Apple CEO Tim Cook participated in an interview with CBS this morning and talked about the incident in the US Capitol last Wednesday.
It’s worth noting that Gayle King, the host of CBS’ This Morning, also ridiculed that there will be more interviews tomorrow because Apple is expected to announce a “major announcement” to some extent, but This is not a “product”.
Cook said that he believes that it is “key” that people be held accountable for what happened in the U.S. Capitol last week:
“I think the key is to hold people accountable. This is not something that should be skating. This is something we must seriously consider and understand, and then we need to move forward.”;
When asked if Trump is responsible for the violence, the Apple CEO said that he believes that no one can go beyond the law:
“I think no one can transcend the law. That is a big event for our country. We are a country under the rule of law. I think everyone involved in it must take responsibility. I don’t think we should let go. I think people are held accountable. Is very important.”
King said that CBS this morning will conduct a full interview with Tim Cook tomorrow. Jin did not imply what Apple’s “major announcement” might be, but she did clarify that it was not a “new product.”
King added that the interview was originally scheduled to take place before the Capitol last week, and the initial focus should be on the news Apple plans to release on Wednesday. One possibility to announce the news is to introduce Apple’s planned iOS 14 privacy changes.
Apple has stated that it will launch its new App Tracking Transparency feature sometime in early 2021. The AppTracking Transparency feature requires the app to obtain the user’s consent before it can be tracked across other websites and apps. Apple originally hoped to release it with iOS 14 in September, but eventually postponed the feature to give developers more time to prepare.
In addition, this announcement will be made during the annual Consumer Electronics Show.
Apple has become accustomed to emphasizing privacy concerns in the same week as CES. Last year, Apple returned to CES for the first time in decades, participating in a privacy roundtable with Facebook and other companies.
Two years ago, Apple set up a billboard near Las Vegas, saying “what will happen to the iPhone, and the iPhone will stay.”
