My dream job as a project manager will be to work at Google or Apple, managing technology products and their development. Which area of Project Management should I concentrate on that can help me land a role in any of the within mentioned companies?

Reading from your post, it seems like you want to be a Product Project Manager. Google and/or Apple are agile/scrum companies, delivering features to add value. Learning and gaining experience in Agile will be beneficial. Hope this helps.

You have to figure out what the next step is and focus on it. What you do next depends greatly on where you are now. (Hint: you should look at things with which you are uncomfortable.)

The blunt answer to your question is: all project management areas.
I vote for Stephane comment.
Basic PM knowledge, much wider than agile, is good to look for.

You could pursue a CAPM certificate from PMI, you can buy a basic PM course with it.
https://www.pmi.org/certifications/become-a-project-manager/capm

A certificate has the most value for your self confidence, does not ensure you get a job.

Or go for the PMI PM Ready course and certificate.
https://www.pmi.org/certifications/become-...anagement-ready

Or any other Basic PM course on coursera or elsewhere.

Join PM networks, e.g. a PMI Chapter.

And get a mentor

I made a webinar with Antonio Nieto Rodriguez.

Antonio wrote also an insightful book about it: https://antonionietorodriguez.com/
As already mentioned by Mr. Parent, try to experience all possible ways to deliver the outcomes in a good level, independently of the knowledge areas. Being most familiar and exceling on each one will make you councious about the next steps, be certain of it. Success and happiness on your journey.
