One of the world’s most prosperous companies, Apple is known for its iPhone, iPad, iPod, iMac, MacBook, iTunes and App Store products and services. Based in Cupertino, California, the company has been helmed by CEO Tim Cook since August 2011, a month before former CEO – and co-founder – Steve Jobs died. Expect to see unbiased news, reviews and opinion on Apple and its products in Gizmodo UK’s Apple hub here.

We know a lot about Steve Jobs's penchant for responding to email, but did you know that in simpler times, when pen and paper and typewriter were the norm, he sent paper letters and computer chips to adoring fans?
