Apple kicked off its big iPhone event with a touching tribute to Steve Jobs: 'We can now reflect on him with joy, instead of sadness'
So it's fitting that the event kicked off with a monologue from the late Apple cofounder; a speech explaining that making things with "a great deal of care and love" is a contribution to humanity, and the thing that "keeps Apple, Apple."
Taking the stage at the conclusion of the monologue, Apple CEO Tim Cook said, "it was only fitting that Steve should open his theater."
"It's taken some time, but we can now reflect on him with joy, instead of sadness," Cook said. "Steve's vision lives on at Apple Park and everywhere at Apple. Today and always, we honor him."
It's a fitting tribute, as well: 2017 marks the 10-year anniversary of the iPhone. And the original iPhone unveiling, back in 2007, was arguably Jobs' single most iconic moment at the company he cofounded. Still, Jobs' legacy is about more than just the iPhone, Cook said.
"His greatest gift ... was not a singular product, but rather Apple itself," Cook said.
