PSP 175 — This would never happen if Steve Jobs was alive

Eventually Apple has to inevitably change due to the loss of Steve Jobs in 2011. Early on, people overreacted to his death by seeing change in everything Apple did, now a lot of people justify everything Apple currently does or doesn’t do by claiming things would be no different under Steve Jobs. Where does the actual truth lie? Is Apple a different company now than it was in 2011, and if so, how?
