For what feels like the longest time, Apple has been pushing back against the idea of self-service repairs for its products. The arguments have varied, but the more consistent ones have been about user safety and wanting to make sure that the repairs get done properly. Basically, "keep it for the experts" and call it good.

By all accounts, Tim Cook appears to be pretty happy being the Chief Executive Officer of Apple. So it wouldn't be too surprising to hear that he wouldn't be keen on the idea of giving up the position to anyone else. And according to one story, Cook made sure Elon Musk of all people knew that wasn't a possibility.
Tim Cook, Apple's chief executive, is known to sit down with folks from time to time and have a discussion. In most cases, it's boilerplate stuff that leans into privacy. That is certainly the case with his latest interview.
