Apple celebrates MLK day with full page dedication

Published

Apple commemorates US federal holiday Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. day with a full-page tribute to the civil rights leader.

Apple Celebrates MLK Day

On its official Apple.com website is a photo and a quote of King in black and white, with the words ‘I believe that we can transform dark yesterdays of injustice into bright tomorrows of justice and humanity’. Apple adds its own statement, ‘today and every day, we honor his life and legacy of service’.

Tim Cook, Apple CEO also went on to social media platform Twitter to honor MLK. He says that Dr. King could ‘paint a powerful vision in dark times’ and how his words could inspire the nation to heal its wounds and protect the civil rights of people who call the country their home.

It’s expected that Apple will maintain its MLK tribute for a few days, and this will replace the usual product and service offerings found on the Apple.com main homepage.
