Apple CEO Tim Cook is apparently in the United Arab Emirates and was caught on camera at the Virgin Megastore in Abu Dhabi. Virgin Megastore is an official reseller of Apple products in the UAE so he could have just been making a round to see the visibility of Apple products in the region. He then visited the tallest building in the world- Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall where he scouted some additional electronics stores such as Jacky’s Electronics and Jumbo.

Tim Cook UAE



But the bigger question is why was Tim Cook in the UAE? Is Apple planning to open their stores in the country- possibly at Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world? Or will FaceTime be getting unblocked? There is also a possibility that he is here to talk to the Ministry of Education to get iPads into schools and Universities. We are looking for information and will update this as soon as we find out more.

UPDATE: According to Dubai Media Office, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed, the ruler of Dubai and the Vice President of the UAE met Tim Cook.

Thanks @BIGsAm for the heads up.
