致蘋果董事會和蘋果社區:

我總是說﹐如果有一天我無法再履行蘋果首席執行長的職責、滿足大家的期望﹐我會首先讓你們知道。

很遺憾﹐這一天到來了。

在此﹐我辭去蘋果CEO一職。如果董事會認為合適﹐我願意以董事長、董事及雇員的身份繼續為蘋果效力。

關於我的繼任者﹐我強烈建議執行我們的繼任方案﹐任命蒂姆•庫克(Tim Cook)為蘋果CEO。

我相信蘋果會迎來最光輝、最富創新的未來﹐同時我也希望以一個新的角色見證蘋果的成功並為之貢獻一己之力。

我的人生至交有一些就是在蘋果結識的﹐能與大家共事這麼多年﹐我感謝你們。

To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community:

I have 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.

I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee.

As far as my successor goes, I strongly recommend that we execute our succession plan and name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple.

I believe Apple’s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role.

I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you.

新任的CEO Tim Cook上任後在8月25日也發了封email,全文如下:


Team:

I am looking forward to the amazing opportunity of serving as CEO of the most innovative company in the world. Joining Apple was the best decision I've ever made and it's been the privilege of a lifetime to work for Apple and Steve for over 13 years. I share Steve's optimism for Apple's bright future.

Steve has been an incredible leader and mentor to me, as well as to the entire executive team and our amazing employees. We are really looking forward to Steve's ongoing guidance and inspiration as our Chairman.

I want you to be confident that Apple is not going to change. I cherish and celebrate Apple's unique principles and values. Steve built a company and culture that is unlike any other in the world and we are going to stay true to that—it is in our DNA. We are going to continue to make the best products in the world that delight our customers and make our employees incredibly proud of what they do.

I love Apple and I am looking forward to diving into my new role. All of the incredible support from the Board, the executive team and many of you has been inspiring. I am confident our best years lie ahead of us and that together we will continue to make Apple the magical place that it is.

Tim
