Cook received a $US12 million bonus for the year ended September 29, the California-based company said on Tuesday in a filing. That's about $US33,000 ($46,000) a day.

The number of shares he receives partially depends on the performance of Apple's stock compared with other S&P500 companies.
Cook seems to be most enthusiastic about Apple's health-related efforts, which have gotten far more serious with last year's launch of ECG and irregular heart rhythm notifications features for the Apple Watch.
