iPhone 4S – 4Steve

Steve Jobs the co-founder and former chief executive of Apple has died at the age of 56.

As most people seen this coming, Steve Jobs got diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2003, and after three periods of sickness leave, resigned as Apple CEO in August 2011. This unfortunately ended his life. How will Apple cope now?

It has been reported that the new iPhone 4S was named for Steve Jobs himself. The 4 (for) and S (Steve). was this coincidence? Or did they see it coming? Is it some kind of plan to drive more sales in the memory of Steve jobs?

Steve Jobs Dead Apple

Can Apple cope without this genius? I think if anything the sales will go up and up in the next year never mind the death or not. Apple are the biggest major leading technology companies in the world and I can’t see them failing.

Some random facts about Steve Jobs

  1. For real? That makes perfect sense. Maybe Apple did name the iphone 4S after Steve Jobs! 4Steve has been trending on twitter the last 2 days. Keep up the grest work!

    • Thanks Liam! When I heard that Steve jobs passed away the first thing that came into my head was that the new iPhone was named 4S and was it coincidence that it stood for ‘4Steve’? Check out the petition for apple to officially rename it here.
