An auction in the United States brought almost $35,000 (approximately Rs 28 lakh) for a brand-new, factory-sealed Apple iPhone from 2007.

At the Macworld conference in San Francisco on January 9, 2007, Apple CEO at the time Steve Jobs introduced the world to the iPhone, a touchscreen mobile phone that included an iPod, camera, and Web browsing capabilities, among other things.

The gadget had a web browser, visual voicemail, a 2-megapixel camera, and a touchscreen. The original 4GB iPhone sold for $499 with a two-year contract, whereas the 8GB iPhone sold for $599.

ZDNet reported that the original iPhone (8GB) with all accessories sold at auction for $35,414 recently. According to RR Auction, the iPhone packaging depicts a life-size version of the device with 12 icons displayed on the screen.

The auction, titled “Apple, Jobs, and Computer Hardware,” contained more than 70 lots and ended on August 18. The device was one of them.

An Apple-1 motherboard that Steve “Woz” Wozniak hand-soldered also fetched a high price at the auction, fetching $677,196.

The article also mentioned the $25,000 sale of a brand-new, never-opened Apple iPod (5GB) from the very first model. On September 7, Apple will reportedly release the iPhone 14 series, among other things.
