Apple CEO Steve Jobs is on track to return from medical leave this month, and there is even speculation that he may be present at the company’s annual software developers’ conference next week at San Francisco, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday, quoting people familiar with the matter.
According to the report, Jobs’s recovery is “coming along” and that he is set to return to work, as planned, sometime this month. Some Apple directors have received weekly updates from Jobs’s doctors, the report states.
Jobs unveiled Apple’s 3G iPhone at this annual event in June last year.
Jobs has played a pivotal role at Apple, leading its foray into digital players like the iPod and the iPhone. This has made his health an issue of concern for investors as well as the company’s customers.
