Tim Cook Visits Apple's New Austin Campus, Says 'Exciting' Products Coming




Apple CEO Tim Cook visited Apple's brand new campus in Austin, Texas today at its opening celebration, according to various Apple employees. Cook recapped the announcements Apple made at WWDC earlier this week and teased that "exciting" new products are on the way, reports 9to5Mac.

Apple SVP of Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue was also in attendance, commenting about Beats Music and Beats Electronics. Cook also reportedly talked about new hires, mentioning how new retail head Angela Ahrendts was the best person for the job.

Many Apple employees took to Twitter and Instagram to share Cook's visit to the campus, which is similar in style to the current Cupertino headquarters and complete with advanced facilities for Apple support, engineering and operations. Only part of the first phase of construction has been completed, with the complete first phase expected to finish by the end of 2015 and the entire project to be completed by 2021.

Also wondering this. Always thought that the Austin campus was just for customer support.

1. Manufacture Mac Pros.
2. Provide corporate support to Latin America, New Zealand, and Australia.

That's just the ones I know.

Wearing Burberry? Let's face it, after the Browett fiasco (where he was making the same noises about the best person being hired), Angela's arrival is a bloody godsend.

He'll probably say "magical" when they are announced.

Do you expect him to say that Apple will only be releasing incredibly boring products from now on?

No, but he could well say nothing at all. Apple these days, though still frustratingly ambiguous, seem to be a little happier when hinting about products yet to be released.

Texas Governor Perry has given major tax breaks to corporations, effectively luring some tech companies in Silicon Valley like Apple to either relocate or expand facilities there. On the non-tech side, Toyota is building a new headquarters in Austin.
