It started in 1976 as a three-man team consisting of Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne, which worked primarily out of a Los Altos, California garage. And in just 40 years, it has grown into one of the world’s most valuable companies.
Today, Apple is celebrating its 40th birthday. And in those 40 years, the company has brought us some of the most influential and ubiquitous hardware and software ever with an incredible 1 billion active Apple devices now in use around the world.
To celebrate its birthday, Apple has put together a simple, upbeat ad featuring a running list of some of those hardware and software hits from the past 40 years and a few misses (sorry, Newton).
The video serves as a fun timeline for those who have been with Apple from the beginning. Check it out below and feel free to share your favorite memories and products from Apple from the past 40 years in the comments section.
Apple’s 40th birthday coincides with its recent iPhone SE and iPad Pro releases, and we expect much more from the company in the years to come.
Happy birthday, Apple. Here’s to another 40 years!
