Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, who revolutionized technology through his design, marketing and creation of personal computers and mobile devices, has died at 56, the company announced Wednesday.
“We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today,” Apple said in a brief statement.
“Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve.”
He had stepped down from Apple in late August to deal with the effects of an unspecified illness.
