Apple is now worth $1 trillion.
That’s right - $1 trillion!
To put that into perspective, that’s equivalent to, um, buying a million million songs on iTunes.
It’s officially the world’s first publicly traded company to hit this mark, with shares at a record high of over $207. Apple’s closest competitors are Amazon and Alphabet, Google’s parent company.
Founded in 1976 by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne, Apple has seen its share price rise by more than 50,000%. That’s equivalent to, um, nothing else really on this planet. Ever.
Apple say they now have 1.3 billion active devices worldwide. There are currently around 7.6 billion people in the world.
So the question is: does everyone reading this own an Apple product?
