The California Government has dubbed Oct. 16 as Steve Jobs Day, as Apple holds a memorial service for the creator of Apple at the Stanford University on Sunday.

Gov. Jerry Brown tweeted Friday evening, This Sunday will be Steve Jobs Day in the State of California.

Apple has invited some of the biggest names in Silicon Valley to attend the memorial, 11 days after the genius died.

Since his death in Oct.5 and his funeral two days later, the world has mourned over the loss and has cherished his achievements.

According to an Apple spokesperson, the Sunday memorial service will be a private event.

A previous report suggested that Apple had plans to hold an event for the Apple employees to celebrate Steve Jobs' life at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino, Calif., on Oct. 19.

The company's latest product, iPhone 4S, which is the last device developed under the Apple creator, Steve Jobs, hit the stores on Friday and people have shown a lot of enthusiasm over the smartphone to pay tribute to Steve Jobs.

Though the phone came as a disappointment in terms of design, as Apple is expected to come with revolutionary design with its every product, retail stores were exploding with crowd and it has set a new record of one million pre-orders within 24 hours.

 I have been waiting for the iPhone 5 for a long time. But since Jobs died, I wanted to make sure I had a new iPhone with some advantages over the old, said iPhone devotee Mark Du.
