Sales of the Apple iPhone have transformed the business over the past decade
Steve founded Apple on the belief that the power of human creativity can solve even the biggest challenges - and that the people who are insane enough to think that they can change the world are the ones who do. Along the way, it has changed how consumers connect with one another and how businesses conduct daily commerce. And that the first biggest players in this market-Amazon, Microsoft, Alibaba, and Google-accounted for about 73 percent of it collectively.
Apple's share price has risen 22 per cent in 2018, eclipsing the US$200 mark earlier this year and valuing the company at more than $US1 trillion. That put Apple on a path to overtake Exxon Mobil in 2011 as the largest USA company by market value.

The value of the company's stock has reached an all time new high of $208.38. It's now the hub for a growing services business that the company hopes will pull in $50 billion in revenue a year by 2021.
Apple was founded in the late 1970s by Steve Jobs and went public in 1980 after helping usher in the era of the personal computer. Although it isn't considered a Fang company, Microsoft is also valued at $827 billion.
