A message from Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO

Steve’s passing one year ago today was a sad and diffi­cult time for all of us. I hope that today everyone will reflect on his extra­or­di­nary life and the many ways he made the world a better place.

One of the greatest gifts Steve gave to the world is Apple. No company has ever inspired such creativity or set such high stan­dards for itself. Our values orig­i­nated from Steve and his spirit will forever be the foun­da­tion of Apple. We share the great priv­i­lege and respon­si­bility of carrying his future legacy into the future.

I’m incred­ibly proud of the work we are doing, deliv­ering prod­ucts that our customers love and dreaming up new ones that will delight them down the road. It’s a wonderful tribute to Steve’s memory and every­thing he stood for.
