New Jobs Bio Cover Is All Apple With Pub Date of November 21

Walter Isaacson’s new biography of tech legend Steve Jobs certainly looks like an Apple product — at least the simple and elegant cover does, as you can see here:

It is actually an old and well known, if striking, photo of Jobs, which has been much used by Apple over the years.

The new publication date for the much anticipated book from Simon & Schuster has also been moved up to November 21.

“Steve Jobs,” which is 448 pages long and is based on dozens of interviews, including the legendary Apple CEO himself, was originally set for March 12, 2012.

All Things Digital can say for certain this time: The iPhone 5 will launch before the book.
