Such talks are typically wide-rangingCooks talk at the same event last year
covered topics including quarterly earnings, Apple TV, and his then-still-recent
succession of Steve Jobs. That talk was notable, however, for Cooks commitment
to improve working conditions at Apples worldwide chain of suppliers, in the
face of burgeoning controversy.
No one in our industry is doing more to improve working conditions than Apple,
Cook told attendees at the February 2012 Goldman Sachs conference. We are
constantly auditing facilities, going deep into the supply chain, looking for
problems, finding problems, and fixing problems. And we report everything
because we believe that transparency is so very important in this area.

questions over whether some of its linesincluding, especially, the iPadare
cannibalizing sales from more lucrative products.
Cook will speak at 10:15 a.m. ET Tuesday.
