  • Tim Cook at Duke

Apple CEO Tim Cook returned to his alma mater, Duke University, as a keynote speaker at the university's commencement ceremony Sunday, where he addressed a spectrum of divisive political issues. The company now has more retail stores in China than in any other country outside of the U.S.

In a meeting at the White House recently Tim Cook criticised Mr Trump's approach on trade with Beijing amid lingering fears of a trade war.

"What I talked about was I talked about trade and the importance of trade and how I felt that two countries trading together make the pie larger".

This comment echoed with this year's Facebook data controversy, which Cook heavily criticized after it was revealed that political data analytics firm Cambridge Analytica was able to breach into the data and information of almost 90 million Facebook users. "Fearless, like the women who say "me too" and 'time's up.' Women who cast light onto dark places and move us to a more just and equal future", Cook continued. The concern for privacy is more than ever and it seems like the companies are experiencing a hard time fending off these attacks. "And no generation has had a chance to change things faster than yours can", said Cook. "We're only one court ruling away from a catastrophic case there".

China remains committed to Iran deal despite United States pullout
Michael Rubin, an Iran expert at the American Enterprise Institute, said the USA invasion of Iraq under George W. And he added, "I don't trust these three countries", Britain, France and Germany. "We're out of the deal.

Many publications are taking this as a swing at Facebook by Cook, who famously said in an interview before that he would never have been in Mark Zuckerberg's shoes. Paid subscribers increased by 2m compared to a month earlier, which maintains the steady monthly growth rate in users for Apple's music streaming service in 2018.

Last month Apple also announced the promotion of Oliver Schusser to lead Apple Music Worldwide.

That's an uptick of 10 million subscribers since April, when Apple Music passed 40 million subscribers. "We will be playing in a way that is consistent with our brand", Cook said.
