On Tuesday, Apple announced its upcoming $US999 iPhone X.

The new device hits shelves November 3, but the announcement has already made waves across the stock market, Business Insider reported.

But what about the man behind Apple? Since taking the helm of the tech giant in 2011, CEO Tim Cook has established himself as a private individual, more focused on discussing Apple than his own life.

Still, we can piece together some clues about what his daily schedule looks like.

Here’s a look inside the typical routine of Apple’s CEO:

Cook typically wakes up brutally early. According to USA Today, he usually rises at 3:45 a.m.

Once he's up, he gets to work reading through some of the 700 to 800 emails he gets every day. He once told ABC that he's 'a bit of a workaholic' who reads 'the majority of those' messages.

Next, Cook hits the gym around 5 a.m. The CEO doesn't work out on Apple's campus, however. He prefers the privacy of an outside gym.

The Apple CEO is mum about most of his hobbies, but it's reported that he takes fitness seriously. He's credited his Apple Watch with helping him keep in shape and even lose weight.

It's not clear whether or not Cook enjoys a regular breakfast, but he dug into scrambled egg whites, sugar-free cereal, and unsweetened almond milk during a sit down with New York Times reporter Andrew Ross Sorkin. He also ate bacon, but prefers turkey bacon, apparently.

When it comes to his work, Cook is reportedly collaborative and a good listener, according to TIME.

Cook also has a reputation as a demanding boss. Business Insider reported that the CEO is known for his 'no-mercy' style, which includes hosting marathon meetings, questioning everything, and emailing employees 'at all hours.'

That doesn't stop Cook from occasionally grabbing lunch with random Apple workers in the company's cafeteria, though.

In addition to being at work early, Cook has previously said he's one of the last ones to leave the office, too.

When it comes to what he does outside of the office, the 'intensely private' Cook prefers to keep things quiet, according to Fortune.

It is known that he enjoys spending time outdoors, often hiking and riding his bicycle in his free time.

It's reported that Cook likes to catch seven hours of shut eye a night, meaning that he has to turn in by 8:45 p.m. to get enough rest before his early wake-up.
