He even took the interview with Stern, a German news website.German (language) )
During this period, the two sides discussed the App Store, antitrust litigation, the progress of the Supreme Court of the United States and so on.
According to the message translated by Google, Cook said, "no rational person would call apple a monopolist."
Because the App provided through App Store is not a restriction, but an advantage, after all, Apple's policy can protect customers from malicious applications and illegal content.

In other words, Apple just didn't take the initiative to provide what it thought was not necessary, but it didn't completely block the channels.

Comparing App Store with a supermarket, it includes about 30~40 official applications, but there are more than 2 million applications in the store.
Supermarkets are highly likely to offer freely branded goods, but this is a good thing for consumers. Who would hate to have more options on the shelves?
As for the pricing of iPhone, it means that the company has been trying to keep it at the lowest possible level:
Fortunately, we have been able to lower the price of iPhone this year, with entry-level iPhone 11 models selling for as low as $699 (BOC starts at 5499 RMB).)
Finally, they talked about Apple TV.When asked if the competition for Netflix had affected the subscription price of Apple TV ($4.99 per month in the United States)Cook replied,
Apple doesn't care about competitors' competitive challenges, whether or not Netflix wins, many users are using multiple services, and the Apple TV is just trying to be one of them.
It is reported that after meeting with Blinkest, Cook will go to France next to visit students and professors of Yubi and Pastegames, as well as Polytech Montpellier.
During the trip, Cook also arranged for himself to visit several direct stores, including Kurf ü rstendamm in Berlin, (Odysseum), at the Odyssey Pavilion and Apple Store. On the Champs- É lys é es.
