It's been 15 years since Jobs unveiled the first iPhone at the Macworld expo in San Francisco on Jan. 9, 2007. Tomorrow is the 15th anniversary of the iPhone, and under Mr. Cook, Apple's position at the high end of the market has become unrivaled. Recently, cook's 2021 compensation was revealed to be $98.7 million (about 630 million yuan), but many people still believe that Cook is inferior to Jobs, but the reality?

Ray thinks, jobs and cook the attitude of apple and development idea is different, jobs was enlightened the wizards, like the recent frequent job-hopping, senior vice President of apple, building cars total project director Doug Field, they have to realize freedom of wealth, don't care about make more or less to earn a little money, wanted to achieve their goals.

Jobs treats the iPhone like a sculptor crafting art, not caring what others think, but creating the perfect phone, which isn't necessarily what consumers want, especially in today's hyper-competitive mobile industry.

Mr. Jobs once said 3.5 inches was the gold size for phones, and he thought Samsung was stupid when it introduced its first 4-inch phone, the Galaxy S. Now phones have screens around 6.5 inches, so Samsung is right.

Cook said the iPhone is a commodity that needs to meet the needs of the masses, and that Apple is now quick to improve when consumers report any problems.A few years ago, for example, Apple hired Angela Middot, CEO of Burberry. Ahrendts was president of retail channels. The woman wanted to turn Apple into a luxury product, causing iPhone sales to plummet and Apple's stock to plummet. Now Apple's flagship actually shows some value for money, but the increasingly expensive Android flagship is not appreciated.

Under Cook's leadership, Apple's market value has risen nearly tenfold to $3 trillion and iPhone sales have set new records.Meanwhile, Apple continues to create new businesses by developing its own chips and has topped Interbrand's global brand value rankings for nine consecutive years.

Making products with the mentality of making works of art may be ok in the short term, but it certainly won't work in the long term. Jobs' artistry and genius enabled the iPhone to drive the growth of the smartphone industry in its early days. Since Jobs' death, Cook has led Apple to embrace commercialism, and the two have helped keep the company at the top of the mobile phone business for a long time.
