Apple CEO Tim Cook
Tim Cook sends his first email to his troops

The tech world may have been in a state of shock after the news yesterday of Steve Jobs' resignation as Apple, Inc. CEO (even though we knew that this "changing of the guard" would eventually happen), but his successor is already looking to set the tone for the company.

In an internal Apple email obtained by Ars Technica, new CEO Tim Cook addresses his employees, explaining how Steve Jobs has been the leading visionary at Apple and how he plans to keep things as close to "normal" as possible during his tenure. 

Team: 

I am looking forward to the amazing opportunity of serving as CEO of the most innovative company in the world. Joining Apple was the best decision I've ever made and it's been the privilege of a lifetime to work for Apple and Steve for over 13 years. I share Steve's optimism for Apple's bright future.

Steve has been an incredible leader and mentor to me, as well as to the entire executive team and our amazing employees. We are really looking forward to Steve's ongoing guidance and inspiration as our Chairman.

I want you to be confident that Apple is not going to change. I cherish and celebrate Apple's unique principles and values. Steve built a company and culture that is unlike any other in the world and we are going to stay true to that-it is in our DNA. We are going to continue to make the best products in the world that delight our customers and make our employees incredibly proud of what they do. 

I love Apple and I am looking forward to diving into my new role. All of the incredible support from the Board, the executive team and many of you has been inspiring. I am confident our best years lie ahead of us and that together we will continue to make Apple the magical place that it is. 

Tim
