The iPhone has come a long way since Apple, with Steve Jobs at the helm, launched the device in June 2007.

While the 1st generation featured a 3.5-inch display, consumers now can purchase the smartphone that revolutionized the industry with a display as large as 5.5 inches.

Today, it’s expected that Apple, under CEO Tim Cook, will debut the next in the product line – the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Apple may be getting rid of the headphone jack. But the new iPhone could include an improved camera, higher storage capacities and a faster processor.

The big announcement is scheduled for 1 p.m. EST at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.

Apple is expected to keep prices in check, which means iPhone adopters will continue to get more for their money over time.
