The Apple brand name is synonymous with technology. Even those who do not currently own any Apple devices are likely to have heard of popular products such as the iPhone, iPad, and Macintosh computer (Mac, for short). Apple is also known for its software, such as the OS X and iOS operating systems. With annual revenue totaling $233 billion in 2015, its quite clear that Apple is one of the global leaders in the technology sector. As such, Apple contact information and details about Apple products is always in high demand.
There are many reasons as to why someone may want to call Apple. The company offers products for both individual and business use. Product and technical support are popular topics for support personnel and for that reason the company employs a large number of customer service staff. In addition to being able to phone Apple for assistance, it is possible to visit any of the over 450 retail locations that are open for business in over 16 countries. Not all store locations are authorized service providers, however. Call Apple by dialing 0870 280 2606 to locate an authorized service provider near you.
Apple History and Business Information
Apple was founded in 1976 by three men: Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne. The original objective of the trio was to develop and sell personal computers for the home. The Apple I personal computer kit was the first product that was released by the company, and the product was made available to the public in July of 1976. Apple would go on to become incorporated in 1977, without Ronald Wayne, who sold his share to the other two partners. In that same year, the Apple II was released. The Apple II was the brainchild of Steve Wozniak, and was noted for its color graphics and structure.
In 1980, Apple went public, hitting the market at $22 per share. In 1984, the first Macintosh was released. The Macintosh was introduced to the public by way of a $1.5 million television commercial that aired during Super Bowl XVIII. That piece of advertising would drive initial sales of the computer up, but follow-up sales numbers were less than impressive. Lackluster sales were blamed on its high price tag and limited software titles. Sales numbers received a boost when the LaserWriter, the world’s first laser printer, was marketed with the Macintosh.
As time went on, Apple would go on to introduce the PowerBook, which was essentially the first ever modern laptop. Also introduced were operating systems that would compete with Windows, which at the time was gaining market share. The highlight of the 1990’s was the release of the iMac, which served as the foundation ideas for later “I” products such as the iPod and iPhone. In 2007, Apple would be re-branded as Apple Inc., a name which Steve Jobs felt better suited the company which had become so much more than just a computer company. Additional devices credited to Apple are many, and include a variety of mobile phones, music devices, tablet computers, and more.
In 2011 Steve Jobs passed away, leaving behind quite a legacy. In 2012, Apple stock value would reach a record setting $624 billion as device sales numbers continued to climb. In 2014, 51 million iPhones sold in fiscal quarter one alone. Approximately 26 million iPads were also sold during that same quarter. The most recent Apple products to hit the market include the Apple smart watch and Apple TV media streaming device. The company also continues to create new software and reportedly plans to start producing electric, self-driving cars as soon as 2020.
