It offers multi-touch interaction with multimedia formats including newspapers, magazines, ebooks, textbooks, photos, movies, TV shows videos, music, word processing documents, spreadsheets, video games, and most existing iPhone apps.[

2. iPad

Apple introduced the iPad 2, which had a faster processor and two cameras on the front and back, respectively. It also added support for optional 3G service. However, the availability of the iPad 2 has been limited as a result of the devastating earthquake and ensuing tsunami in Japan in March 2011. the iPad mini was also introduced, with a reduced 7.9-inch display and featuring much of the same internal specifications as the iPad. iPad users have downloaded 3 billion apps, while the total App Store downloads is over 25 billion downloads.

3. iPhone
Steve Jobs introduced the long-anticipated iPhone, a convergence of an Internet-enabled Smartphone and iPod.

The original iPhone was released on June 29, 2007 for $499 (4 GB) and $599 (8 GB).
In 2008, it was updated to have 16 GB of memory.

In 2012, Apple introduced the sixth-generation iPhone, the iPhone 5.


It added a 4-inch display, 4G connectivity, and the upgraded Apple A6 chip, among several other improvements. Two million iPhones were sold in the first twenty-four hours of pre-ordering and over 5 million handsets were sold in the first 3 days of its launch.

4. Apple TV
At the 2007 Macworld conference, Jobs demonstrated the Apple TV, (previously known as the iTV), a set-top video device intended to bridge the sale of content from iTunes with high-definition televisions. The Apple TV originally incorporated a 40 GB hard drive for storage, and plays video at a maximum resolution of 720p. In 2007 a 160 GB drive was released alongside the existing 40 GB model and on January 15. Apple also reduced the price of the device to $99.

The Original

This original logo was designed by Ron Wayne, who started Apple with Jobs and Woz in 1976. In 1977 White sold his portion of Apple back to Jobs and Woz when they incorporated. The image is a pen and ink illustration of Sir Issac Newton leaning against an apple tree with a portion of a William Wordsworth poem running around the border: NewtonA mind forever voyaging through strange seas of thoughtalone (Prelude, Book III, Residence at Cambridge) Steve Jobs decided to scrap this image because he felt that Waynes logo was too cerebral and not easily reproduced at small sizes.

The Rainbow Logo

In 1977, with Wayne gone from the company, Jobs turned to the Regis McKenna Advertising Agency to produce a new, more iconic logo. After several attempts and variatons (and a ton of money spent), the result was the most iconic of all Apple logos. The Rainbow Apple logo.
This logo will forever be one that pops into my mind when I think of Appleand I dont think Im alone on that. This iconic logo helped make Apple a world wide brand, and continues to be used by fans on Apple products to this day . This logo was retired in 1999.

The Logo Reinvented


The Modern look for the Apple logo has had a variety of color variations in recent years. The official design is chrome looking, but we have seen the logo in a variety of colors on Apples official site, and within OS X itself. The current logo in Tiger is blue. It has appeared on the site as red, blue, and gray. The Apple logo has become one of the most iconic and recgonizable logos in the world, so it is doubtful that it will ever change too drastically from its current look, but its interesting to see how it has changed over the years, and Im curious to see how it will evolve in time.
