10 Recent Apple Milestones That Would Make Steve Jobs Proud


The iPhone 5

The iPhone 5 launched in September with a display that's longer and thinner than its predecessors. But, part of what has made that new phone so popular (Apple sold more than 5 million of them during the first three days on the market) is that it's not too different from earlier models, touting that same simple design Jobs spent all those years perfecting.

Needless to say, he would likely be happy to see that his style lives on in Apple's newest smartphone.

"That’s been one of my mantras -- focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple," Jobs told BusinessWeek in 1998. "But it's worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains."
