Tim Cook was recently spotted at the Apple store at the Mall of the Emirates in Dubai.
Dubai resident Kifayat Khan’s selfie with the Apple CEO was one of the first photos on social media that alerted local netizens about his presence in the city, according to a report in Khaleej Times.
He was quoted saying, "It was a surprise meeting with Tim Cook and he was at the store for a short time. People were excited to see Tim Cook; they were introducing themselves and taking pictures with him during his short visit."
About his visit Cook tweeted, "A quick visit with customers and our fantastic team at the Apple Store, Mall of the Emirates. Thanks Dubai!"
This is Cook's second visit to the UAE, since 2014, when he had met His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Dubai Ruler, as well as top officials from Etisalat.
