Tim Cook Visits Germany and France, Confirms Interest in Rolling Out Apple Card Internationally

Apple CEO Tim Cook has traveled to Germany this week to visit local Apple employees and App Store developers, and he even took a moment to celebrate the annual Oktoberfest beer festival in Munich.


Cook has so far met with Algoriddim, makers of the popular DJ and mixing app djay, as well as one of Apple's design teams. Continuing his tour, he later met with developers of the Blinkist reading app in Berlin.

In an interview with German publication Bild, Cook said iPhone 11 sales are off to a "very strong start" and he also confirmed interest in offering the Apple Card anywhere possible, including Germany, although this will take time due to various regulations in countries around the world.

On Tuesday, Cook made various stops in France.

Cook routinely travels to countries around the world for meet and greets, having visited Canada, China, France, Ireland, Italy, the United Kingdom, and many other countries during his eight-year tenure as Apple CEO.

Rumor has it that after the photo op Tim had exclusive access to the secret underground Beerfest and took part in the Das Boot challenge.

I know nothing about financial markets or regulatory stuff, but I think Goldman Sachs have a banking licence here in the U.K (they have an online/app driven savings account), so would it really be that hard to launch the Apple Card here?
