As it did for the passing of company cofounder Steve Jobs and a select few other world figures, Apple replaced its home page with a simple homage to Nelson Mandela.
Apple CEO Tim Cook tweeted out a Mandela quote and message, adding his voice to the many world leaders, industry titans and media personalities who extended their condolences through the micro-blogging platform.
“Amazing human being. Champion of freedom and human dignity. He set an example for all of the world. RIP Nelson Mandela. We miss you already.”
