“2009 was the last time the Apple faithful were treated to a new product category launch,” E. Werner Reschke writes for TGAAP. “The iPad made its debut just three years after the incredibly successful iPhone introduction. Nearly five years has passed since the iPad was announced, yet Apple has produced nothing ‘new.'”

MacDailyNews Note: The iPad was announced on January 27, 2010, by Steve Jobs at an Apple press conference held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.

“This Fall presents Apple another opportunity to break the cycle of just another set of upgrades to current product categories,” Reschke writes. “The iPhone 6 (aka iPhone Air) is most likely going to sport a larger display (or displays), but it may be a new product that steals the show.”

“Under Tim Cook’s leadership, there have been two special events in the Fall. A September show (2012, 2013) and an October show (2012, 2013). October is a special month for Apple as it is the beginning of its fiscal calendar,” Reschke writes. “Expect to see at least one of the two most highly rumored new product categories make center stage this Fall. Either the iWatch and/or the all-in-one Apple TV will be announced.”
