Apple says Steve Jobs emails were fake

Missives regarding iPhone 4 debunked by Cupertino

Latest messages weren't written by Steve Jobs according to PR team.

Steve Jobs’ love of a cheeky email has led to a growth industry of fake messages from Apple’s erstwhile leader zipping around the web. But the latest lot to emerge have been called out by Apple’s own PR team, a first when it comes to Jobs’ emails.

The missives, first reported on BGR, saw Steve Jobs apparently tell an irate iPhone 4 owner he was “getting all worked up” and that Apple was working on a fix for the phone’s antenna problems.

An Apple spokesman has since categorically denied that Steve Jobs wrote the series of emails. Previously, Infinite Loop has left it to others to work out the veracity of the messages, happy to let Jobs take some of the limelight.
