Although Apple’s history dates back more than 34 years, the truth is that most of the company’s successes are concentrated in a few years of that long journey. We could emphasize the first stage because of its importance, but if we had to highlight a period of time in the future, it would be the one lived in the last ten years.
The company has managed to reap a cumulative success that few companies or almost none are able to match . At a firm but definite pace, Apple has managed to bring out products that have been, to a lesser or greater extent, a sales success.
In 2001 the company introduces the first iPod, Mac OS X, and opens the company’s first stores, at that time its stock market value was $7.44 per share. Almost 10 years later the iPod is one of the few products that has sold more than 100 million units, Mac OS X has 7 versions, is the example to follow for the rest and the company has a stock market value of approximately $250.
All this comes from a fantastic graphic created by the guys at AppStorm that summarizes the most important events of these almost 10 years, 10 years that have marked history.
