The world’s biggest tech company, Apple, has commemorated its co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs 10 years after he passed away from pancreatic cancer.
Apple’s homepage has been adorned with images of Jobs throughout his years at Apple, as well as releasing an official film and a statement from the Jobs family.
Jobs was married to Laurene Powell Jobs and the couple had four children – Lisa, Eve, Reed and Erin.
The film runs for just under three minutes and features the same photos seen on Apple.com, as well as footage of Jobs speaking during his famous keynotes and other events while revealing many of his life-changing devices.
“Hard to believe it’s been 10 years,” Tim Cook, who took over as the head of Apple after Jobs, wrote on Twitter of his predecessor. “Celebrating you today and always.”

The Jobs family also released a statement on the 10-year anniversary of his death. You can read the statement in full below:
For a decade now, mourning and healing have gone together. Our gratitude has become as great as our loss.
Each of us has found his or her own path to consolation, but we have come together in a beautiful place of love for Steve, and for what he taught us.
For all of Steve’s gifts, it was his power as a teacher that has endured. He taught us to be open to the beauty of the world, to be curious around new ideas, to see around the next corner, and most of all to stay humble in our own beginner’s mind.
There are many things we still see through his eyes, but he also taught to look for ourselves. He gave us equipment for living, and it has served us well.
One of our greatest sources of consolation has been our association of Steve with beauty. The sight of something beautiful — a wooded hillside, a well‑made object — recalls his spirit to us. Even in his years of suffering, he never lost his faith in the beauty of existence.
Memory is inadequate for what is in our hearts: we miss him profoundly. We were blessed to have him as husband and father.
