It wasn’t the birthplace of Apple’s first innovations; no designs, breadboarding, prototyping, or planning of products occurred there. We didn’t manufacture anything in the garage.

Its only purpose was that it felt like home because we were just starting and had no money,” Wozniak shared.

Wozniak clarified that the main developmental work for the first Apple computer was actually conducted in his cubicle at Hewlett-Packard in Cupertino, California.

“The real work—soldering, assembling the chips, and designing them—happened in my cubicle at Hewlett-Packard,” he stated.
