Apple Makes 'Celebrating Steve' Tribute Video Available on YouTube

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.

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 ?

Don't celebrate Steve, instead keep his legacy alive by making great products keeping your users in mind, not your shareholders.

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.
