As has become traditional, Apple CEO Tim Cook has posted a tribute to his late friend and Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs. Today marks the fifth anniversary of the death of Jobs, who succumbed to pancreatic cancer on October 5, 2011. He was 56.

In a 2015 commencement address at George Washington University, Cook said Steve Jobs made him question everything he thought was true. Jobs convinced him that “doing good and doing well” were not mutually exclusive.
“I always figured that work was work,” Cook said. “There were things I wanted to change about the world, but I figured that was what I had to do on my own time. Steve didn’t see it that way. He convinced me that if we made great products, we too could change the world.”
Today, to mark the fifth anniversary of Steve’s passing, MacTrast will share various stories we’ve published about Jobs over the years. We hope you’ll enjoy them. Stay tuned to our Twitter feed for the links.
