Video: Steve Jobs introduces first iMac in 1998

On May 6, 1998 Steve Jobs introduced the first product after his return to Apple – the original iMac. Apple declared the ‘i’ in iMac to stand for “Internet”. It also represented the product’s focus as a personal device (‘i’ for “individual”). Attention was given to the out-of-box experience: the user needed to go through only two steps to set up and connect to the Internet.
