"Apple strikes me as having quite a sticky product, and an enormously useful product to people that use it," Buffett told CNBC.

"I don't have an iPhone," he said. "I have an iPad. Somebody gave it to me though."

CNBC asked Buffet who would reach a $1 trillion valuation first, Apple or Berkshire Hathaway.
