Tim Cook, the chief operating officer of Apple has replaced Steve Jobs who has resigned as Chief Executive of the computer giant.
Jobs says he no longer plans to meet duties following a liver transplant after suffering from pancreatic cancer.
Mr Jobs said “”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.”
Seen as the creative force of the resurgence of Apple in in many years, Jobs has driven the company to be one of the world’s largest with innovative products like the iPod, iPhone, iPad and many home computer products.
