It has been a year since Steve Jobs died. Apple is set to close out its most profitable year ever. Its stock is now up 65 percent for the year. With the top executive team still present, the iPhone 5 is selling at a record pace, and fans continue to line up and even camp out for a chance to be one of the first with a new Apple product.
Last year, on this day, Steve Jobs died after a long and hard battle with pancreatic cancer. A day earlier before his death, the iPhone 4S was announced.
Today Apple replaced its homepage with a remembrance video of its co-founder alongside with a message from Tim Cook. You can read the full letter below:
A message from Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO.
Steve’s passing one year ago today was a sad and difficult time for all of us. I hope that today everyone will reflect on his extraordinary life and the many ways he made the world a better place.
One of the greatest gifts Steve gave to the world is Apple. No company has ever inspired such creativity or set such high standards for itself. Our values originated from Steve and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple. We share the same privilege and responsibility of carrying his legacy into the future.
I’m incredibly proud of the work we are doing, delivering products that our customers love and dreaming up new ones that will delight them down the road.
“It’s a wonderful tribute to Steve’s memory and everything he stood for.
