Universal Pictures objavio da je počelo snimanje filma „Stiv Džobs“ u San Francisku.
The three sequences in the film were filmed on 16mm, 35mm, and digital to illustrate the advancement in Apple's technology across the 16 years depicted of Jobs' life
According to reports, auditions did not use anything from Aaron Sorkin's screenplay
Instead, actors read and acted out scenes from The Newsroom (2012), a television series created by Sorkin.
Seth Rogen met with Steve Wozniak extensively to understand him
Rogen also researched Wozniak's keynotes and speeches online. Rogen cited watching an old eighties video on repeat, featuring Wozniak giving a tour of the Apple museum at their headquarters as part of his research. Rogen later admitted that he had no idea who Steve Wozniak was prior to working on this movie.
Kate Winslet found out about the movie from her makeup artist while working on The Dressmaker (2015)
The makeup artist just got hired for this movie and told Winslet. Winslet said that she was intrigued by a movie written by Aaron Sorkin, directed by Danny Boyle and starring Michael Fassbender that she asked for more details about the female part. She later sent a picture of herself with a black wig and then she got the script and met with Boyle which resulted in winning the part.
David Fincher was originally attached to direct, but was dropped
a $10,000,000 salary and full creative control of the project - could not be met by the studio. Fincher wanted Christian Bale to play the lead role. After his departure, Danny Boyle signed on to direct and Leonardo DiCaprio was approached about the title role. Ultimately, however, DiCaprio passed on the project and Christian Bale was offered it instead. However, Bale also declined the role, feeling he was not right for the part after which Michael Fassbender entered to star in the film.
Radnja je smeštena u period između lansiranja tri dobro poznata proizvoda i 1998. godine, kad je predstavljen iMac, a film nas vodi iza scene digitalne revolucije i prikazuje nam intimni portret genijalnog čoveka koji se nalazio u njenom epicentru.
