“I visited Apple for the announcement of the iPhone 4S [at Apple headquarters in Cupertino, California]. When I was having a meeting with Tim Cook, he said, 'Oh Masa, sorry I have to quit our meeting.' I said, 'Where are you going?' He said, 'My boss is calling me.' That was the day of the announcement of the iPhone 4S. He said that Steve is calling me because he wants to talk about their next product. And the next day, he died,” recalls Son.

Son then applauded Jobs’s entrepreneurship and the passion he had for Apple. According to Son, Jobs very ill at that time, but he willed himself to live a bit more longer to see Apple launch a new product before his death.
