Apple's Product History: 2001-2011

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Apple (AAPL - Get Report) has had a product timeline unlike almost any other company. Every year since 2001, Apple has released a product that the masses end up wanting and clamoring for.

While next year is set to be a little different -- Apple must cope without the leadership of its visionary founder -- rumors of an Apple TV set launch have given some tech enthusiasts hope. When word came out from his biography that Jobs had "finally cracked" the problem of building a TV set with a simple user interface, analysts, including Ticonderoga Securities, have speculated this could be a huge revenue driver for Apple.

Here is Apple's product timeline since the launch of the first iPod in 2001 to the present day.

Apple introduced iTunes in January 2001, a digital jukebox of sorts. It allowed you to store all your songs on your computer in one place.

In October, Apple changed the world, by introducing consumers to the iPod. It was described as being able to have a "thousand songs in your pocket."

Apple also released a new operating system for its Macintosh line of computers, OS X, as well as opening its first retail store in MacLean, Va.
