Chief Executive Steve Jobs is back at work following a near 6-month medical leave, though he will work at least initially from home for a few days a week, the company said on Monday.
The official word of his return followed months of speculation about the health of Jobs, a pancreatic cancer survivor, and his future with the company he co-founded more than 30 years ago.
Jobs, 54, underwent a liver transplant in Memphis, Tennessee, while on leave. He has remained involved in strategic decisions at Apple while away, according to the company, and he has been seen in recent weeks at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California.
“Steve is back to work,” a company spokesman said. “He’s currently at Apple a few days a week, and working from home the remaining days. We are very glad to have him back.”
