Tim Cook visits Singapore accelerator and Apple Store

Asia Tour: Tim Cook visits Singapore accelerator and Apple Store

Earlier this week, we commented that the Apple CEO, Tim Cook, was paying a visit to developers and Apple stores on Japan, which provided some very nice meetings.

Now, the executive decided to enjoy the trip to East Asia and made another stop: in Singapore. As in Japan, Cook met with developers, artists, athletes and company employees at several locations, including Apple Orchard Road – the first Apple store in the country.

Cook arrived in Singapore on Tuesday (10/12) and, as last week, posted the best moments on Twitter, check out:

Hello Singapore! We thank iPhone photographers Darren Soh (IG: darrensohphoto) and Aik Beng Chia (IG: aikbengchia) for sharing their love for Tiong Bahru’s rich heritage – and for the amazing food! ??

If we can see a greener future, we can make it real. It’s wonderful to be part of @MeshMinds’s #TodayAtApple session on Apple Orchard Road to see how children are harnessing the power of ARKit to keep our oceans clean. ?

Earlier this year, Apple expanded its education and programming programs in Singapore, and to assess student development, Cook visited one of the company’s accelerators in the country, focused on the Swift language.

I am very impressed with high school students in the Swift Accelerator Program in Singapore. They’ve been busy learning to program with @Tinkercademy teachers, and they already have everything from AR apps to productivity apps distributed on @AppStore! Good job! #EveryoneCanCode

Three of our incredible @AppleArcade launch titles were created here in Singapore’s PIXEL space. It was great to meet the @TheGentlebros, @battlebrewpro and Tendays Studio teams. Your creativity and passion have captivated so many game fans around the world! ???

When you bring everything you are to everything you do, it’s incredible what is possible. Paralympic athlete @theresagoh_ is a force in and out of the pool. I loved seeing how you use your Apple Watch to elevate your training! ?‍♀️⌚️

I just heard a preview of @sezairi’s new track, She Moves – you’ll love it! Thanks to @jonchuajx for showing me Zendyll Productions and for giving @AppleMusic artists the space to create the music that inspires, motivates and excites us. ?

40 years old, 3,200 people and countless great ideas. From Engineering and Operations, to Retail and AppleCare – our growing team in Singapore empowers much of what we do around the world. Great to be with you today! ??

@SingaporeAir transformed the flight deck with the iPad! I thank CEO Goh Choon Phong and Captain Raj for showing me how iPadOS helps pilots to focus on what matters – safety. I’ll be back soon, Singapore! ? ✈️

As you can see in the tweet above, Cook left Singapore today. We will continue to follow this executive tour to find out (and where) his next stop will be.
