"I am thrilled," Cook told CNBC's Josh Lipton on Friday. "Here's what we're seeing right now. The watch with LTE — the Series 3 Watch — we are sold out in so many places around the world. And we're working really hard to meet demand. We've sold out of iPhone 8 and 8 Plus in some stores, but we've got good supply there. You can see what's going on here this morning — I couldn't be happier."
Cook appeared in Palo Alto, California, to greet shoppers and employees as the iPhone 8 hit shelves. Employees cheered and did the "wave" and Cook, beaming, played along.
