BREAKING NEWS: Apple co-founder Steve Jobs Dies aged 56

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."

iPhone 5 event October 4 to be Hosted by CEO Tim Cook

Apple is now expected to hold a media event on Tuesday, Oct. 4 presided over by its new chief executive, Tim Cook, to introduce the company's fifth-generation iPhone.

Steve Jobs in the past has been the man to usually host such events, but he resigned from his position in August.

During a medical leave of absence by Jobs in 2009, it was Schiller who handled the presentation to debut Apple's iPhone 3GS, not Cook.

Apple 'just weeks away' from announcing 'very different' iPhone 5

"We’re just weeks away from the announcement of the new Apple iPhone 5, according to an Apple employee who asked not to be named because he was not allowed to speak publicly for the company," Nick Bilton wrote in a report for The New York Times.

His sources within Apple also said case designs that recently surfaced online "seemed potentially authentic." The designs, which were quickly taken down, depicted a next-generation iPhone with curved sides, a flat back, and a mute switch moved to the right side of the handset.

According to an Apple engineer "familiar with the new iPhone," the company's next handset will be "fairly different" from the previous generation. The source also confirmed the widely-held belief that the device will sport an 8-megapixel camera and the faster A5 processor currently found in the iPad 2.
