Apple may not have had the best year in comparison to their competitors. This year, they haven’t offered any new products and many are questioning the company’s ability to innovate a new product after losing Steve Jobs. Others seem to think that the stock prices may have something to do with the company’s lack of presence on the market. In other words, people are excited to see where Apple will go next year. According to a new Mashable report published on Dec. 11, Apple may have some crazy plans for the new year to reestablish the company on the market.
Many expected Apple to be the first company to introduce a SmartWatch, perhaps one called the iWatch. But instead, Pebble, Qualcomm, Nokia, Adidas and Samsung beat them to the punch, offering wearable watches this year. “I do believe Apple is working on elegant design for smartwatches some time in the future,” Apple expert Tim Bajarin reveals to Mashable.
So, what are the plans for 2014? Well, rather than developing new products, Apple may be trying to improve the ones they have. “You’ll absolutely see something with a larger screen,” says Bajarin, referring to new iPhones in 2014, but adds, “I don't think it'll be six inches — that would be a tablet.” One can imagine that Apple will also make changes to the software used on various tablets and iPhones.
But it sounds like the company may be focusing much of the attention on iCloud and getting serious about free storage. And while many are expecting to see the newest thing on the market, it could end up disappointing many people.
