“Three comments this week by Apple CEO Tim Cook should have led to a reset of popular iOSphere rumors about the upcoming iPhone 6, iPad 5, and iPad mini 2, but probably didn’t,” John Cox writes for Network World.
“Cook made the comments during Apple’s Q2 earnings call with Wall Street analysts on Tuesday,” Cox writes. “He was responding to analysts’ questions, which themselves reflected several persistent strains of Apple rumors.”
Three popular rumors reset by Apple CEO Tim Cook:
1. Apple will be announcing new iPhones and/or iPads in April, May, June, July, or August.
2. Apple is flailing and failing in innovation; they’re copying rivals too much or not copying them enough; they’re losing market share; they should have cheaper phones and bigger-screened phones because the completion offer these.
3. Apple needs to release an iPhone with a 5-inch screen, because big-screen phones from rivals, especially Samsung have been so successful.
