- Tim Cook sat down for an interview with CBS ahead of WWDC.
- The CEO talked about what to expect at this year's conference.
- He also talked about social justice and the recent ruling that prevented LGBT discrimination.
In an interview with "60 Minutes" correspondent John Dickerson that aired on CBS, Tim Cook says that "I'm full of secrets and it's hard not to overflow right now. But I've been trained well!"
In the interview, Cook said that there's something for everyone at WWDC. Whether you are a consumer, a developer, or a spectator, the conference is full of interesting moments that show how technology and humanity come together.
When asked about the role the iPhone has played in capturing important social moments, Cook said that Apple is proud to have put a camera in everyone's pocket, saying that it makes it harder for a society to pretend something didn't happen.
Dickerson also asked if Cook talked to Donald Trump about some of the ideological differences they had. Cook said that "of course I do", and that he longs for a day when everyone starts on an equal footing.
When asked about how Apple has dealt with the pandemic, Cook says that the company has viewed it as "a challenge to overcome", and that he "can't wait until we're all back together again."
Cook will take the virtual stage at WWDC later today to announce Apple's latest innovations across all of its software platforms.
