Apple CEO Tim Cook delivers moving commencement speech about new iOS update

WASHINGTON (The News Desk) — Graduates at George Washington University were treated to an emotional, stirring commencement speech from Apple CEO Tim Cook on Sunday, who announced an update to the company’s popular iOS operating system.

“Today is one of the most important days in your life: it is the day you take the next step in your career, the day you begin to decide what kind of human being you want to be, not to mention the day iOS update 8.5 finally becomes available for download on all devices,” Cook told students at the university’s Washington, D.C. campus.

Cook told graduates to avoid living their lives “on the sidelines,” to believe in their capacity to do great deeds and also to prepare themselves for a host of fantastic new features in iOS.

“It was here, in Washington, D.C., that Dr. Martin Luther King challenged Americans to make real the promises of their democracy. Similarly, it is here that I announce that the iOS update will make it easier than ever to save and access photos across all your devices.”

Cook concluded his address by challenging graduates to face the world’s problems and injustices head-on, and to follow the example of Apple founder Steve Jobs.

“Steve would so proud if he were here today, in front of so many ambitious young people, knowing that soon everyone will have access to a range of new cloud storage features.” ♦
