SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The man behind Apple's iPhone, iPad and numerous other devices has resigned.
CEO Steve Jobs, who has had health issues, wrote a letter to Apple's board and the "Apple community." The letter says he "always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple's CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come."
Jobs had been on indefinite leave since January with an unspecified medical condition - his third medical leave in several years. He had previously had treatment for pancreatic cancer and received a liver transplant.
