Technology is pushing the boundaries of healthcare, enabling innovations and discoveries at a pace we‘ve never seen before.

I am so impressed with the high school students in Singapore’s Swift Accelerator Program. They’ve been busy learning to code with @Tinkercademy teachers, and already have everything from AR to productivity apps live on the @AppStore! Nice work! #EveryoneCanCode pic.twitter.com/41LDv9eh1f — Tim Cook (@tim_cook) December 11, 2019
When you bring everything you are to everything you do, it’s amazing what’s possible. Paralympian @theresagoh_ is a force inside and outside the pool. Loved seeing how you use Apple Watch to take your training to the next level! 🏊♀️⌚️ pic.twitter.com/M9NtS0mRuw — Tim Cook (@tim_cook) December 12, 2019

I agree that someone else should take up product stewardship because it's clear Apple’s product design language, cadence and innovation have languished since 2011. Tim just doesn't care about product.
Is Jeff Williams the right person though?
An amazing place with amazing people.
Tim Cook is probably the best operational guy in the world.
He is extremely focused on internal process, particularly in the supply chain.

or a 10k Mac Pro that you cannot upgrade the internal SSD?
