This chart shows Apple's steady climb toward becoming the first trillion-dollar company in the US

Apple just became the first US publicly traded company to reach a $1 trillion market capitalization.

The milestone was hit when the company's share price rose to $207.05 Thursday morning. It comes just days after the company reported its strongest third quarter, which spurred a 6% spike in share price Wednesday.

As this chart from Statista shows, Apple's market capitalization has been steadily rising as its flagship products have evolved over the years. Since 2008, the launch of the original iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and most recently the iPhone X, have stimulated the smartphone maker's unprecedented growth in market value.Advertisement
