Tim Cook promises exciting new products last year and we only got updates. We got the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C (slow seller), iPad Air,iPad mini Retina, Mac Pro and more Mac updates. Nothing entirely new. Most early new product rumors in 2013 have been focused on the iWatch. Will it come this year? Do not hold your breath.
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Tim Cook said that "There will be new categories. We're not ready to talk about it, but we're working on some really great stuff," Mr. Cook said. He did not go into detailed when asked if these new categories mean improvements to existing products or something new.
I have a feeling that the iWatch is still not ready in 2014. Apple got a bit quite on the TV front. I think there is where they are expected to release the next major new thing.
The markets are not impressed with Apple since the last earnings announcement. Apple used the drop in stock value to purchase $14 billion of its own stock. This means Apple is still believing in itself big time and Tim Cook also thinks that Apple is still a growth company.
