The Apple Archive is a massive trove of Apple-related nostalgia

Want to revisit the original iPhone launch? Or every iPhone launch, for that matter? I know just the place. 

The Apple Archive (via 9to5Mac) is a very, very meticulous collection of Apple-related videos and images, including press photos, event videos, ads and various promotional materials. 

It’s all totally unofficial, but still very thorough. The first thing I searched for – a video of the first iPhone launch – was there alright (the page has a site-wide search, but you can also search within a particular year). Then I tried something a bit harder – press photos of the long-discontinued AirPort Express – and sure enough they were there too. You’ll also find cool oldies such as Steve Jobs interviews, as well as certain rarities, like these unreleased ads for various products. 

You could probably find most of this stuff on Apple’s website and YouTube, but having it all in one place is very convenient. 

9to5Mac says the collection, created by enthusiast Sam Henri Gold, took years to put together, and in some cases finding the content took quite a bit of digging. There’s 15,000 files in there, totaling a little under 1TB. And whenever something new is added to the collection, it will be advertised on Twitter
