No, Bill Gates does not own Apple. But Bill Gates of Microsoft made a $150 million investment in Apple on August 6, 1997.
And while it’s true that he has had a significant impact on the modern world, many people mistakenly believe that he had a larger role in creating Apple than was actually the case. The truth is that while Bill Gates did once own shares in Apple (which were later sold), he played a role in making it what it is today. It turns out one of his biggest contributions to Apple was helping Steve Jobs get back into his old company by investing $150 million at a time when it was struggling to stay afloat during Jobs’ first stint as CEO. In addition, he also helped develop some early software for Macintosh computers (which would later become popular among techies). While this may seem like insignificant trivia about one of the most famous tech moguls around the world — especially if you don’t know much about either company — I wanted to clear things up for anyone who might find themselves wondering this very question someday!
Who Owns Most of Apple Stock?
In the past few years, Apple has been a hot topic among investors and analysts. It seems like everyone wants to know what’s going on with the company, including who owns its stock.

Did Bill Gates invest in Apple?
Yes, Apple was on the verge of bankruptcy when Bill Gate, the founder of Microsoft, invested $150 million in the company on August 6, 1997.
When Was Apple Founded?
On April 1, 1976, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak established Apple.
After all this time, it’s only natural that some people might wonder how much Bill Gates is involved with Apple. While he did make some significant contributions during his tenure at Microsoft and helped Steve Jobs get back on track after leaving the company, there’s no denying that Apple has evolved into an entirely different beast than what he helped build. Even so, it’s clear from his philanthropic efforts that Gates cares deeply about technology as well as improving our world through its use—so perhaps we should be thanking him instead of trying to figure out exactly how much influence he had over today’s iPhones!
