Steve Jobs funeral will reportedly be held today

A private funeral for Apple co-founder Steve Jobs is being held today, according to a new report. Jobs passed away earlier this week.

The private funeral for Apple co-founder Steve Jobs is taking place today, The Wall Street Journal reports.

The iconic Apple co-founder died on Wednesday at the age of 56.

An Apple representative told the news outlet that no public memorial is planned for Jobs. In announcing the news to employees on Wednesday, Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook said the company would be holding a "celebration" of Jobs' life for the company's employees, allowing them and the public to send in thoughts, memories, and condolences.

Questions around the timing for such a funeral service arose earlier today with Google and Samsung announcing a delay in the unveiling of an upcoming smartphone, saying that next week was "not the right time" for such an announcement.
