Steve Jobs (1955-2011) was an American entrepreneur, who co-founded Apple and revolutionized the way we interact with our mobile devices.
He was undoubtedly a tall man, and when we compare his height with his peers it becomes obvious he stood above the average crowd. With that being said, let's investigate Steve's height and find out how tall he really stood during his years here on earth.
Through his modest height claim and also height comparisons, we can see that Steve job's stood around 6'0.5" (184.2 cm) tall in his youth, and he held this height into his 50s. I believe he never dipped below 6 feet, even on the most strenuous of days.
Steve once wrote his height as 6 foot on a government questionnaire. This is the only height claim I have come across. 6 feet tall just sounds good, and this is a nice even number, and it makes sense for him to round down to this height.
Steve also weighed around 160 pounds or 72.5kg, which is in the lower average, but still normal weight range for his height. He wrote this weight on a personal profile form. Later in his life, due to illness, he lost weight, but for the majority of his life, he maintained a trim and well-looked-after figure.
When we compare Steve's height with other well-known figures, it becomes obvious he is taller than many people assume.
In earlier years, if we compare Steve's height with the Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, who is 5'6".5, in one of the many pictures of them together, there's a clear 6-inch difference, and he looks about 6'05" tall.
Let's take another example of Steve and Bill Gates, where in their younger years there are plenty of images of them standing together. Bill is regularly listed as 5'9.75", and in images of them standing together, there's a clear 3-inch different in height, which puts Steve at almost 6'1" tall!
If we look at Steve with other public figures in later years, such as Disney boss Bob Iger who stands at around 6'1" tall, we can see Steve is slightly shorter than him, by around 1 inch. Again, this leads to the opinion that Steve is 6" tall.
This comparison concludes that Steve was close to 6'1" as a youngster, and seems to have held this height into his 50s, without notable loss.
