Original, unopened iPhone 1 from 2007 could fetch $50,000 at auction

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 (opens in new tab) (via AppleInsider (opens in new tab)), and is expected to fetch as much as $50,000 (that’s about £41,480 / AU$72,235 at today’s exchange rate). That’s not a bad return on an investment after 16 years.
