San Francisco: Tech giant Apple mark the one-year anniversary of Steve Jobs' death, with replacing its home page on Friday with a tribute video to its co-founder and a letter from CEO Tim Cook.

The 1-minute, 45-second long video on Apple.com features black-and-white still images and quotes from Jobs.
"Steve's passing one year ago was a sad and difficult time for all of us," Jobs's successor as chief executive, Tim Cook, said in a message on the company website.

"I hope that today everyone will reflect on his extraordinary life and the many ways he made the world a better place,” he added. 

Apple posted a two-minute video with snippets of Jobs and the various products he introduced, from the early Apple computers to the iPhone.

The video also highlights some of the company's greatest inventions, overseen by Jobs, such as the iMac, the iPod, and the iPhone. 

Jobs died October 5, 2011 at the age of 56 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

"One of the greatest gifts Steve gave to the world was Apple," Cook said. "No company has ever inspired such creativity or set such high standards for itself. Our values originated from Steve and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple."

A day earlier Apple announced to launch iPhone 4S.
