Apple Inc was founded in 1976 by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. The company is headquartered in Cupertino, California, United States, and designs, develops, and sells consumer electronics (including the iPad, iPhone, Mac, and Apple Watch), computer software, and provides services such as AppleCare.
Apple was incorporated as Apple Computer Inc in January 1977. Within a few years of the company's launch, Jobs and Wozniak had hired computer designers and had a production line, and by 1980 Apple had gone public.
Probably the company's greatest decision was to acquire NeXT (February 1997) and bring Steve Jobs back into the fold, where he regained the title of CEO in 2000. From there, the company cut a number of product lines (including the Newton - a handheld device), to focus on its core products. The company then went on to start Apple Stores in 2001, and launched the iPhone at the Macworld Conference & Expo in January 2007.
For the 2019 fiscal year, Apple employed 137,000 people globally. Apple’s fiscal year is the 52- or 53-week period that ends on the last Saturday of September. Therefore, the company's year end fluctuates from year to year.

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
