In Pictures: The Apple family tree

Apple platforms through the years

Newton (1993 to 1998)

CPU class: ARM OS: Newton OS Development status: Open Platform size: 7

The Newton spawned a vibrant third-party software community, albeit one that was small in size because of relatively limited sales of Newton hardware. Frequently lampooned in the media for its sometimes inaccurate (but still pretty good for the time) handwriting recognition, the Newton never reached a broad customer base. Still, its high profile in the media catalyzed the larger PDA market of the 1990s.
