iPhone’s Tenth Anniversary

In New York City, eager consumers stood in the rain or sat under umbrellas, waiting in lines that continued for blocks.

But did you know that by the next year, the YouVersion Bible app was developed and launched for the new Apple store? It was downloaded and installed 80,000 times in the first three days!

Engage with the Bible—with the now millions of people around the globe installing the Bible app every month!
