Apple CEO Tim Cook gave an interview to American journalist Kara Swisher and made statements about his plans to lead the company. Saying that he could leave as CEO in the next 10 years, Cook noted that it was a long time and refused to specify the exact date of his departure.
“Another 10 years? Probably not. But now I can say that I feel good and I cannot give an exact date yet. But 10 years is a long time, and my future leadership probably won’t take more than 10 years. ” said.
