Timeline: Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple, has died.

The fortunes of Apple, which briefly became the world’s largest company by stock market value earlier this year have been closely associated with Mr Jobs. Concern over his health has been nearly as big a driver of Apple’s share price as the company’s rapidly rising profits. Apple shares fell 5 per cent in after-hours trading following his resignation as chief executive in August.

In this interactive timeline, the FT looks at key moments over the last 40 years for Mr Jobs and his company.
