CUPERTINO, Calif., Oct. 7 (UPI) -- Apple founder Steve Jobs apparently left behind plans for new versions of the gizmos that put the U.S. company on the cusp of technology, insiders say.

Jobs, who died Wednesday at the age of 56, reportedly told colleagues there were at least four years' worth of ideas, including blueprints to develop new iterations of the iPod, iPhone, iPad, iCloud and MacBook, The Daily Telegraph reported Friday.

Industry insiders also intimated Jobs had begun development of an Apple television.

Jobs, who publicly battled pancreatic cancer and received a liver transplant in 2009, stepped down as Apple's chief executive in August.

Interbrand, the world's largest brand consultancy, told the Telegraph the value of the Apple brand, estimated recently at $33.5 billion, could rise by as much as $670 million because of the publicity and impulse buying sparked by Jobs' death.
