    Like his last work for the iPhone roadmap?

    or the iPhone 7?
    I heard he had like a 5 year plan before he died
    so maybe 2016 model was his final work
    I am very excited for 2014
    I believe that will be the most exciting iPhone ever
    If steve knew he was very very close to dying I am sure that he had a plan for his last iPhone vision. Saving the best for last. Who knows what he thought about for that iPhone.

    Every few weeks, somebody else comes along with talk about Steve Jobs and his master plan, thoughts, etc.

    Of course he had some thoughts or ideas.
    And, of course, a few thousand people have been working on those ideas and many others. Some might still exist, some debunked, some tweaked.

    Geez.... Steve Jobs is wonderful, but not a God with a 5 year plan for every little detail.

    Even if he did have a 5 year plan, I seriously doubt most of it will be relevant anymore as not even he could predict the future (present) smartphone market and what competitors would have out now.

    According to several reports, Steve left ~6 years worth of product pipeline for Apple.

    Given how much he changed his mind about things, I don't really care whether Apple does or doesn't have 5 years worth of his ideas in the pipeline.

    The Jobs era is over, and his ideas may no longer even be relevant as competition changes and new technologies emerge.

    5 years is a long time to live on the ideas of a man who is no longer alive.

    Spot on. I'm honestly surprised it's take this long for Apple to start to drift away from Jobs' style, but they could never hope to maintain it anyway.

    yes, and next year it will be that he also influenced iphone 8 and 9, and so on and so on...
