Tim Cook says ‘buy your mom an iPhone’ when asked about RCS support in iMessage

Apple CEO Tim Cook took to the 2022 Code Conference to say a few words about RCS support in iMessage. Answering a question from an audience member during a panel discussion with Jony Ive and Laurene Powell Jobs, Cook said Apple users aren’t keen on getting RCS support on the iPhone.

Cook’s exact response to the question about RCS on iPhones was as follows:

I don’t hear our users asking that we put a lot of energy on that at this point.

His response to the questioner was “buy your mom an iPhone” to solve the green bubble problem. Interestingly, the Apple CEO said RCS is not a priority “at this point.” So it looks like he didn’t completely dismiss the possibility of RCS support on iPhones in the future.
