We are really excited about the upcoming releases of iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks, and we are laser-focused and working hard on some amazing new products that we will introduce in the fall and across 2014.
Cook pumped these same expectations during the previous 2013 Q2 press release as the timeframe for new ‘amazing’ products. Rumours have recently attributed the launch of the iPhone 5S, ‘budget’ iPhone, fifth generation iPad and second generation iPad mini this fall. Stay tuned, folks (and get your wallets ready).
