David Fincher was originally attached to direct, but was dropped from the film by Sony after his demands - 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.

According to reports, auditions did not use anything from Aaron Sorkin''s screenplay. Instead, actors read and act out scenes from The Newsroom (2012), a television series created by Sorkin.

Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak, was an actual consultant for this project.

The lead female role was also offered to Jessica Chastain.

Leonardo DiCaprio was originally set to play the lead role but dropped out to do The Revenant (2015) instead.

In the film, the 1984 shareholder meeting and product launch was replicated at the original location, the Flint Center of De Anza Community College in Cupertino, California.

Aaron Sorkin has revealed that the film will consist of three, 30-minute scenes spreading across sixteen years of the life of Steve Jobs. All of the scenes will dramatize backstage events before three major Apple product launches (the Macintosh in 1984, NeXT in 1988, and the iMac in 1998). These scenes will take place in real time at "two auditoriums, a restaurant and a garage," with a few flashbacks depicting key moments of Jobs' life inserted throughout the story.

Danny Boyle's first movie since Trainspotting (1996) that is not distributed by Fox/Fox Searchlight.

Sony Pictures Entertainment & Columbia Pictures have decided to put the project in turnaround essentially dropping out of the production & distribution obligations leaving it available for any other studio to pick up. Universal Pictures in the process picked up the project which isn't the first time that Universal has picked up a project put into turnaround by another studio - and the truth is that they are just coming off a very successful version of this maneuver. Dumb and Dumber To (2014) was originally set up at Warner Bros. before being dropped, and Universal swooped in to make sure that the film got made. This paid off big, as the comedy opened to a solid $36 million in its first three days. Picking up discarded projects hasn't always worked for the studio - case in point: Kick-Ass 2 (2013) - but there exists plenty of potential in the Steve Jobs biopic, and Universal seems to see it.

3rd movie based on Steve Jobs's life.

Not to be confused with Jobs (2013).

Ike Barinholtz auditioned for the role of Steve Wozniak. Seth Rogen was chosen for the role instead.

Christian Bale was sought out first for role of Steve Jobs back when David Fincher was originally attached to direct the project.

Natalie Portman was in talks for a role.
