This only means one thing... I am speechless for the first time in a long time. Too sad for tears... if that makes sense.

Short sell fever on Apple stock!

Honestly, I'm surprised it didn't happen sooner. If you create at least one major industry shift in your career it is great. Thus guy carved a whole new river that will be traveled on for generations.

This. The stock will recover, but his health is more important.

Wow.

They have done a good job getting prepared for this. I don't think it will adversely affect the company.

I wonder if this means his health is getting much worse. Maybe he figured it'd be better to implement succession while he is alive (with the perception of it being organized and collected) than shock the world and the markets if he were to die while holding the position.

I hope that he is fine though and that even as Chairman of the Board only he will still lay out his visions and help make sure that products are designed and built to high quality standards we all know and love.

What's going to happen to Apple? Does this mean no more iPhones or iPads?

It's not like he's completely gone. He's pulling a "Bill Gates".
