Apple CEO Promises ‘New Product Categories’ This Year – iWatch, Anyone?
Along with Apple announcing its annual earnings, which have seen consistent success from established product lines over the past twelve months thanks to the introduction of iPad Mini and iPhone 5, CEO Tim Cook has stated that the most important objective for his company continues to be ‘creating the most innovative products’ and he has promised the potential of “exciting new product categories”.
Cook did not offer much more than this but leaves much to the imagination. What is known is that Apple will seek to expand on the current line-up of Mac computers, MacBooks, iPads, iPods and iPhones with a new iWatch which is expected later in the year and is quite possibly the product which Steve Jobs’ successor could be referring to here.
The actual iWatch has only been discussed in concept with a few Apple fan-boys throwing up imaginative interpretations of what the device might look like. The smart wristwatch is believed to feature Apple’s mobile and tablet operating system iOS and like its cousins, will also be a touchscreen device allowing apps to be used and the gadget to naturally function with the wearer’s existing devices in the iOS family.
Tim Cook has said that “our teams are hard at work on some amazing new hardware, software, and services that we can’t wait to introduce in the fall and into 2014. We continue to be very confident in our future product plans.”
