Apple Inc. is an American corporation that designs and markets electronics, software and computers, including Macintosh computers, the iPod, the iPhone and the iPad.

The TrueType format was jointly developed by Apple and Microsoft in 1991, several years after the release of the PostScript Type 1 font format. Despite the format’s technical superiority (most of the system fonts on both Mac and Windows computers are TrueType) it never became popular amongst designers.
