Apple Inc is one of the world’s favorite tech brands, the best-known tech companies of all time, one of the Big Five of tech, and for good reason. From the latest iPhone to the original Apple computer, the company has been an ingenious innovator of consumer technologies since its first days out of a home garage. Founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak met through a mutual friend. It turned out to be a fated meeting that would change the path of modern technology forever. Steve Wozniak created the original prototype for the Apple I computer—the first computer to resemble the computer we know today—a model with a large monitor and a keyboard. Jobs saw the prototype and quickly realized its potential. Together, the two founded Apple Computers Inc. on April 1, 1976.

FOUNDER OF APPLE COMPANY

Apple Computer, Inc. was founded on April 1, 1976, by college dropouts Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, who brought to the new company a vision of changing the way people viewed computers. Jobs and Wozniak wanted to make computers small enough for people to have them in their homes or offices. Simply put, they wanted a computer that was user-friendly.

Wozniak left Apple in 1983 due to a diminishing interest in the day-to-day running of Apple Computer.  Jobs then hired PepsiCo’s John Sculley to be president. However, this move backfired and after much controversy with Sculley, Jobs left in 1985 and went on to new and bigger things. He founded his own company NeXT Software and he also bought Pixar from George Lucas, which would later become a huge success in computer animation of such movies as Toy Story, A Bug’s Life, Monsters, Inc., and Finding Nemo.

Over the course of a few years, Apple’s market share suffered slowly after its peak in 1990 and by 1996, experts believed the company to be doomed. It was not until 1997, when Apple was desperately in need of an operating system, that it bought out NeXT Software (Jobs’ company) and the board of directors decided to ask for some help from an old friend: Steve Jobs. Jobs became an interim CEO, or iCEO as he called himself (Jobs was not officially the CEO until 2000). Jobs decided to make some changes around Apple. He forged an alliance with Microsoft to create a Mac version of its popular office software. Not long after this decision was the turning point for the company. Jobs revamped the computers and introduced the iBook (a personal laptop) followed by iPod, an mp3 player, which became market leader.

The iPhone, a touch screen cellular phone, introduced in 2007 was one of the world’ most successful products and the company has released several new versions since. Not long after the announcement of iPhone and Apple TV, the company dropped “Computer” from its name to become “Apple Inc.,” indicating that it is about more than just computers. Other popular products include iPad tablet and Apple Watch. Most recently Apple has expanded its services segments with its credit card (Apple Card), Apple News for news, Apple Arcade for games and the Apple TV+ for streaming original content produced by Apple. Steve Jobs died October 5, 2011, but Apple continues on with his legacy with Tim Cook at the helm as the CEO. The popularity of iPhones made Apple the first company valued at one trillion dollars in 2018 and two years later it doubled that figure.

CURRENT CEO OF APPLE COMPANY

The current CEO of Apple Inc is Tim Cook. Timothy Donald Cook (born November 1, 1960)is an American business executive who has been the chief executive officer of Apple Inc. since 2011. Cook previously served as the company’s chief operating officer under its co-founder Steve Jobs.

Cook joined Apple in March 1998 as a senior vice president for worldwide operations, and then served as the executive vice president for worldwide sales and operations. He was made the chief executive on August 24, 2011, prior to Jobs’ death in October of that year. During his tenure as the chief executive, he has advocated for the political reformation of international and domestic surveillance, cyber security, American manufacturing, and environmental preservation. Since 2011 when he took over Apple, to 2020, Cook doubled the company’s revenue and profit, and the company’s market value increased from $348 billion to $1.9 trillion.

Cook also serves on the boards of directors of Nike, Inc. and the National Football Foundation; he is a trustee of Duke University, his alma mater. Outside of Apple, Cook engages in philanthropy, and in March 2015, he said he planned to donate his fortune to charity. In 2014, Cook became the first chief executive of a Fortune 500 company to publicly come out as gay. He is openly gay,  but he has never married and has a tendency to throw himself into his work rather than romantic relationships.

EVOLUTION OF iPHONE

After months of rumors and speculation, Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveiled the first iPhone on Jan. 9, 2007. The device, which didn’t actually go on sale until June, started at $499 for a 4GB model, $599 for the 8GB version (with a two-year contract). It offered a 3.5-in. screen, a 2-megapixel camera and won plaudits for the then-new multitouch features. Critics, however, said the phone was too expensive to do well in the market.
