The day after taking office, Cook sent a letter to all employees, promising that although Jobs was no longer in charge of the company, Apple “wouldn’t change”.

The iPhone 4S was also the last iPhone to feature Steve Jobs before his death. Jobs had to fight the cancer that was tearing him apart every day, but still had enough enthusiasm to oversee the final product of his life – the iPhone 4S.
