Former chief executive and co-founder of US technology giant Apple Steve Jobs has died, the company says. He was 56.
He was one of the world's best-known business leaders and introduced the iPod and the iPhone to the world. His death came a day after Apple unveiled its latest iPhone 4S model. More than almost any other business leader, Jobs was indistinguishable from the company he co-founded in the 1970s.
The company posted an orbituary on Apple.com:
"Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his sprit will forever be the foundation of Apple."
