Apple's 'Show Time' event was surprisingly packed with some great announcements. The highlight of the show, however, was the emotional moment towards the end when Tim Cook hugged Oprah Winfrey with tears in his eyes.
Yes, Apple's star-studded show ended with Apple's signature “One last thing..” surprise, which was Oprah Winfrey. The megacelebrity took the stage at the end to announce two of her new documentaries including one called 'Toxic Labor', which deals with sexual harassment in the workplace. Her second documentary hasn't been named yet, but it looks like it will explore topics like mental health, addiction and more.
The event brought together a rare collection of Hollywood stars like directors Steven Spielberg and J.J. Abrams, actress Jenifer Aniston, singer Sara Bareilles, and more. However, Oprah entered the stage in the end and literally stole the show.

“There has never been a moment quite like this one,” she said. “We have this unique opportunity to rise to our best selves in how we use and choose to use both our technology and our humanity. That's why I have joined forces with Apple.”
Once she was done addressing everyone, Tim Cook, who was visibly emotional, entered the stage and hugged Oprah. “Thank you, I will never forget this”, he said.
In addition to the shows, Winfrey also noted that she'll be bringing her book club to Apple's streaming service. The new Apple TV Plus service will be home to Apple's original shows and is all set to take on the likes of Netflix, Prime Video, etc. starting this fall.
