Founded in 1976 by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, Apple's backstory is perhaps one of the most famous in the world of business.
The pair, who were in their early twenties at the time, sold their cars and personal possessions in order to fund their ambitious project from Job's parents' garage in Los Altos, California, of building a computer from scratch.
After making their first sale of 50 units for $500 (around $3000 today) each, the company never looked back.
Years later, after a rather acrimonious split, Jobs famously returned to rejuvenate the struggling company during the 2000s as Microsoft had almost pushed it out of the marketplace.
Jobs managed to turn things around by capturing his innovative spirit that led him to create the company 30 years earlier.
The company is now worth over $2 trillion.
