What Companies Does Apple Own? – [Answered]

Apple was founded by Ronald Wayne, Steve Jobs, and Steve Wozniak back in April 1976, focusing on development and sales of Wozniak’s Apple I personal computer.

Just after a year, it was incorporated as Apple Inc. in 1977. During that time, sales of computers were gradually increasing, including the sales of their own Apple II.

With the passage of time, Apple managed to not only offer personal computers but also increased their offerings to include mobiles, consumer electronics, and computer software.

Sure, they do add new features and products to their listings or offerings but they also acquire other startups and businesses as well.
