What was Steve Jobs greatest legacy? Apple CEO Tim Cook told ABC anchor David Muir that one of Jobs’ greatest gifts to mankind was Apple itself.

Cook announced several new innovations from Apple Tuesday morning, including the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, Apple Pay and the Apple Watch. The smart watch’s unveiling was one of the company’s most anticipated releases, with Cook calling the watch “the most personal device we’ve ever created.” Speaking to Muir throughout the day of Apple’s live presentation from Cupertino, Calif., Cook said that while Jobs did not have a hand in creating the watch, the design was inspired by Jobs’ influence at Apple.

“You know we started working on it [Apple Watch] after his passing,” Cook told Muir. “But his DNA, it runs through all of us. And so the foundation that he left you can see in all the things we’re doing today.”

So far, Apple fans have been underwhelmed by the Apple Watch, which will only work in conjunction with the iPhone and won’t be available until 2015.
