The company has replaced their home page with a short tribute video to the co-founder of the company. The video features black and white images and notable quotes from Jobs who passed away last year after a long fight with pancreatic cancer.

The 1-minute, 45-second video consists of black-and-white still images, as well as quotes from Jobs, who died on October 5, 2011 after a lengthy battle with pancreatic cancer.

Current CEO Tim Cook added a letter to the video:

Steve's passing one year ago today was a sad and difficult time for all of us. I hope that today everyone will reflect on his extraordinary life and the many ways he made the world a better place.

One of the greatest gifts Steve gave to the world is Apple. No company has ever inspired such creativity or set such high standards for itself. Our values originated from Steve and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple. We share the same privilege and responsibility of carrying his legacy into the future.

I'm incredibly proud of the work we are doing, delivering products that our customers love and dreaming up new ones that will delight them down the road.

It's a wonderful tribute to Steve's memory and everything he stood for.
