    Apple actually uses their own slight variation called "Apple Myriad".

    Yes, they did. It was made for Apple by Galápagos Design.

    Myriad Set is a newer reworking of Myriad Apple/Pro, that can take advantage of OpenType gimmicks.

    Yes, Apple used to use a custom narrow variation of Adobe Garamond.

    I could have sworn this was correct too.. and it was what came to my mind when reading the little caption on the main page... hmm I'm still not convinced that its myriad... - and indeed i was thinking of the 'Think Different' days... along with their main logotype.. but heres a link for the low down on the whole matter:
