Stephen Colbert has already hosted Elon Musk and presidential candidate Jeb Bush on the Late Show since taking over earlier this month, but for Apple fans last night was likely the most exciting episode yet. In a 10-minute interview, CEO Tim Cook touched on Apple Car rumors, the iPhones 6s, Steve Jobs’ legacy and more.
After running through a few of the iPhone 6s’ newer features, Colbert hit Cook with a question about the company’s rumored self-driving car. Unsurprisingly, Apple’s CEO offered a pretty standard nonresponse. “We look at a number of things along the way and we decide to put our energy into a few of them,” he said.
Moving on to more personal issues, Cook reflected on the time he spent working with Steve Jobs along with the recent flurry of biopics, which have been pretty critical of Apple’s co-founder.
I haven’t seen them, but the Steve I knew was an amazing human being. He’s someone that you wanted to do your best work for. He invented things that I think other people could not. He solved things other people could not. He had this uncanny ability to see around the corner and to describe the future. He was a joy to work with and I love him and I miss him every day. I think a lot of people are trying to be opportunistic and I hate this. It’s not a great part of our world.
You can watch the full interview below in a video uploaded by 9to5Mac, though the audio isn’t great and we’re guessing it won’t last very long once CBS finds out.
