Apple was launched in 1976 by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, and has become one of the most recognized technology brands on the planet thanks to its design-centric approach to hardware and software.

Its Mac line of laptop and desktop computers is hugely popular, and its mobile products – with iPod, iPhone and iPad – have all been established as market leaders in their respective fields. Apple’s iTunes store is the world’s largest music retailer and also hosts a wide variety of videos and apps, while its iLife and iWork suite of applications provide powerful tools for users of the Mac OS X operating system.
