Apple may be primed for biggest year ever in 2017

“If you thought Apple’s last couple of years were big, just wait for 2017,” Shara Tibken writes for CNET.

“The launch of the large-screen iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in late 2014 caused Apple’s fortunes to soar,” Tibken writes. “It became the most profitable company in the world, and the following year, with the 6S and 6S Plus, was even bigger. But enthusiasm waned in 2016 with iPhone unit sales falling for the first time since the device hit the market in 2007.”

“This past year was largely a time for refinements for Apple, not entirely new markets. But 2017 could be a completely different story. If all the rumors about the company’s product lines are true, next year could be Apple’s biggest — ever,” Tibken writes. “Think, radically redesigned iPhones, revamped iPads and new product categories. And 2017 could be a big year for software and services, too.”

MacDailyNews Take: Yup.

As we wrote yesterday: 2016 is the nadir for Apple… In fact, we emphatically believe that will not be the case.

2016: The year Apple stumbled; and 2017 seems set to be an even tougher year or something – December 12, 2016


    1. One look at Apple financials in the last 7 years sure makes you out looking the total fool. Still, I do think of 2017 as a make or break year in regards to new (and importantly DESIRABLE) desktop Macs.

      1. Thinking Apple hasn’t done enough is not hate, it’s disappointment. I’ve been using and evangelizing Apple products since before 1984, and won’t stop any time soon, but my enthusiasm has waned. I do hope 2017 will rekindle that old feeling.

    2. Agreed. Cook sucks. He’s killing off Macs, ditching the Airports. I “see” nothing special about Apple in 2017. Same old iphone crap. Tim Cook doesn’t get it and never will.

    ” This is just the kinda pipeline story I like. Nuthin’ definite, nuthin’ too crazy, jus’ very hopeful. It lets me jus’ mosey down too the ol’ fishin’ hole, lean back, kick my shoes off and sip on shine all the live-long day. – T. “Opie” Cook 2017
