In 1996,Apple had failed to deliver a new operating system and they turned to Steve Jobs' company, NeXT and so returned to apple as an advisor later taking control as interim CEO and in 1998 he brought Apple back from the brink of bankruptcy to profitability.

As the new CEO of the company, Jobs developed the iMac, iTunes, iPod, iPhone, and iPad.The success of these products resulted in Apple becoming the world's most valuable company in 2011.This 'rebirth' of Apple is regarded as one of the greatest turnarounds in business history and it was all made possible thanks to Steve Jobs.
