History of GUI

The GUI didn't change from development to the first iPhone.

GUI is a design designed for intuitive operation, as described in the "What is UI?” page, it is a design that is designed to be operated intuitively.

It is not an exaggeration to say that the history of GUI is the history of attempts to allow users to select the images displayed on the screen.

Throughout the 1960s, the mouse, an input device, was developed by Douglas Engelbart's team at Stanford Research Institute.

GUIs have a long history, and were first used in the U.S. Air Force's SAGE system in 1963.

It was first used in the U.S. Air Force's "SAGE" system in 1963, and in the Macintosh (a.k.a. Mac) released by Apple Inc. in 1984.

"Windows 1.0" released in 1985 began to incorporate GUI.

The first iPhone used the world's best input device, the finger, as an input device, moving from physical sensation based on the mouse to input based on reality with the finger, and it brought a new style to GUI.
