New Delhi: It has been a year Steve Jobs passed away and Apple commemorated the day with a video and homage to the man who co-founded the iconic brand.

Apple posted a two-minute video with snippets of Jobs and the various products he introduced, from the early Apple computers to the iPhone.

Jobs died October 5, 2011 at the age of 56 after a long battle with cancer.

Present Apple CEO and Job’s successor, Tim Cook, said, "Steve's passing one year ago was a sad and difficult time for all of us." The message was posted on the company’s website.

"I hope that today everyone will reflect on his extraordinary life and the many ways he made the world a better place," he added.

Jobs was on helm of Apple Inc for fourteen years. Under Jobs, Apple introduced its first computers and then the Macintosh, which became wildly popular in the 1980s. But he left Apple in 1985 after an internal power struggle and started NeXT Computer company, aimed at businesses.
