An article by Business Week details the changes that have occurred in the company since Jobs left his position as CEO.

The report states that the latest iPhone was the last smartphone to get his blessing before entering production.

Citing “two people familiar with the phone’s development,” the site writes that the device was “the last model to receive detailed input from Jobs.”

In addition, insiders say that “the company has yet to release any products Jobs didn’t personally bless.”

This means that Apple’s next iPhone will be the first to be produced and released without Jobs’ supervision.
