Earlier this morning, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook held a fiscal Q4 2013 earning call and on top of announcing the usual numbers and such, Cook also mentioned something about launching a “new product category” in 2014. In the Q&A session of the conference call, Tim Cook said that the company sees “significant opportunities ahead of us in both current product categories and new ones”, which will be rolled out “across 2014”. No specific products have been mentioned but it should be the iWatch that we’ve all been waiting for, as well as the rumored Apple TV set so fans of Apple, it’s time to start saving now and I think I know where your year-end bonus will end up.
As for other Apple news, if you’re into numbers and such, Apple’s Fiscal Year 2013 Q4 earning report shows USD$37.5 billion in revenue (up from USD$36 billion last year), USD$7.5 billion in net profit (down from USD$8.2 billion last year), 33.8million iPhones (up from 26.9 million units last year), 14.1 million iPads (up from 14 million last year), 4.6 million Macs (down from 4.9 million last year), and 3.49 million iPods during the past 90 days of business for the company.
“We’re pleased to report a strong finish to an amazing year with record fourth quarter revenue, including sales of almost 34 million iPhones. We are excited to go into the holiday with our new iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S, iOS 7, the new iPad mini with Retina Display and the incredibly thin iPad Air, new MacBook pros, the radical new Mac Pro, OS X Mavericks and the next generation iWork and iLife apps for OS X and iOS.” – Tim Cook, CEO of Apple.
