Apple CEO Steve Jobs told employees that he will be taking a leave of absence until June to deal with lingering health issues.

Jobs informed employees of his decision in an e-mail sent Wednesday.

"Unfortunately, the curiosity over my personal health continues to be a distraction not only for me and my family, but everyone else at Apple as well," Jobs told employees. "In addition, during the past week I have learned that my health-related issues are more complex than I originally thought."

Chief operating officer Tim Cook will assume responsibility for Apple's day-to-day operations during Jobs' absence, according to the e-mail. Jobs said he would return in June.

Macworld will have more information as it becomes available.
