But before we dive into this story, let’s take a look at the history of Apple and the iPhone…

It’s hard to imagine that the iPhone you have now came from an idea for two men in a garage in Los Altos…

Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak.

There the heart and soul of Apple Computer Inc. grew.

Jobs and Wozniak both had a vision of making computers small enough that they could be kept in people’s homes and workplaces.

In simple terms, they wanted the device to be easy to use.

Jobs and Wozniak began building the first Apple product, which was called the Apple I.

Apple didn’t come with a screen…

It was made of wood and only had a keyboard.

Jobs and Wozniak did a much better job with the Apple II, which forever revolutionized the computing industry.

They introduced color graphics, boosting sales from $7.8 million in 1978 to $117 million in 1980.

Due to diminishing interest in the daily operation of Apple computers, Wozniak left in 1983.

After Wozniak decided to leave Apple, Jobs appointed John Sculley to be the company’s president.

It was not a smart move by Jobs, as it backfired on him after several arguments with Scully.

Jobs then left the private company he created in 1985.

He went to do new things.

He founded his own company known as next one, He went on to found Pixar, which was a huge hit in the 1990s with the release of Toy Story.

But that doesn’t mean Apple was falling apart because Jobs left.

Apple was doing very well in terms of sales during the 1980s and 1990s.

However, these plans were all jobs before he left the company.

In 1985, Scully rejected a major plea from Bill Gates to license the program.

Remember that Apple and Microsoft were the contenders.

The decision to reject the appeal would later come down to Sculley’s bite because Microsoft, whose Windows operating system features a graphical interface similar to Apple’s, became its strongest competitor in the late 1980s and throughout the 1990s.

Over the years, Apple has been slowly dying, with sales dropping.

Around 1996, the company reached its peak, and people thought Apple was doomed.

Apple was in desperate need of an operating system until 1997.

Scully may have been banging his head against a wall after he turned down Gates’ appeal.

So, how did they solve the situation?

Across Getty Images

Apple decided to seek help from an old friend.

Apple bought next one software.

Then Jobs returned to Apple as interim CEO. He wasn’t officially CEO until 2000.

Returning to the company he once created, Jobs decided to make a small change to the company.

Across Getty Images

He allied with Microsoft, creating the Mac version of its popular software.

It wasn’t long after the decision that the company began to see a massive rise in sales.

Jobs revamped computers and introduced the iBook (personal laptop computer), followed by the iPod, the mp3 player, which became the market leader.

In 2007 the world’s first iPhone was introduced.
