Steve Jobs dies aged 56

Apple's legendary co-founder leaves behind a game-changing legacy of iDevices


Steve Jobs, Apple’s co-founder and former CEO, has died aged 56 following a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Jobs’ death comes just a day after Apple unveiled the iPhone 4S, the latest in a series of iDevices masterminded by the company’s legendary figurehead.

Jobs stepped down from his position as Apple’s CEO on August 24 this year to take up a role as chairman of the board.

Apple’s home page has been given over to a tribute to Jobs, with the company announcing in a statement that, “Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being.”
