Next up for post-split Apple: New product releases

“Now that Apple Inc. has completed its first stock split in more than nine years, a move that comes fresh on the heels of the biggest acquisition in its history, attention has shifted to the next big thing to boost interest in the company from an investment standpoint,” Rex Crum reports for MarketWatch.

“And the view from Wall Street should come as no surprise to anyone who has followed Apple at any time in recent years,” Crum reports. “‘It’s all about products,” said Gene Munster, of Piper Jaffray. ‘WWDC [Apple’s developers conference] last week was essentially laying the groundwork for the back half of the year.’ Munster said what many analysts that follow Apple believe: the company is setting itself up for a busy rest of the year, which could include the launch of long-awaited devices such as an Apple-branded television, a so-called iWatch and something in the arena of digital payments.”

MacDailyNews Take: Gene really wants an Apple television. Gene, if you haven’t done this already, go buy a TV – not a Samsung, for Jobs’ sake! – then take one of your Apple stickers and stick it over the logo on the TV.

“Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook has said this year that the company is going to branch out into new product areas,” Crum reports. “Now that the stock split is done, and Apple’s share are arguably more affordable to the average investor, the pressure will be on the company to deliver on the promise of new products, as well as the likely release of the iPhone 6 and, possibly, new versions of the iPad and Mac desktop[s] and [notebooks].”

  1. “Release of the iPhone 6 and, possibly, new versions of the iPad and Mac desktop[s] and [notebooks].”

    How about having Apple release the iPhones, iPads, iMacs and MacBooks instead.

  2. I want this in a new  TV:
    • iOS App Store (AirPlay from a phone works for some apps but the 100msec lag is too much for twitch games)
    • Support for game controllers (like other iOS apps)
    • Passive-stereoscopic 3D
    • Stereo 3D rendering in SceneKit
    • Lots and lots of 3D movies in the iTunes library
    • Three models: projector, 50″, and 80″
    • 4K resolution
    • $199 price tag

    3D TV is ready but there’s a chicken and egg content problem that only a company with Apple’s weight can solve.

  3. Ah yes, the season of expectations and fantasies of imminent Apple products has returned as noted by the article and comments above.

    Oh, and did you know that unicorns can fly?

  4. I like the idea of the iPatch! In fact, there are times when I think they should raise the Pirate flag over Apple headquarters again. 🙂

    Don’t wait for the next Elon Musk to set his sights on Apple’s customers.
