Most iconic Apple products ever made

Culture
[MUSIC] Apple may not only see the first or the best of what it does. But even the most cynical Apple hater can agree that it helps pave the way for the products we use today, making technology more accessible to everyone. I'm Vanessa Hand Orellana filling in for IS. And today I'll be counting down five of the most iconic Apple products ever made Let's start in chronological order. The year 1977, the product the apple II. This was not Jobs and Wozniak's first computer but it was the first one with mass appeal. The one that put the duo on the radar. Unlike the first Apple which was more like a circuit board for experts. The Apple II was a more integrated personal computer for everyone. It sold for almost two decades before finally retiring in 1993. Next We have the Macintosh. In 1984, when it launched, Apple had just introduced the Lisa less than a year before, and was now looking to make its features mainstream. Like the Lisa, the Macintosh featured a graphic user interface that Jobs borrowed from Xerox, with the windows and cursor we still use today. But unlike the Lisa, which cost a most 10 k at launch The Macintosh was more affordable and easier to set up and Apple made sure it would be a hit investing more than a million dollars in a Super Bowl ad that would have made Orville himself drop the remote. Fast forward almost a decade and a half for our next one, the iMac. The computer that brought apple out of the dark ages, gave Jobs a hell of a comeback and was Jony Ive's first big product design The computer itself was by no means the most powerful. But with it's built in monitor, bubble like plastic in the back, in all the colors of the rainbow, it proved yet again that Apple had high standards, poor design and usability, and that we're all suckers for pink. Let's just say the iPod was Apple's way of bringing in the new millennium. By 2001 there were already a slew of mp3 players out on the market, but none like the iPod. It was a device that finally made us ditch our Walkman. Ten songs in a cassette that you ripped off from your local radio station versus a thousand songs in the palm of your hand. More importantly, it paved the way for that little known music service called iTunes, which continues to be the reason why some people people remain loyal to the Apple eco-system. We cap off our list with the iPhone. You knew it was coming. Hard to believe it was almost ten years ago now that Steve Jobs presented what everyone thought were three different products; an iPod, and internet communicator and a phone. He shocked them all by revealing that he was actually talking about the same device. The iPhone was by no means smartphone, but it's credited for edging out the physical keyboard, and making capacitive touch screen the standard. The phone took 6 months to finally go on sale. And the apps didn't come until a year later, but It ushered in a new era of connectivity. So there you have them, five products that stand the test of time. Cheers to the next 40 years of iDevices, Apple. [BLANK_AUDIO]
