How the first iPhone user interface was designed


This week marks 10 years since the official launch of the first iPhone . A decade of evolving and offering new benefits to users. On the occasion of the anniversary celebration, three executives working for Apple at that time have come together to talk about their creation.
Scott Forstall, Tony Fadell and Greg Christie sat down to chat with The Wall Street Journal to tell the story about the UI design of the first iPhone.
If you want to know how it was created, what ideas were shuffled and what was the reaction of Steve Jobs to the first prototypes of iPhone, read on.

How the first iPhone user interface was created

One of the factors that most influenced the creation of the iPhone and its user interface was precisely the idea of ​​the iPod.
"THE IPOD WAS GETTING BETTER AND BETTER. IT GENERATED 50% OF OUR SALES. SO WE WONDERED: WHAT CONCERNS DO WE HAVE ABOUT THE IPOD'S LONG-TERM SUCCESS? "
This is how, at first, the idea of ​​creating a hybrid between an iPod and a mobile phone came up:
"WE WERE TRYING 30 OR 40 DIFFERENT WAYS TO MAKE THE IPOD WHEEL LOOK LIKE AN OLD DIAL AND NOTHING SEEMED LOGICAL OR INTUITIVE."
In the video interview the three ex-directors of Apple talk about how Steve Jobs was very demanding before all proposals. He even went so far as to say that he would delegate the project to another team if they did not live up to expectations .

Then came the idea of ​​the first original iPhone user interface, and this is how Steve Jobs reacted:
"THE FIRST TIME HE SAW HIM, HE WAS TOTALLY SILENT. HE DID NOT SAY A WORD OR MAKE A GESTURE. HE DID NOT ASK ANY QUESTIONS. HE SAT DOWN AGAIN AND SAID, 'SHOW ME AGAIN'. THEN STEVE WAS STUNNED BY THE DEMONSTRATION.
