Apple Scanner

Apple revolutionized the scanning industry with the introduction of the Apple Scanner in 1988, and it quickly became a staple for home and office use. The scanner was part of the Apple Scanner series and was designed, manufactured, and sold by Apple from 1988 to 1991.

The Apple Scanner was a game-changer, featuring a scanning resolution of up to 300 dpi, 4-bit color depth, and an 8.5 x 14-inch scanning area. It also included a SCSI port and an optional ADB port, making it a versatile option for users.

However, after just three years on the market, Apple decided to discontinue the Apple Scanner on September 27, 1991, and replaced it with the Apple OneScanner. Despite its brief time on the market, the Apple Scanner remains a nostalgic and noteworthy product in the history of technology. Now 34 years old, it’s a testament to the innovative spirit of Apple and its ability to push the boundaries of what’s possible.
