“We need to be open in order to contribute and harness our hopes and dreams to hear our divisions,” she said at the press event. “That’s why I have joined forces with Apple. Because they’re the company that has reimagined how we communicate. I joined in order to serve this moment because the Apple platform allows me to do what I do in a whole new way. Because they are in a billion pockets, y’all, a billion pockets. So I am honored and proud to be a part of this new platform to connect with people around the world to create positive change.”
Oprah revealed more information on the documentaries set to arrive. One’s called “Toxic Labor” about workplace harassment while the second will cover mental health.
Apple CEO Tim Cook met Oprah on the stage where a few tears were shed. “Thank you Oprah, I will never forget this,” he told her.
