While asserting that Apple is on course to stun the market with fantastic new products, CEO Tim Cook on Friday said that he wants employees with all political viewpoints to feel welcome at the company, the media reported.

If anyone feels ostracized because of a particular political viewpoint, “I would encourage them to come talk to me,” Cook was quoted as saying at the company’s annual shareholder meeting at its headquarters in Cupertino, California by Business Insider.

Cook’s comments came in response to a question that flagged how an employee felt uncomfortable for not being a believer in “the left-wing view”.

Technology giants including Facebook and Google have in recent times come under the scanner of conservatives who allege that the companies have been biased against them.

According to reports, Cook also spoke about bringing fantastic new products to the market.

Apple could be planning an Augmented Reality (AR)-based headset that would work alongside an iPhone to enable users experience an environment where computer images are overlaid on the real world, according to a report in CNET on Thursday.

The tech giant, which captured 51 per cent share of a record 18 million smartwatch shipments worldwide in the fourth quarter of 2018 could surprise consumers with a new line up of Apple Watch and AirPods.
