Apple's top dog, Tim Cook, swapped ones and zeros for a chat with chart-topping pop star Dua Lipa. Forget rhythm and beats; it was all about Apple's future.

Cook’s Staying in the Kitchen

Tim Cook, the brain behind tech giant Apple's operation since 2011, spilled the silicon beans and his plans for the future on pop singer Dua Lipa’s podcast Dua Lipa: At Your Service. "I don't know how long I'll be there," he said. "I love it there, and I can't envision my life without being there. So, I'll be there a while." OK, not exactly a mic drop, but still. Apple will be in safe hands for a while.

Apple’s No One Man Band

As Cook navigates the tech industry, he's not pressing pause anytime soon. While relishing his role as Apple's big cheese, he assured the audience that it's not a one-man show. "My job is to prepare several people for the ability to succeed, and I really want the person to come from within Apple, the next CEO," Cook said. OK, so plans are afoot.

Cook joined Apple in 1998 and rose to become the first CEO of the post-Steve Jobs' era in 2011. Forbes nods to his financial prowess, claiming he has a net worth of $1.9 billion.

Moving on from Cook's own future, the interview went on to cover artificial intelligence (AI ), the ever-evolving tech landscape and Apple's response to climate change.
