So, we have already gone through our fair share of iPhones in the past, having reached an apex with the iPhone 5s last year (with an upcoming iPhone 6 to arrive soon, as many will take note of), but surely everyone can still remember what kind of furore that the original 2007 iPhone raised when it was first released? That particular model more or less changed the way that we looked at smartphones, where a full touchscreen interface idea eventually sent the whole keyboard-plus-screen design packing. Well, obviously risks needed to be taken with the original iPhone’s design as it proved to be unchartered territory somewhat, where it seems that it carried the codename ‘Purple’.
During those days, Apple made use of colors to give its products codenames, and ex-software head Scott Forstall did reveal that the original iPhone which rolled out in 2007 was called ‘Purple’, with the building where it was built and developed from ground up being known as the ‘Purple Dorm’ among those involved. Needless to say, there was one major rule about this particular project – no one was allowed to talk about it outside of the four walls of the ‘Purple Dorm’, and it also proved to be aptly named since Apple employees who worked on ‘Purple’ also spent many nights there.
