Steve Jobs Reportedly Returning to Apple This Month

June 5, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Apple Inc. Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs is reportedly ready to return since taking a five-month leave of absence (in January) after discovering that his health problems are “more complex” than he thought . Jobs, 53, originally said he would remain CEO while taking a medical leave of absence until the end of June.  Speculation is Jobs will make his reappearance in dramatic fashion at Apple’s annual software developers’ conference next week in San Francisco, possibly to unveil a new iPhone.

Jobs, who co-founded Apple in 1976, returned as CEO in 1997 and has revived the Macintosh computer brand while pushing the company into new markets with the iPod media player and iPhone. Apple’s unwillingness to provide details on Jobs’s health has frustrated investors, as the company didn’t give any details about Jobs’s health even as he appeared increasingly thin in 2008, saying only it was a private matter. Jobs said at the time, he had been diagnosed with a hormone imbalance which caused him to lose weight. Jobs had a procedure, which involves removing parts of the pancreas, bile duct and small intestine, after he was diagnosed with a rare type of pancreatic cancer in 2004.
