12-Year-Old App Developer Alex Knoll Meets Apple Hero Tim Cook


Alex, it’s so good
to have you back. And you look so nice. Now, do you dress like this
always, or just for me? Well, for a special occasion. This is a very special occasion. It also must be the socks. Oh, you have the Ellen socks on. Yes It’s nice. I like it. You look really great. Yeah, nice shot. He wants to make sure
you get the shot. So since you’ve
been on the show, I understand things are
happening for you at school. You’re getting chased by girls. Yes. The day after I was on
your show last season, I got out of the
car, and there were these girls behind the bushes. They started chasing after
me, I started running, and I went inside the school. So they didn’t catch me. Wow, they were hiding in
the bushes waiting for you? Yeah, I guess they were just
excited for me or something. Should have let them catch you. So tell me the update
on the Ability app. Yes, I’ve been working
hard all summer. on the app with your team. It’s really what’s going
to make this app a reality. Thank you, it’s been a dream
working with your team. We’re thrilled to help you. Thank you. I had a lot of fun
this summer as well. I went to a theme
park with my cousins. I just started seventh grade
and really loving it so far. Oh good. You’re probably
very good at school. Yeah, I love it. It’s a great school. Apple wanted to meet you, and
we sent you as a correspondent the Apple’s First Keynote
inside the Apple Park. Let’s take a look. Great. [MUSIC PLAYING] Hi, Ellen. It’s Alex. I’m at the new Apple Park. And I’m at their special event. I can’t wait to see
what they unveil today. What’s the weather today? Here’s the weather today. So now, Siri actually talks
to you on the Apple watch. Before you just saw
it on the screen. This is very cool. My app will help people
with disabilities. What’s it called? Mobility Apps. We’re working with Ellen
Team to get it developed. Honor to meet you. It’s my pleasure. We’re here today to talk
about some incredible product. I would love to work at Apple. They have such a great mission. It’s just so amazing
what they do here. Hi. Tim! Oh my goodness. This is so amazing to meet you. Oh, I’m getting emotions! Thank you! What did you think? That was amazing! So you’re a developer. Yes, I’m developing an
app that will help people with disabilities. I’m very excited to hear that. Thank you for doing that. I know a lot of people
want to work for you. So here’s my resume as well. Oh, thank you. We’d love to have you at Apple. Yes. I’d love to work
for you one day. You really dressed
up for our event. Yeah. This is incredible. I love it. That was incredibly mean. Thank you. Thank you. Ellen, you found
a great one here. So I just met Tim Cook. He’s kind of an
inspiration to me. Seeing him in person was
actually amazing and surreal. Very cool. Thank you so much. This was incredible, Ellen. I love you so much. Thank you. That was amazing. I’m sure. He’s so kind. and so humble. He’s an amazing person. Yeah he is very
kind, very humble, and we can see it was
incredible to meet him. What was your favorite
part about the whole thing? Well definitely meeting him. He’s so amazing. Meeting in person was very cool. And what’s the product
that you’re most excited about that you saw? All of them are really
cool, but my favorite was probably the iPhone 10. They improved the
battery life on it, and they still packed a
bunch of new features in it. So they now have
facial recognition so you can unlock the
phone with your face. There’s wireless charging on it. The new A11 chip, I think,
it’s the fastest chip in any smartphone ever. Really, it’s a game changer. All that is good except when
you say the facial recognition, what happens here in Hollywood? Our faces change a lot. What’s going to happen? I think they said in the event
that it adapts to your face so if you lose some weight. That’s what I mean
if we “lose weight.” All right, so meeting
Tim meant a lot to you. I got you this that I
wanted you to take home because I thought this would
be great for you to have. Thank you. You’re welcome. You’ll have this. Also, every year apple holds a
Worldwide Developers Conference where you learn about
all the new technologies and meet Apple engineers. It’s basically like
Coachella for tech people. Apple is giving you a ticket
to next year’s conference. What? Yes. Thank you!
