Apple III: Apple II Emulation Integer & Applesoft BASIC

The Apple III (Apple ///) has the  capability to run Apple II software. This emulation boot disk is required to turn the Apple III into a standard 48 Kb Apple II Plus. The keyboard, internal floppy drive (and one external Disk III), display and speaker all act as Apple II peripherals. The paddle and serial ports can also function in Apple II mode. Specialised circuity blocked access to Apple III features when running in Apple II emulation. This was done primarily to discourage further development and interest in the Apple II line, and to push the Apple III as its successor. For example, no more than 48 Kb of RAM can be accessed, even if the machine has 128 kB of RAM or higher present, making many Apple II programs impossible to run. Access to lowercase support, 80 columns text, or its more advanced graphics and sound are blocked by this hardware. A third-party company, Titan Technologies, sold an expansion board called the III Plus II that allows Apple II mode to access more memory, a standard game port, and with a later released companion card, even emulate the Apple IIe.
