Meanwhile, last month, Tim Cook also complimented a 9-year-old girl living in Dubai for designing an iOS app for iPhones. The girl, Hana Muhammad Rafeeq, had initially written to him claiming to be the youngest iOS developer. She had developed “Hanas,” a storytelling app that allows parents to record stories.
In response to her email, in which she described her app and other accomplishments, Apple’s CEO complimented her. Tim Cook wrote to her, “Congratulations on all of your impressive achievements at such a young age. Keep at it and you will do amazing things in the future”.
