6 By Saving Apple
It may be hard to imagine now, but there was a time when Apple was failing. In the later 1990s, the company was on the verge of bankruptcy. The iMac G3, along with other factors and strategy changes, provided both a financial and symbolic return of solvency.
The iMac G3 also marked the triumphant return of Apple co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs to the Cupertino tech giant. From there, it was only a matter of time before Jobs and Apple unleashed the iPod, and eventually, the iPhone.
