To commemorate the 10th anniversary of Steve Jobs passing away on Tuesday, Apple shared a short film called "Celebrating Steve" on its website, and Apple has now made the video available on YouTube for those who may have missed it.


Apple describes the short film as a tribute to Steve Jobs and a celebration of his life and his extraordinary vision. The video includes many photos and short clips of Steve Jobs from throughout his life, ranging from his early days at Apple with fellow co-founder Steve Wozniak in the 1970s to introducing the original iPhone in 2007.

"Steve believed that 'people with passion can change the world for the better,'" said Apple in the video's description. "He challenged us to see the world not for what it was, but for what it could be. And he helped so many of us see the same potential in ourselves."

Steve Jobs passed away October 5, 2011 at the age of 56. Apple's CEO Tim Cook and former design chief Jony Ive are among those who have reflected on his life.

Steve Jobs and Apple were 90 days from bankruptcy. 25 years and $2 trillion later, Apple is the most valuable company in the world. Steve’s legacy has only grown stronger.

Miss you Steve! You may be gone but your legacy will stay in this world forever. Love you Steve. Today, Apple may be 2 trillion dollar company but it is not the same without you.

So many great people like Jon, Phil, Scott have left the company after you left. It is not the same. RIP ?

There were imperfections even during Steve Jobs as CEO but do you think we would get iOS 11, iOS 13, and iOS 15 as how they are if he was still alive today?

Apple's Keynotes without Steve Jobs feel different...

Jobs was a rare bird in the world of executives.

I keep a MBP17, ACD30”, and JBL creature on my workshop desk, and every time I sit down at it, it feels like I’m sitting down at the computer Steve made. …and it’s amazing how versatile, and just how well all that stuff still works a decade later. If there’s any sort of unusual technological *thing* to make work, take it to that desk, and that machine will be able to make it go. Love it.

Its just that Apple hasn't really skated to where the puck was going in the past 10 years much. It has been mostly a reactionary innovations.

Larger screen iPhones
Wearable devices like the Apple Watch
HomePod
Apple Music
Apple TV+
OLED
120 Mhz screens on the iPhone

All of these have been responses, albeit, good responses. But, the idea of redefining a category, I am yet to see that from Apple.

I’m too young to have followed Jobs long. But he is the only “celebrity” I honestly miss. Just his passion and drive.

I will remember the day I read of his passing on my iPad and texted my father on my iPhone. He changed the world without hyperbole.

Apple Watch didn't redefine a category?

Keynote just feels different without SJ. I am a second gen Apple user. My dad has been using Apple since Apple Macintosh first came out in the mid 1980's. Thank you SJ for your vision and for insisting that user experience and simplicity triumph over system specifications. I'm no tech savvy, Apple just make everything easier for the rest of us!
