A decade in charge of Apple, Tim Cook he is expected to retire in 2025, when the payment for 1 million shares of the company’s shares—somewhere around $153 million—to keep him in the company ends. According to the Bloomberg, there are internal rumors that the CEO just wants to stick around until the launch of a “new product category”, which could be the augmented reality glasses, slated to be released in 2025.
Under Cook’s command, Apple shares jumped 1,000%
In 2011, Tim Cook, then Steve Jobs’s executive director of operations, had the arduous mission of assuming the boss’s chair: it was Jobs who defined Apple to the world and was ahead of the brand’s main launches, such as the iPhone and iPad line.

Without Tim Cook, the company would not have had a 1,000% increase in the price of its shares on Nasdaq.

This because cook it just wants to hold the job until the next launch of a “new product category,” whether it’s the augmented reality glasses or the smart car without a steering wheel and pedals — the latter is an even more distant project than the former.
