In the 14-minute video, the Apple CEO goes through the phone and answering some of her burning questions.

"What kind of big picture scenario do you this kind of fitting into people's lives in the future?"

Cook's response: "You know I am so excited about AR. I think AR is one of these very few profound technologies that we'll look back on one day and say, how did we live our lives without it."

Although Apple is dabbling in it today on Apple devices, Cook added "I can't wait for it to be even more important in collaboration and so forth. I'm AR fan number one. I think it's that big."
