Apple 1976


April 1, 1976: Apple is Founded

On this day in 1976, Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne founded Apple, a business dedicated to selling personal computers.The three founders worked in Jobs’ parents’ garage and developed their first product, Apple I. The following July, Apple introduced 200 personal computers to the market and sold them for $666.66. 

Throughout the years, Apple has gained its title as a global leader in the consumer electronics industry due to its iconic products such as the iPhone, iPod, iMac, and iPad. 

In 2011, the world had to say goodbye to Apple’s leading force – Steve Jobs. Take a moment to remember the life of Steve Jobs with PBS NewsHour’s special report
