In an interview with CNBC earlier on Tuesday, Cook said there have not been any discussions to settle a licensing dispute between the companies since the "third calendar quarter of previous year".
Cook came to the defense of his company a week after Apple warned investors that its fiscal first-quarter (fourth calendar quarter) revenue would be weaker than previously expected. "The world needs a strong US and China economy for the world economy to be strong", Cook said.
Cook's comments also came as Qualcomm is in the midst of an antitrust trial with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission over numerous same patent licensing practices Apple has criticized. I don't want to tell you about what they are'. But they're things that we feel really great about, that we've been working on for multiple years.
"But I do think, looking back, in the future, you will answer that question, Apple's most-important contribution to mankind has been in health".
Cook seems to be most enthusiastic about Apple's health-related efforts, which have gotten far more serious with last year's launch of ECG and irregular heart rhythm notifications features for the Apple Watch. "We are taking what has been with the institutions and empowering the individual to manage their health". Munster said if the promotion were to end, Cook would have "avoided the topic" in the interview. In 2017, Cook received $12.8 million, while in 2016 he made $8.7 million. Cook says he's "heard this over and over again" and isn't anxious.
The Apple filing also had information on its achievements in 2018, such as reaching 100 per cent renewable energy in its global facilities, shipping the two billionth iOS device, launching the "Everyone Can Create" curriculum and more.
