According to Apple’s statement on their website:

Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.

According to the statement of Steve Job’s family, he died peacefully surrounded by his family. Below are messages from the current CEO of Apple Tim Cook and founder of Windows, Bill Gates.

From Tim Cook:

Team,

I have some very sad news to share with all of you. Steve passed away earlier today.

From Bill Gates:

I’m truly saddened to learn of Steve Jobs’ death. Melinda and I extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends, and to everyone Steve has touched through his work.

Steve and I first met nearly 30 years ago, and have been colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half our lives.

The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come.

For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it’s been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely.

Steve Jobs will surely be missed by the many. Now that the man behind Apple is gone, it’s up to the new CEO, Tim Cook, to guide and lead Apple to new success.
