There are currently over one billion Apple products being used worldwide. Apple has been voted the world’s most valuable brand for the last four years running. It is the second-largest mobile phone manufacturer in the world, and its online platform the iTunes Store is the world’s largest music retailer.
Apple has its headquarters in California, USA, but has retail operations in 17 countries worldwide. The company currently employs over 115,000 full-time staff.
The Origins of Apple
In 1976, two college dropouts, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, founded Apple Computers Inc, with the aim of making small, user-friendly computers suitable for use in homes and offices. The resulting Apple I was designed by Wozniak and built by hand in Jobs’ garage. Early models were sold without casing or a monitor, connecting to a regular TV.
Around 200 units were produced; they’re now worth approximately US $900,000 each.
Sales of the prototype gave Jobs and Wozniak enough confidence to develop the Apple II, which launched in April 1977. It was the first computer to offer colour graphics, and it had 64K of memory. However, its retail price of $1,300 seemed excessive, even for businesses.

The fortunes of the Apple II were changed by the development of the world’s first business app. VisiCalc was a spreadsheet program designed on and for the Apple II by student Dan Bricklin in 1979. Apple credited the app with being the reason for 20% of the Apple II’s sales, which totalled almost six million over its 16-year production lifespan.
By 1980 Apple had a staff of designers, a production line and sales totalling $118 million. The company went public in December of that year at $22 per share, instantly creating more millionaires than any other company in history.
The Apple Macintosh was launched in 1984, and its advanced graphics capabilities made it a huge success in the burgeoning desktop publishing industry. However, PC firms were soon offering similar technology at lower prices. Apple suffered mixed fortunes throughout the 1990s due to the market domination of Microsoft.
Retail and the iPod
Apple’s fortunes rose again with the introduction of its now-iconic iPod digital music player in 2001, which sold over 100 million units within six years. Its success led to the creation of the iTunes Store in 2003, which quickly became one of the world’s largest music retailers. It now holds the top spot.
The iPhone and mobile devices
Since 2007, Apple’s emphasis has largely been on consumer electronics rather than computers. The iPhone was launched that year, causing Apple’s share price to jump to over $100, and leading to the development of the iPad tablet, which sold over half a million units in the first week of sales in 2010. The following year the company launched the iCloud online storage service.
Apple is now worth $233 billion. The company has recently announced its first scripted television production venture, a six-part series about music producer Dr Dre.
