Employee E-mail from Tim Cook Offers Information about New Devices and iOS 7
Tim Cook recently sent an email to Apple employees noting the release of the new iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S and iOS 7. In addition to touting the new products, Cook addresses the collaboration among employees at Apple that makes all their products and services possible. Another thing he addresses is why the company wasn’t able to live stream the September iPhone event to employees. Last but not least, Cook makes clear that the free versions of iWork and iLife for iOS will only be available to customers who buy a new device. Customers who have older devices will still need to purchase the apps from the App Store.
Those of you interested in reading the email that was sent out can do so below:
Today is an important day for Apple. Many of you and your coworkers have been hard at work developing the new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, which are the result of incredible collaboration between hardware and software which only Apple can deliver. In the weeks and months to come, especially as we approach the holidays, our Retail teams will help millions of customers experience these amazing products for the first time. We are also thrilled to be launching iOS 7 next Wednesday.
In addition to the stunning new user interface you saw previewed at WWDC, iOS 7 has been engineered with deep integration with both iPhone 5s and 5c including advanced 64-bit technologies in iPhone 5s. iOS 7 will ship with iTunes Radio, our free Internet radio service, and we are making our mobile iLife and iWork apps available as free downloads for anyone who buys a new iOS device so they can do amazing things with their photos, videos, documents, spreadsheets and presentations.
We made these announcements in Town Hall here in Cupertino this morning. It is a small venue which limits our ability to show the keynote live across campus and to other locations as we like to do. The event is now available to stream on apple.com, so I hope you will take time to watch it. We've also posted a Q&A with Greg Joswiak on AppleWeb about the new products and the work behind them. I hope you are as excited about the new iPhone lineup as I am. Our teams do an incredible job taking complex, cutting-edge technology and making it simple for our customers. That's something everyone at Apple can be proud of.

Apple has the next best thing to a bottomless pit of cash. They can fix this if they wanted to. Just throw some money at it.
I remember the old days when they'd buy satellite time and give the media coordinates. We'd watch the stream at the station in real time.

What a poor excuse. Actually it is an outright lie that they can't stream the event. Millions of people waiting to hear about and purchase these premium products and we have to hear about
Them on a blog with goofy commentators behind the mic. How I miss Mr. Jobs.

If there's a recorded video of it, it could have been streamed. Lets be real.
