Steve Jobs presents the Original iPhone
The all-in-one concept is born, the smartphone. The iPhone was presented to an exalted public in January 2007, Apple's growth was unstoppable and the iPhone would become the most popular smartphone in the market, ruling the SmartPhone era for ten years. Today, the iPhone is still the best selling device on the market and has catapulted Apple to be the most important company in the world (In addition, Apple introduced the first Apple TV, with the intention of creating the most popular multimedia center).
This device included the possibility of running applications, playing music, recording video, surfing the internet and many functions that until now were nothing more than an odyssey in the devices on the market. It even allowed to use Google Maps. In addition, Apple knew that the future of the smartphone was going through applications, that's why created the App Store, an app store supervised by Apple employees on July 10, 2008, the app store that has now become the most profitable in the world.

With the arrival of the iPhone 4 came the birth of iOS, a mobile operating system that Apple has tried to refer to optimization and performance, since then it has undergone four major updates, going through many other minor updates, up to iOS 9.3.1, current system
Apple presents the iPad
Manzana presented the first tablet with mobile operating system on the market on January 27, 2010, a 9.7-inch multitouch device never seen before. With all the qualities that an iPhone had in huge dimensions, this allowed to consume content much more comfortably, in addition to significantly boosting the iBook Store, the Apple book store, since on a device of that size it made much more sense read books.
Thus, the iPad has been growing in performance but not in size, accompanied by all the news that we were seeing appear on the iPhone. They even varied in size, we saw the iPad Mini being born and later the iPad Pro (13 inches). Currently the iPad, imitating the iPhone, is the best selling tablet on the market.
The iMac and MacBook range continues to grow
Thus, the range of iMac continues to grow, since 2008 the intention is to minimize space, until it reaches the iMac we know today. Plastic models aside to unify in a really well designed screen and a unibody body. On the other hand, In 2008, Apple's laptop was the best selling model in the United States.
In October 2008, the first MacBook Pro, the first with Unibody aluminum cover, was also progressing in software until 2011 when it decided to stop manufacturing the original MacBook. The same 2008 Apple also presented the Macbook Air, an 11-inch model, extremely thin and that put the market upside down, once again Apple had done it again. In addition, the MacBook Air became the most environmentally friendly laptop.
The last knockout was in 2015, when Apple recovered the original MacBook, but this time also aluminum, a fanless laptop that also became the thinnest and lightest on the market, relieving the MacBook Air, but with a price that made the Air the cheapest in the range. Apple's professional range, the Mac Pro, was also renewed in 2013, with an extremely small design, similar to a small black wastebasket, another once again flaunting Jonathan Ive's potential.
2011: The death of Steve Jobs and the arrival of Tim Cook
The hero and villain of Apple said goodbye in 2011, born in Palo Alto in 1955 left us at 56. Cover of Time magazine back in 1982 and creator of the most popular company on the planet. Steve Jobs was a peculiar character, he didn't even have a salary, unlike the big executives he only charged $ 1 for his work at Apple, his benefits were the rent of his shares. If the company went well it would be tremendously rich, but if Apple went bad, he would fall too.
In 2011 before he died he resigned from his position as CEO of Apple to be replaced by his pupil Tim Cook. He fought against a pancreatic cancer diagnosed in 2003, however due to his Buddhist and vegetarian principles he refused to take medication to follow a diet of alternative medicine, a fact that led to a rapid death. Only two years before his death he made his last presentations, introducing iCloud the same day June 6. Until the day before his death, Jobs was working for Apple as a Counselor. Apple shares fell five percentage points automatically, however, Tim Cook has proven to be up to par. Rest in peace Steve.
