Much has changed since Apple’s humble beginning in a garage in Los Altos, California. Today Apple Inc. has become one of the most valuable companies in the world. Apple’s global revenue surpassed 215 billion U.S. dollars for the third straight year in 2017. On August 2. 2018, as its shares hit 207.05 U.S. dollars, Apple became the world's first trillion-dollar public company, beating rivals like Amazon and Microsoft.
Apart from its successful hardware, Apple has also begun to increase the revenue generated from its app store. Many of the company’s most popular apps are social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat. Gaming apps such as Fortnite and Candy Crush Saga make an average of over 1 million U.S. dollars in revenue on the app store each day. Spotify, Pandora, and Amazon Prime Music compete with Apple’s own “Apple Music” to provide consumers with streaming music options when they are on the go.
Many of Apple’s products have become integral parts of their consumers’ daily lives. As of 2017 around 79 percent of U.S. based owners of Apple devices stated that they make use of their devices on a daily basis. The strength of its products is not the only thing that has made Apple so successful; as of 2017, 88 percent of consumers state that they are either very satisfied or rather satisfied with Apple’s customer service.
