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 great privilege and responsibility of carrying his future 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.
Steve Jobs not only affected Apple greatly in his time with the company, but has left a legacy behind him that is evident in Apple’s continuous approach to producing the best products possible.
The 5th of October has been declared as Black Turtleneck Day by fans, paying homage to Jobs through the clothing style he became synonymous with.
