Apple issued a statement saying Jobs died Oct. 5. He stepped down as chief executive officer of the Cupertino, Calif.-based company in August after combating a rare form of cancer.
“It’s the loss of a symbol of U.S. entrepreneurship.
‘‘It won’t affect Apple, since he had already retired. His successor needs to keep coming up with innovative products just like Jobs did.”
