As anticipated in recent days, Apple CEO Tim Cook spoke to Fox News Sunday for an interview with host Chris Wallace.
During the interview, Tim Cook he justified Apple’s decision to remove the far-right app Speak from the App Store for content that incited violence. Cook confirmed that the app will be able to return to the store when it activates an adequate moderation system:
We looked at the incitement to violence that was there and we don’t think that freedom of speech and incitement to violence have anything in common. They will be able to return to the App Store if they apply enough moderation tools.
Apple’s CEO then spoke about the initiatives for fairness and racial justice presented a few days ago by the company:
The topic of this initiative is about giving communities of color the right opportunities, and we couldn’t be more excited about its potential. Last year, George Floyd’s murder put off all this more urgent and so we’re happy to be able to do our part.
We want to make the Propel Center an innovation hub that serves all HBCUs, but also becomes a source of information and inspiration for the entire community.
Tim Cook also talked about what he witnessed growing up in Alabama and how that period affected today’s choices and REJI projects:
I remember a time, Chris, when, whether you were in high school or college or beyond, you looked around and there were only white people around, whether it was in college or university or graduate school. or something like that. It didn’t feel right. And so you wonder, why did this happen? And I think it’s all related to the absence of opportunities. It goes back to that. And so what we’re trying to do with this program is give people the opportunities.
Wallace also asked Cook what it was like to take over from Steve Jobs in 2011 and what he is “most proud of” in the last ten years:
My focus then was on grief, it was on grief and on running the company through a very, very difficult period of time. And so I couldn’t think of how daunting it was.
I am proud that we have kept his DNA as the heart of the company. And that the company has remained focused on innovation and making truly exceptional products that empower people and enrich their lives.
I love every day I spend here. It’s a lifetime privilege to work with the people I work with. It is difficult for me to imagine my life without Apple. What’s the future of Apple? We will continue to make the best products in the world. Not the best, but the best.
Finally, Wallace tried asking something about Apple Car. Tim Cook avoided giving an answer, limiting himself to saying that he could not comment on rumors and rumors, but at that point the conductor pressed: “Well, you can. You can choose not to, but you are certainly a boss and if you want you cani”. E Cook: “You are right. I choose not to. Touchè “.
Looking ahead, Cook said Apple wants to use its platform to “help solve some of the country’s biggest problems“, But without going into this sentence. “We’ve always seen the company as a more important role than just earning money, but it actually makes a difference too“, has explained. “And that’s what drives me and gets me up in the morning and keeps me coming to work“.News
