Apple CEO Tim Cook recently sat down for an interview with Charlie Rose to talk about a variety of topics in light of Apple's recent blockbuster product announcements. The first hour of that conversation is available for streaming through Hulu now, and the second hour of it will air on PBS later Monday.

As expected, Cook and Rose discuss the newly announced phones and watches, but they dig deeper as well. Cook rather candidly discusses the post-Steve-Jobs era at Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), even sharing the story of how Jobs asked him to step in as CEO. He aggressively thrashes modern television and owns up to the Apple Maps fiasco ("We screwed up"). In general, Cook offers a clearer picture of the company he leads.

The full hour is embedded below.
