I think he was being facetious about the iPhone. He was trying to make the point that the media is rewriting history. Yes, he has a point that there was an anti-vaccine movement blaming autism on trace amounts of mercury in vaccines *before* Wakefield's "study." That doesn't mean that Wakefield didn't contribute to the anti-vaccine hysteria, especially with regards to the MMR vaccine in particular.
