Apple CEO Tim Cook believes the government and the private sector must work together to solve the world's problems.
"The problems we face cannot be solved solely by the government," Cook said as he spoke at the TIME 100 Summit in New York City on Tuesday. "We should not be looking for the government to solve all the problems. I think it requires the public sector, private sector and academia to work together to try and solve some of these major issues."
Cook called some issues ̵
"You know Apple – this is probably not known to many people here – but Apple does not have a PAC," he said. "Apple is probably the only big company I think or one of the few that doesn't have a PAC. I refuse to have one because it shouldn't exist."
Apple does not donate to any political candidates.
CEO of the iPhone manufacturer also touched on Apple's legal fight with the FBI if the government was entitled to unlock an iPhone and said the government was trying to move toward the company in a "very dishonest way".
The dispute began in December 2015, when the FBI achieved an iPhone 5C which was owned by one of the San Bernardino shooters who left 14 people dead. The phone was locked with a four-digit password; Apple refused to create software to enable the FBI to unlock the phone. The government finally bypass Apple by using a third party to unlock the phone, thus avoiding a court hearing between the Justice Department and Apple.
"And I wish the case would have gone to court to be honest," Cook said, adding that "our worst fear has been confirmed to be a very rigid case to begin with. i that this was not the government's finest hour. ”
