    Do you think Tim Cooks personal iphone 6 is some super version of the regular one?

    I mean if I was CEO of some multiple billion dollar company, I would definitely be putting in some crazy CPU and GPU and have like 16gb of ram on my phone. With a 4k display (as pointless as it is.. Whatever I have millions to spend)

    Come to think of it, he probably has an A9X sleeper iPhone 6 phone with iOS 10 on it.

    Anyway.. Just a thought.
    Cya!

    It would have to be registered with the FCC and there are hounds looking for just these things, I believe.

    If I was the CEO of a company that sold smartphones I would for sure be using the exact same product as my customers do so I know any day-to-day annoyances/issues they might encounter and could try to fix them.

    I suspect that his everyday phone is the current stable one.

    This.

    He's going to want to use what they company is selling so he knows where its pain points are, bugs, etc, to help make sure they get addressed immediately.

    No I think he uses an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus like the some of us will come this weekend.

    Tim Cook has the iPhone 8 not the 6.

    He's obviously got the HTC One. Come on it's a better phone!

    When Cook was being interviewed by David Muir for ABC New after the Apple event on the 12th, he stopped David from looking too closely at his :apple:Watch because he said there were "secret" aspects he didn't want seen. I would wager to guess his iPhone also has pre-released elements he would not want seen by the public.

    If his device accesses cellular towers and has the possible capability to disrupt GPS and radio transmitting systems, he sure does have to register it.

    It's obviously not going to be referenced as "Tim Cook's kick ass secret iPhone".

    I'd bet his phone is stock. Possibly different iOS version with custom or not yet released features. I doubt the phone is any different though.

    You mean the One M8? Don't know if it's a better phone, but I played with a friend's, and I liked it. Wouldn't mind it if I used Android more.
