Whatever happened to Apple?

So Steve Jobs is gone and what happened to Apple?
I haven’t seen anything new come out of Apple in a couple years…I think the last “big” thing was a color case for the iPhone 5?
Can one person have that much influence over an entire organization? Was Steve Jobs the innovative wiz behind Apple or did he simply bring out the innovative in everyone else?
This is a great lesson for those who aspire to lead and who wish to leave a legacy. How do you build the skills in people to do what is needed? When you leave–and we all leave eventually, what will you leave behind?
When I look at Google today, with Google Glasses and their Autonomous Vehicle, I can definitely see who is leading the pack with innovation. I guess Simon Sinek was right about Apple and Steve Jobs…he was the Why for Apple.
Without him, they only know the How and the What.
