    OK so Steve Jobs has stepped down as CEO of Apple and Tim Cook is now CEO. So I wonder which one of them is going to intro the iPhone 5 on stage? It could be Steve Jobs to show everyone that he's not gone just around or it could be Tim Cook as a show that although he is now CEO Apple is still the same. So who do you think it will be?

    I say Steve Jobs but really I'm still 50/50 on it. He's been taking a back seat at keynotes and since Tim Cook is the CEO who knows. I still feel like they will want to capitalize on the Steve Jobs phenominon to bolster sales and create buzz.

    Probably Jobs. Remember, he only stepped down as CEO. He retains his position as Chairman of the Board. I could see Cook doing it, but I would lean toward Jobs for the same reasons stated above.

    Since he has resigned I believe that it should be fitting for Steve Jobs to do it one last time IMO.

    Scott Forestall (probably spelled wrong) the head of iOS.

    But I would not be Shocked if Steve came out and did it. Nor if he did, by not doing the keynote it would really signal the change of the guard that he is no longer going to be there for every thing and only major decisions. At this point everything is already decided so showing it off isn't something that would require his presence.

    I voted Steve, but he's a pretty class act, so I won't be surprised if he steps back and fully lets Tim take the reigns to show solidarity with the new CEO. Of course he could also take the stage first then do the official changing of the guard.

    I say Steve. He's still the person people want to see, he is the face of apple. If we had a vote to see not who they thought, but who they wanted to give the keynote I bet Cook wouldn't get any votes...

    I'd imagine it will be Steve, but it would be a great time to introduce new blood into our yearly iPhone release event celebration...

    It would be a real shame if Steve didn't do just this last keynote.

    I agree with you as well. With all of the time that Jobs has invested in the new iPhone, I don't think the keynote would be the same without him up there on the stage running the show.

    As much as I'd like to see Steve on the stage, I really don't think he's going to do it. He is not CEO, he's Chairman of the Board, and the Chairman of the Board does not give the Keynote presentations. At the very least, he might introduce Tim, but I do not think he will announce the iPhone 5. That's not his job anymore. People want to see Steve, yes, but they also want to know that Apple can flourish without him.

    I say Apple goes out and hires Morgan Freeman and he introduces the iPhone 5! Who's with me?

    Seriously, I say Tim Cook. As the CEO and future visionary and chief, it is his proper place. Furthermore, continuing to rely in Jobs' charisma may send the wrong message to investors. Apple needs show the world that Cook can handle the future for Apple.

    I agree, if we could have anyone in the entire world do the keynote, it would definitely want it to be Morgan Freeman lol

    I think it would be completely inappropriate for Steve Jobs to announce the iPhone 5. Tim Cook is the new captain and he needs to show that he is taking charge of the ship.

    But that isn't necessarily true. Tim Cook isn't the only one who makes decision at Apple now. Apple isn't a company that runs like a ship and has a dictator like captain... They have a board and a lot of people high up that make decisions. Also the man that presents the keynote isn't necessarily the leader, if you will. He's just a man involved in development and is a fairly good presenter. Steve Jobs did it and he just so happened to be CEO.
