Tech giant Apple, Inc., made history late Thursday morning when it crossed the threshold to become America’s first “trillion dollar company.” With an individual share price of $207.05, Apple reached the milestone just before 11 am ET.

The day was a bit of a roller coaster for many following the company’s historic milestone, beginning when an update failure led to dozens of outlets misreporting that Apple had met that $1 trillion dollar mark much earlier than it actually did.

Apple may not stay over that $1 trillion mark through Thursday’s closing bell, but even reaching it for a split second is a historic accomplishment.
