Will replace Apple Tim Cook
Tim Cook: "Probably" not at the top in ten years
Tim Cook is now 60 - four years older than his predecessor Steve Jobs when he died in October 2011. The question of how long the Apple boss will remain at the top of the group seems justified. In an interview with tech journalist Kara Swisher, Cook has now elicited details for the first time.
When asked directly whether he would still be with Apple in a decade, Cook replied that he would "probably" no longer lead the company, although that date was "not yet in sight". He didn't say who could take the job. But he feels "great".
Who will take over after Cook?
In fact, a number of important Apple managers had recently left the company or moved to other posts. Marketing director Phil Schiller is actually retired, but still takes care of the App Store. Ex hardware boss Dan Riccio should take care of augmented reality glasses and Co. Former head of design Jony Ive, without whom Apple couldn't work for a long time, has long since left the house. Which new generation of Cook & Co. could replace is in the stars.
In the interview, Cook also mentioned his admiration for Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk. He also values the e-car builder very much. "Tesla did an amazing job," said Cook. Tesla is the market leader and will hold this place "for a long time". Amazingly, however, Cook never claims to have spoken to Musk - although Apple is said to have once been interested in Tesla.
Facebook criticism shocked Cook
Cook also spoke to Swisher about the criticism of the Tracking Transparency app in iOS 14.5, which came from Facebook, among others. She "shocked" him, because privacy is at stake here and its protection is beyond question. When it comes to the App Store, Cook remains tough: he considers sideloading via alternative software sources for the iPhone to be problematic in terms of security.
Cook also commented once more on augmented reality. The area is "extremely critical" for Apple's future. "It would be great if we could expand our discussion here with content," said Cook, who did not allow himself to be pinned to the fact that Apple is working on AR glasses. (bsc)Comment on the post
