Apple has issued a media advisory statement today from Steve Jobs which says he is taking a medical leave of absence to focus on his health. Hereâ€™s the full wording of Jobsâ€™ letter.
Many expected Jobs to be at the recent launch of the Verizon iPhone, so this announcement might explain why he was absent. In the past Jobs has suffered from pancreatic cancer, and had a liver transplant in 2009 during a six-month leave of absence. According to a report in the New York Times quoted by MacRumors, Jobs has been experiencing â€œups and downsâ€ of the type associated with immune system problems caused by liver transplants.
