Apple CEO Tim Cook has a message for techies Apple CEO Tim Cook

Every year at WWDC - Apple's annual developers' conference - the company invites students scholars to attend the event. Last week, Apple CEO Tim Cook met one such student and shared an interesting insight. Cook was in Orlando and in an interview with TechCrunch spoke about the importance of coding in school education. What he also said that it's not necessary to have a four-year degree in coding.

The Apple CEO said, "I don't think a four year degree is necessary to be proficient at coding." According to Cook, having a four-year degree is an "old, traditional view." Cook explained that at Apple they had found that "if we can get coding in in the early grades and have a progression of difficulty over the tenure of somebody's high school years" then students are already "writing apps that could be put on the App Store", reports The Times Of India.

Apple is set to hold WWDC 19 from June 3 in San Jose, California. The five-day event will conclude on June 7 and it is expected that Cupertino-based tech giant will showcase new features coming to the operating systems running on its slew of devices. We can expect Apple to talk about new features and updates coming to iOS, macOS and watchOS.

As for the devices of 2019 are concerned, rumours around the upcoming iPhones have started to gain momentum. Several reports have now suggested that there will be three new iPhones - upgrades on iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. Some of the features that have appeared on the grapevine are a triple camera set up, wireless reverse charging in the 'premium' iPhones.

As far as the upgrade of the iPhone XR is concerned, there has been some speculation about the colour schemes. It is rumoured that two colours will be dropped and two new colours will be added. Apple, like every year, in all likelihood will unveil the new iPhones in September.
