Ellen DeGeneres sent a 12-year-old app developer to meet Tim Cook at iPhone X release event

Ellen DeGeneres sent 12-year-old Alex Knoll to the iPhone X release event, where the youth got a chance to meet Apple CEO Tim Cook.




Post Falls, Idaho resident Knoll previously appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in May 2017 for his forthcoming Ability App. The Ability App won The Inventor's Challenge, inviting students through high school to create novel and potentially viable solutions to world-wide problems.

The app will give users information on the locations of wheelchair ramps, accessible hiking trails, restaurants with braille menus, grocery deliveries, and occupational therapies.

Because of Knoll's work on the app, The Ellen DeGeneres Show sent him to the iPhone X release event on Sept. 12, where he spoke with Cook briefly after the event. The visibly emotional Knoll presented Cook with his resume, and talked about his app.



Apple has granted Knoll an admission to the 2018 World Wide Developer's Conference, which DeGeneres called "Coachella for tech people."
