Apple Chooses Karsh for Nelson Mandela Obituary

Nelson Mandela by Yousuf Karsh on Apple Home Page

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.”
