How Apple Got Where It Is Today


On April 1, 1976, Apple was founded by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne. In July of 1976 the Apple I was released, the cost for it was $666.66 and they sold about 175 of them in around 10 months. They got the money to make this computer by selling Steve Wozniack’s  HP-65 and Steve Jobs’ VW van. For more than three decades Apple was mainly just selling desktop computers. Until about 1998 when they released the original iMac, and the successful iPod music player and 2001 and also the iTunes music store in 2003. That’s when they started establishing themselves as one of the leading technology sellers in the world. Apple is worth roughly $1 trillion dollars as of August 2, 2018, and is still growing and evolving every year and can be worth even more than that now.
