Apple announced a new chairman of the board and director on Tuesday.

Arthur D. Levinson is the new chairman of the board and Robert Iger was tapped as director.

Iger is president and CEO of the Walt Disney Co.

Levinson, who is chairman of Genentech Inc., has been co-lead director on Apple Inc.'s board since 2005. He joined the board in 2000.

Levinson is replacing Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, who died last month after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 56 years old.

The Associated Press contributed to this story.

Disney is the parent company of ABC7.
