At the Q2 2013 Earnings Report, Tim Cook suggested that the company will not be launching any new Apple products until this Fall and throughout 2014. This means that we may not even see a new iPad till this September, but it’s possible that the company will announce new products before then.
“Our teams are hard at work on some amazing new hardware, software and services we can’t wait to introduce this fall and throughout 2014,”
The word ‘introduce’ suggests that Apple is going to stay quiet about new products. This could hurt the company as its largest competitor, Samsung, continues to announce new products.
It sounds like a dangerous move, but Tim Cook has publicly said it so maybe he feels differently.
