Apple became the first US-listed company to hit a $2 trillion valuation on Wednesday, a milestone for the company under CEO Tim Cook's tenure.
When Cook took over as CEO, there were many questions about whether the company could continue to innovate without Jobs.
Nearly a decade into his tenure as Apple's CEO, Cook has put his stamp on the company, transforming Apple into a company that's focused on digital health, privacy, sustainability, and digital services.
Cook was tasked with leading Apple as the market for its key product — the smartphone — matured, forcing the company to expand and innovate in new ways.
Apple's $2 trillion market capitalization is another vote of confidence in Cook's Apple.
Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.
When Tim Cook took over as Apple's CEO in August 2011 shortly before Steve Jobs' death, his earliest critics questioned the direction of Apple's innovation and creativity without Jobs, mostly driven by the fact that Apple's most beloved products were still those invented under Jobs.
Simply put, Cook was known for his prowess in operations, while Jobs was the visionary. Jobs even said that Cook isn't "a product person," according to his biographer Walter Isaacson.
But in 2020, those concerns seem less relevant than ever. The tech giant became the first United States-listed company — and only the second company ever, after Saudi Aramco — to hit a $2 trillion market capitalization on Wednesday, a valuation sure to be one of the hallmarks of Cook's tenure.
The $2 trillion milestone is just another sign that Cook's early critics were wrong. Apple may never invent another product that's as revolutionary as the iPhone, but Cook has pulled off an even more challenging feat: stepping out of Jobs' shadow.
Under Cook's reign, Apple has evolved into more than just the "iPhone" or "iPod" company. It's delved into the digital health market, dominated the wearable tech industry with the Apple Watch, created a new product category that's been widely emulated by competitors with its AirPods, and re-invented itself as a company that's just as focused on digital services as it is hardware.
It's also made a major push for privacy and sustainability in an industry not known for either, including committing to becoming 100% carbon neutral for its supply chain and products by 2030. And Cook has deftly navigated a trade war with China and a global pandemic that uprooted its global operations.
Cook succeeded in making Apple his own, but he also effectively morphed Apple's business as the industry began to change. The smartphone market started to mature only a few years after Cook took over, sparking worries about Apple's future given its reliance on the iPhone. The pressure was mounting for Apple to build "the next big thing," setting expectations for the Apple Watch sky-high when Apple unveiled it back in 2014.
The Apple Watch wasn't an immediate hit. Initial reviews were lukewarm, but fast-forward to 2020, and Apple now ships more wearable devices than any other company, including its biggest competitors like Samsung, Huawei, and Fitbit, according to The International Data Corporation.
Apple's services business has also blossomed under Cook, as it's now the second-largest driver of Apple's quarterly revenue behind the iPhone. The company's success in both wearables and services helped offset slowing iPhone sales throughout 2019, giving Wall Street confidence about Apple's long-term outlook and easing concerns about the iPhone's slump.
Of course, not everything under Cook will be remembered fondly. Apple, and other tech giants such as Google, Facebook, and Amazon, have been under scrutiny over concerns that their dominance and influence hampers competition in the industry. Apple's position as both the operator of and a competitor in its App Store has been at the heart of lawmaker's concerns, and "Fortnite" creator Epic is the latest developer to take issue with the company's controversial policies.
Apple has also been at odds with the FBI under Cook's watch over its refusal to create a backdoor into iPhones to assist with investigations because of security concerns. And not every new Apple product released under Cook's tenure has been a hit; Apple's HomePod smart speaker trails rival devices from Google and Amazon.
Cook's innovation has turned Apple into a modern corporation with multiple revenue streams — not just a hardware manufacturer with a devoted user base. But Apple's $2 trillion valuation is a sign that these long-term bets on services and subscriptions are certainly paying off.

A cable broke and tore a hole in the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico on Monday.
The telescope had just reopened to study a potentially dangerous asteroid, shortly after Tropical Storm Isaias passed over the island.
It's unclear why the cable broke, but the facility is closed again as engineers assess the damage.

One of the world's most prominent astronomical observatories has a hole.
On Monday, a 3-inch-thick cable at the Arecibo Observatory broke, tearing a gash 100 feet long in the reflector dish of the 20-acre radio telescope in Puerto Rico.
The observatory had just reopened after a temporary closure due to Tropical Storm Isaias when the cable, which helped support a metal platform, snapped at about 2:45 a.m. ET. Now the facility is closed again as engineers assess the damage, according to the University of Central Florida, a co-operator of the telescope.
It was not immediately clear how the cable broke or whether the damage was related to Isaias.
Astronomers use the telescope to study hazardous asteroids as they fly past Earth, in hopes of identifying space rocks on a collusion course early enough to intervene before they strike.
Scientists have also used Arecibo to search for signs of intelligent extraterrestrial life. In 1974, Arecibo beamed out the most powerful broadcast Earth has ever sent to communicate with potential aliens.
Then in 2016, the telescope detected the first repeating fast radio bursts — mysterious space signals of unknown origin.
The cable's fall also damaged six to eight panels in the telescope's Gregorian Dome: the part that focuses its radiation to the points in space that astronomers want to study. It twisted the platform used to access the dome as well.
"We have a team of experts assessing the situation," Francisco Cordova, the director of the observatory, said in a statement. "Our focus is assuring the safety of our staff, protecting the facilities and equipment, and restoring the facility to full operations as soon as possible, so it can continue to assist scientists around the world."
Tropical Storm Isaias passed over Puerto Rico on July 30, before it developed into a hurricane, leading observatory operators to shutter the facility for a few days.
They turned it back on earlier this month to study a potentially dangerous asteroid the size of five football fields, which was passing Earth at an optimal distance for the observatory to check it out.
NASA had previously calculated a 1 in 70,000 chance that the space rock could impact our planet between 2086 and 2101, so astronomers wanted to track it more closely to better calculate the odds of an impact. But when a team at Arecibo trained the telescope at the asteroid to determine its shape and orbit, they discovered that it likely won't pass close enough to Earth to pose a threat in the future.
During those observations, the telescope was functioning well.
"Fortunately, the storm passed quickly without damage to the telescope or the radar system, and the maintenance and electronics teams were able to activate the telescope from hurricane lockdown in time for the observations," Sean Marshall, an observatory scientist who led the team doing those radar observations, said at the time.SEE ALSO: A handful of new telescopes are about to transform the hunt for alien life and our understanding of the universe itself
