TIME’s “50 Most Influential Gadgets of All Time” ranks Apple’s iPhone No. 1.
TIME’s write-up goes like this:
The tech that forever changed the way we live, work, and play
Think of the gear you can’t live without: The smartphone you constantly check. The camera that goes with you on every vacation. The TV that serves as a portal to binge-watching and -gaming. Each owes its influence to one model that changed the course of technology for good.
It’s those devices we’re recognizing in this list of the 50 most influential gadgets of all time.
Rather than rank technologies—writing, electricity, and so on—we chose to rank gadgets, the devices by with consumers let the future creep into their present. The list—which is ordered by influence—was assembled and deliberated on at (extreme) length by TIME’s technology and business editors, writers and reporters.
Apple products on the list include:
1. Apple iPhone
3. Apple Macintosh
9. Apple iPod
25. Apple iPad
38. Apple iBook
