  • Tim Cook: Upcoming Privacy Regulation 'Inevitable'

One: I think their [Google's] search engine is the best and that's very important.

Cheddar talked to Ina Fried, Chief Technology Correspondent at Axios, about what's next for the tech giant. Facebook has been fielding concerns about how well it protects user data and defends against malicious use aimed at swaying elections. What we've tried to do is come up with ways to help our users through their day.

Cook did call the way Apple relies on Google as "not a ideal thing".

According to the Financial Times, it was reported that "A Definers' affiliate called NTK Network posted dozens of articles blasting Apple and Google for "unsavoury business practices", including calling Mr Cook hypocritical for criticising Facebook over privacy".

In the same interview, Cook said privacy is a "core value" for Apple.

The Apple CEO seemed to not like government regulation when it comes to user privacy but rather believes in a 'free market'.

Tim Cook, Apple CEO said, "I'm a big believer in the free market". We have private web browsing, we have intelligent tracker prevention. But Silicon Valley needs to get with the program, he said. In addition to talking gender diversity, Cook also discussed his daily routine, concerns about the mental impact of Apple devices on users, and privacy regulation.

However, Cook added, "I'm actually encouraged at this point that there will be a more marked improvement over time".

When it came to AR, Cook said that "technology should amplify human performance and human experience, and AR arguably does an unbelievable job at that, and I think it's going to change everything".

Asked how Apple could accept billions of dollars from Google to make the latter's search engine the default across iOS and macOS versions of the Safari browser, Cook suggested that Apple's own privacy protections mitigated the potential threats. Let us know in the comments. Cook previously said in an interview that the feature had even surprised him with regards to how long he spent doing certain activities on his phone.
