Steve Jobs Resigns as Apple CEO

The legend of Silicon Valley Steve Jobs is officially stepping down as Apple’s chief executive. Jobs has announced in a public letter on Wednesday that he can no longer meet his duties in that role. The company said Jobs will be replaced by Tim Cook, who was Apple’s chief operating officer.



To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community:
I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come. I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the board sees fit, as chairman of the board, director and Apple employee.

As far as my successor goes, I strongly recommend that we execute our succession plan and name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple. I believe Apple’s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role. I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you.



Steve Jobs resignation as CEO of Apple should be no surprise to anyone. But the questions is, do you think Apple is ready for the next step? Will Steve Jobs resignation have an effect on Apple’s sales??


  1. Thanks for linking to my site! Like you said, no surprises there, huh.

    Apple – Steve Jobs = Apple.

    When they unofficially own the supply chain throughout Asia, no-one can touch them. The hard work is done, all they have to do now is steer the ship, release a TV and watch everyone else fail to compete with them on price.

  2. You're welcome.

    You're 100% right!! What you wrote in your post was a prediction of whats going to happen, and it sure did 🙂

    And that ship has already sailed, my friend. The market is controlled by Apple.
