Apple CEO Tim Cook at MIT Commencement
Apple CEO Tim Cook addressed more than 1,800 new MIT graduates on Friday, June 9, and shared a message of humanity deeply connected to his Apple experience.
Speaking at the 2017 MIT Commencement, Cook described his relationship with Steve Jobs, the late co-founder of Apple; described a meeting with Pope Francis; and called on the new graduates to focus the exciting power of technology on improving the world.
