An interesting lot that will attract the attention of all fans of “apple” gadgets was auctioned in the USA. We are talking about the unpacked first-generation iPhone, which was released in 2007. Its starting cost is $50,000, according to Business Insider.

The gadget has a 2-megapixel camera and 8 GB of memory. Throughout all these years, it remained unpacked. According to its owner, American Karen Green, she kept the device wrapped “in felt pajamas”, due to the fact that it was incompatible with the mobile network.

Last fall, Americans learned that the 2007 iPhone went under the hammer for $39,339. This prompted her to go to auction house LCG Auctions with a proposal to put her old gadget up for auction.

The opening of the auction took place on February 2. It will last until February 19.

The first generation of the iPhone existed in two versions: with 4 GB of memory and with 8 GB. They cost $499 and $599, respectively.

Earlier, an auction was held by RR Auction at which a prototype Apple 1 computer, owned by Steve Jobs, went “under the hammer”. The computer was personally assembled by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
