ways since its inception just five years ago in 2007.

Some interesting facts:

  • It was in January 2002 when Steve Jobs brainstormed a device to combine an MP3 player and a BlackBerry.
  • The iPhone 5 will be the first generation that has an increase in screen size.
  • The new iPhone is projected to sell 10 million units in just a few weeks.
  • Revenue from the iPhone alone is more than what established companies like Microsoft and Disney generate.
