On the surface, Jan. 9, 2017, might not seem like a particularly important date, but if you follow the story of Apple Inc. (AAPL), this day is huge.

It was exactly a decade ago on this day that Steve Jobs took the stage to unveil the very first iPhone. We may take it for granted now, but this little device propelled Apple stock to lofty heights and earned investors untold billions of dollars.

Apple put out a press release marking the iPhone’s 10th anniversary, noting Steve Jobs introduction of the new device as “a widescreen iPod with touch controls, a revolutionary mobile phone and a breakthrough internet communications device.”
