Cook was named among other government officials, athletes, artists and businesspeople recently, and the Apple CEO discussed several subjects in a follow-up discussion. He went on to say that he learned that as Apple CEO he had ‘more to learn’.

In terms of Apple’s environmental projects and stakeholder capitalism, Cook mentioned how goals have changed and ‘gotten bolder’ over the years, and how they cared about workers and the environment. To this end Cook stated that it’s important for Apple to be involved in the conversation and nothing to do with image and whatnot.

In the latter part, Cook said how he’s excited to be working with AI and AR, with potential of having an overlay with the real world without distracting from physical relationships.
