Here's how we think they should celebrate.

After just shy of ten years in our lives, the iPhone has reached an important milestone. At a meeting on July 27th, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced that the company had just sold its billionth iPhone. Whether you’re an Apple fan or not, there’s no arguing that this is a momentous occasion and deserves to be celebrated. So what is an appropriate celebration? We have some ideas.

1 – Build a giant house of cards out of iPhones. The more intricate the better – with whole rooms devoted to each different model. The structure will stay up for one week, until one careless Apple Employee will ever-so-slightly dislodge a load bearing phone.

2 – City wide iPhone dominoes in major centres around the world. Free to participate – all cracks to be worn as badges of honour. Which city will manage to make the longest train? Whose will be the most intricate? It’s the celebration that keeps on giving.


3 – Confetti. It seems simple, yes, but it doesn’t have to be. Think of all the things confetti can be made from – the chips of every damaged phone case, screen protectors that have lost their stick, those stickers of the Apple logo we’ve been collecting all this time, every iPhone that’s ever been dropped in a toilet.


4 – A massive treasure hunt. iPhones with clues are planted all over the world. The hunt starts with Find My iPhone and ends in with triumph. At the end, Apple asks for the iPhones used in the hunt to be returned. This does not go well.

5 – A party where the only communication allowed is via FaceTime. It’s fun for at least the first 30 minutes, and then again two hours later when the bar stock is running low.


Whatever they choose to do, we’re sure Tim Cook and his team will celebrate well.
