An era in Apple is about to come to an end. The long lasting leadership of Steve Jobs, one of the main figures in the history of Apple, is now gone. He would be remembered as the person who took Apple to being the second most valuable world company, with his innovations in technology, with the development of the revolutionary iPhone, with the invention of the first tablet technology ever applied to consumer devices and with driving the company to overtaking its major competitors. No matter whether it is data cleansing services or home delivery, Apple has also delivered the best of services and has gained a lot of consumer satisfaction.
However, Apple’s boss, who is on a medical leave since January 17, would now be replaced by another Apple figure – Tim Cook. He has also participated extensively in the development of the company, delivering many of the most innovative technology solutions. Before stepping up, however, Cook’s company was surprised by a sudden share value drop. The shares of Apple dropped significantly after Steve Jobs declared he is leaving the company. The fall was with almost 7% and this made Apple, for a short period of time, less attractive to investors than major competitors such as Nokia and HTC.
However, confidence among investors was restored after significant trading activity. The news about the excellence in the work of Cook and his team restored the long lasting belief in the Apple’s quality and despite the absence of Steve Jobs, technology experts and financial specialists do not doubt that brighter future is coming for the company.
