Tim Cook Hits the Road to Visit Testing Equipment Manufacturer CTS in Cincinnati [Updated]

Apple CEO Tim Cook is on the road in the weeks ahead of the iPhone 8 reveal, expected sometime in early-to-mid September. In a tweet posted this morning, Cook shared a visit he made in Cincinnati to CTS (Cincinnati Test Systems), where he met and discussed with the teams who build leak detection equipment for Apple.

CTS builds leak detection hardware for a variety of industries, including automotive and medical, collecting data that provides pressure decay, vacuum decay, mass flow, helium leak, and other leak detection resources for its customers. The company likely does the same for Apple and its suppliers, providing quality assurance for Apple during the manufacturing stages of its devices.



It's unclear at this time where Cook might be heading next, or how his travels might be tied into the reveal of the iPhone 8, iPhone 7s, and iPhone 7s Plus next month. We're expecting event invites to go out very soon, especially if Apple decides to hold the reveal within the first week of September.

In a report yesterday that sourced French telephone carriers, Mac4Ever said that the event would be held in the second week of the month, on September 12, and the iPhone 8 would then launch on September 22, but the official dates are still unconfirmed.

Update: Tim Cook will also visit Des Moines today, where he will attend a meeting focused on Apple's just-announced data center in Waukee, Iowa.

If CTS is so good at finding leaks, maybe they should have taken a look at the HomePod firmware before Apple released it... ;):D

Since you were there in person, apparently, can you share some pics? Perhaps some video with all of Tim's "nonsensical rhetorics and fake laughter"?

"Is that a massive iPhone in your pocket or are you just happy to see us??" Someone had to say it.

I was thinking it looks a little narrower than the 7 Plus.

Orrrrrrrrr..... (quite a bit more likely), YOU personally don’t like Tim, due to his sexuality or his propensity to defend social justice, so you make up the story from the article photo that everyone is sad or bored, because they all feel that Tim is disingenuous.
Lol, I’m sure at the factory you work at... during corporate walkthroughs you stand on the sideline literally overjoyed & excited- you should share some of those pictures!!

Yeah, because we are all familiar and excited about his amazing no-******** approach, stunning and meaningful speeches and the best down to earth charisma ever made.


His MIT commencement was quite good.

I don’t think being charismatic or not tracks with being full of BS; not sure what connection you’re trying to make- but it’s definitely a stretch.

It looks like he’s talking and everyone is listening in a huddle formation. Not really sad.

What an odd supplier to make an appearance at. It's like the McDonalds CEO appearing at a factory that makes smoke detectors.

Would an ugly red hat make him better at it?
