Does Microsoft Own Apple?

Answer

Microsoft doesn't own Apple. Microsoft just bought $150 million worth of Apple's non-voting shares, pledged to not sell them for at least three years, and thus became a significant investor in its rival. Microsoft currently seems to own 0.0046% of Apple through a private capital management fund.
