Tim Cook Appears At Palo Alto Apple Store For iPhone Launch

With the anticipation for the iPhone 5S & iPhone 5C, fans are swarming Apple stores to obtain the new device. In order to quash fears that the company is past the point of innovation, CEO Tim Cook made a surprise appearance at the Palo Alto Apple store to see how sales were going.

The exec chatted with people waiting in line for the two new phones before heading into the store to welcome everyone according to The Verge. This was not Cook’s first visit to the store: he made an appearance there last October when the outlet reopened while Steve Jobs ushered visitors in October 2010 for the launch of new iPads.
