Description

NATIONAL BESTSELLER
"The One Device is a tour de force, with a fast-paced edge and heaps of analytical insight." -Ashlee Vance, New York Times bestselling author of Elon Musk

"A stunning book. You will never look at your iPhone the same way again." -Dan Lyons, New York Times bestselling author of Disrupted
The secret history of the invention that changed everything-and became the most profitable product in the world.
Odds are that as you read this, an iPhone is within reach. But before Steve Jobs introduced us to "the one device," as he called it, a cell phone was merely what you used to make calls on the go.
How did the iPhone transform our world and turn Apple into the most valuable company ever? Veteran technology journalist Brian Merchant reveals the inside story you won't hear from Cupertino-based on his exclusive interviews with the engineers, inventors, and developers who guided every stage of the iPhone's creation.
This deep dive takes you from inside One Infinite Loop to 19th century France to WWII America, from the driest place on earth to a Kenyan pit of toxic e-waste, and even deep inside Shenzhen's notorious "suicide factories." It's a firsthand look at how the cutting-edge tech that makes the world work-touch screens, motion trackers, and even AI-made their way into our pockets.
The One Device is a roadmap for design and engineering genius, an anthropology of the modern age, and an unprecedented view into one of the most secretive companies in history. This is the untold account, ten years in the making, of the device that changed everything.

Customer Reviews

Very Interesting

Sheds such an interesting light on the history and story of how the iPhone came to be. Can't wait for the full book to be released.

Fun read for people who love their iPhone

There are so many things about my iPhone I never thought about before reading this book. It sheds light on how the phone was conceived of inside Apple and it also shows the impact the device has had around the world. Pretty cool.

Interesting subject, great style

A real page turner, especially if you're into technical stuff. A fascinating glimpse into how the iPhone comprises innovation spanning many individuals and decades. In addition, the style of writing is excellent- engaging and dramatic. (I don't approve of the sailor-mouthed Silicon Valley crowd, but that's not the authour's fault.)

In a word, highly recommended.
