Apple CEO Jobs returns to work

Apple glad to have CEO Steve Jobs back

Apple CEO Steve Jobs has returned to work on schedule after taking a six-month leave of absence due to medical issues, the company said on Monday.

He will be working at the Apple offices for a few days a week and working from home the remaining days, said Katie Cotton, an Apple spokeswoman, in an e-mail.

"We are very glad to have him back," Cotton said.

Jobs, a survivor of pancreatic cancer, took a leave of absence from Apple in January, citing health issues. At the time he said he was diagnosed with a hormone imbalance that caused him to lose weight.

The health-related issues were "more complex" than he originally thought, Jobs wrote in a memo to Apple employees at the time.

It was later revealed that Jobs received a liver transplant at the Methodist University Hospital Transplant Institute in Memphis, Tennessee. The hospital last week said Jobs was recovering well after the transplant.

Jobs' return should temporarily ease questions in investors' minds surrounding his return to work. Earlier, investors questioned Apple's decision to hold back information surrounding Jobs' medical condition.

Prominent businessman Warren Buffett last week criticized Apple for not releasing what he considered a "material fact" for the company.

In Jobs' absence, Apple's chief operating officer, Tim Cook, took charge of day-to-day operations.
