Softbank CEO: Steve Jobs Working on Next Apple Product The Day Before His Death
Even in death, the late icon of Apple - Steve Jobs - is living up to his reputation as the hardest working man in technology.
In the weeks the preceded his passing, we all heard reports that Jobs worked full days right up until his August resignation as CEO of the tech giant he co-founded a quarter-century ago. But according to a new revelation from the CEO of Japanese carrier Softbank, Jobs was working tirelessly until practically the moment of his unfortunate passing.
"I visited Apple for the announcement of the iPhone 4S at Apple headquarters in Cupertino, California," Son reveals in new comments that have come to light Wednesday in PC Magazine. "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."
Naturally, there was no elaboration on the nature of the "next product" that Steve Jobs was working on. But in recent days, we've heard more and more about the extent to which Steve Jobs was involved with planning future generation Apple products, including next year's iPhone release. In the wake of these insightful comments from the CEO of Softbank, it now appears even more credible that Steve Jobs' hands-on work will be present in the next iPhone model that reaches consumers.

Obviously Mr. Jobs was working on the next iPhone. You think it took any brain power to upgrade the iPhone 4 to the A5 chip? All those engineers and designers were hard at work prototyping, testing, and re-testing. New materials, shaving off weight, refining the design... Apple puts a lot of work into their phones (despite antennagate). They've probably been working on the iPhone 5 since before the iPhone 4 even hit the market.
